Senator Alessandra Biaggi Launches
Campaign for U.S. Congress in NY-3
NY State Senator Alessandra Biaggi
New York State Senator Alessandra Biaggi announced her candidacy for U.S. Congress in New York’s third congressional district (NY-3). Senator Biaggi is an unrelenting leader in the fight to make government work for the people, and she is running to ensure hard working families along the Sound shore have their voices, needs, and vision heard in Washington.
“Our country doesn’t just need more Democrats in Washington, we need bolder ones. I am running for Congress in NY-3 to bring progressive and honest leadership to the frontlines of our country’s most important fights. Hard working families of Westchester, Long Island, the Bronx, and Queens deserve an experienced, strong, and fearless leader in Washington. And that’s exactly what they can expect from me. As the Representative of the Sound, I will work to combat climate change and protect our shorelines, expand voting rights, enact universal pre-K to support working parents, provide opportunity and relief for the middle class, protect abortion rights, ensure public safety and a fair criminal legal system, and deliver affordable healthcare for all. Together, we delivered progressive change on these issues in Albany, and it is time to bring our energy and resolve to Washington,” said Senator Alessandra Biaggi.
Senator Biaggi is a two-term Democratic State Senator and a proven winner. In 2018, she defeated the powerful head of the IDC to put Democrats back in control of New York’s State Senate. Since taking office, Senator Biaggi has been working to create a more equitable New York, delivering wins for working families and paving the way for progressive Democrats to run for office and win. And she’s ready to bring her fighting spirit to Washington on behalf of the people of NY-3.
The newly drawn NY-3 district encompasses parts of Senator Biaggi’s current state senate district in the Bronx and southern Westchester, and spans along the Sound from northern Westchester to Suffolk County. She is a fourth-generation resident of the district.
Congressman Jamaal Bowman (NY-16) of the Bronx and Westchester endorsed New York State Senator Alessandra Biaggi for U.S. Congress in New York’s third congressional district (NY-3). Congressman Bowman’s endorsement comes one day after Senator Biaggi launched her congressional campaign.
“I am proud to endorse Senator Biaggi in her run for Congress,” said Congressman Jamaal Bowman. “Senator Biaggi leads with relentless compassion. She’s smart, bold, principled, hard-working, and most importantly, loves people. She is a champion for women’s rights and the working class, and her countless victories in the State Senate show that she truly understands the urgency of this moment. As a member of Congress, I am working hard to build a nation that works for everyone, not just the privileged class, and I have full confidence Senator Biaggi, with her tireless advocacy, is looking to do the same. I look forward to Senator Biaggi joining me in DC so together we can continue to fight for working New Yorkers and for a society that embodies the ideals of justice, equality, and solidarity.”
“I am thrilled and incredibly grateful to receive Congressman Jamaal Bowman’s endorsement. I have the privilege of serving several communities in tandem with the Congressman, and I have learned so much from his leadership. Congressman Bowman is a champion for working families. He possesses an admirable commitment to strengthening New York’s public education and ensuring teachers and students have the resources they need, regardless of zip code. It is an honor to be Congressman Bowman’s friend and colleague, and I look forward to taking our partnership to the halls of Congress,” said Senator Alessandra Biaggi.
