Yes, but we also need to support a candidate that can win and, in order to win, the candidate will need to be able to pull from Pedroza's base. Chris Malan is uniquely positioned to capture this demographic. I am talking about people that are generally in support of Democratic values such as…

Yeah, Plato's Republic outlines a vision of an ideal society that is fairly communistic.

You claim that someone from her campaign attempted to get nomination signatures from here through shady means. And yet, without proof, that is complete hearsay. And, you ominously claim that she is not interested in "building bridges" because....why exactly? Because she works hard,…
