Rep. Jerry Nadler announced today that he is endorsing Alessandra Biaggi in the Democratic primary for State Senate in District 34 on .
“We can’t afford to have the New York State Senate allied with Trump and the Republicans,” Rep. Nadler said. “The stakes for all New Yorkers are just too high when it comes to health care, public education, women’s reproductive rights, workers’ rights, immigrant rights and just about every issue we care about. We know that Alessandra Biaggi will always stand with Democrats, and be that true progressive leader that the people of her district and the people of our State deserve. That’s why I’m endorsing Alessandra and urge everyone in District 34 to vote for her.”
“Jerry Nadler has for many years been a progressive leader throughout his career and a model for how to be a progressive legislator. And right now, he is a key leader in Washington in resisting the Trump agenda,” Biaggi said. “I couldn’t be prouder to have his endorsement and pledge to follow his example in the New York State Senate.”
Biaggi has previously been endorsed by City Comptroller Scott Stringer, City Council Speaker Corey Johnson, Assemblymember Yoh-Line Niou, former Mayor David Dinkins, former Rep. Charles Rangel, former Rep. Lester Wolff, former Attorney General Oliver Koppell, 32BJ SEIU, UAW Region 9A and more than 80 progressive, political and community organizations.
