Senator Cory Booker Endorses Patricia Ackerman for NV-02
Carson City, NV (September 14, 2020) – This week, Patricia Ackerman, the Democratic candidate for Nevada’s 2nd Congressional District, was endorsed by U.S. Senator Cory Booker.
“I’m proud to endorse Patricia Ackerman for Congress,” said Booker. “Patricia will be a voice in Congress for those who are too often left out and left behind. She’ll be a tireless advocate for environmental justice, affordable and accessible healthcare, and economic opportunity for all communities. She understands that the ties that bind us together as Americans are so much stronger than the lines that divide us. I look forward to working together with her in Congress to build a more just and fair country for every American.”
In response to earning Booker’s endorsement, Ackerman stated: “Earning Senator Booker’s endorsement is a highlight in this challenging and yet quite winnable race. He is a symbol of hope and grace amidst the challenges we are currently facing. I’ve learned so much from him. Thank you, sir, for your faith in me. I’m humbled and grateful.”
