WASHINGTON, DC – Today, the Congressional Progressive Caucus PAC (CPC PAC) announced its endorsement of Jamie McLeod-Skinner, the Democratic nominee in Oregon’s 5th congressional district.

“The CPC has played a critical role in electing and supporting champions for working people — and their endorsement is a clear statement of my commitment to put working people first,” said Jamie McLeod-Skinner. “Oregonians deserve a leader who will speak up for us in Congress: a leader who will deliver affordable healthcare and housing, provide relief at the gas pump, protect our communities, and help put an end to the wildfires and drought that devastate our land. I’m running to be a voice for working Oregonians from Sellwood to Sunriver — and I’m proud the Congressional Progressive Caucus PAC is endorsing our grassroots campaign.”

“As a small business owner and emergency recovery coordinator who paid her way through college and law school, Jamie McLeod-Skinner understands the challenges working families face in Oregon,” said Congressional Progressive Caucus PAC Co-Chairs Mark Pocan, Pramila Jayapal, and Jamie Raskin. “We need bold leaders who will fight tirelessly to deliver change for working people — and that’s why we’re proud to endorse Jamie’s campaign for Congress today. Jamie has campaigned on taking on corporate interests and is refusing corporate PAC money. She’s focused on common-sense issues — from affordable housing and healthcare to climate action — and that’s how she’ll win her campaign in November. We’re thrilled to back Jamie, and we look forward to supporting her grassroots campaign.”

In 2020, the PAC raised $4.4 million and launched its first-ever independent expenditure arm, helping elect eight new candidates to Congress.
