RootsAction: Connect. Act. Grow.
Today, RootsAction becomes the first national organization to announce support for a terrific Democratic candidate who’s hoping to unseat one of the most powerful corporate power brokers in Congress.

Colin Byrd -- the progressive mayor of the legendary New Deal city of Greenbelt, Maryland -- is taking on Majority Leader Steny Hoyer.

For more than two years, Hoyer rigidly opposed impeaching President Trump even after Trump’s numerous flagrant violations of the Constitution. “Going forward on impeachment is not worthwhile at this point,” Hoyer told CNN in April 2019.

Colin Byrd says:

● “Steny's policies are stuck in the last century. And he has lost touch with our community.”

● “I'm the youngest black mayor in America. I know firsthand how much Steny is letting our district down, and I know how to win.”

● “I'm rooted in civil rights activism, progressive activism and progressive politics. I'm about Good Trouble. Steny is about Good Ol' Boys Politics.”

And here’s what we say: Please give Colin Byrd’s campaign a big boost by sending him a donation now!

In 2018, Alexandria Ocasio Cortez defeated the #4 Democrat in the House. Now, Colin Byrd is setting out to defeat the #2 Democrat in the House, second only to Nancy Pelosi.

The bigger they are, the harder they fall.

Before he officially filed to run for Congress, Colin told us: “Change can’t wait.” And he was emphatic that “we must be bold in what we ask for.”

Let’s be bold.

Colin was a Bernie Sanders delegate to the 2016 Democratic National Convention. He’s a fervent advocate of the social-justice programs and policies that Bernie continually works for . . . and that Hoyer fervently opposes.

At RootsAction, we believe that early support for Colin Byrd will be crucial for his uphill campaign to topple Hoyer. After four decades in Congress, this dinosaur corporate Democrat has amassed a 40-year anti-progressive record. It’s time for him to go.

Colin Byrd knows it’ll be a tough campaign in 2022. Wisely, he’s starting early. And we’ll be wise to assist Colin now, responding to his request: “I ask that you support Good Trouble.”
