CPC PAC: “Jamaal Bowman is a progressive champion who knows that bold solutions are required to meet the challenges that working families across this country face.”
Wednesday, the Progressive Caucus PAC (CPC PAC), a committee affiliated with the Congressional Progressive Caucus, announced their endorsement of the Democratic nominee and likely next Representative from New York’s 16th District, Jamaal Bowman.
CPC PAC’s endorsement follows the groundbreaking endorsement Jamaal received from former President Barack Obama earlier this week.
“Jamaal Bowman is a progressive champion who knows that bold solutions are required to meet the challenges that working families across this country face,” said CPC PAC Co-Chairs Pramila Jayapal, Mark Pocan, and Jamie Raskin. “His vision for change and his work as an educator and a leader for New York teachers, students, and families bring a critical and necessary voice to the progressive movement. The Congressional Progressive Caucus PAC is proud to endorse his campaign and we look forward to working alongside him in Congress.”
“I could not be more proud to receive the endorsement of the Congressional Progressive Caucus PAC,” said Jamaal Bowman. “Whether it’s fighting back against President Trump, or pushing President Biden towards bold solutions that match the scale of this crisis — no matter what happens in November, we’re going to need a strong Progressive Caucus. Today, I am proud to stand alongside the CPC PAC, and I look forward to joining their members to fight for Medicare for All, a Green New Deal, affordable housing, and to raise the minimum wage.”
CPC PAC has a mission of electing strong, progressive leaders to Congress who share the PAC’s vision including fighting for budgets that invest in America, protecting and expanding social security, supporting the rise of the minimum wage, fighting for campaign finance reform, and demanding health care as a human right.
