New Politics, the national bipartisan organization dedicated to electing outstanding service leaders to all levels of government, on Tuesday made their first congressional endorsements of the 2020 election cycle, throwing their support behind the reelection campaigns of a cohort of first-term service leaders who have quickly distinguished themselves as part of a new movement for servant leadership in Congress. The endorsements follow a 2018 election cycle in which service candidates ran, and won, in some of the toughest districts in the country and make up a significant portion of the freshman class.
The first set of New Politics endorsements are:
“In just a short time, these service leaders have distinguished themselves in Congress by their willingness to put country over party and focus on the needs of their communities over the partisan politics of Washington,” said Emily Cherniack, Founder and Executive Director of New Politics. “We’ve gotten to know these leaders well over the last few years and could not be more excited by their leadership in Congress, and our team is ready to advise and support them as they gear up for their first reelection campaigns.”
New Politics endorsements include strategic advising in all aspects of these members’ reelection campaigns, such as fundraising, communications, organizing, and hiring and team building. In 2018, New Politics helped raise over $7M for their slate of endorsed congressional candidates and this year they will be growing their impact substantially.
