WASHINGTON, DC – Today, the Congressional Progressive Caucus PAC (CPC PAC) announced its endorsement of Summer Lee for Pennsylvania’s 12th Congressional District.

“State Rep. Summer Lee is a champion for union rights and the labor movement, a leader for environmental justice, and strong advocate for working families across Pennsylvania,” said Congressional Progressive Caucus PAC Co-Chairs Reps. Mark Pocan, Pramila Jayapal, and Jamie Raskin. “She has led the progressive movement in the Pennsylvania state legislature and has built power for her community from the ground up – helping elect progressives up and down the ballot. We know she will bring this dedication to progressive advocacy and people-powered organizing to Congress, and we are so proud to endorse her in this campaign.”

“As a proud progressive member of the Pennsylvania State House, I am so excited to have the Congressional Progressive Caucus PAC’s support in my race for Congress,” said State Rep. Summer Lee. “The Progressive Caucus has been building power in Congress to hold our party accountable to the needs of everyday working people across the country. They led the movement to pass President Biden’s full agenda and have been on the frontlines of expanding our labor movement, advocating for Medicare for All and a Green New Deal, and putting people back at the center of our policy.”

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