About: Jamie Raskin is a three-term Democratic State Senator in Maryland, the Senate Majority Whip, and a dynamic leader of the progressive forces in Annapolis who has been at the center of the breakthrough policy changes Maryland has experienced over the last decade.
Jamie will not only be a strong progressive voice in Congress; he will be a national leader in helping to mobilize a progressive agenda in Washington, D.C.
Why he endorsed Voters First:
Jamie is committed to running a Voters First campaign, which puts the focus on increasing voter turnout and real grassroots organizing. His campaign has been fueled by low-dollar fundraising from progressives across the country and through organizing over 80 house parties, BBQs, picnics and cocktail parties.
How he is running a Voters First campaign:
Jaime's campaign has a strong base of grassroots volunteers who are focused on electing another progressive to Congress. His army of volunteers has undergone extensive training in how to talk to voters which has resulted in over 22,000 doors knocked and more than 34,000 phone calls in just the first few months.
Jamie has also raised more than $1 million for his campaign, with more than 6,000 individual contributions--more than any non-incumbent in the country. What's even more impressive, over 75% of his donations are for $100 or less, which shows he is committed to working Americans, not the billionaires.
