CSfC Members Vote to Support Special Election Candidates Quist in Montana, Parnell in South Carolina

CSfC Members voted to support these two special election candidates, in addition to Jonathan Ossoff of Georgia.

Trump’s appointment of Republican Ryan Zinke to become interior secretary has left open Montana’s sole House Seat, resulting in a special election scheduled for May 25. The appointment of Mick Mulvaney as OMB Director has likewise led to a special election in South Carolina for his House seat, scheduled for June 20.

Recent news reports suggest that Democrats Rob Quist and Archie Parnell have a real opportunity of winning these seats. Activists around the country as well as here close to home are now banding together to work for their campaigns.

We'll be running a GOTV phone bank for Quist on Wednesday, May 24, ahead of the May 25 special election:
