Press Release: Congresswoman Gwen Moore Endorses Naomi Andrews in New Hampshire’s First Congressional District

Washington, DC –Naomi Andrews, Candidate for New Hampshire’s First Congressional District, is proud to announce the endorsement of Congresswoman Gwen Moore, Member of Congress from Wisconsin’s 4th District. 

Congresswoman Moore released the following statement:

“Congresswoman Carol Shea-Porter of New Hampshire’s 1st District is not seeking re-election. But I am very happy that my friend, Naomi Andrews, is running for her seat. Naomi served as Carol’s Chief of Staff for many years and won both campaigns that she managed for Carol. 

I support Naomi because she knows policy. She’s a progressive, down-to-earth woman who knows and understands the struggles of working-class Americans. Growing up in a working-class family, Naomi’s mom works at a restaurant and her dad works in a nursing home. 

Naomi is a natural leader and she has the courage to stand up to this Donald Trump and his right-wing cronies.”

Candidate Naomi Andrews released the following statement:

“I am proud and honored to receive the endorsement of my friend, Congresswoman Gwen Moore. She is an incredible leader in Congress—she serves on the prestigious House Committee on Financial Services as well as the House Budget Committee; she is a member of the Democratic Steering and Policy Committee; and she has led on issues like health insurance reform, women’s health, and many other issues that impact women. I am grateful for her friendship and support, and I look forward to serving with her in January 2019. ”
