Rep. Ayanna Pressley (D-Mass.) endorsed Sen. Elizabeth Warren for president on Wednesday, netting the front-running senator from Massachusetts another prominent backer in her race to secure the Democratic nomination.
Pressley made the announcement in a YouTube video. “For Elizabeth and for me power belongs in the hands of the people,” says Pressley. “That’s why she’s fighting for fundamental change that restores power to those who have been left behind and centers those who’ve never had access to it in the first place.
“This election is a fight for the very soul of our nation,” Pressley added. “Elizabeth knows how to fight and she knows how to win. I’m proud to call her my senator. I can’t wait to call her our president.”
