An interesting email coming out of the Lee Harris campaign. It reads:
As you know, our campaign is gaining steam. With election day right around the corner, we want to make one final push for the endorsement of Our Rev.
Add your support to the endorsement of Lee Harris for County Mayor by Our Rev.
We believe Lee Harris has a track record worthy of an endorsement from Our Rev.
We ask that you stand with us in adding your support so we can win this important endorsement.
We have ten days until Election Day. Support this movement, and with your help we can drive real progress in Shelby County.
All the best to you,
Assistant Director for Digital Communications
What is Our Rev? I did not know. Perhaps a religious group of reverends? So I googled.
No, Our Rev refers not to reverends (although some appear to be involved), but means Our Revolution.
Their website explains, “Campaigns end. Revolutions endure. The next step for Bernie Sanders’ movement is Our Revolution, which will fight to transform America and advance the progressive agenda that we believe in.”
It continues, “Our Revolution will reclaim democracy for the working people of our country by harnessing the transformative energy of the ‘political revolution.’ Through supporting a new generation of progressive leaders, empowering millions to fight for progressive change and elevating the political consciousness, Our Revolution will transform American politics to make our political and economic systems once again responsive to the needs of working families.
“Our Revolution has three intertwined goals: to revitalize American democracy, empower progressive leaders and elevate the political consciousness.”
Ourrevolution.com goes on to list all the candidates they endorse. There is a big page full of photos of people from all over the U.S. seeking office.
It’s obviously a very left wing group.
And Lee Harris wants the endorsement of these people for Shelby County! That tells you all you need to know about him.
