VICTORY: DFA-endorsed Dana Balter wins NY-24 primary over DC Democratic insiders
In another stunning blow to DC Democratic insiders tonight, Democracy for America (DFA)-endorsed candidate Dana Balter just won the Democratic primary in New York's 24th Congressional District overcoming tremendous outside spending from the DCCC and others with the help of local and national grassroots progressive support.
DFA Jim Dean on Dana Balter's primary win over Democratic insiders and path to victory over her GOP opponent this Fall:
"In tonight's primary, Dana Balter defeated an anti-choice opponent being propped up by out-of-touch Washington insiders looking for someone to do their bidding in Congress, and that's precisely what she's going to do again this fall against Republican John Katko.
"All across New York's 24th District and the country, grassroots Democrats united behind Dana Balter because they know that to defeat a Republican who stands with Trump 91% of the time, we need a progressive leader who is willing to fight for the bold, inclusive populist reforms working families need 100% of the time.
"Democracy for America members were thrilled to stand with Dana Balter in this primary fight, and, as excited as we are about her victory over Democratic insiders tonight, we can't wait to fight alongside her to victory over her out-of-touch, right-wing opponent this November." -- Jim Dean, Chair, Democracy for America
