Kensington, MD – Today U.S. Representatives Grace F. Napolitano and Tony Cárdenas (both D-CA) endorsed Chris Van Hollen for U.S. Senate.
“As communities across the nation urgently seek solutions to end the epidemic of gun violence, Chris Van Hollen has been on the front lines of the effort to make our streets safer,” said Rep. Napolitano. “As Vice Chair of the Gun Violence Prevention Task Force, I know firsthand the importance of having effective leaders fighting to keep guns out of the wrong hands. On gun safety and on a host of other issues important to hardworking families — from fighting income inequality and creating more shared prosperity, to combating climate change and expanding access to quality education for every child, Chris is the proven leader we need in the United States Senate.”
“Chris Van Hollen works tirelessly in Congress to get results for his constituents. He has fought and won battles to increase access to affordable healthcare, to clean up the environment, to reduce gun violence, and to help ensure every child has access to a quality education, no matter their zip code,” said Rep. Cárdenas. “When I look at Chris’s track record of fighting for priorities that strike at the heart of American values — immigration reform, education, access to health care — there’s no question that he’d be a powerful force in the Senate to move Maryland and the entire country forward, and I’m proud to endorse him.”
