We are proud to support the democratic process, and the full breadth of candidates in the running for the 2020 Democratic Party presidential nomination. As such, we reaffirm our commitment to supporting a fair and free impartial election, including before, during and after the Democrats Abroad Global Presidential Primary." Full statement, here.
