Common Sense Party of California and Forward Party Join Forces

In a move to empower independent-minded California voters, the Common Sense Party and California Forward Party are combining efforts to change politics in the Golden State for the better. Using the 'Common Sense Party' name, this new political coalition is the future for independent-minded and solutions-oriented politics in California. This joint effort represents a commitment to unleashing the political power of state and local leaders to better represent our diverse communities through common sense problem solving in government.

Under California law, new parties must register approximately 73k voters to be officially recognized as a political party in the state. Forward Party members in California will now register for the Common Sense Party, joining the already nearly 30k registered Common Sense Party voters. Currently registered Common Sense Party voters do not need to do anything except spread the word to fellow Californians to register as a Common Sense Party voter! Volunteers across the state will be able to work together at the grassroots level, leading through our shared values of cooperation and problem solving.

Joint Statement by Andrew Yang, Co-Chair of the Forward Party, and Tom Campbell, former Congressman and Chair of the Common Sense Party:

"We are thrilled to join together to craft a new kind of politics for California and the country more broadly. This is the kind of collaborative political work that people are hungry for. Voters deserve a political choice that rejects extremism and puts problem solving and consensus building above petty partisan politics. That's precisely what this new party stands for. California voters are tired of the dysfunction coming out of Sacramento, and soon they'll have the chance to move Forward through Common Sense."
