Hillary Clinton Endorsed by Arizona Congressman Ruben Gallego [View all]

Citing “a sea change in how Americans view progressive issues,” and a desire to continue the “progressive” wins and legacy of Barack Obama, he calls Clinton “our best-known, most experienced, most electable candidate.”

In a statement posted on Medium that uses the term “progressive” no fewer than 25 times, Gallego writes, “Secretary Clinton grew up in the progressive movement, motivated by the same audacity to change the world that has always drawn grassroots organizers to our causes and ideals.

“Like many progressives, she has spent years fighting for issues that have only recently become popular . . . Clinton’s progressive credentials are in sync with her progressive agenda. And that agenda is well crafted to this time in the progressive movement — a time in which we are both focused on preserving the gains of the Obama era while also looking to new policy goals.”

He calls Clinton “a progressive who is fighting for immigration reform, for a higher minimum wage, for campaign finance reform, for more labor rights, for broader access to healthcare, for health rights for women, for LGBT rights, for more affordable education . . . and just about anything else you could name on any progressive’s wish list.”
