Progressive PAC lets supporters pick Dem endorsement


The progressive political action committee that encouraged Elizabeth Warren to run has opted to let its supporters pick which candidate will now receive their endorsement.

In order for a candidate to win Democracy for America's endorsement, Hillary Clinton, Bernie Sanders or Martin O'Malley must secure a supermajority of at least 66.67 percent of the votes cast.

With its over 1 million members, DFA — the Howard Dean-founded, Vermont-based liberal PAC — says it helped 843 candidates with progressive values nationwide through their grassroots efforts, but this will be their first Democratic presidential primary endorsement.
