Voters From OH-IN-WV-NC Have Chance To Continue Electoral Momentum

Friends, Colleagues, and Newcomers to the Hispanic Caucus—

Are you fired up? Get ready, because you don’t want to miss this chance to boot out GOP elected officials and replace them with diverse, outstanding Democratic candidates in November. We also need to defend our incumbent Democratic officials by using the power of the ballot to retain their needed public service. With the 2018 primary results completed in Illinois and half-way done in Texas, voters from West Virginia, Ohio, North Carolina, and Indiana have a genuine shot to continue flipping seats once thought of as “un-flippable.” With that, Democrats Abroad’s Hispanic Caucus is thrilled to continue with our endorsements for the below candidates running for office (with their names in bold font).
