Why recommend instead of endorse?

If a candidate was personally unknown to us and our local sources, if we couldn't find either a provable history of supporting progressive causes or we otherwise had some reasonable doubts, or if a candidate received only 1 or 2 strikes but not 3, we often opted to give just a recommendation. If you believe your recommendation is in error, the best course of action is to ensure we are aware of your history of fighting for progressive causes and for us to get to know you. We also recommended some candidates who may be somewhat moderate in some policy positions but still believed in critical party reforms, as per our criteria and depending on the nature of the position they were running for.
