The Progressive Change Campaign Committee (PCCC) will announce later today that they will be endorsing former California state Rep. Lori Saldaña in for Congress in California's 52's district, who is running in a Democratic primary against San Diego city councilman Scott Peters for a newly redistricted seat currently held by Rep. Brian Bilbray (R-CA). The PCCC has been involved in putting up more liberal challengers to Blue Dog Democrats, and organizers say they'll be involved in a number of races as the primary season continues.
"When we first talked with Lori last October, we were impressed," the organization wrote in an email that will go out to members later today. "A three-term state legislator and university educator, Lori is a passionate fighter for middle-class families. 'I want Democrats to have backbone,' she says."
