    Progressive Uygur seeks Hill seat, blurs picture for Democrats

    By JEREMY B. WHITE

    OAKLAND — Progressive journalist Cenk Uygur is seeking the California House seat vacated by former Rep. Katie Hill, raising the prospects of an intra-Democrat clash as the party seeks to preserve its 2018 California gains.

    As founder and host of the Young Turks news program, Uygur has built a reputation and following as a prominent liberal media figure — and he burnished his bona fides immediately by rolling out an endorsement from Rep. Ro Khanna (D-Calif.), a rising progressive star who said “Congress needs bold progressives” like Uygur.

    Uygur struck an anti-establishment tone in declaring his campaign, saying in a statement that he is running as an alternative to elected officials who have been corrupted by “bribes from corporate interests and lobbyists.”

    “We have ridiculously low wages and a horrible health care system because politicians took money from those industries to sell you out. It’s time people had a Representative who actually represented them rather than the greedy, corrupt donor class,” Uygur said.
