Christian Democrats of America officially endorses the candidates below for the 2018 midterm elections. After vetting the values, policies and ideals of the below candidates, we believe they are in alignment with our platform and the policies/values that are most important to Christian Democrats. This list is in no way complete, as we will continue adding to this list on a regular basis as the midterms approach. Look for special features on these candidates on our social media, podcast and blog and for an official Voter’s Guide on issues coming soon.

Richard Painter – Senate, Minnesota

Quote: “This President is a traitor. Either we impeach and remove him or we start learning Russian.”

Tabitha Isner – Congress, Alabama

Quote: My political views are firmly tied to my faith, the idea that we are called to feed the hungry and care for the sick and liberate the captive. I believe that we do better by our children and families when we support abundant life for all rather than fearing that there isn’t enough to go around. In these United States of America, we can all enjoy abundant life, but it’s going to require courage and faithfulness to our ideals. We can restore unity and strengthen the bonds of peace, but It’s going to require humility and gentleness, patience and bearing with one another in love.

Kelly Fryer – Governor, Arizona

Quote: “I will use a human rights lens to write every policy, sign every bill and draft every budget – people first. I think Arizona is the most beautiful state in the nation but we face a long list of challenges, including deep economic inequity and high poverty, struggling public schools, mass incarceration, a water shortage, racist immigration policies, anti-LGBTQ bias, constant attacks on women’s rights and an assault on our natural resources. These problems have reached or will soon reach crisis levels as a result of decades of negligence, incompetence, ideological blindness and immoral leadership. As governor, I will use 3 principles to tackle every challenge: 1) People first – I’ll use a human rights lens to write every policy, sign every law and draft every budget. 2) Everyone wins – It isn’t true that, for someone to “win,” someone else has to “lose.” I will seek solutions that work for all of us. 3. Be fearless – I’m going to listen to the smartest people, look for the best ideas, think big and act boldly to make Arizona work for everyone – and I mean everyone.”

Joan Greene - Congress, Arizona

Quote: “We must be the Voice for the Voiceless. We fight for the people and not an industry. We must include compassion in every decision we make because when we do, we would never have the atrocities we are having now. We must always extend our hand to those in need. Together we can turn our Community and Country back to the WE it should be instead of the me it is becoming.”

Tim Kaine – Senate, Virginia

Quote: “Let’s hear from the “least of these,” who must deal with the ramifications of the decisions made in Washington. In the end, our collaboration and openness to new ideas will produce solutions that do a better job at caring for those most in need.”

Song by Christina Forrester – Executive Director/Founder, CDA

1. Well, they got the first one dead wrong.

Painter is a Republican. He hates Trump, but he's still a Republican. Screw that.

He's not really campaigning in MN, either. It's unlikely that he'll be on the GE ballot.
