We endorse the best.

Candidates who are endorsed by Way to Lead can receive direct funding from our federal Hybrid PAC and state PACs, and support from our community.

Through our affiliated state PACs, we endorse and give directly to candidates up and down the ballot in Way to Win’s targeted state strategy who are the new wave of leadership in governance, and who Way to Win-funded organizations are supporting. Way to Lead also supports Democrats across the country in federal elections, in primaries when they are challenging Democrats who are blocking our progressive governance vision, and in general elections when they can add to our collective power.

Below you will find a list of candidates who have been elected to office. For a full list of previously endorsed candidates please see the filters menu bar where you can alternate between previously endorsed candidates.
