WFP, a grass-roots political party working to elect progressive candidates, tweeted that its national committee moved the six candidates to the next stage of the endorsement process.

“The best way to beat Donald TrumpDonald John TrumpFive landmark moments of testimony to Congress Lindsey Graham basks in the impeachment spotlight Democrats sharpen their message on impeachment MORE in 2020 is with a bold vision of a nation that works for the many, not just the few,” WFP’s 2020 endorsement webpage reads.

WFP released a candidate questionnaire to all the presidential campaigns on June 18 and decided on the six candidates based on that review.

The six candidates will now be interviewed by WFP. The group is also hosting a “People’s Debate” on July 26, where supporters of each of the candidates will participate.

The party works in partnership with the Working Families Organization, an advocacy group focused on issues facing working families.

“We are fighting for a brighter future for America. One where the economy works for everyone, not just the wealthy and well-connected. One where politicians are accountable to working people, instead of Wall Street lobbyists and corporate CEOs,” their website reads.
