VICTORY: Democracy for America celebrates James Thompson’s victory in Kansas’s 4th primary
James Thompson just won his primary in Kansas's 4th Congressional District.
DFA was a strong supporter of Thompson in his 2017 special election race and is supporting him once again in his race against his now incumbent Republican rival.
Statement from Democracy for America Chair Jim Dean on James Thompson's 2018 primary victory in Kansas's 4th Congressional District:
"James Thompson's shockingly strong showing in his 2017 special election was one of the very first signs that a progressive tsunami was possible in 2018. Thompson's big primary victory tonight makes it clear that the energy and passion that helped propel him in 2017 is only growing stronger as we get closer to November.
"Democracy for America members were honored to stand with James Thompson in 2017, we were thrilled to stand with him once again in today's primary, and we can't wait to battle alongside him for critical inclusive populist priorities like Medicare for All, a $15 minimum wage, and criminal justice reform through November and beyond." -- Jim Dean, Chair, Democracy for America
