Our Revolution Endorses Andy Levin in MI-11

April 11, 2022


ROYAL OAK, MI – Tonight, on an organizing call rallying together over three thousand progressive activists from across the country, Congressman Andy Levin accepted the endorsement of Our Revolution, the largest grassroots funded progressive political organization in the country. Launched by Senator Bernie Sanders in 2016, Our Revolution has worked to elect progressives up and down the ballot and to bring progressive issues to the forefront of Democratic politics.


“Andy is the top Democrat on work-related issues in the Congress,” said Our Revolution Board Chair Larry Cohen. “He is an environmental champion and is a key leader of the Congressional Progressive Caucus. His opponent is a member of the centrist and fiscally conservative New Democrat Coalition. The difference means everything.”


“Amid a contentious primary race pitting incumbent against incumbent with Michigan's new districts, on tonight’s call, Andy laid out the progressive ideals that he has delivered on in Congress – being a champion for labor, being a health care advocate, and serving as Deputy Whip of the Congressional Progressive Caucus,” said Joseph Geevarghese, Executive Director of Our Revolution. “These progressive priorities are what voters of Michigan’s new 11th District want and what sets Andy apart. His race is a priority for Our Revolution’s continued, nationwide effort to build and expand progressive power at the local, state, and national levels using our grassroots organizing that has delivered high-profile wins."


“Our campaign is really about building a movement,” said Congressman Andy Levin. “As the union organizer of Congress, I’m proud of our truly progressive coalition that will last beyond any one candidate and any one race. Having Our Revolution on our team will make the difference in this all-hands-on-deck effort to save our democracy, fight for Medicare for All and win a Green New Deal in this decade.”


To date, Congressman Levin has received every national union, environmental, climate change and progressive foreign policy endorsement in the race. You can read the full list here.
