Bernie Sanders has landed his first congressional endorsement and it’s from Arizona Representative Raul Grijalva. Grijalva is expected to formally announce his endorsement on Friday at a rally with Bernie Sanders is Tucson.
The LA Times describes Grijalva thus:
Grijalva, a liberal Democrat serving his seventh term representing a southern Arizona district including Tucson, is co-chairman of the Congressional Progressive Caucus, which Sanders — a self-described Democratic socialist — helped cofound at a House member in 1991.
Grijalva is also a member of the Congressional Hispanic Caucus and is expected to help Sanders’ outreach to Latino voters.
