The Working Families Party on Thursday endorsed Sen. Ed Markey for re-election and Holyoke Mayor Alex Morse for Congress, calling the two Democrats the \u0022two clear progressive choices\u0022 in their respective contests in the upcoming September 1 primary.\u0026nbsp;\u0022Sen. Markey and Alex Morse are the clear progressive choices in this race,\u0022 said WFP national director Maurice Mitchell said in a statement. \u0022They\u0026#039;re leaders on a Green New Deal, Medicare for All, they have the political will to shift the balance of power in Washington, and they\u0026#039;re committed to building a Massachusetts that works for the many, not the few.\u0022Yay! @WorkingFamilies⁩ going in for ⁦@EdMarkey⁩ and ⁦@AlexBMorse⁩. Let’s go! https://t.co/DxZKxck3Nb— Rebecca Katz (@RebeccaKKatz) August 6, 2020Markey, facing a challenge from Rep. Joe Kennedy III (D-Mass.), earned the group\u0026#039;s endorsement for his longtime advocacy of progressive causes and his work to advance those goals through legislation in the Senate, including the Green New Deal and Medicare for All.\u0026nbsp;In a statement welcoming the endorsement, Markey noted his record and tied it to the priorities of WFP.\u0026nbsp;\u0022I\u0026#039;m grateful they\u0026#039;ve chosen to endorse me in this race,\u0022 said Markey. \u0022Throughout my career, I have worked to challenge the wealthy and powerful, from big oil to the NRA, and fight for the needs of working families. I\u0026#039;m thrilled that working families across the country support my campaign to carry on that fight.\u0022Morse, who is running in Massachusetts\u0026#039; 1st District against longtime incumbent Rep. Richard Neal (D-Mass.), said that \u0022as someone who comes from a working family in a working class town, I am proud to be a Working Families Democrat.\u0022\u0022The Working Families Party has a track record of helping grassroots campaigns like ours unseat corporate-backed incumbents like Neal, and I\u0026#039;m excited to have their support,\u0022 said Morse. \u0022I\u0026#039;m ready to go to Washington to join the WFP to fight for policies that help people, not corporations and wealthy donors.\u0022The endorsements come in the wake of progressive wins in Tuesday\u0026#039;s primaries. In Missouri, Cori Bush charged to an upset victory over 10-term incumbent Rep. Lacy Clay (D-Mo.); in Michigan, progressive Rep. Rashida Tlaib (D-Mich.) steamrolled a challenge from Detroit\u0026nbsp;City Council President Brenda Jones.\u0026nbsp;\u0022The progressive cavalry is headed to Massachusetts,\u0022 tweeted CNN reporter Greg Krieg.
