Today, the Joe Garcia for Congress campaign proudly announces Barack Obama's endorsement.
"I'm proud to endorse Joe Garcia for the United States House of Representatives," said Barack Obama. "Over the last eight years, we've made tremendous strides towards making our nation safer, stronger, and fairer, but it's clear that to continue this progress, we need to send more commonsense leaders like Joe back to Congress to get things done for the middle class. Joe is a champion for South Florida families and isn't afraid to take on the tough fights, like defending a woman's right to make her own healthcare decisions, protecting Social Security and Medicare, making sure we keep our sacred promises to our nation's veterans and their families, and addressing the crushing burden of student loan debt felt by so many Florida students and families. Joe is the kind of tough and smart leader who will build on all we've accomplished and take our nation forward, and that's why I know South Floridians can count on Joe Garcia."
"I was proud to serve alongside Barack Obama, both in his administration and as a Democratic member of Congress and today I'm honored to receive his endorsement," said Joe Garcia, candidate for Florida's 26th Congressional District. "Barack Obama has spent the past eight years doing the right thing. He has stood up for the immigrant community, for women, for students and for our seniors. And, in Washington I'll work to expand on Obama's vision for our country so that every South Floridian can get ahead and stay ahead."
