(Chicago, IL) At a joint press conference scheduled for 11:30am Tuesday, November 12th, Abe Matthew, a Bridgeport Attorney and candidate for Congress in Illinois Third District, will announce that he will be ending his bid for office and endorsing Marie Newman for the Democratic nomination in March.

Abe Matthew lives in Chicago’s Bridgeport neighborhood with his wife Shannon. When the couple recently welcomed two sons into this world, it became clear to Abe that the only way they would grow up to the future he dreamed of is if we start fighting for it now. Abe will continue fighting for a better future for his family and his community by working to elect Marie Newman, a real Democrat with a real plan, to Congress in March.

“I entered this race because there is a hunger in our nation for leadership on the issues of pressing concern for our people. The mothers and fathers of our district struggle to put food on the table. We mourn the loss of our daughters and sons to gun violence. Our sisters and brothers fall ill, yet we watch them suffer because they cannot afford the cures” said Abe Matthew. “I am endorsing Marie Newman because I trust her to fight for the mothers and fathers who are struggling to get by. I trust her to work to stem the tide of gun violence afflicting our sons and daughters. I trust her to fight for universal health care so our sisters and brothers can get the care they need. Marie will be our advocate in Congress.”

“We have a golden opportunity to make a change in our community this March. An opportunity to elect someone to Congress who will truly be an advocate for workers and working families. I am so honored to have the endorsement of Abe Matthew, and I know that with his help, we can make that change a reality,” said Marie Newman.
