MONROE, Maine — Today, Jonathan Fulford, Democratic candidate for Maine’s 2nd Congressional District, was endorsed by Our Revolution, joining a select group of candidates who have earned the national organization’s coveted endorsement. Our Revolution was founded by Sen. Bernie Sanders to back viable, progressive candidates with core Democratic values. Fulford had previously been endorsed by Local Berniecrats, Our Revolution’s local Maine chapter. Today’s national endorsement is the latest evidence that Jonathan Fulford is one of the nation’s leading progressive candidates of the 2018 election cycle.
“Jonathan Fulford is right on the issues from health care to climate change and workers’ rights. In Congress he will fight to make sure that the corporations pay their fair share of taxes and get big money out of politics. He will be a Congressman for the people and we are proud to add our endorsement,” said Nina Turner, President of Our Revolution.
Fulford accepted the group’s endorsement and has vowed to work for the values they share. “I am grateful to be endorsed by Our Revolution. The people deserve a representative who will fight for their interests, not the special interests. I will not accept corporate PAC or lobbyist money and will fight for single payer Medicare for all, creating jobs by addressing climate change, and getting Big Money out of politics. I will represent the people of CD2 and work with them to build a better future.”
Our Revolution has quickly become one of the largest progressive political groups in the country. By supporting a new generation of progressive leaders, empowering millions to fight for progressive change, and elevating the political consciousness, Our Revolution is transforming American politics to make our political and economic systems once again responsive to the needs of working families.
Jonathan Fulford now leads the field in endorsements from major progressive groups and leaders. In addition to the Our Revolution, Jonathan has been endorsed by Justice Democrats, Demand Universal Healthcare, and leading progressives in Maine. He has signed the America’s Promise Pledge and the Pine Tree Pledge to keep ‘dark money’ out of his campaign.
