When did we forsake ourselves?

Let’s get this ship back on track! #DNC #Progressive @OurRevolution @justicedems @BrandNew535 #wecan #wemust

On Father's Day and every day, we stand up to say #FamiliesBelongTogether #AbolishICE

My gut tells me that if Bernie has the best chance of beating Trump, that most Democrats would still rather run somebody else and lose than run Bernie and win.

He’s literally the most popular elected official in the country. He could beat Trump.

"As Maine goes, so goes the nation." Last night's historic victory in Maine has massive implications for the rest of the country. Mainers just voted to protect #RankedChoiceVoting and it could mean that other states will begin taking up #RCV in the coming years. Exciting stuff!

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is running for Congress in NY's 14th and election day is June 26th!

Why I Support Peter Jacob For Congress 2018

Unity Results from supporting Common Interest over Special Interests!

I strongly urge all registered Democrats and Unaffiliated to vote for Peter Jacob in the NJ-7 primary on 6/5. Peter has name recognition and the experience running one of the most cost effective congressional campaigns in the U.S. during 2016, an example that he walks the talk to get big money out of politics. In addition, his support for health care for all, a $15 minimum wage, free tuition at public universities and a social safety net that works distinguishes Peter from his “progressive in name only” opponents.

For a complete synopsis of his position on issues, visit his website: https://www.jacob2018.com/issues/.

2016 wasn’t business as usual for the GOP machine in NJ7 because it was at a loss to wage a negative campaign and as a result Peter achieved the best results for the Democratic Party against this incumbent ever (43%).

Peter is the only NJ7 Democratic candidate endorsed by Bernie Sanders (and other progressive organizations like Justice Democrats, Progressive Democrats of America, Brand New Congress) for his People’s Platform which add to the aforementioned issues: End the Private Prison Industry, Equal Pay for Equal Work, Gender Equality, Protecting Net Neutrality, Strong Gun Safety Reforms, and more.

Our candidates’ goals and positions matter. How in touch they are regarding NJ7 issues matter. Who they accept campaign contributions matter. The values you express, and the candidates you support at the voting booth, matter. Please vote June 5 and support Peter Jacob.

Sincerely,

Hugh Campbell

LTE – The Psychology Behind My Vote for Peter Jacob

To the editor:

Maslow’s hierarchy of needs is a motivational theory in psychology comprising a five-tier model of human needs. Maslow stated that our most basic need is for physical survival, and this will be the first thing that motivates our behavior. Once that level is fulfilled the next level up is what motivates us, and so on.

NJ SPOTLIGHT: SOME NJ CONGRESSIONAL PRIMARY CANDIDATES ARGUE PARTY-LINE POLITICS ARE UNFAIR

“What point are the primaries if you already know you are going to support the line?” asks Peter Jacob, one of three Democrats remaining in the primary in the 7th District in Central Jersey. “Is it fair? Not at all. Even if I were an incumbent, I would love to see an end to this system.”

Two years ago, Jacob was the only Democrat on the primary ballot, getting the party line in two of the six counties that are partly or wholly in the district — another candidate had gotten some endorsements but wound up without enough signatures on his petition to get on the ballot. Jacob went on to get 43 percent of the vote, the largest win by a Democrat in a decade, but lost to Republican Rep. Leonard Lance, who has held the seat for a decade. more…

LTE – Peter Jacob, Clear Choice for CD7

To the editor,

In the fall of 2016, I was driving down Main Street in Flanders. As I always do before an election, I was conferring with my sister about the available choices for voting on my way to the polls. The last thing I said before I hung up, “You are going to want to make sure you check out Peter Jacob.” He is a 30 year old social worker who works with the homeless. more…

WNYC – With Control of the House at Stake, National Democrats Tangle with Locals

With Control of the House at Stake, National Democrats Tangle with Locals

In the last Congressional election, Peter Jacob ran a shoestring effort to run for Congress against an incumbent Republican in New Jersey, and came closer to winning than any Democrat in a decade.

“We spent two bucks per vote in 2016 and had the strongest campaign against Leonard Lance,” Jacob said.

But when Jacob announced he was running again in 2018… more…
