Democracy for America backs Carol Shea-Porter in New Hampshire’s 1st Congressional District
BURLINGTON, VT – This afternoon, Democracy for America (DFA) announced its endorsement of Carol Shea-Porter for Congress in New Hampshire’s 1st Congressional District.
Democracy for America has been proud to consistently support Shea-Porter since her very first trail-blazing, grassroots run for Congress in 2006.
Statement from Democracy for America's Chair Jim Dean on today's endorsement of Shea-Porter:
"Carol Shea-Porter long ago earned the dedicated support of some of the smartest, hardest-working progressive activists anywhere in the country with her steadfast commitment to fighting for New Hampshire working families. We’re excited to help return Carol to Congress because we need more grassroots leaders like her in Washington fighting to fix our broken campaign finance system and standing up to the far right’s attempts to cut Medicare, Medicaid, and Social Security benefits." -- Jim Dean, Chair, Democracy for America
DFA’s endorsement of Shea-Porter brings with it a one-million member-strong grassroots army that has knocked hundreds of thousands of doors, made over 11.1 million phone calls, and raised and contributed more than $36.6 million to help elect 843 progressive candidates nationwide since 2004.
DFA is a member-driven, people-powered progressive PAC with more than 17,700 members in New Hampshire and one million members nationwide committed to taking on income inequality, money in politics, and structural racism.
