The Democratic Socialists blew the roof off the Nevada Dems and took over the party. How do we progressives, liberals, democratic socialists and lefties do that here in New Mexico?
On March 6, 2021, a coalition of progressive candidates backed by the local chapter of the Democratic Socialists of America took over the leadership of the Nevada Democratic Party, sweeping all five party leadership positions in a contested election that evening. Judith Whitmer, who had been chair of the Clark County Democratic Party, was elected state chair. Judith will joined us to talk about how an insurgent grassroots effort of dedicated progressives prevailed over the DSCC and the Harry Reid machine.
