Austin Cassidy says of Darcy Richardson, “I know from our conversations that his feet are firmly planted on the ground. This campaign exists primarily to give a voice and a choice to those on the left who are dissatisfied with what they see as the president’s failure to deliver on the change he promised during his 2008 election.” Cassidy was speaking of the Richardson for President campaign.
You probably haven’t seen anything about the Darcy Richardson for President campaign on TV, or on the radio. That’s because Darcy Richardson defies the standard narrative about the Democratic presidential contest in 2012: That Barack Obama doesn’t have any challengers from within his own party.
Darcy Richardson is a veteran progressive activist who is seeking to give liberal Democrats an alternative to voting for Barack Obama, who has adopted a series of right wing policies alarmingly similar to the agenda advanced by George W. Bush. Richardson is already on the ballot for the Democratic primary in several states.
If you’re one of the many Democrats disappointed by Barack Obama’s support for Republican ideology, show your support for a progressive alternative. Wear this Darcy Richardson for President political pin to start a conversation among the Democrats you know, and remind people that the Democratic presidential primary contest of 2012 is anything but over.
