“The path to a bloc of independents in the Senate [started] Tuesday in Maryland.”
That’s how POLITICO’s Isaac Dovere’s reported on businessman Neal Simon’s official announcement to run for U.S. Senate as an independent candidate yesterday.
As Neal told the Baltimore Sun, “I do not believe that having another party-line Republican or party-line Democrat go to Capitol Hill is going to change anything.”
The path to our “Fulcrum Strategy” in the U.S. Senate is long and winding, but we are one big step closer today because of independent leaders like Neal stepping forward to run for office.
On Our Radar:
- Our movement is gaining steam! The New York Times reports on our effort: “there’s new energy in the movement to reclaim the political center.“

Stay tuned over the coming weeks as we continue to announce new endorsements for independent candidates nationwide.
