This morning the Obama for America campaign announced the endorsement of Congresswoman Linda Sanchez. Congresswoman Sanchez represents the 39th District of California in southeast Los Angeles County. Her endorsement and active campaigning for Barack Obama should help the Senator Obama with a few key constituencies – young people, progressives, women, working families, and Latin@s.
Congresswoman Sanchez released the following statement about her endorsement:
Since I began serving in Congress five years ago, I have seen the difficulty in bringing fresh ideas to Washington, DC, and to our country. Sadly, great talent and ideas are too often dismissed because those who possessed them were seen as too idealistic, too young, or too unwilling to submit to the same old Washington way of doing things. Senator Obama is the candidate who can change that culture by mobilizing a new generation to get involved in the civic life of our country. He is reinvigorating America by showing us that we all have a stake — and a say — in our democracy and our country’s future.
