Ben Jealous for Governor – There are Plenty of Reasons Why We Need Him NOW! See the Latest Talking Points
Barack Obama Endorses Ben Jealous!
October 1, 2018, Ben Jealous, former National President and CEO of the NAACP received the endorsement of Barack Obama, 44th President of the United States.
“Ben Jealous is an accomplished civil rights leader, businessman, and advocate for working people,” said Obama. “His exemplary work as national President of the NAACP and as a leader in Maryland fighting for the DREAM Act, marriage equality, voting rights, and the abolition of the death penalty make him the best candidate for Governor. As a social impact investor, Ben has worked closely with small businesses, creating jobs and building a more inclusive economy. He has the vision, experience, and courage to move families forward, which is why I ask all Marylanders to stand with me in supporting his election as Maryland’s next Governor.”
“I’m honored to receive this endorsement from President Barack Obama. Across the country, progressive candidates are seeking to build on the successes of his Administration and continue to deliver real solutions for working people. As governor, I’ll build on the Affordable Care Act as well as President Obama’s progressive economic agenda to pass serious healthcare reform as well as expand economic opportunity for all Marylanders.
