We are enormously pleased to announce that Progressive Massachusetts has endorsed Representative Carl Sciortino to replace Ed Markey in the 5th Congressional District.
We set the bar high – requiring 60% of our members to endorse – and Carl exceeded that goal, handily winning with 75.3% of the vote.
Our members had many wonderful things to say about all candidates in the race – four of whom chose to provide thoughtful answers to our questionnaire. You can see their responses here – and judge for yourself.
We were particularly struck by the passion, leadership and commitment Carl has brought to some of the most important progressive legislative battles in recent years. We know he will provide that same leadership in Washington where it’s sorely needed.
Thanks again to Senator Katherine Clark, Senator Will Brownsberger and Sheriff Peter Koutoujian for their participation in the process.
