US Senator Ed Markey endorses Andrea Campbell for Attorney General

“Andrea Campbell is the Attorney General Massachusetts needs right now – experienced, effective, dedicated, visionary.”

BOSTON – Senator Ed Markey today endorsed Andrea Campbell for Attorney General, citing her experience, dedication and vision. This marks the first endorsement from a member of the Massachusetts congressional delegation in the Attorney General’s race, and builds on Campbell’s strong, statewide coalition of support.

“Andrea Campbell is the Attorney General Massachusetts needs right now – experienced, effective, dedicated, visionary. She understands the struggles of Massachusetts residents, especially our most vulnerable, because she has lived them. She understands what opportunity looks like, because she has created it. She understands what justice and accountability look like, because she has always fought for it. As our Attorney General, she will do so much more than keep the public safe and enforce our laws, she will reaffirm our faith in a true justice system. I am proud to endorse Andrea Campbell for Attorney General of Massachusetts,” Markey said.

Senator Markey, a national leader on energy, the environment and telecommunications, has a prolific legislative record on major issues across the policy spectrum and a deep commitment to improving the lives of Massachusetts residents.

“I’m honored and grateful to have Senator Markey’s support in this race. We have partnered in the work from environmental justice to criminal legal reform, and are unafraid to challenge the status-quo to ensure every Massachusetts resident has access to the same opportunities we had growing up here,” Campbell said.

Campbell’s campaign continues to gain momentum since launching in early February. During the first month of her campaign, Campbell led the AG candidates in fundraising efforts with nearly $330,000, earned the endorsement of more than 60 elected officials from every county in Massachusetts, built a statewide operation of over 150 active volunteers, and traveled across the state, from Duxbury to Pittsfield to Worcester, to speak about her vision for the office.
