Senator Cory Booker Endorses Aaron Ford For Nevada Attorney General
Las Vegas, NV -- Today, Senator Cory Booker endorsed Aaron Ford for Nevada Attorney General.
"Aaron Ford is no stranger to what it means to struggle, and we need more people in public office who understand the challenges that so many face every single day," Senator Cory Booker said. "Aaron gets it because he has lived it and worked hard to pull himself out of poverty. Whether it is reducing gun violence, fighting for meaningful criminal justice reform, or improving the mental health care system, Aaron Ford will be a persistent advocate for Nevadans as Attorney General."
"I'm proud to receive the support of Senator Cory Booker," said State Senate Majority Leader Aaron Ford. "As a young man who grew up grew up with tough times, I felt that the deck was stacked against me, but I never gave up. I will bring that same persistence to the office of Nevada Attorney General: I’ll take on scammers who rip off our seniors, insurance companies who deny care, polluters who poison our air and water, and criminals and drug dealers who prey on our families. Ensuring that every Nevada family feels safe and has a fair shot at success is my top priority."
Aaron Ford has also been endorsed by Vice President Joe Biden, the Professional Firefighters of Nevada, Former Sheriffs Mike Haley and Bill Young, former Governor Bob Miller, former Nevada Attorney General Frankie Sue Del Papa, the Nevada AFL-CIO, SEIU 1107, AFSCME Local 4041, Culinary Local 226, Southern Nevada Central Labor Council, Communications Workers of America, District 9, UFCW Local 711, IATSE Local 720, IBEW Locals 401, 357 and 396, the Nevada State Education Association, the Clark County Education Association, the Nevada Veterans Association, the Human Rights Campaign, and many more.
