The Raskin campaign released a statement announcing the endorsement of State Senator Susan Lee of District 16.
“Jamie has been a remarkable partner in the Senate and I know he will be an incredibly respected and beloved leader in Congress,” said Senator Susan Lee. “Jamie has taken on all the hard fights and won them, building teamwork and coalitions. He has been my key ally on issues that affect women, families, seniors, and children. I’m honored and thrilled to support his campaign for Congress because we need someone in Washington who can represent all the different communities within this diverse district and communicate our shared vision with unsurpassed eloquence and effectiveness. I will be campaigning hard for Jamie Raskin!”
That makes three MoCo state senators endorsing Raskin: Lee, Rich Madaleno (D18) and Karen Montgomery (D14). Lee had formerly been reported as considering a run for Congress herself.
