GOP SENATE CANDIDATE JD VANCE AT IT AGAIN
Trump-backed U.S. Senate candidate JD Vance recently suggested that victims of domestic violence should stay in bad marriages. His comments, from an appearance last fall in California, were first reported by VICE and come weeks after another incident where Vance compared abortion to slavery.
Vance is in a tight race against Democratic Congressman Tim Ryan this fall.

REMEMBERING DEBI SAMAD THOMAS
The Chagrin Gateway Democrats mourn the passing of Debi Samad Thomas, a lifetime activist and champion of progressive causes. Debi worked tirelessly for good through issues-based groups such as Patriots for Change and by supporting local candidates through the Chagrin Falls Democrats, the Chagrin Gateway Democrats, as a member of the Cuyahoga County Democratic Party Executive Committee and as an elected member of the county party Central Committee. Her advice and counsel, committment to justice, patriotism and friendship will be truly missed. Please join us in sending sympathy and thoughts to Debi’s husband, Stephen, her daughters Stephanie and Emilee, and their entire family.
