New Dems get involved in key primaries

News: The political arm of the New Democrat Coalition is endorsing a slate of five female candidates in high-profile districts.

In the most notable endorsement, the New Dems are going with Joanna Weiss over state Sen. Dave Min in California’s 47th District. This is the toss-up seat vacated by Rep. Katie Porter’s (D-Calif.) Senate run.

The New Dems are also supporting Janelle Stelson in PA-10 over Mike O’Brien in the race to knock off Rep. Scott Perry (R-Pa.).

Ashley Ehasz is the group’s favored candidate to take on Rep. Brian Fitzpatrick (R-Pa.) in November.

In Michigan’s 8th District, where Rep. Dan Kildee (D-Mich.) is retiring, New Dems are backing state Sen. Kristen McDonald Rivet. We scooped her entrance into the race last year.

In Delaware’s at-large House seat, the group endorsed runaway favorite state Sen. Sarah McBride. McBride would be the first openly transgender member of Congress if elected.
