Ilya Sheyman is an organizer, working previously for Democracy for America and MoveOn.org. He supports Medicare for All and holding Wall Street accountable and says, “I am sick and tired of Democrats who refuse to stand up and fight back for progressive values that make a difference in people’s lives.”
Ilya’s primary election was March 20th, the first big House primary in the country that pits a bold progressive against a corporate Democrat. The winner will take on a vulnerable Tea Party Republican in Illinois’ 10th district. He earned our endorsement, and we mobilized to help him win.
