Progressive Turnout Project Endorses Rep. Andy Kim in New Jersey
Voter turnout organization backs congressman for re-election in 2020
CHICAGO—Progressive Turnout Project today endorsed Representative Andy Kim in his bid for re-election in New Jersey’s 3rd congressional district. The organization supports Kim due to his commitment to protecting, restoring, and expanding voting rights, as well as his history of outstanding public service.
“Andy has proven himself as a leader in Washington and back home in his district,” said Executive Director Alex Morgan. “We’ve seen his commitment to fight against voter suppression and gerrymandering firsthand in his sponsorship of the For the People Act, and his vision for campaign finance and ethics reform is commendable. We admire that he lives his values through a robust focus on constituent services—exemplified by the fact that he has held more town halls than any other current representative. We are extremely proud to endorse Andy Kim for Congress.”
Today’s endorsement is part of a long-term effort by Progressive Turnout Project to keep the Democratic majority in the House and follows an initial list of 15 candidates endorsed for re-election. Progressive Turnout Project will release additional endorsements as they happen.
Progressive Turnout Project is a grassroots-funded political action committee with a single mission: get Democrats to the polls. PTP designs, tests, and executes specialized voter-turnout programs targeting inconsistent Democratic voters in the most competitive races across the country. Since its inception in 2015, the organization has raised more than $32 million with a supporter base of over 3 million and invested in voter-turnout programs in 130 House and Senate races.
