|The Voter Protection Project announces three new endorsements in competitive house seats across the country ahead of this fall’s midterm elections
|SACRAMENTO, CA – 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 support for Patrick Branco running in Hawaii’s 2nd Congressional District, Anette Taddeo running in Florida’s 27th Congressional District and Jared Moskowitz running in Florida’s 23rd Congressional District.
“We are excited to support these dedicated and dynamic voting rights champions and add them to our list of endorsed candidates this cycle,” said Heather Greven, Executive Director of the Voter Protection Project. “Maintaining control of the House is critical, Republicans have made it very clear that they will change the rules and disenfranchise voters to fuel their attacks on our fundamental rights. Strong candidates like Patrick Branco, Annette Taddeo, and Jared Moskowitz will need to win their races to block this dangerous agenda. The Voter Protection Project is ready to help deliver these seats for Democrats come November.”
“The right to vote should be a fundamental freedom in our country. As our democracy is in peril, it’s more important than ever before that we elect leaders that defend our constitution and our democratic way of life,” said Annette Taddeo, candidate for Florida’s 27th Congressional District.“I am proud to have the support of the Voter Protection Project in this fight to ensure that all eligible Americans have access to the ballot box. When I’m in Congress, I will work with my colleagues to make voting more accessible to all Americans to ensure that our representatives reflect the will of the people.”
“Protecting our democracy must be our top priority, and as a Member of Congress, I will work to protect voting rights, expand voting options, improve gerrymandering, and reform campaign finance in addition to securing our democratic institutions from bad faith attempts to subvert our laws and norms,” said Jared Moskowitz, candidate for Florida’s 23rd Congressional District. “I’m proud to be endorsed by the Voter Protection Project because of their commitment to these efforts.”
“I’m proud to have the support and endorsement of the Voter Protection Project. Serving as a US Diplomat in Venezuela and Pakistan, I saw democracy disintegrate in front of my eyes,” said Patrick Branco, candidate for Hawaii’s 2nd Congressional District.“It’s with that experience that I’m determined to ensure that our democracy is strengthened, and our right to vote protected.”
After an $8.9 million dollar inaugural cycle, the Voter Protection Project is doubling down for 2022 to protect Democracy. Patrick Branco, Annette Taddeo, and Jared Moscowitz join a strong slate of candidates endorsed by VPP this cycle including Jackie Gordon, Michelle Vallejo, Don Davis, and Robert Garcia. VPP will continue to make critical 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 all levels that champion fair and representative elections.
