The Republican – Howard Dean’s PAC will endorse Senate candidate Ed Markey

The national progressive political action committee Democracy for America will endorse Democratic Senate candidate and U.S. Rep. Edward Markey on Monday.

Democracy for America is a grassroots organizing PAC founded by Howard Dean, the former Democratic National Committee chairman and 2004 presidential candidate.

“In this year’s special Senate primary, Democracy for America is proud to put its full support behind Ed Markey — the only tried and true progressive in the race,” Michael Langenmayr, political director of Democracy for America, said in a statement.”Democracy for America members know they can trust Markey, unlike his primary opponent, to be a reliable (Elizabeth) Warren ally in the Senate and continue his long record of standing up to conservative Democrats on health care reform and climate change.”
