“I’m proud to have earned the support of such a diverse, forward-looking group of organizations from around Maine and across the country,” Bellows said. “On my 350-mile walk across the state, I met Mainers from all walks of life who feel their needs aren’t being met by the status quo.  I am determined to be a strong voice in Washington for working families, our seniors and our veterans to ensure a better future for our state and our country.”

“Shenna Bellows is committed to veterans, and she is committed to the people of Maine. She acknowledges that reform is needed in the VA’s procurement and medical billing services, and she supports reducing the VA disability claim backlog and wait time from the 273 days it currently takes for veterans to hear back. Shenna Bellows understands the challenges facing our veterans, and was quick to offer her support in addressing them. Because of her strong support for those who have served, The VETERANS’ VISION is proud to endorse her for the United States Senate,” said Benjamin Peoples, Political Editor at The VETERANS’ VISION.

“MPA members have worked hand in hand with Shenna on campaigns for marriage equality and voting rights, and we know she has our back on vital issues like the minimum wage and retirement security. That’s why we’ve endorsed her for the United States Senate,” said Jesse Graham, Executive Director of the Maine People’s Alliance.

“Seniors can count on Shenna Bellows to strengthen and expand Social Security,” said Richard Fiesta, Executive Director of the Alliance for Retired Americans. “She will ensure that both Medicare and Social Security continue to offer guaranteed benefits for current and future generations, in Maine and across the country.”

“Shenna Bellows is the kind of progressive leader Mainers want to represent them in Washington,” said PFAW Political Director Randy Borntrager. “She’ll fight for equality for all, against big money in political campaigns, and for full civil rights and voting rights for all Americans. PFAW is proud to endorse her candidacy for U.S. Senate.”
