The Washington Post, the Baltimore Sun, Roll Call, the Hill, good lord even Maryland Scramble - we all hold our collective and metaphorical heads in shame today. We’ve been scooped by the Orlando Sentinel on a story right under our noses. How could I have missed this?
Congressional candidate Susannah Randolph was one of three nationally to win endorsements Monday from two progressive politics groups that call themselves the “Elizabeth Warren wing” of the Democratic Party.
Randolph was endorsed by the Progressive Change Campaign Committee and Democracy for America, which each claim more than 1 million members nationally and more than 50,000 in Florida.
Randolph, a former professional progressive activist and former top aide for U.S. Rep. Alan Grayson, D-Orlando, is running in Florida’s 9th Congressional District, which Grayson now represents. The district includes much of central, south and east Orange County, all of Osceola County and northeast Polk County.
The two groups also endorsed two women running in Congressional districts in Maryland, Joseline Peña-Melnyk and Jamie Raskin.
Let me be the first to say: “Oh. My. God. I had no idea.” There goes my Pulitzer Prize for investigative journalism.
Somebody call the fact checkers at the Sentinel. We need a cleanup in Aisle 3.
