Congresswoman Pressley endorses Reps. Andy Levin, Cindy Axne, and Stacey Plaskett


Boston, July 19 - Congresswoman Ayanna Pressley today announced her fifth slate of Federal endorsements ahead of the 2022 midterm elections. The Congresswoman endorsed Rep. Andy Levin (MI-11), Rep. Cindy Axne (IA-03), and Rep. Stacey Plaskett (U.S. Virgin Islands).


“I’m so grateful to call Andy, Cindy, and Stacey both friends and colleagues in Congress,” said Congresswoman Pressley. “Whether it’s advocating on behalf of our Haitian communities, fighting for the rights of workers, protecting access to abortion and reproductive freedom, or ensuring an equitable response to the COVID-19 pandemic, I’m glad to work alongside Andy, Cindy, and Stacey, and to witness firsthand their conviction and dedication to the people they represent and to all of our communities. I’m proud to endorse each of them for re-election.” 


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.
