Senator Bernie Sanders Endorses Congresswoman Ayanna Pressley for Re-Election to House of Representatives

Boston, August 16 – Today, Congresswoman Ayanna Pressley announced she has received the endorsement of U.S. Senator Bernie Sanders in her campaign for re-election to the U.S. House of Representatives.

“Senator Sanders is a fighter for the people and I gladly receive his endorsement,” said Representative Pressley. “The Senator has been a champion for workers and their families. He has advocated for meaningful change on issues that matter to people around the country. I’m proud of the work we’ve done together and I look forward to our continued partnership in Congress.” 

"Ayanna Pressley's time in Congress has been defined by her commitment to the working people and families of the district she represents," said Senator Sanders. "She has advocated and legislated for policies that put people first in the fights against climate change, economic injustice, healthcare inequity, student loan debt, and more. Her bold, progressive leadership in the House remains invaluable, and I look forward to continuing to work together in the months and years ahead on behalf of workers and families in Massachusetts, Vermont, and across the country."  

Congresswoman Pressley made history in 2018 when she became the first woman of color elected to represent Massachusetts in the U.S. Congress, representing constituents in Boston, Somerville, Cambridge, Chelsea, Everett, Randolph, and Milton. 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.
