Levin Campaigns in New Hampshire and Michigan as a National Surrogate for Senator Warren
Clinton Township, MI –This weekend, Rep. Andy Levin stumped at home and traveled to the key first-in-the-nation primary state of New Hampshire to support his choice for president, Massachusetts Senator Elizabeth Warren. On Friday, January 24, Rep. Levin held community conversations in Portsmouth and Merrimack, New Hampshire on protecting our water from PFAS and other chemical contamination.
“Every day representing Macomb and Oakland Counties and much of the Clinton River Watershed, I am fighting to protect our water — in our rivers and sewers leading into Lake St. Clair and coming out of our taps at home,” Rep. Levin said. “That’s why I am fighting so hard to see Elizabeth Warren become our president, and I want to talk to as many voters as possible about her environmental justice and clean water plans.”
“Elizabeth has called for reinstating and then tripling the Superfund tax, to continue to invest in brownfield remediation to ensure that we protect our communities from the legacy of pollution — and we put people to work in the process!” Rep. Levin continued. “As I’m working with the Michigan Department of Environment, Great Lakes, and Energy (EGLE) and the EPA to determine the cost of remediation for the ‘green ooze’ and PFAS situation in Madison Heights right now, I can tell you that funding would really help Michigan’s Ninth District!”
On Saturday, January 25, Rep. Levin hosted canvass kickoffs in Rochester and Conway, New Hampshire, and on Sunday, January 26, he headlined a volunteer-organized meet-and-greet in Clinton Township, Michigan. He explained to Warren volunteers in both states why he believes she is the candidate with the energy and the plans to bring the American Dream back into view for working people in Macomb County and across the nation.
Rep. Levin was one of the first two Members of Congress outside of Massachusetts to endorse Sen. Warren ahead of the July Democratic Primary Debates in Detroit. Next weekend, he will travel for the second time to Iowa on behalf of Sen. Warren, who on Saturday received the endorsement of Iowa’s largest newspaper, the Des Moines Register.
