(Timed to coincide with Ackerman's blueprint.)

The nature of our electoral activism will vary based on local political 
conditions. But it will include supporting progressive and socialist 
candidates running for office, usually in Democratic primaries or as 
Democrats in general elections but also in support of independent 
socialist and other third-party campaigns outside the Democratic Party. 
In the medium-to-long-term we will work to build the organizational 
capacity necessary to run candidates of our own (as one of DSA’s 
predecessor organizations, Democratic Socialist Organizing Committee, 
and DSA itself were able to do in the 1970s and 1980s), to forge larger 
socialist electoral coalitions both within and outside of the Democratic 
Party and ultimately to create a majoritarian electoral coalition in 
support of socialist political and economic reforms.
