(I think that there are significant class differences between the Labour 
Party in England and the Democratic Party in the USA. I should probably 
read Richard Seymour's book on Corbyn to get a better handle on this.)

Kate: Have you seen DSA members get more excited about doing electoral 
organizing? What do you think is driving that?

Christian: We've been trying to figure out our relationship to DSA's 
past strategy of Democratic Party realignment and operating through an 
inside-outside strategy to something closer to a clear electoral 
strategy. Specifically, how do our candidates build socialism and 
provide wins for the working class? Many of our candidates are young, so 
they can run again multiple times. It will take the socialist Left some 
time. We were definitely inspired by Jeremy Corbyn and the Labour Left's 
gains in the United Kingdom. We know we can't forfeit electoral work to 
our enemies. We can do this work even better.
