WASHINGTON-- Our Revolution on Thursday announced their endorsement of Pete D’Alessandro for Iowa’s 3rd Congressional District. Pete is also endorsed by the Our Revolution local group, Our Revolution Central Iowa.
“Pete has spent the past three decades working for the progressive movement,” said Our Revolution President Nina Turner. “He is a longtime fighter and ally of those who are unable to speak for themselves and we are proud to back his campaign for Congress. This year Our Revolution will be working diligently to support candidates who will change the status quo. Our country needs bold progressive leaders at every level of government from city council to the halls of Congress.”
In 2017, Our Revolution endorsed 109 candidates and 2 ballot initiatives with over a third of them winning. Victories in 2017 included many historic victories such as Randall Woodfin’s election to Mayor of Birmingham Alabama, Lee Carter’s upset victory for Virginia Delegate, and the election of Andrea Jenkins as the first black transgender woman elected to the Minneapolis City Council.
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.
