Speaker Nancy Pelosi Endorses Donald Norcross

Cherry Hill — U.S. House of Representatives Speaker Nancy Pelosi has endorsed Congressman Donald Norcross for re-election.

“From working tirelessly to provide our children with a high-quality education to protecting our national security and advocating for lower drug costs, Congressman Norcross always ensures that the issues of his constituents are at the forefront,” said Speaker Pelosi. “Congressman Norcross is a relentless champion for labor and progressive issues who is fighting to increase Americans’ paychecks at a time when the wages of our workers are falling further and further behind. His patriotic service in the Congress is respected throughout his state and the country. I am proud to support Donald Norcross’ reelection.”

Congressman Norcross strongly supports Speaker Pelosi’s efforts to defend our democracy, support working families, lower prescription drug costs, and hold President Trump and his administration accountable.

“Speaker Pelosi and I share a deep commitment to standing up for what is right – including fair wages for working men and women, affordable access to health care, quality education and a sustainable environment – and we are working tirelessly to defend our democracy against President Trump and his administration’s divisive, dangerous agenda,” said Congressman Norcross. “I sincerely thank Speaker Pelosi for her trust and support as we work side-by-side to uphold America’s values for the people we are elected to serve.”

Congress’ only electrician, Norcross serves as the Vice-Chair of the Congressional Progressive Caucus and its liaison to the Labor community. He is a lead sponsor of the Raise the Wage Act to responsibly raise the federal minimum wage to $15 an hour.

Norcross has long supported opening impeachment proceedings for President Trump, having voted to advance articles of impeachment as early as 2017. In addition to Speaker Pelosi’s endorsement, Norcross has earned the support of a diverse group of organizations that represent the interests of working people and our rights to education, health care and environmental justice, including the Congressional Progressive Caucus, the National Education Association (NEA / NJEA), the Planned Parenthood Action Fund, and the Sierra Club.
