Leading Voting Rights Organization Endorses Max Rose for Congress

WASHINGTON – The Voter Protection Project (VPP), the largest national PAC focused on electing voting rights champions and holding Republicans accountable for their attacks on the ballot box, proudly announces its early support for Max Rose who is taking on Republican Congresswoman Nicole Malliotakis in New York’s 11th Congressional district. 

“We are thrilled to see Max Rose step up yet again to serve his community and look forward to helping him flip this seat, ” said Heather Greven, Executive Director of the Voter Protection Project. “Max has a proven track record of service that voters in New York’s 11th district can count on.” 

“As a former cosponsor for H.R. 1 For the People Act and a strong advocate of voting rights, I am honored to be endorsed by such a mission-driven and effective organization,” said Max Rose, candidate for Congress. “What this country needs right now is politicians who are willing to do the right thing, no matter the cost and that is what I have done my entire life. Safeguarding the sanctity of the American vote is an issue which cuts to the core principles of our democracy and I look forward to leading on legislation which protects the right of Americans to vote. ”

After an $8 million dollar inaugural cycle as an organization, the Voter Protection Project is doubling down for 2022. Max Rose joins other recently endorsed powerhouse candidates like recently elected Congresswoman Melanie Stansbury, Cheri Beasley for Senate, Tim Ryan for Senate, Quaye Quarty for CA-27, Christina Bohannan in IA-02, Bridget Fleming in NY-01, and John Lira in TX-23. VPP will continue to make early investments to protect and elect Democrats who will make voting easier, not harder.
Founded in 2019, the Voter Protection Project works to confront the architects of voter suppression directly at the ballot box. Following the Supreme Court’s Rucho v. Common Cause ruling, which stated that federal courts cannot regulate partisan gerrymandering, VPP has taken on the fight to defeat voter suppression state-by-state. During the 2020 cycle, they raised over $8-million to support candidates for office at the federal and state levels that champion fair and representative elections.
