WASHINGTON, DC – Today, the Congressional Progressive Caucus PAC endorsed Congresswoman Carolyn B. Maloney for re-election in New York’s 12th congressional district.
Congressional Progressive Caucus PAC Co-Chairs Pramila Jayapal, Mark Pocan, and Jamie Raskin released the following statements:
“The Congressional Progressive Caucus PAC is proud to endorse Carolyn B. Maloney for re-election,” said CPC PAC Co-Chair Pramila Jayapal. “Carolyn has been a progressive leader ever since she served on the New York City Council, and was an early leader on progressive issues including equal pay for women. She has always been a strong supporter of key progressive priorities including Medicare for All, the Green New Deal, and getting Big Money out of politics. We are proud to support her campaign for re-election as she continues fighting for workers, families, and people across New York.”
“We need a progressive leader who has always put people over profits, fought for both the Green New Deal and Medicare for All, and who has always sought out solutions to some of the toughest problems,” said CPC PAC Co-Chair Mark Pocan. “That leader is Carolyn Maloney and we need her leadership and expertise in Congress to push for the bold progressive agenda of the Congressional Progressive Caucus.”
“Carolyn is a fearless fighter with longstanding progressive values,” said CPC PAC Co-Chair Jamie Raskin. “As Chair of the Oversight Committee, she is leading the main investigative committee that is asking the tough questions on issues like women’s equal pay, the opioid epidemic, Postmaster General DeJoy’s leadership, and the lack of preparedness to the events on January 6th. She never backs away from a fight, and now more than ever, we need her leadership to stand up to the powerful interests and protect working families.”
“I am thrilled to receive the endorsement of the Congressional Progressive Caucus PAC,” said Congresswoman Carolyn B. Maloney. “The CPC is leading the fight everyday to ensure working families are able to participate in our growing economy and thrive in a Biden Administration. I have dedicated my career to protecting the civil rights and liberties of New Yorkers and will continue to fight for economic and racial justice.”
In 2020, the PAC raised $4.4 million and launched its first-ever independent expenditure arm, helping elect eight new candidates to Congress.
