Group continues commitment to building and expanding the bench of pro-democracy public servants to protect our freedom to vote with endorsements in U.S. Senate, gubernatorial, and Secretary of State races
ATLANTA — Today, Fair Fight announced its newest slate of endorsements ahead of the 2022 midterm elections in Georgia–and its first statewide endorsements of the cycle. The group is supporting Reverend Raphael Warnock for the U.S. Senate, Stacey Abrams for Governor, and Bee Nguyen for Secretary of State. These pro-voting candidates have a proven track record of working to defend our democracy and bring historically marginalized communities into the fold of our democratic process. They will continue to empower Georgians in every corner of the state and help our communities get ahead–and stay ahead.
Fair Fight Executive Director Cianti Stewart- Reid issued the following statement:
“‘Fair Fight is proud to endorse Reverend Raphael Warnock, Stacey Abrams, and Bee Nguyen in their respective bids to represent all Georgians. Electing pro-voting candidates is more important than ever as the purveyors of voter suppression continue their attempts to silence the voices of Black, brown, and young voters. Voting rights, affordable quality health care, an economy that puts workers first, our students’ public education, reproductive freedom, and so much more are all at stake. That is why it is critical Georgians show up and show out to elect leaders like Reverend Raphael Warnock, Stacey Abrams, and Bee Nguyen. These groundbreaking candidates understand the struggles of everyday Georgians because they have lived them. And as we continue to recover from Covid-19 and subsequent economic hardships, we are proud to stand behind these changemakers who will stand up for working Georgians and struggling families.’”
These latest endorsements build on Fair Fight’s previous support of candidates for local office across the state, from the state house, state senate, and offices up and down the ballot.
