While mainstream media is largely focused on the Democratic presidential primary, grassroots groups and organizers are eyeing opportunities to add progressive candidates to Congress. With the success of “The Squad” (Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y), Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-Minn.), Rep. Rashida Tlaib (D-Mich.), and Rep. Ayanna Pressley (D-Mass.)), both at the ballot box and in the media, there are a number of hopefuls lining up to build a left-leaning coalition that can land them in Congress.

 

Groups like Justice Democrats, Our Revolution, and the Democratic Socialists of America are already starting to look at endorsements for insurgents challengers hoping to continue the leftward shift in Washington. Though there is still plenty of time for candidates to distinguish themselves, a number of prominent progressives are already grabbing the spotlight locally and nationally.

 

Here are some of the most interesting primary challengers jumping into the 2020 race.
