PBS NEWSHOUR FOOD FOR THOUGHT 1 29 15

February 5th, 2015

Members complain that the Democratic Party has no message and no clear plan to retake the majority, despite good news on the economy that should have brought rewards at the polls. No path back to the majority in sight for Democrats: It’s easy for Democrats to paper over some of their midterm electoral issues, given that they control the White House, they feel they have a presidential demographic and electoral advantage, and that Hillary Clinton leads in the 2016 polls.

March 27th, 2013

Huntsville-area Democrats marched across the Edmund Pettus bridge in Selma, AL on March 3, 2013 with thousands of other individuals who came from different towns, counties, and states to commemorate Bloody Sunday - March 7, 1965.
