“I am thrilled to receive the endorsement of Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez. Her unwavering dedication to fighting for social, climate and economic justice is a true inspiration. I look forward to working with Congresswoman Ocasio-Cortez and other Progressive Caucus members in Congress to fight for policies that make life safer and more affordable for people in my District.”

We need Marie Newman in Congress — as an ally, and as a leader.”
