Cara McClure, Receives National Recognition Named a Bold Progressive Champion by the Progressive Change Campaign Committee Aug 13, 2018 — Cara McClure, who is running for Public Service Commission Place 1 in Alabama, was named a 2018 Champion by the Progressive Change Campaign Committee, which recognizes candidates from around the country who are fighting for progressive priorities and looking out for the needs of everyday families. One hundred ninety-seven candidates have been named 2018 Champions nationally. “Our 2018 Champions across the country are committed to solving big problems affecting their communities,” said Marissa Barrow, a spokesperson for the Progressive Change Campaign Committee. “Selected for their bold vision, these candidates are highly capable leaders ready to make change.” The candidates on our Champions List are running great campaigns powered by the grassroots, not corporate interests, said Stephanie Taylor, co-founder of the Progressive Change Campaign Committee. We're proud to support them as they take power back for their communities and turn big ideas into action for working families. The Progressive Change Campaign Committee (PCCC) is a million-member grassroots organization building power at the local, state, and federal levels, and advocating for economic populist priorities like expanding Social Security, debt-free college, Wall Street reform, and the public option. The PCCC has raised over $25 million to support progressive candidates and committees from small-dollar, grassroots donations, including $1.1 million to support Elizabeth Warren’s Senate run in 2012. In 2017, 50 PCCC-supported candidates won across the country, flipping 26 seats from red to blue. Find out more at BoldProgressives.org.
