Boston, August 4 - Congresswoman Ayanna Pressley today received the endorsement of U.S. Senator Elizabeth Warren in her reelection campaign to continue representing Massachusetts’ 7th Congressional District in the U.S. House of Representatives. 


“Senator Warren has been a friend, mentor, and partner-in-good since even before I was in Congress,” said Representative Pressley. “As Massachusetts’ Senior Senator, she has been a national leader on issues of consequence to people in the Massachusetts 7th, and in communities across the Commonwealth and the country – from abortion access and gun control to economic justice and holding Wall Street accountable. I’m proud to have earned the Senator’s endorsement and, in this moment, when our communities continue to face pressing challenges – from ongoing threats to public health to economic inequality to racial injustice – I look forward to continuing to work together to advance systemic, progressive change at the Federal level.”


“Since she arrived in Congress in 2019, Ayanna has brought her trademark compassion and conviction to every fight — advocating and legislating for every resident of the Massachusetts 7th, delivering critical resources to benefit our communities, and standing up against attacks on our most basic rights and freedoms. I’m grateful to call Ayanna a friend and partner, and I’ve been so proud to work alongside her to protect the rights of workers, ensure a more just and equitable public health response to COVID-19, push to cancel student debt, and more. We need Ayanna’s bold, principled leadership in Congress, and I’m very happy to endorse her campaign for re-election,” said Senator Warren. 


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.
