Hillary Rodham Clinton endorses 19 RFS candidates

As early voting locations open across the country, Onward Together announces Secretary Clinton’s endorsement of 19 state and local candidates in the Run for Something program.

These candidates were selected for their inspiring commitments to improving their communities and bringing diversity and compassion to local office. Collectively, they have knocked on hundreds of thousands of doors and connected with voters who share our progressive values.

“Our candidates represent the change our country needs right now — thoughtful, compassionate, community-based leadership,” said Amanda Litman, co founder of Run for Something. “Their stories serve as inspiration for all of us to get out and make a difference.

“Our democracy is in crisis, but I’m optimistic that through building a bench of progressive leaders who put their communities and values first, we will put ourselves back on the path to a fairer, more inclusive America. That’s why this election could not be more critical to our collective future,” said Secretary Clinton.
