WASHINGTON, DC – Today, the Congressional Progressive Caucus PAC (CPC PAC) announced its endorsement of Jonathan Jackson in Illinois’ 1st congressional district.

“The Congressional Progressive Caucus PAC is working arduously to protect the rights of hard-working American families and build a vibrant and prosperous future that leaves no American behind,” said Jonathan Jackson. “I look forward to being a part of this progress for our great nation and am honored to be endorsed by this organization.”

“Through his life’s work and community involvement, Jonathan Jackson has demonstrated his commitment to progressive values, such as lifting people out of poverty, protecting our democracy, providing access to healthcare, and championing social justice,” said Congressional Progressive Caucus PAC Co-Chairs Mark Pocan, Pramila Jayapal, and Jamie Raskin. “He has shown his dedication to the goals of our progressive agenda, and we are proud to endorse his campaign for Illinois’ first congressional district.”

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