Lauren Ashcraft Is the ONLY Truly Progressive Candidate In Her Race

Nomiki Konst

June 21st 2020

Lauren Ashcraft (https://twitter.com/VoteAshcraft) is running in New York District 12 (NY-12), Nomiki’s home district. The primary is June 23. Lauren joins the show to discuss her district, why she decided to run for congress, income inequality, and campaigning during Covid-19. Lauren is running against incumbent Rep. Carolyn Maloney. Maloney is serving her 14th term in Congress, but the last primary was eye-opening: she won with only 59.6% of the vote. She’s been winning the district with around 80% of the vote for decades. Lauren and Nomiki also discuss the problematic nature of a third candidate in the race, Suraj Patel. Patel challenged Maloney in the last congressional race, and claims to be a progressive candidate—but Ashcraft points out the tepid nature of his platform, as he seems to have become beholden to outside financial influences.
