No Dem Left Behind Endorses John Fetterman for U.S. Senate
WASHINGTON D.C. — No Dem Left Behind is proud to announce its endorsement of John Fetterman for U.S. Senate. John is the Lieutenant Governor of Pennsylvania and the former mayor of Braddock, PA.
In his 13 years as mayor, John rebuilt the town of Braddock through youth services, creative urban policy solutions and creating jobs. He continued his support for public programs when he was elected Lieutenant Governor, and with a bigger role, John fought for platforms that many in his party had yet to support politically. John was a proponent of legalizing marijuana before it was popular, officiated a same-sex marriage before it was legal and supported single-payer healthcare before it became the mainstream. He led the fight for criminal justice reform to free the wrongfully convicted and give deserving longtime inmates a second chance. His genuine and unwavering championing of the same issues for the last twenty years shows that he stands true to what he believes is best for his constituents.
“He is a blunt and unapologetic leader. He does not cater to any one crowd and his loyalty is to the people that he serves. We don’t see people like John often in D.C. but he is who we need. We at No Dem Left Behind are going to do everything we can to elect John Fetterman to the United States Senate.” No Dem Left Behind National Spokesperson and former West Virginia State Senator, Richard Ojeda.
John is the candidate with the best chance to win in an open seat race for the U.S. Senate in Pennsylvania. He is a progressive who tells it like it is, but many of his policies still appeal to Republican voters. A public servant who won’t back down, John regularly corrects GOP falsehoods and is known across the country as a champion for his constituents. Still, John recognizes the importance of uniting Pennsylvanians. In his own words, “It’s not rural versus urban, it’s rural and urban…I’m going to fight not for one part of Pennsylvania, not for one party of Pennsylvania, but for one Pennsylvania.”
“John is not your typical Senate candidate. He is not part of the ‘DC establishment.’ He’s a dedicated public servant who has demonstrated that he
will go above and beyond for the good people of Pennsylvania and always put
their needs above partisan politics. John is the kind of guy who you can have an open conversation with. He has no hidden agenda. That’s the type of candidate we at No Dem Left Behind are proud to stand with. It is our privilege to endorse John Fetterman for the United States Senate.” Hassan Martini, Executive Director, No Dem Left Behind.
