There's A New Political Party In Massachusetts!

We are pleased to announce that in the November 6th statewide election, the Green-Rainbow Party (GRP) statewide candidates earned enough votes to be formally recognized as an official party in the state of Massachusetts. The GRP expects to receive its elevated status later this month once the results are fully certified by the Secretary of the Commonwealth. Altogether, more than one hundred thousand voters chose Green-Rainbow in this election. "I think people are tired of fear-mongering and the failings created by today's divisive two-party system," said Juan Sanchez, the GRP candidate for Secretary of State and the first Puerto Rican to qualify for inclusion on the state ballot. "In Massachusetts, voters are extremely independent-minded. They really responded to our inclusive, grassroots campaign and my progressive stance on voter and election reform." Continue reading

Not only do these mailers imply our campaign has the support of Bernie Sanders, who has already stumped and endorsed one of our opponents, but they also imply that the Super-PAC itself supports our campaign.
