Jay Gonzalez Endorses Elizabeth Warren for President – Take That, Joe

August 29, 2019

Former Massachusetts Democratic nominee for governor Jay Gonzalez has endorsed Elizabeth Warren for president.

Gonzalez lost 67 to 33 percent in November 2018 to Governor Charlie Baker, a Republican.

Gonzalez sent out an email message Thursday, August 29 highlighting Warren’s support for government funding of day care for children, government-paid universal health care, and higher taxes on higher earners.

He also highlighted Warren’s support for his campaign for governor, saying, according to State House News Service, that Warren is “courageously driven by her values, not by political calculations.”

“Despite the steep odds we faced, she offered her full support and campaigned by my side throughout the general election campaign,” Gonzalez wrote, according to State House News Service. “She did so because she genuinely believes we need a Democratic Governor in Massachusetts who will fight for our values.”
