Progressive Turnout Project Endorses Amy Kennedy
CHICAGO – Today, Progressive Turnout Project (PTP), the nation’s largest grassroots-funded Democratic voter turnout organization, endorsed Amy Kennedy for U.S. House.
Below is a statement from Progressive Turnout Project’s Executive Director, Alex Morgan:
“Trump, McConnell, and House Republicans keep blowing it.
“They lied to the American public about COVID-19 and endangered hundreds of thousands of lives. They’ve taken away the economic lifeline that was getting people through the pandemic, and they’re trying to take away people’s healthcare too.
“Instead of listening to brave protesters fighting for racial justice, they rant about protecting Confederate statues.
“Somehow, they decided to go after the post office, and soon, they’ll be out of things to wreck.
“They can’t be trusted to govern. Our country must replace them with Democrats this November.
“Amy Kennedy is one of the frontline leaders who is going to keep and expand our House majority, and stand with Joe Biden when he’s elected president. Amy is going to govern competently. She is going to take racial and economic justice seriously. She is going to make healthcare and education more affordable and more accessible for millions of Americans. She is going to fight for every American’s right to vote.
“We need leaders like Amy. Progressive Turnout Project is reaching out to millions of voters this summer and fall to make sure that these leaders can get to Washington, and get to work cleaning up the mess Donald Trump leaves behind.”
As part of its endorsement, Progressive Turnout Project offers robust field and financial support to candidates, including participation in the 2020 Turnout Fellows program. Through the Turnout Fellows program, PTP donates $5,000 to endorsed campaigns to fund salaries of campaign Fellow(s), and also provides training for Fellows. PTP also leads phone banks and virtual events for endorsed candidates.

PTP designs, tests, and executes specialized voter-turnout programs targeting inconsistent Democratic voters in the most competitive elections across the country. In 2020, the organization will invest $52.5 million to get out the vote in 18 presidential and Senate battleground states.
