Working to put progressives back on the path to leadership in Congress, Keith Ellison has focused not only on his own reelection but also on building grassroots electoral power across the country.
Ellison’s newly formed Voters First campaign is designed to boost turnout, run effective grassroots campaigns, partner with candidates up and down the ticket, focus on grassroots fundraising, and promote efforts to expand the vote.
One of Congress’ foremost progressive leaders and co-chair of the Congressional Progressive Caucus, Ellison has consistently fought for job creation, progressive tax rates, health care for all, workers’ rights, a clean environment, quality education, fair trade, strong consumer protections, protecting the right to vote, equality and justice for all, and greater investment in infrastructure.
