Upper West Side Congressman and ranking Democrat on the House of Representatives Judiciary Committee Jerry Nadler today endorsed Robert Jackson for State Senate, District #31. The District which includes more Upper West Side Democratic voters than any other State Senate district is now represented by IDC member Marisol Alcantara.
“Robert Jackson is a tireless fighter for progressive values, and is the kind of courageous leader we need to stand up to the hate and extremism of the Trump administration,” said Congressman Jerry Nadler. “Robert has worked hard to make a real difference and he's already proven he can take on powerful interests to protect New Yorkers. He’s fought with passion, integrity and determination to fully fund our public schools, protect tenants and small businesses and to promote equality, justice and fairness – and we know he is on our side without a doubt. I’m proud to endorse Robert Jackson for State Senate today.”
Robert Jackson said, “Congressman Nadler is an extraordinary representative and leader who has never wavered in his fight for progressive values and issues. I’m honored to have his support in this campaign. This is another sign of the momentum we are feeling as we build a large and diverse grassroots campaign that is moving this campaign forward. I look forward to campaigning side-by-side with the Congressman and working with him to fight back against Trump and make a difference for families today, and generations to come.”
