National progressive organization Our Revolution has endorsed Steve Holecko for state representative.
In the organization's own words, "Campaigns end. Revolutions endure. The next step for Bernie Sanders' movement is Our Revolution, which will fight to transform America and advance the progressive agenda that we believe in."
Our Revolution considers endorsements of candidates who have been endorsed by local affiliates. Holecko says that his selection, along with a small number of other northeast Ohio candidates endorsed by the Cuyahoga County Progressive Caucus, is a very welcome validation of years of work.
"The Sanders campaign inspired a tremendous grassroots movement for progressive change, here in northeast Ohio. I made it a personal cause to keep that movement alive, with the Progressive Caucus, and dozens of caucus members are now running for office up and down the ballot.
"Our Revolution has taken on much the same mission at a nationwide scale. It's truly an honor to be recognized by them alongside a shortlist of amazing local progressive candidates including Dennis Kucinich, Mike Skindell, Yvonka Hall, and Kyle Earley."
