BOSTON — Foreign Policy for America today announced its endorsement of Senator Ed Markey for re-election to the United States Senate.
“Senator Markey has been a trailblazing leader throughout his career, taking on the massive global challenges of climate change and nuclear nonproliferation,” said Andrew Albertson, Executive Director of Foreign Policy for America. “He is one of just 10 senators who received a perfect score on FP4A’s congressional scorecard in the last Congress (2017-2018), and he’s on track now to do it again. For us, there’s no question — we want to see six more years of Ed’s leadership in Washington. We’re very proud to endorse him for re-election.”
Foreign Policy for America’s endorsement is the fourth national group to voice its support for Senator Markey’s re-election this week. Senator Markey also secured the support of Daily Kos, the Human Rights Campaign, and the National Association of Social Workers-PACE.
Senator Markey is a member of the Foreign Relations Committee and chairs the Subcommittee on International Development and Foreign Assistance, Economic Affairs, International Environmental Protection. Throughout his career, Senator Markey has led on global issues, including fighting the climate crisis, leading the nuclear non-proliferation movement, and protecting human rights across the world.
“Foreign Policy for America is a powerful voice standing up to the Trump administration’s dangerous foreign policy and abandonment of global leadership on issues from nuclear nonproliferation to climate change,” said Senator Ed Markey. “Foreign Policy for America recognizes that in a world where viruses spread across international borders, and carbon emissions warm every part of our planet, the United States must cooperate with other nations to secure the safety of its residents. Foreign Policy for America is working towards a more peaceful, prosperous future, and I’m proud to have their endorsement for re-election.”
Foreign Policy for America is a nonpartisan advocacy organization working to strengthen support for principled American engagement in the world. Foreign Policy for America supports policies that keep Americans safe and out of conflicts, advances prosperity for all, and are true to this country’s highest values.
