ENDORSED CANDIDATE

Marie Newman

State: Illinois

Elected Office: U.S. Representative

Candidate District: IL-03

Reason for Endorsement:

Marie Newman is once again running for Congress because she believes her district deserves a true champion. Newman shares the third district's progressive values: that healthcare is a right, that working families deserve a fair deal, that we should have an economy that works for everyone, and that immigrant rights need to be protected and expanded. She has a long track record of advocacy at the national, state, and local level. She has helped build community organizations and advocated for bold solutions to a wide range of issues affecting her district. We know she will continue that fight long after she is elected to Congress.

Marie embodies the mission of the Indivisible movement: to cultivate and elect leaders to realize bold, progressive ideals. Before Marie was ever a candidate, she was working tirelessly for change. She has shown that she is not afraid to stand up to the establishment and as a member of Congress, she will stand up for policies that guarantee all people the rights they deserve. 

Indivisible is excited to join the vast list of progressive endorsements that Marie has already earned and we will fight to ensure the third district gets the champion it deserves.
