From the chairman’s blog:

We had a tremendous turnout at our meeting yesterday and we accomplished a great deal.

First, we approved Kyle Taylor Lucas as our State Senate candidate. That means she will have access to all our services, except funding, for her campaign.

If you look at our Bylaws, we have to approve a candidate at one meeting before we can endorse anyone when there are two Democrats running. We could approve Tim Sheldon at the August 6 picnic, but we can also endorse Kyle at the picnic, which will release funds to her campaign.

Many political organizations do not have an endorsement that allows funding until after the primary.
