Warren Picks Up Eight New Endorsements, Five from Massachusetts
CHARLESTOWN — U.S. Senator from Massachusetts and 2020 presidential candidate Elizabeth Warren has picked up a new slate of endorsements, including a handful of federal delegates from Massachusetts.
Warren’s campaign staff announced a total of eight new endorsements Tuesday, five of which that are U.S. Representatives from the Bay State, including Representative Katherine Clark, Representative Joe Kennedy III, Senator Edward Markey, Representative Jim McGovern, and Representative Lori Trahan.
“We are grateful to have the support of incredible leaders who are on the frontlines of the fight to make our country work for every person, not just the wealthy and well-connected,” said Warren’s Senior Advisor and Political Director Rebecca Pearcey.
“This campaign is about calling out what’s broken, laying out serious plans to fix it, and building a grassroots movement to get it done. With these partners, we will win in 2020 and make the big, structural change Americans are counting on.”
Filling out Warren’s support from across the rest of the country is Representative Raúl Grijalva of Arizona, Representative Deb Haaland of New Mexico, and Representative Andy Levin of Michigan.
Warren continues to tour the country in promoting her 2020 presidential campaign for president, hosting her trademark town hall events from state to state. This past weekend, Warren traveled to New Hampshire to host a house party in Bow and hold a town hall in Derry.
“Elizabeth Warren is the most passionate, brilliant, and effective legislator that I have ever had the honor to work with. We’ve been blessed to have her serve the people of Massachusetts these last six and a half years,” said Edward J. Markey (D-Massachusetts).
“She’s worked tirelessly to ensure that Wall Street reforms stay on the books. She’s advocated for the rights of our retirees, so they can lead lives of dignity and not despair. And she’s been a champion for working people, fighting to make sure that no one who works 40 hours a week still lives in poverty. No one knows how to fight for what is right better than Elizabeth Warren. I’m proud to call her my partner, my friend, and soon - the next President of the United States.”
One of Bristol County’s federal delegates, Representative Joe Kennedy III (D-MA 4th District), says he supports Warren “because America needs a leader who will restore the solidarity that Donald Trump stole.”
"We need a leader who will bring this country together to take on its greatest common threat: a system that protects the powerful and privileged while the rest struggle to scrape by. Elizabeth has built her entire career on the belief that ours is a nation of second chances, redemption, and of horizons that don’t disappear when fate gives you a tough hand. In Elizabeth Warren’s America, we pull people up, we fight by their side and we refuse to leave anyone behind. I’m proud to call her my colleague, my mentor, my friend and, soon, the President of the United States,” said Kennedy.
As far as the area’s other delegate, Congressman Bill Keating (D-MA 10th District), no public voice of support has come from the longtime Representative’s office. It’s unclear who Keating may endorse, if anyone at all, in the 2020 presidential race.
