President Barack Obama endorses Margaret Good for Congress in FL District 16
Sarasota, FL – President Barack Obama has announced his endorsement for Representative Margaret Good for Congress today. This endorsement comes one day after Vice President Joe Biden announced his endorsement for Representative Good. Good is in a strong position to flip this seat in November. These high-profile endorsements come after three quarters of impressive fundraising from Good, who outpaced her opponent 2-1 in the pre-primary period.
“I’m proud to endorse these outstanding Democratic candidates who will work to get the virus under control, rebuild the economy and the middle class, and protect Americans’ health care and preexisting conditions protections from Republican assault. They’re dedicated to shoring up and strengthening our democracy, a project that’s going to take time and require all of us — but it begins by electing Democrats right now. So give these candidates your vote — and vote early if you can, either by mail or in person,” said President Obama.
“I am grateful for the support of President Obama as we work to bring meaningful change to the Suncoast. Voters in our community understand what this race means to the state of Florida and to this country. We deserve a representative who works hard to find solutions to the issues that are important to us in Florida, like the economy, climate change, COVID-19, and access to healthcare,” said Rep. Good.
