John Fitzgerald, not a Kennedy–but a fiery progressive. Fitzgerald is challenging 21-term Rep. George Miller in the June primary, to send a message from progressive Democrats to their leaders: “don’t ignore us”. From healthcare to warfare, failure to hold BushCo accountable, to Wall St. bailouts, Fitzgerald has strong and thoughtful progressive positions detailed here. He is a home painting contractor who’s been burned by the housing bubble burst, and Fitzgerald has never run for office before. And he gets extra points for political courage: he calls for a new investigation of the events of 9/11.
