Massachusetts Progressive Candidates for Congress
Ed Markey for U.S. Senate
Ed Markey (D) incumbent – “Ed Markey for U.S. Senate.” Sen. Markey is a co-sponsor of S.1129 – Medicare for All National Health Insurance Program. Still, he does accept some corporate campaign money, which would normally eliminate him from this list. However, based on the work he did on the Green New Deal, I choose to include him. He is much more progressive than most U.S. senators, and we need progressives in the Senate! In addition, renown progressive Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez has endorsed Sen. Markey.
