Midwest CCDS meeting
Midwest members and friends of Committees of Correspondence for Democracy and Socialism at a November 11 regional meeting in West Lafayette, Indiana voiced cautious optimism about the results of recent Congressional elections.
Kris Hoggatt reported on efforts to elect a progressive Democrat to the Fourth Congressional District in Indiana. The incumbent Congressman, roundly condemned by veterans for chairing the House Committee on Veterans Affairs and dismissing legislation accommodating their needs, was virtually invisible in the district. The progressive challenger, who many local activists supported, struggled to get minimal press coverage. .”
