Senator and former presidential candidate Elizabeth Warren, D-Massachusetts, has endorsed Kiani Gardner in Lower Alabama Democratic Congressional runoff election.
“Kiani Gardner will bring a data-driven approach to legislation to make our government work for everyone,” Warren said in a release. “She is dedicated to meaningful change.”
Gardner, a college biology professor, thanked Warren and praised her presidential campaign for its “in-depth policy proposals.”
“As a congressional candidate who is focused on putting forward legislation supported by data rather than rooted in ideology, I am honored by Senator Warren’s endorsement,” Gardner said.
Warren suspended her campaign on March 5th.
Gardner takes on James Averhart in the July 14 run off. Gardner captured 44-percent of the votes in the March primary, ahead of Averhart’s 40-percent.
