A large part of a candidate's time is spent talking with voters, engaging constituents, and learning about issues while also communicating your own message. Related to that, endorsements can play a large role in those conversations. Pursuing endorsements isn't just for the sake of money or lip service -- the actual process of filling out questionnaires, sitting down face to face, and talking is a huge part of the learning, sharing, and collaborating that makes a candidate effective. I'm proud to have many endorsements from a wide variety of organizations. Their belief that I am the candidate who will work hard, listen, and do my best to serve, means a lot to me.
