Congresswoman Barbara Lee Endorses Deb Haaland for Congress

BarbaraLee

My name is Barbara Lee and I have the privilege of representing California's 13th District.

It matters now more than ever that we elect champions for equity, for justice, and for the people; that's why I'm very proud to endorse Deb Haaland for New Mexico's 1st Congressional District.

We need Deb's voice and experiences at the table, especially since over 12,000 people have been elected to Congress and not one has been a Native American woman. More than that, however, we need her tested leadership. For nearly two decades, Deb has dedicated her life to increasing voting access in Indian Country and throughout New Mexico -- which is why in 2016, under Deb's leadership as State Democratic Party Chair, she led New Mexico to be one of two states to flip its State House blue, won two of three statewide races, and posted record-breaking voter turnout.

As a member of Congress and progressive Democrat, I know what we need and what it will take to move this nation toward a more perfect union. I'm with Deb all the way -- and I urge you to join me today with a $25, $50, or $100 contribution to her historic campaign.

Sincerely,

Congresswoman Barbara Lee
Representing California's 13th District
