Mike Arcuri has failed to make the cut in online voting for Democracy For America's Grassroots All-Star endorsement. Arcuri was listed as among the original contestants, but did not get enough votes from Democratic grassroots supporters to carry him on to the final round of selection.
The following Democratic candidates made the final round of selection:
Jerry McNerney - California's eleventh district
Nancy Skinner - Michigan's ninth district
Stephanie Studebaker - Ohio's third district
Patrick Murphy - Pennsylvania's eighth district
Phil Avillo - Pennsylvania's nineteenth district
A lot of assistance comes along with a DFA endorsement. That assistance will now not be coming to the Democrats in New York State's 24th congressional district.
Many of Arcuri's supporters in Utica have claimed that Michael Arcuri's campaign doesn't need to bother itself with appealing to progressive voters. They've also claimed that Internet outreach doesn't matter. Would they still make such arguments now that they've lost this opportunity?
