Senator Ed Markey Endorses Congresswoman Ayanna Pressley for Re-Election to House of Representatives


Boston, August 10 - Today, Congresswoman Ayanna Pressley announced that she has received the endorsement of U.S. Senator Ed Markey in her campaign for re-election to the U.S. House of Representatives. 


“I am grateful for Senator Markey’s support, and even more so for his friendship and partnership in Congress,” said Congresswoman Pressley. “The Senator has always carried with him an unyielding commitment to the people of Massachusetts, and I’m proud to have worked with him on issues of consequence to the residents of the Massachusetts 7th and communities across the Commonwealth. Senator Markey has stood out as a clarion voice in the Senate on environmental justice, transit justice, housing access and more, and I look forward to continuing to work alongside him.”


"Ayanna is a champion for people in the Massachusetts 7th, across our Commonwealth, and around the country,” said Senator Markey. “From advocating for fare-free public transit and environmental justice to essential criminal legal reforms and access to housing, I'm so glad to work side-by-side with Ayanna, in Washington and in the communities, we call home. Ayanna doesn't back down from the hard work necessary to make real, lasting progress, and together we will send her back to Congress with a renewed mandate to keep making bold, inclusive change."


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. 


So far in her campaign, Congresswoman Pressley has also earned the endorsement of U.S. Senator Elizabeth Warren, along with the SEIU Massachusetts State Council, Massachusetts AFL-CIO, Working Families Party, Democracy for America, Sunrise, Higher Heights, the League of Conservation Voters, Sierra Club, National Women’s Political Caucus, National Organization for Women (NOW), Progressive Turnout Project, Giffords PAC, Common Defense, and others.
