Our Revolution, American progressive and social democratic political action organization that evolved from Senator Bernie Sanders’ 2016 presidential campaign, has officially endorsed Cathy Glasson for Iowa Governor.
“We are proud to support a progressive candidate like Cathy who has such strong ties to the labor community, ” said Shannon Jackson, Executive Director of Our Revolution. “From her work with the SEIU [Service Employees International Union], to her activism on issues like raising the minimum wage and providing universal health care, Cathy has set herself apart from the competition.”
Glasson responded to the announcement on her campaign page and spoke about working closely with Our Revolution to “build a new movement to change politics in our state”.
“I’m honored that our grassroots, people-powered campaign now earned the national endorsement of Our Revolution,” Cathy said.
Cathy is the second Iowa candidate to receive the endorsement of the Our Revolution’s national office. Third District Congressional Candidate, Pete D’Alessandro was the first to be endorsed on January 4th.
