About Endorsements

The Endorsement Committee is responsible for reviewing the qualifications of candidates. The purpose is to first establish with sufficient certainty that the individual will represent the platform and ideals of the 27th LD Democrats.

Based on that and a thorough vetting process the committee will make recommendations to the membership on which candidates to support.
