PDA's National Communications Coordinator Mike Hersh traveled to Detroit, MI November , 2012, to mobilize volunteers to help elect Dr. Syed Taj--a medical doctor running to defeat "9/11 Truther" Kerry Bentivolio--in Michigan's 11th congressional district.
Jim Hightower said, "PDA and I have been boot-stomping for weeks, starting with PDA's 'Progressive Central' in Charlotte during the DNC, and even riding down to Orlando, last week, where we stood with our best Florida agitator, Alan Grayson who is now a good bet to win a congressional seat there. And PDA has been in Michigan and Illinois to make house calls on behalf of Dr. Syed Taj and Dr. David Gill, two more great progressive champions who can win."
