The following is a press release from Progressive Kick:
SuperPAC Shoots for Moon
Outside $$ enter House of Delegates District 20 race
David Moon is getting outside help in his bid for the Maryland House of Delegates.
Progressive Kick, a national progressive SuperPAC, has jumped in to the race with an online, mail and phone campaign supporting David Moon in District 20.
Progressive Kick’s online video, playing now on computer screens and smart phones across the district, touts Moon’s record as a grassroots activist and his many endorsements with the tag line “One small step for Moon, one giant leap for Maryland.”
“David Moon stands head and shoulders over all the other progressives in this race. He is the absolute best. Progressive Kick only endorses truly progressive candidates all across the country, but we rarely find a candidate that mirrors our values as clearly as David Moon. If elected he would not only support progressive causes with speeches and his vote, but he will use his skills to build coalitions and make things happen. It would be a tragedy if David Moon were not elected because he can make a real difference,” says Joshua Grossman, President of Progressive Kick.
Progressive Kick is working to boost turnout for the June 24th primary with direct mail and targeted phone outreach. This is the first year Maryland is not holding the primary in September. Nine candidates are on the ballot, and voters can choose up to three to fill two open seats. Early voting begins June 12th.
David Moon is a grassroots organizer, campaign strategist and founder of Maryland Juice, named one of America’s top political blogs by The Washington Post. He’s worked with Latino, African American and civil liberties groups. Collaborating with late Internet activist Aaron Swartz, he was instrumental in defeating the notorious SOPA/PIPA Internet censorship legislation. Moon’s endorsements include African American, Latino and labor organizations, and elected officials including Congressman John Delaney, State Senators Jamie Raskin and Rich Madaleno and Takoma Park Mayor Bruce Williams, among others.
Progressive Kick is a national progressive SuperPAC working to elect candidates for U.S. Congress and state legislatures who will be responsive to the interests of all members of our society, not just the most powerful. Progressive Kick gives voters the facts they need to make informed decisions and mobilizes them to participate in the electoral process.
