SACRAMENTO – 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 Daniel Hernandez in Arizona’s competitive 6th Congressional District.
“State Rep. Hernandez is a rare candidate who has truly walked the walk when it comes to voting rights,” said Heather Greven, Executive Director of the Voter Protection Project. “As an Organizer and as an elected official, Daniel has fought back against voting restrictions and won. From expanding access to students who want to vote on campus to ensuring rural communities have adequate polling places and staff, Daniel Hernandez has continuously been a champion for all Arizonans when it comes to voting rights. With a razor-thin majority in the house, it’s critical that we rally around Daniel as the candidate who gives us the best chance in November and as a proven legislator who can get things done.”
“I’ve spent my entire adult life organizing and engaging voters in our democracy,” said Daniel Hernandez, Congressional Candidate for Arizona’s 6th Congressional District. “And now, as Republicans are dialing up the heat on their attacks against voting rights, I am more energized than ever to protect the right to vote. I’m thrilled to have the support of the Voter Protection Project who has stood arm in arm in the fight to ensure all Americans are able to make their voices heard.”
After an $8.9 million dollar inaugural cycle as an organization, the Voter Protection Project is doubling down for 2022. Daniel Hernandez joins other recently endorsed powerhouse candidates like Cheri Beasley for Senate, Michelle Vallejo in TX-15, Hillary Scholten in MI-03, Max Rose for NY-11, Quaye Quartey for CA-25, and Christina Bohannan in IA-02. 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 $8.9-million to support candidates for office at the federal and state levels that champion fair and representative elections.
