Lakeland, FL — Today, Former President Barack Obama announced his endorsement of Alan Cohn, Democratic candidate for Florida’s 15th Congressional District, along with a slate of other down ballot candidates across the country.
“I’m proud to endorse these outstanding Democratic candidates who will work to get the virus under control, rebuild the economy and the middle class, and protect Americans’ health care and preexisting conditions protections from Republican assault. They’re dedicated to shoring up and strengthening our democracy, a project that’s going to take time and require all of us—but it begins by electing Democrats right now. So give these candidates your vote—and vote early if you can, either by mail or in person.” said Former President Barack Obama.
“Barack Obama worked tirelessly for eight years as our President, striving to lead our country to its highest potential. He passed the Affordable Care Act, enacted major Wall Street reform, rescued our economy during the global financial crisis, and left a lasting legacy of progress for us to build upon. I’m proud to receive his endorsement and will work night and day in Congress to strengthen the Affordable Care Act, protect and expand Social Security and Medicare, and help provide relief to families and businesses impacted by the Coronavirus,” said Alan Cohn, Democratic Candidate for Florida’s 15th Congressional District.
This announcement follows increased national attention on the race with Alan appearing on Morning Joe on Wednesday, getting named to the DCCC’s highly selective Red to Blue program yesterday, and the slew of articles about how this race could help determine the winner of the presidential election if 270 electoral votes can’t be certified for any candidate.
