Kennedy vs. Markey: Illustrates Kennedy is the real progressive

Congressman Joe Kennedy III has shown that he has “big energy” for the Senate. On Thursday he campaigned 24-hrs straight through the southeastern part of the state.

Speaking to fisherman in Gloucester to union members in Worcester. A contrast to the lackluster efforts that Senator Markey has made in the position since 2013.

If you are confused about who is the real progressive here are a few facts to keep in mind before you cast your ballot.

Kennedy has been endorsed by the chair of the Congressional Progressive Caucus. 

Kennedy has been a leading progressive voice in Congress, fighting for Medicare for All, demanding real mental health parity, leading efforts to protect LGBTQ Americans, pushing for racial, social, economic and climate justice.

Kennedy served as chair of the Congressional Transgender Equality task force

In 2017 after seven transgender women of color had been murdered, Joe Kennedy stepped up to make sure the often overlooked population was a priority by leading this important Task Force.

Kennedy rejected PAC Money 

Kennedy isn’t accepting PAC money in his Senate race against Markey.

Conclusion

Senator Markey has a horrifying record of opposing bussing, supporting amendments to discriminate against minorities, and ignoring his constituents. With ten days left until the Democratic Primary the only person worth voting for is clearly Joe Kennedy III.
