Endorsed and Approved Candidates

Endorsements are only for one candidate in a race, and can only occur after the close of filing week. An approval means that there is more than one candidate that the LD supports in that race. Below are the endorsed and approved candidates as voted on by the general LD membership. Candidates are listed in alphabetical order of position then last name to avoid perceived favoritism. 

Feel free to share this information with your family, friends and neighbors.
