FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
I have dedicated my entire life to serving others. I have worked with people all over the world to make enormous improvements in areas such as social justice, economic empowerment, and criminal justice. I am supporting Teresa Tomlinson because I have seen her fierce devotion to the values of equality and justice. She has fought her entire life to build a prosperous government that works for all people and the United States Senate is in desperate need of a leader who will fight for all of the people, not just some.”
