McLaughlin is a strong progressive voice from a party beyond the reach of corporate interest. She spearheaded many strong oppositions to big business, banks, and corruption. She maintains a strong inclusive and progressive team which allows many strong voices to be heard. The only issue is she has little name recognition throughout the state and that is a crime. We need bold decisive leadership, we need McLaughlin to lead CA in a progressive wave of strength, but most importantly we need her name to be known as a staple of strength for progressives, for greens, and for the DSA. Therefore I believe we should cast our support behind McLaughlin.
