Our campaign has been underway since late April. I have talked to the people of San Francisco every day about what they feel are the most important issues to them. I estimate I have spoken to more than 1,000 people since April (I’ve certainly handed out that many cards!).  Always at or near the top of their list of issues is single-payer health care.

Although there are many issues on which Rep. Pelosi and I sharply differ, there is no better example of our differences than the single payer issue. I am for pure, Medicare-For-All single-payer health care. Rep. Pelosi not only does not support single payer, she actively blocks its passage for reasons I have written about previously. Please help me fight.

As our campaign has continued to grow in size, momentum, and visibility, it has taken on a life of its own.  The contest between me and Nancy Pelosi is evolving into a referendum of national dimension about which side of the badly divided Democratic Party will lead it into the future: the fast-growing progressive wing (my candidacy) or the side of the corporate establishment elitists personified by Nancy Pelosi, the DNC, and her DCCC.

I do not aspire to be the Minority Leader of the House. I am running solely because I wish to represent the people of the 12th Congressional District, to carry their values, hopes and dreams to Washington and give them a strong voice to the best of my ability. If you are a voter in the 12th District, I urge you to consider my platform. I can earn your trust and your vote.
