Go Tammy and Elizabeth!
And if ever there was a state that could use someone from this group, it would have to be Arizona!

It appears that we may elect a balancing element to Congress in the fall, which is desperately needed!

Living in Florida I am well versed with Alan Grayson, a good man but one who is tough enough to stand up to the motley crew he must deal with constantly. Having lived in Massachusetts, most my life, and followed Elizabeth Warren before she was running in that State, I can only hope that she will win.

If it is the Massachusetts of old she will win, but like so many things in this Country, Massachusetts is a changing Commonwealth and has elected in some people that have truly amazed me. I keep thinking where is this Massachusetts when we were the only ones who did NOT vote for Nixon to be President but 49 States did......now that was sticking our necks out in the right place. So we will see if the "old" Massachusetts will get it's act together again and get Elizabeth elected.

Glad to see that there are people coming out of the OWS and getting into politics.

A sort of a counter-balance, attack on the teabaggers.

Ty, Cal.

Tiffany Renee from Occupy Petaluma, California is also running for Congress. She is a good person and a strong candidate.

Yes, we must support them as much as we can. These are our true American patriots! There will truly be something to celebrate if Grayson, Warren and the others win. Maybe some of the gray hairs I've gotten these past few years will return to their normal color....LOL.

I'm so glad to hear this! I, too, will do all I can to support them--they've got an uphill battle all the way (just like to 60's and 70's).
I wish Texas had an "occupy" candidate--we sure could use a change from our fat cat, "been in office forever" GOP's!!
