If it were just any candidate, yes, but this is also the guy who challenged a regressive governor in a state with a mostly regressive legislature and spearheaded a major union victory for teachers. And in doing so, he also inspired teachers' unions in other very red states like Oklahoma. Missouri also rejected a right-to-work law, which isn't necessarily Ojeda's doing, but he helped pump some serious life into unions, which have been dying for decades. He killed the meme of the lazy, useless union member and turned the conversation into one about organized labor can defend the working class and how the progressives can win with organized labor.
