This LA Progressive voter guide for national and California state elections contains recommendations for the November 8, 2016 election. As many of you know, the LA Progressive endorsed Bernie Sanders in the Democratic Primary. But now, in the General Election, we believe Donald Trump as president would be a threat to the republic, and yet we have reservations about Hillary Clinton as well. Click here to read our full discussion on the Trump v. Clinton race.

The second highest office on this November ballot is for the United States Senate. In California the seat being vacated by Senator Barbara Boxer is being sought by State Attorney General Kamala Harris and Congressional Representative Loretta Sanchez. We are endorsing A.G. Kamala Harris. The candidates participated in a debate that we've posted at the bottom of this page just below the endorsements.
