NYACK, NY – President Barack Obama has announced his endorsement of Mondaire Jones, Democratic nominee in New York’s 17th Congressional District, in his first slate of endorsements this cycle.
“I’m proud to endorse this diverse and hopeful collection of thoughtful, empathetic, and highly qualified Democrats,” said President Barack Obama.
“It was not too long ago that I was knocking on doors for then-Senator Obama in Nevada, during his first run for President.
One year later, I was a young staffer working for President Obama in the Department of Justice on judicial nominations and reforming our criminal legal system.
As a member of Congress, I look forward to continuing that important work in an even bolder way.”
