The Wellstone Democratic Renewal Club voted No Endorsement in the June primary election for the 15th AD at our meeting last Thursday, January 25. The Club uses RCV (Ranked Choice Voting) in which there are multiple rounds where the second and third choices listed on the ballot are redistributed. The leading candidate requires 60% of the redistributed votes to receive an endorsement. The final result of the vote is: Jovanka Beckles 38 Dan Kalb 38 No Endorsement 34
The Wellstone Club is much more than a Democratic Club that does endorsements. We are an activist club that engages many issues and does so largely through our Committees and we invite you to contact any the chair of any committee for which you’d like to be involved. Our club is only as good as the energy our members put into it so we encourage all of you to be involved in our committees as much as your schedule allows.
