ALLISON RUSSO PERSONALLY ENDORSED BY FORMER PRESIDENT BARACK OBAMA IN HIS FIRST WAVE OF MIDTERM ENDORSEMENTS
“Thank you Pres. Barack Obama for the endorsement of our campaign,” said Allison Russo, candidate for State Representative in Ohio’s 24th District. “I’m proud to continue the fight for affordable and accessible healthcare for all Ohioans!”
Pres. Obama shared his endorsement on Twitter this afternoon, writing,
“Today I’m proud to endorse such a wide and impressive array of Democratic candidates – leaders as diverse, patriotic, and big-hearted as the America they’re running to represent. I’m confident that, together, they’ll strengthen this country we love by restoring opportunity, repairing our alliances and standing in the world, and upholding our fundamental commitment to justice, fairness, responsibility, and the rule of law. But first, they need our votes.”
Allison has spent two decades advising government leaders and policymakers on the healthcare needs of seniors, vulnerable populations, Veterans, and military families. She will fight to adequately fund our public schools, support economic strategies that sustain working families & vibrant communities, and find innovative solutions in healthcare that increase access and affordability for all Ohioans.
