PCCC’s first endorsement for the election cycle, Carl Sciortino, is gaining a lot of momentum this week!
Carl is the clear progressive choice to represent Massachusetts’ 5th Congressional District: he supports prosecuting Wall Street bankers, Elizabeth Warren’s Glass-Steagall bill, increasing Social Security benefits, Medicare For All, and reversing Citizens United. A self-proclaimed “Massachusetts liberal,” he’s got the support of other progressive leaders like Reps. Alan Grayson, Mark Takano, Keith Ellison, and Raul Grijalva.
Carl put out a heartwarmingly awesome ad this week and garnered a ton of media coverage — MSNBC’s Chris Hayes said “This ad’s basically a masterpiece.” Carl has gotten coverage in Politico, Boston Globe, Washington Post, the Daily Beast, the New York Times blog, and more. He’s appeared on MSNBC and CNN, and will be on again this weekend!

But candidates don’t just win on their own — even though Carl’s got incredible progressive values and a strong campaign team, he needs volunteers to Call Out The Vote and let voters know Carl’s the bold progressive choice.
Our Call Out The Vote system is super easy to use — you can do it right from your home, we give you the script, and you’re only connected to live people (no busy signals, no voicemail, no disconnected numbers). In the 2012 election, PCCC members made over 2.2 million calls that changed the election, and over 574,000 calls for Elizabeth Warren alone.
My family is from Massachusetts, so I’ll say it: Call Out The Vote is wicked easy, and wicked satisfying.
