Progressive Alaska has written extensively about the two Democratic Party candidates in the upcoming U.S. House Democratic Party Primary. Neither Diane Benson nor Ethan Berkowitz has been covered in depth yet by the national media.
I'm surprised. It is an exciting race, pitting the old guard against somebody who wants to and has the ability to help rebuild our Democratic Party from the ground up on real 21st Century lines, untainted by VECO, Fox News, Bill O'Reilly's producer, corrupt mortgage bankers, and the top executives at the war profiteering Carlyle Group.
The Nation's chief editor, and frequent MSNBC, CNN, PBS and ABC commentator, Katrina vanden Heuvel, has just finished a long, in-depth interview and article on Diane Benson. Let's hope it attracts more attention to her, this race, and on a new direction in our political future.
