Raising Our Future PAC Endorses G. Douglas Jones In Alabama Senate Special Election

Today Raising Our Future PAC (ROFPAC) announced its endorsement of G. Douglas Jones in the Alabama special election taking place on December 12th.  This is the first endorsement for ROFPAC, which launched in July of this year.

“We are proud to make Doug Jones our first endorsement,” said ROFPAC Chairman Matthew Erwin, “Doug Jones speaks to the issues our thousands of supporters care about.”

After an extensive vetting by a twenty-six person nomination committee, the final vote was in unanimous support of endorsing Jones.

“Jones is an outspoken advocate for early childhood education, reproductive rights and working families. This is the prototype for candidates our supporters want to see elected,” said ROFPAC Treasurer Jewelyn Cosgrove. Jones has focused his campaign on “kitchen table issues” that affect working families across the nation.

Jones has a distinguished career as a prosecutor. He is particularly known for civil rights cases including the 16th Street Church Bombing. “We fully believe he will continue his fight for civil rights as the next Senator from Alabama,” said ROFPAC Vice Chair Sara Ferrill.

In addition to this endorsement, ROFPAC will be encouraging its supporters to volunteer for the Jones campaign and provide any assistance possible to ensure Doug Jones is elected on December 12th.

“This is our first chance to elect a Senator that will put working families first,” said Nomination Committee member Marni Stewart, “and we are going to work to ensure this just the first victory of many.”

ROFPAC is an independent Political Action Committee dedicated to the concerns of progressive working families.
