Is MoveOn a front for the Democratic Party?
We believe working together to elect candidates who share our values and defeat those who don't is a key ways for progressives to build the power we need to win economic and other progressive reform. But MoveOn is and always has been an independent organization. By law, MoveOn Political Action's ability to coordinate with or donate directly to any candidate is severely restricted. We do independently fundraise and work for progressive candidates who garner the endorsement of MoveOn members in an open vote.
Because the candidates we support are progressive, they tend to be Democrats or members of independent progressive parties like the Working Families Party, but if MoveOn members decided to endorse a progressive independent or Republican, that's who MoveOn would support.
