FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Columbus, GA – Teresa Tomlinson, two-term Mayor of Columbus and candidate for U.S. Senate from Georgia, has earned the endorsement of People for the American Way Voters Alliance PAC.
“Our campaign is proud to stand with the People for the American Way in our collective fight for better governing progressive values throughout our state and our nation,” Tomlinson said. “These are dangerous times for hard working Americans and people of color. From a failure of our public health system to a collapse of our economy, organizations like People for the American Way work every day to fight back and create a better nation for us all, and that’s why I’m honored to receive their endorsement.”
Founded in 1981 by Norman Lear, People For the American Way has mobilized Americans nationwide to fight for progressive values: equal rights, freedom of speech, religious liberty, and equal justice under the law for every American. PFAW’s Voters Alliance PAC is committed to winning elections that will lead to progressive outcomes reflecting our true American values.
Tomlinson was twice elected Mayor of Columbus, each time with more than 60%, in a majority African-American city. She also served as Public Safety Director and head of Homeland Security, and she holds a National Security Secret Clearance with the Department of Defense. As mayor, she helped propel the city to be named one of the 25 Best Run Cities in America. As a proud Democrat, Tomlinson is strongly pro-choice, supports universal health care, is committed to strong environmental protections to address climate change, supports common-sense gun legislation, and will fight tirelessly against voter suppression and racial discrimination.
Teresa has also been endorsed by Democracy for America, the National Organization of Women PAC, Asian American Advocacy Fund, and more than 100 Democratic leaders and activists from every region and every walk of life in Georgia.
