Just weeks after being the first Iowa endorsement for the national office for Our Revolution, 3rd District Congressional candidate, Pete D’alessandro, got another huge name in his corner.
Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders declared his support of D’Alasandro Monday morning. The content of the endorsement can be found below.
“I got to know Pete D’Alessandro well in 2015 and 2016 when he helped lead my grassroots presidential primary campaign in Iowa. Pete has spent his entire career fighting for working families and as a champion of progressive values, and I’m convinced that he would be an unwavering advocate in Congress for the people of Iowa. Whether it’s supporting Medicare for All, a $15/hour minimum wage, or bold action to fight climate change, Pete D’Alessandro has proven that he is the right choice for people disgusted by what goes on in Washington. That’s why I’m proud to give my strongest endorsement to Pete’s campaign for Congress in Iowa’s Third District.”

D’Alasandro faces six other candidates this June in the Democratic primary, the winner of which will go on to face incumbent Congressman, Republican David Young.
