Today’s Blue America candidate is Georgia state Senator Regina Thomas. She’s taking on one of the very worst and most reactionary of all the congressional Blue Dogs, John Barrow, in a district that encompasses much of Savannah and Augusta. Barrow votes more frequently for the Bush agenda and with the GOP than any other Democrats, although he’s sometimes tied with Nick Lampson and Jim Marshall. Regina will be blogging live at Firedoglake today at 2pm (Georgia Peach Time). Blue America worked with singer-songwriter Jason Joseph to put together a little music clip for Regina. If you’d like to help us get this spread around, please consider donating to Regina’s campaign at our Blue America ActBlue page today.
To my mind, it is a bit embarrassing that our great country is the only major country on the planet not to guarantee paid family and medical leave.— Bernie Sanders (@BernieSanders) September 24, 2021
Let us pass the reconciliation bill and finally put an end to that international embarrassment once and for all.
