TogetherFund lifts up candidates who can deliver on a progressive agenda. We are proud to announce our first congressional endorsements of the 2020 cycle:

Joe Biden
Joe BidenDemocratic Nominee - President of the United States
DONATE

At a time when our democracy is at risk and our role in the world is unsteady, America needs a unifying and experienced commander-in-chief, one who is able to make life better for everyone, everywhere. Joe Biden is that leader.

Our former Vice President and U.S. Senator from Delaware is a model of servant leadership. But above all, Joe Biden is a deeply empathetic man. His ability to connect with people, informed by his own experiences with personal suffering and enduring faith, makes him the leader we need right now. At a time when economic indicators don’t tell the whole story about the struggles of everyday people; when the world lurches from emergency to emergency without America’s influence or leadership; when Republican leadership wants to take health care away, abandon public education and ignore a climate crisis; and when our current president seeks to create chaos and division instead of order and unity, Joe knows that the times and challenges before us demand new ideas and bold actions. Joe is the one who can win the White House and make America prosperous and just for all Americans everywhere.

Jaime Harrison
Jaime HarrisonCandidate for Senate - South Carolina
DONATE

The son of a single teenage mom, Jaime was raised by his grandparents in historic Orangeburg, South Carolina, and overcame the challenges of grinding poverty with the help of teachers and mentors who believed in him. He is a fierce advocate for progressive causes and isn’t afraid to stand up for those that are all too often ignored.

Jaime’s election to the Senate will ensure that future generations of South Carolinians will be allowed to pursue their own American dream. Because when a rural hospital closes, or coverage for pre-existing conditions is threatened, the health of all South Carolinians is put at risk. Jaime knows what’s at stake. South Carolinians have the chance to replace the wildly out-of-step Lindsey Graham, an elected official who rarely listens to constituents or even visits the state, with Jaime —a bold, visionary leader raising his family in the heart of Columbia.

Lucy McBath
Lucy McBathCongresswoman, Georgia’s 6th District
DONATE

The murder of her son Jordan in 2012 was an impetus for Lucy’s gun-control activism and eventual election to Congress in 2018. During her first term, she was an essential part of the team that successfully passed bipartisan gun safety legislation and continues to lead in Washington while standing face-to-face with special interest groups like the NRA.

Congresswoman McBath’s reelection to the House of Representatives will ensure that Georgians continue to have a progressive voice in Congress. Lucy is a bold leader with the life experiences we so desperately need. She is the personification of leading with heart and not doing politics-as-usual in Washington, D.C.

Joe Cunningham
Joe CunninghamCongressman, South Carolina’s 1st District

In 2018, Joe Cunningham became the first Democrat since 1981 to represent the Lowcountry of South Carolina when he won election to the U.S. House. Since he’s been in office, he has worked tirelessly to ban offshore drilling and stop the colossal threat of climate change. A decent, caring, intelligent young father and husband, Joe has high hopes for his young family and community. He is a proven bridge-builder with a broad and inclusive agenda.

 Congressman Cunningham has the intellect, empathy and vision the people of South Carolina’s 1st District deserve in Congress. We worked hard to help him win in 2018; that work continues in 2020.

Jackie Gordon
Jackie GordonNew York’s 2nd District
DONATE

Jackie Gordon is an immigrant, veteran, and educator. She served 29 years in the Army, worked for three decades in New York Public Schools, and spent the past 12 years as a local elected official. Simply put, she has dedicated her entire career to making her community better than how she found it.

 Jackie is running for a seat currently held by a Republican in New York’s 2nd district on Long Island. Her election to Congress will ensure that her neighbors will have a representative who puts them first, and all of America will have a voice for generational responsibility and real change in the House.

Theresa Greenfield
Theresa GreenfieldU.S. Senate Iowa
DONATE

Theresa has a story that everyone can admire: working while pursuing her college education and raising her children as a single mother when she was left as a young widow, Theresa is the personification of a young striver. She is running for the U.S. Senate in Iowa because she knows first hand the challenges so many Americans face to make their way.

Theresa thinks and acts beyond conventional special interest politics, and she will bring a tough-minded, pragmatic problem-solver’s tenacity to the U.S. Senate. This seat is winnable, and Theresa is the one who can win it.

Lauren Underwood
Lauren UnderwoodCongresswoman, Illinois’ 14th District
DONATE

Congresswoman Underwood came to Congress in 2018 as an RN and senior advisor to former President Obama’s Department of Health and Human Services. She brought her first-hand knowledge of healthcare to Washington and worked to propose measures that preserve and expand access to healthcare for every family in Illinois’ 14th congressional district.

 Congresswoman Underwood is an unbossed and unbought voice in the U.S. House of Representatives, dedicated to leaving our communities and planet better than we found them.

Sara Gideon
Sara GideonSpeaker of the Maine House of Representatives Sara Gideon
DONATE

As Speaker of the Maine House, Sara Gideon has worked with governors and legislators from both parties to improve the lives of Maine’s citizens. Guided by progressive truths and practical, long-term problem solving, she puts the interests of the people above everything else.

The citizens of Maine deserve a senator who makes politics secondary to principle. Wink-and-nod politics, like those practiced by the incumbent senator Susan Collins, are eroding our democracy with each passing day. Sara Gideon has the experience, integrity and independent-mindedness we need in the U.S. Senate.

Doug Jones
Doug JonesSenator, Alabama

From bringing justice to the families of the four little girls killed in the Birmingham Church bombing, to his co-sponsorship of the Equality Act and his efforts to bring relief to people suffering from the impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic, Senator Doug Jones consistently puts our country and the people of Alabama first. That has been the hallmark of his public service.

Senator Jones leads from a deep set of personal values, with strong convictions and an ability to search for common ground among those who disagree with him. We need him to continue to fight for a more prosperous and more just society for all Alabamans and all Americans.

Jeanne Shaheen
Jeanne ShaheenSenator, New Hampshire

As a U.S. Senator, governor, teacher, and the daughter of a shoe factory manager and a church secretary, Senator Jeanne Shaheen’s roots in the Granite State run deep. A fierce advocate and a tireless voice for the people of New Hampshire, she is also the first woman in American history to be elected Governor and U.S. Senator. Her history-making career has been defined by effective advocacy for women, students, working people, and all strivers.

New Hampshire deserves a Senator who will stand up to Donald Trump, Mitch McConnell, and all the forces of division at times of crisis and otherwise. Senator Shaheen meets chaos with calm, and calamity with an even temper and pragmatic resolve. The people of New Hampshire and all of America need her reelection to the U.S. Senate.

Mike Espy
Mike EspyCandidate for Senate, Mississippi

Mike Espy has lived the American Dream. From humble beginnings, with hard work, mentorship and faith, he has made the most of every opportunity to advance and to serve. He understands his generational responsibility to move Mississippi forward, not back — to bring people together, not drive them apart. 

Mike’s career is one of extensive servant leadership. From being a Mississippi Delta attorney to Assistant Secretary of State, Assistant Attorney General, Congressman, and then Secretary of the U.S. Department of Agriculture, Mike has stood up for families, farmers and students. And now, during this time of unprecedented public health and economic crisis, Mike is the one who can meet this historic moment in the U.S. Senate to ensure that his people come through stronger on the other side. He knows what’s at stake, and his commitment to Mississippi families is unwavering.

Cal Cunningham
Cal CunninghamCandidate for Senate, North Carolina
DONATE

As a veteran of the Army and the North Carolina state legislature, Cal understands servant leadership. Throughout his career, he has built the diverse coalitions necessary to win and govern by respecting differences of view and building bridges, without compromising his values.

He knows not just what job he’s doing, but on whose behalf. He has led efforts to address school gun violence, ensure clean air, curb the opioid addiction crisis, and fund services for women and families affected by domestic violence and sexual assault. He will put the people of North Carolina first, and that makes him exactly the right person, at the right time, to represent North Carolinians in the U.S. Senate.

Steve Bullock
Steve BullockCandidate for Senate, Montana

Steve Bullock’s public career has been defined by progress through collaboration. He is known in Montana as someone who can bring different people and perspectives to the table to hammer out practical solutions — and he does it without compromising his values. 

Montana’s lands and way of life are being threatened by climate change and our current public health and economic crisis. Steve can deliver solutions to these problems because he’s done it before — whether representing labor unions, as state Attorney General, or as Governor, he has raised the minimum wage, saved the state’s rural hospitals, and expanded affordable health care to 90,000 Montanans. He belongs in the U.S. Senate.

John Hickenlooper
John HickenlooperCandidate for Senate, Colorado

John Hickenlooper can be counted on for fresh ideas, an insatiable appetite for solving problems, an eagerness to collaborate with others, and a clear understanding of whom he serves. His public career is defined by taking on special interests and delivering for all the people of Colorado, whether by passing pioneering anti-pollution climate change measures and landmark gun safety laws, or expanding Medicaid to nearly 400,000 Coloradans.

In the U.S. Senate, John will bring people together from every background to solve the multiple crises facing this nation. He will work with other Democrats and Republicans alike toward a better future for all Americans, and he will work for the benefit of the next generation — not just the next election. His servant leadership and generational responsibility is exactly what America needs.

Raphael Warnock
Raphael WarnockCandidate for Senate, Georgia

A son of Georgia who is called to spread justice and prosperity to all Georgians, Reverend Ralph Warnock is a man of deep faith, intellect and empathy. Growing up in Kayton Homes public housing in Savannah, Reverend Warnock’s mother and father taught him and his eleven siblings that they could do anything they put their minds to.

He brings his lessons and leadership to people’s daily lives at the pulpit, and he will do the same in the U.S. Senate. Reverend Warnock will continue looking out for struggling Georgia families, calling upon his experience in health care expansion and living wage advocacy to forge solutions to our problems.

Jon Ossoff
Jon OssoffCandidate for Senate, Georgia

An anti-corruption crusader and a living commitment to fairness, Jon Ossof is a next-generation leader who espouses a timeless responsibility to leave the world better than he found it. With a foundation in national security, foreign affairs and economic policy, Jon has never taken his eye off the well-being of the American people.

As a member of the U.S. Senate, Jon will bring the vision and the pragmatism necessary to deliver progress for the people of Georgia and America, ensuring that our government serves them — not private interests.
