WASHINGTON-- Our Revolution on Wednesday announced its endorsement of Marie Newman for U.S. Congress representing Illinois’ 3rd Congressional District. Newman is also endorsed by the local Our Revolution group, Will County Progressives, and Our Revolution Illinois-Chicago.
“Marie is part of the rising group of nonprofit workers stepping up to serve their communities in office,” said Shannon Jackson, Our Revolution Executive Director. “Her work founding and directing Team Up to Stop Bullying has resulted in the program expanding nationwide with over 70 partners. Once elected she will continue to fight for the working families of the third Congressional district, and make sure that special interests and corporations are paying their fair share. In addition, Newman’s firm pro-choice stance and commitment to women’s health sets her apart from the competition. We’re proud to endorse Marie Newman for Congress and look forward to her joining our strong bench of progressive champions.”
Our Revolution supports progressive champions at every level of government. By supporting candidates up and down the ballot, we are aiming to transform American politics to make our political and economic systems responsive to the needs of working families.
