Here’s the ultimate “2020 Super Progressive Candidates” list of truly bold progressives running for national office. 82 true Lefties ran in the November 3rd General Election.

16 Super Progressives won their races. 10 are incumbent winners, and 6 winners are new Members of Congress.

LAST UPDATED: November 30, 2020

Two Criteria

What makes a candidate “super?” A super progressive meets two criteria:

  1. He or she supports single-payer Medicare for All.
  2. She or he accepts NO corporate money.

Based on the above criteria, candidates invariably stand on a super progressive platform. They support policies like the Green New Deal, free public higher education, economic justice and human rights for all, and public-funded elections.

Support super progressives, state-by-state, for a Progressive Congress.

Giving: For a Progressive Congress

To help elect a progressive Congress, I aim to make a small donation to every super progressive candidate on this list. When I do, I put the “” after his/her name.

Do you have a giving plan to help fund a super progressive Congress? Do you focus on a few candidates, or many? Tell us about it in the comments.

Together, we get the job done.
