“I am so honored to have the endorsement of my great friend in the United States Senate, Cory Booker,” Senator Ed Markey said. “Since we came to the Senate, Cory and I have talked about a hopeful and progressive vision for our nation’s future. We have stood together in the fight for justice, for change, and for opportunity for all. Our country is stronger and our futures brighter because of Cory’s leadership, and I am proud to have partnered with him to create bold, progressive change. I thank him for his friendship and am honored to have his support for my re-election.”
Hey, this is Cory Booker, United States Senator, and this is easy. I endorse Ed Markey for the United States Senate.
He and I got to the Senate at about the same time. He is a friend, a colleague, and frankly, he’s somebody that I lean on.
He’s one of the most respected voices for progressive change in all of Washington. He has earned his keeps.
He has advanced causes on all the fronts of justice, from criminal justice, to environmental justice, to economic justice, and more.
And when it comes to Massachusetts, don’t mess with Ed Markey, because his state is always his top priority. He is fighting for the people. You can trust him.
He is, in dark times, a true lightworker.
Please return him to the United States Senate. Help us to make sure that, in these challenging times, we have the champion that he is. Thank you.
