The Progressive Democrats of America national organization has endorsed Doug Applegate as the one truly progressive Democratic candidate in his run for the 49th Congressional District.
"Col. Applegate has not only served our country with honor, but is a stalwart champion on issues important to all of us. We enthusiastically endorse him and look forward to him being a fighter for us all as CA-49's representative in DC. Doug very nearly defeated the incumbent, Darrell Issa in 2016, and we're excited to be helping him win the seat in 2018." Donna Smith, Executive Director, Progressive Democrats of America.
“The endorsement of the national Progressive Democrats of America puts wind in our sails. Together PDA members and I will continue the fight for working families and progressive principles in the 49th. Thank you for your support and I look forward to us winning this seat together.” Col. Doug Applegate
