National progressive organization Our Revolution has endorsed Michael J. Skindell for state representative.
Like the local northeast Ohio affiliate, the Cuyahoga County Progressive Caucus, Our Revolution works to sustain the grassroots energy brought together by Senator Bernie Sanders’s 2016 campaign.
Skindell says that the support of both groups is encouraging, particularly as three other northeast Ohio candidates for state representative share the dual endorsement: Kyle Earley (HD-10), Yvonka M. Hall (HD-12) and Steve Holecko (HD-14).
When Skindell first served in the Ohio House, he was part of a Progressive Caucus among Democratic legislators. In recent years, the Ohio House Progressive Caucus has gone into abeyance, but Skindell expressed hope that he will return to the House alongside other candidates endorsed by Our Revolution and the Cuyahoga County Progressive Caucus, and revive the association.
