Run for Something (RFS), the groundbreaking organization that supports strong voices in the next generation of progressive leadership, has endorsed Anna Halverson in the contested Democratic primary in the 80th Assembly District.
“The GOP overturned Roe by playing the long game at the local level,” said RFS co-founder and co-executive director, Amanda Litman. “We need pro-choice candidates in every seat, up and down the ballot, to help win back abortion rights. We’re here to help the next generation lead this fight.”
“It is an honor to join the strong, progressive, pro-choice candidates all across the Country who have earned the RFS endorsement,” Halverson said. “Run For Something is a leader in supporting candidates like me who are stepping up to meet this critical moment and fighting for reproductive rights. I welcome their support.”
