Progressive Democrats of America
Norman Solomon

Norman Solomon (23)

Now, more than ever, it is vital to elect candidates who exemplify the values for which Democracy for America (DFA) stands: Community, Security and Liberty. That is why DFA-Marin is proud to endorse Norman Solomon for Congress from the 2nd Congressional District.

Norman Solomon’s campaign for Congress scored a major victory last weekend when opponent Jared Huffman failed to win the endorsement from California Democratic Party delegates, who cast votes from all over the new congressional district that stretches from the Golden Gate Bridge to the Oregon border.

Norman Solomon at MLK Jr. Day in Eureka

Written by

A powerful speech by Democratic congressional candidate Norman Solomon at the NAACP's annual Martin Luther King Jr. Day event at the Adorni Center in Eureka.

Inside the well-appointed kitchen of Gary Birnbaum’s modernist Strawberry home, Democratic Congressional candidate Norman Solomon stood wide-eyed, absorbing the backdrop of his latest campaign house party. Outside the French doors, under the purplish flare of twilight, a spacious terrace looked out over Richardson Bay and the Tiburon peninsula. Solomon, respected for his intellectual heft and his willingness to stray from conventional political wisdom, stated the obvious: “We’re at such a great venue.”

North Coast Up for Grabs

Written by

The June 2012 primary is still seven months away. But that does not mean that the race among Democrat candidates for the newly drawn 2nd U.S. Congressional District is not heating up. On the contrary, the lines are being drawn between the contenders. The North Coast promises to be the linchpin to the nomination. As reported earlier, there are those who believe that the stands on issues between the two principle candidates for the nomination (Jared Huffman and Norman Solomon) are all but indistinguishable.

Conventional politics in the United States focuses on elections, while left activists typically argue that political change comes not from electing better politicians but building movements strong enough to force politicians to accept progressive change.
