Thrilled to have President Obama's endorsement.

I just learned that President Obama has endorsed our campaign!

"I'm proud to endorse Peter DeFazio for Congress. He will work to get the virus under control, rebuild the economy and the middle class, and protect Americans' health care and preexisting conditions protections from Republican assault. He is dedicated to shoring up and strengthening our democracy, a project that's going to take time and require all of us — but it begins by electing Democrats right now. So give Congressman DeFazio your vote — and vote by mail as early as you can."

For eight years, President Obama and I worked side by side to deliver results for working families, and I'm incredibly proud of what we accomplished.

But there's still more to do. Chip in now to keep up the progressive fight in Congress!

Together, we reined in the reckless Wall Street gamblers whose greed brought our economy to its knees.

We passed the Affordable Care Act, allowing millions of uninsured Americans access to quality, affordable health care for themselves and their families and protecting care for millions of people with preexisting conditions.

We brought thousands of our troops home from the Bush administration's foolish and unjust wars.

And we stood up to the Republican extremists who were willing to grind our government to a halt rather than do the job working people elected us to do.

I'm fighting to build on our shared successes for the American people including expanding affordable health care, reducing the costs of prescription drugs, and getting the economy back on track after Trump failed at responding to the COVID-19 crisis.

To have President Obama's support in this moment – during the most important election of our lives and with Donald Trump's handpicked candidate making headway in our race – means so much to me. I'm honored to have his support.

Stand with President Obama and the thousands of others who've joined our movement! Contribute now to fuel our fight!

Peter DeFazio's common-sense proposals aim to create good-paying jobs, expand access to affordable health care and develop options outside of the for-profit marketplace, restore economic and educational opportunities, hold government accountable and tip the scales of inequality back in favor of hard-working Oregonians.
