  • From the Edwin Santana for Congress campaign:

    Fredericksburg, VA – National progressive organization, Common Defense, endorsed Edwin Santana’s congressional campaign, yesterday, announcing the move to their 60,000 plus followers on Twitter. It is another signal that the Santana campaign’s progressive message continues to resonate with people both in the district and outside of it, ahead of the June 12 Primary election.

    “Edwin Santana is a Marine Corps veteran, second-generation Puerto Rican, and progressive fighting for single-payer healthcare, strengthened public education, and economic opportunity. Edwin’s bold and unapologetic stances on racial justice and ending sexual assault are particularly in line with the values of Common Defense veterans and military families,” read the Common Defense announcement.

    “It’s an honor to receive Common Defense’s endorsement. They are a progressive, grassroots organization that fights for the same issues that our campaign does on a daily basis. They have mobilized against President Trump and his divisive agenda, and it is my privilege to stand alongside them and the other candidates across the country that they’ve endorsed, like Fayrouz Saad, Randy Bryce, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, and Jared Golden, among others,” said Edwin.

    WIth 19 days to go, before the Primary election, the Santana campaign continues its boots-on-the-ground, volunteer-heavy strategy as we all work towards the overall goal of defeating Rob Wittman in November.
