Tom Geoghegan, labor lawyer and author of quite a few fantastic books about democracy and economic justice, has announced his candidacy for Congress on DailyKos. He’s running in the special election to replace Rahm Emmanuel in Illinois’s 5th congressional district. His campaign website is here, and you can donate money via ActBlue.
Progressives couldn’t ask for a better candidate or opportunity. Certainly I’ll be sending him money and doing whatever else I can for his campaign. I strongly urge you to do the same.
