Hillary Clinton Garners Big Endorsements in Advance of the June 7 Primaries

A week before the high-stakes primaries in California and New Jersey, Hillary Clinton has earned some noteworthy endorsements.

In early January, Hillary Clinton, accompanied by Dr. Judy Chu (D-California), launched an outreach to Americans of Asian and Pacific Island ancestry.  Today, the Congressional Asian Pacific American Caucus (CAPAC), with Dr. Chu at the helm, will be endorsing Hillary Clinton for president.

Reps. Judy Chu, who represents the Pasadena area, and Doris Matsui, whose district encompasses metropolitan Sacramento, are scheduled to make the announcement Tuesday morning in San Gabriel.

In attendance will be Asian and Pacific Islander elected officials from throughout California who are endorsing Clinton. Earlier this year, all of California’s Congressional representatives of Asian descent announced they are supporting her.

In an open letter on his website to California Democrats and Independents today, Governor Jerry Brown also endorsed Hillary.

An Open Letter to California Democrats and Independents

On Tuesday, June 7, I have decided to cast my vote for Hillary Clinton because I believe this is the only path forward to win the presidency and stop the dangerous candidacy of Donald Trump.

I have closely watched the primaries and am deeply impressed with how well Bernie Sanders has done. He has driven home the message that the top one percent has unfairly captured way too much of America’s wealth, leaving the majority of people far behind. In 1992, I attempted a similar campaign.

For her part, Hillary Clinton has convincingly made the case that she knows how to get things done and has the tenacity and skill to advance the Democratic agenda. Voters have responded by giving her approximately 3 million more votes – and hundreds more delegates – than Sanders. If Clinton were to win only 10 percent of the remaining delegates – wildly improbable – she would still exceed the number needed for the nomination. In other words, Clinton’s lead is insurmountable and Democrats have shown – by millions of votes – that they want her as their nominee.

The stakes couldn’t be higher. Our country faces an existential threat from climate change and the spread of nuclear weapons. A new cold war is on the horizon. This is no time for Democrats to keep fighting each other. The general election has already begun. Hillary Clinton, with her long experience, especially as Secretary of State, has a firm grasp of the issues and will be prepared to lead our country on day one.

Next January, I want to be sure that it is Hillary Clinton who takes the oath of office, not Donald Trump

The National Resources Defense Council, (NRDC), which has never endorsed a presidential candidate, has also endorsed Hillary.  Both New Jersey and California have beautiful coastlines threatened by potentially catastrophic climate change. This first-ever endorsement should have an impact across the nation because we are all at risk in a variety of ways, and as Hillary says in her statement, “…there is no Planet B.”

In 160 days, voters will face a choice between two major party nominees in the 2016 U.S. presidential contest: Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump.

Only one of those candidates wants to build a future powered by a clean energy economy. Only one of those candidates will make America a leader in the global fight against climate change. And only one of those candidates will work to ensure that every child and every family in America has clean water to drink, clean air to breathe, and a safe and healthy place to live.

That candidate is Hillary Clinton, and that’s why — for the first time — the NRDC Action Fund is stepping up now to endorse Secretary Clinton for President of the United States.

Statements

Hillary Clinton Statement on the Endorsement of the NRDC Action Fund

Today, following the endorsement of the NRDC Action Fund–the first time in their history they have endorsed a Presidential candidate–Hillary Clinton issued the following statement:

“I am honored to have earned the first-ever presidential endorsement of the NRDC Action Fund.

“Climate change is real, it is being driven by human activity, and it is happening right now. We can’t wait for climate deniers and defeatists to get on board–we need to take immediate action to build on the progress President Obama has made in fighting this unprecedented global threat. We need to use every tool we have to make America the clean energy superpower of the 21st century and to make sure no one is left out or left behind in the clean energy economy, from communities struggling with the legacy of environmental racism to the coalfield communities that kept America’s lights on for generations.

“That’s why I have a comprehensive plan to combat climate change with bold, national goals to expand clean energy, boost energy efficiency, and slash oil consumption. I will fight alongside the NRDC Action Fund for environmental and climate justice and invest in building a bright future for coalfield communities. And together, we can get half of our electricity from clean sources within 10 years, create millions of good-paying jobs, protect our communities from the dangerous climate impacts that we’re already seeing, and ensure America is leading the world in the fight against climate change.

“The stakes for our children’s health and the future of our planet have never been higher. The presumptive Republican nominee has called climate change a Chinese hoax and called for scrapping the landmark Paris climate agreement. He has pledged to open up millions of acres of pristine public lands and waters to fossil fuel production at a time when America’s public lands are under unprecedented pressures. We need to be accelerating the transition to a clean energy future, not letting a climate denier doom our children to a future beyond their capacity to repair.

“It has never been more critical that we come together to face the shared challenge of climate change–because there is no Planet B.”

    Yay Jerry Brown! Love, love, love him and have been proud and happy to vote for him his last 2 terms as governor. I would love to see him in a Clinton administration. Honestly, if he were younger, he’d be a great vp.
