Today, U.S Senator Bernie Sanders announced his endorsement of Jess King for Pennsylvania’s 11th Congressional District. Here is his statement:
“I am proud to endorse Jess King for Congress in Pennsylvania’s 11th Congressional District. Too often, working people in South Central Pennsylvania have been left behind by the political establishment. Jess King’s vision of an America that works for all of us, not just the wealthy and well-connected, is what we need to take back the House of Representatives and the Senate this November.
As a leader in local economic development, Jess has supported thousands of entrepreneurs and small business owners to grow and provide decent jobs that pay a living wage. She also has seen firsthand how the biggest corporations have hurt workers and squashed competition. In Congress, she will work to pass Medicare-for-all, rein in Wall Street, break up corporate monopolies, and support the real job creators – small businesses in our local economies.
The grassroots energy Jess has inspired in Lancaster and York counties is a testament to her leadership and her progressive vision. I look forward to working alongside Jess as we rewrite the rules of this rigged economy and build an America for all of us.”
