Canton Democrat lands Indivisible Project endorsement
Thursday, June 7, 2018 - 11:45 am

Canton Democrat Tedra has announced that the Indivisible Project, the national affiliate of Indivisible, has endorsed her campaign for Congress.

She was among eight candidates endorsed by the group in this round and is one of only 23 endorsed candidates nationwide, three of whom are running in New York.

Cobb is competing against four other Democrats in the June 26 Democratic primary election. The winner will be on the Democratic ballot line to face incumbent Republican Rep. Elise Stefanik in the fall.

The Indivisible endorsement comes on the heels of Cobb releasing her first campaign ad, as well as receiving endorsements from other progressive groups, a statement from her campaign said.

“I am proud to have been able to earn the support of Indivisible’s national chapter and I thank those locally who voted for me to receive this,” Cobb said in the statement.

“The Indivisible movement was a leading force in resisting the American Health Care Act, which would have taken health care away from 64,400 people in this district, as well as the entire destructive agenda Congress is pursuing. They, along with their many local affiliates, will be instrumental in taking back the House in November. I cannot say enough what an honor it is to receive this major endorsement,” Cobb said.

Indivisible, a Washington, DC-based political action organization, describes itself on its web site, www.indivisible.org, as one whose “mission is to fuel a progressive grassroots network of local groups to resist the Trump Agenda.”
