Progressive Turnout Project Endorses Kara Eastman in NE-02
Organization backs pragmatic progressive in run for Congress
OMAHA—Progressive Turnout Project (PTP) today endorsed Kara Eastman in Nebraska. The organization is proud to support the candidate who has a pragmatic progressive vision that will serve all Nebraskans.
“Kara Eastman is the only candidate in this race who will take the lead on healthcare, education, and climate change, and also fight to remove corporate influence and dark money from our elections,” said Executive Director Alex Morgan.
Eastman supports The Fair Elections Now Act and the Government by the People Act which would provide essential reforms to give everyday Americans a greater voice in our electoral process.
“We’re impressed with Kara’s progressive agenda and we look forward to doing everything we can to get out the vote and get her elected on November 6,” said Morgan.
Today’s endorsement is part of a larger effort by Progressive Turnout Project to expand its impact in the 2018 election. The organization requests campaigns to complete an endorsement questionnaire that asks about critical voting rights issues such as the restoration of the Voting Rights Act, automatic voter registration, early voting, no-excuse absentee voting, and voter ID laws.
