Jeremy Bird’s Statement on Ro Khanna Endorsement by San Jose Mercury News
CHICAGO -- Jeremy Bird, a founding partner of 270 Strategies and General Consultant to Ro Khanna's campaign in California's 17th congressional district issued the following statement in response to the candidate's endorsement by the San Jose Mercury News today:
"Today's endorsement by the San Jose Mercury News is a tremendous vote of confidence for Ro Khanna and his bold vision for California's critical 17th congressional district. Taken together with Ro's endorsement earlier this week by the San Francisco Chronicle, it's clear his fresh ideas for growing our economy, promoting entrepreneurship and women in the workplace, bringing technology into the classroom, and reforming a broken Congress have struck a chord across the Bay Area.
"With this momentum around Ro's forward-looking approach -- and the groundbreaking grassroots campaign he has built over the past year -- we're confident voters will agree we need new leadership in Washington. In the past 11 months alone, our campaign has hosted 171 meet and greets with grassroots supporters, made 130,279 calls, and knocked on 72,327 doors -- with Ro himself hitting more than 3,700 doors.
"Ro represents what we believe should be the future of politics in America -- and we're proud to be part of his campaign."
