Meet our 2020 Candidates who are going to TURN PA BLUE
This page includes candidates that we believe will help further our collective goal of turning PA Blue from the State House to the White House! Whether we are working to flip seats from red to blue, protect Democratic seats or increase Democratic turnout in traditionally red districts, there is something for everyone! Volunteers can pick and chose with whom and where they want to work, as well as how they want to volunteer. Our candidates appreciate you and help is needed everywhere! This page will be updated again after the June 2nd primary when we have our full 2020 Democratic slate ready to go.
This page will change frequently as more candidates make campaign announcements and update their information. There are obviously many ways to group the regions of Pennsylvania, but to keep things simple, we will be grouping our candidates according to the PA Dems Regional Caucuses.
