President Barack Obama officially endorsed Nevada Congresswoman Jacky Rosen today in her campaign for U.S. Senate. Rosen is the first U.S. Senate challenger to receive Obama’s endorsement in the 2018 election cycle.
“I’m proud to endorse Jacky Rosen to be the next United States Senator from Nevada,” said Obama. “Jacky’s already proven herself a strong, thoughtful leader who can be trusted to do what’s right for hardworking Nevadans. She’s fought to protect the progress we’ve made on health care, to defend women’s reproductive rights, and to come up with smarter immigration policies that don’t tear families apart, but rather keep us all safe and strong. This November, the future of the Affordable Care Act and the Supreme Court are at stake – and our health care is more important than political games. That’s why I’m with Jacky Rosen. And that’s why I’m asking Nevadans to join her, and to help take back the Senate this November.”
“President Obama was a champion for progress who improved the lives of countless families across Nevada throughout his two terms in the White House,” said Rosen. “I’m honored to have earned President Obama’s endorsement, and I appreciate his strong support in my campaign for U.S. Senate as we work to flip this seat.”
