Senator Elizabeth Warren Endorses Del. Sam Rasoul for Virginia Lt. Governor

ROANOKE - On Wednesday, United States Senator Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) endorsed Del. Sam Rasoul (D-11) in his bid for Virginia Lieutenant Governor.

"Sam Rasoul is a hard worker who dreams big, fights hard, and gets results. Sam is the passionate, progressive voice Virginians deserve. As a Delegate, Sam showed determination in the fight to expand Medicaid, lower health care costs, and raise the minimum wage," said Sen. Warren. "As Lt. Governor, Sam has a plan to ensure quality, affordable childcare, and guaranteed paid medical and sick leave for all workers. I’m proud to endorse Delegate Sam Rasoul for Lieutenant Governor and I hope you vote for him in the Democratic Primary on June 8th."

"Sen. Warren has taught millions of Americans that fighting for bold policy and structural change is not just possible in the current political climate, but that it's absolutely necessary," said Rasoul. "The truth is voters don't want more of the same-old status quo politics. They want real results that improve their lives. As a proud Warren Democrat, I'll be in the fight as Lieutenant Governor to bring Virginia back stronger than ever."
