(Wednesday) the New Hampshire House of Representatives voted overwhelmingly in favor of HB 1170, a bill to abolish the death penalty, by a vote of 225-104.

The New Hampshire legislature passed repeal measures two other times—in 2000 when it passed in both chambers but was vetoed by the governor, and in 2009 when it was passed in the House but failed to get support in the Senate. We’re hopeful that the third time is the charm! […]

PS-The bill will now go on to the Senate for consideration. If you live in New Hampshire, please contact your Senator now to express your support for repeal! If you live elsewhere but have friends or family in New Hampshire, please share this message with them as well.





Senator Bernie Sanders recently returned from a trip to the south.

Watch Bernie’s interview with Ed Schultz from Columbia, South Carolina where they discuss what progressives need to do to win in 2014.

MSNBC’s Chris Hayes says, “This ad’s basically a masterpiece.”

It’s not every day a political TV ad goes viral.

Carl is the definition of a true progressive leader — he supports prosecuting Wall Street bankers, increasing Social Security benefits, passing Senator Warren’s student loan bill, and reversing Citizens United.

His special election is right around the corner on October 15, voters are just starting to pay attention, and he needs our support.
