The Six Senate Candidates Represent Justice, Fairness and Equity on Police Reform, Criminal Justice Reform, Voting Rights, Climate Change, Pro-Choice Protections and Other Critical Progressive Issues
WASHINGTON, D.C.—March On PAC, the political action committee created by March On to raise awareness of vital progressive issues and drive voters to polls to choose a more just, fair and equitable future for America, today announced its first round of 2020 endorsements aimed at taking back the Senate in November. The six endorsed candidates would flip seats in traditionally red states, help Democrats take back the Senate and represent strong voices in support of police reform, criminal justice reform, voting rights, economic justice, healthcare reform, climate change legislation, gun violence prevention, pro-choice protections and Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA).
“After marching for women’s rights in 2017 and rallying for gun reform and electing the most progressive House in history in 2018, March On PAC is energized and excited to fight for a future built on racial and economic justice and an end to government corruption,” said Vanessa Wruble, Executive Director of March On. “Americans everywhere are rejecting the politics of hate and the patterns of racism that pose an imminent threat to our democracy, and by turning the pain of economic and social division into action, we will mobilize voters and choose the future we want in November.”
The endorsements include:
- Mark Kelly, D–Arizona, a vocal champion of gun violence prevention, affordable healthcare, a woman’s right to choose and renewable energy.
- Theresa Greenfield, D–Iowa, a tireless advocate of women’s rights, accountability in policing, gun violence prevention and keeping families together.
