 Congresswoman Ayanna Pressley Announces Fourth Slate of Congressional Endorsements for the 2022 Midterm Elections


Boston, June 15 - Congresswoman Ayanna Pressley today announced her fourth slate of Federal endorsements ahead of the 2022 midterm elections: incumbent Reps. Gwen Moore (WI-04) and Joe Neguse (CO-02), along with Delia Ramirez, running for Congress from Illinois’ 3rd District. 


“Our communities deserve and demand leaders who are principled, compassionate, and dedicated to working in deep partnership,” said Congresswoman Pressley. “From the moment they arrived in Congress, Gwen and Joe rolled up their sleeves and got down to the work of advocating and legislating for the people they represent - making real progress on issues from climate change and racial justice to the rights of workers and access to high-quality healthcare. Delia will bring her lived experience as an activist, an organizer, and a nonprofit leader to Washington to continue the critical fight for equity and justice for all of our communities. I’m proud to endorse Gwen, Joe, and Delia, and look forward to working with them in Congress in the years ahead.”    


Congresswoman Pressley made history in 2018 when she became the first woman of color elected to represent Massachusetts in the U.S. Congress. During her time in office, Congresswoman Pressley has introduced landmark legislation to combat the crisis of childhood trauma, codify the right to abortion and comprehensive reproductive care, abolish the federal death penalty, fix our broken clemency system, cancel student debt, and more. She serves on the House Committee on Financial Services and the Committee on Government Oversight and Reform, and she has led on issues ranging from expanding transit justice and ensuring an equitable public health response to COVID-19 to ending discriminatory credit practices and keeping families safely housed. 


So far this cycle, Congresswoman Pressley has also endorsed Rep. Jimmy Gomez (CA-34), Rep. Katherine Clark (MA-05), Rep. Jim McGovern (MA-02), Rep. Jamaal Bowman (NY-16), Rep. Mark DeSaulnier (CA-10) Rep. Rashida Tlaib (MI-12), Rep. Cori Bush (MO-01), Rep. Barbara Lee (CA-12), Rep. Lucy McBath (GA-07), Rep. Grace Meng (NY-06), Rep. Lori Trahan (MA-03), Jessica Cisneros (TX-28), Charles Booker (KY), Greg Casar (TX-35), and Summer Lee (PA-18).
