Progressive youth vote organization endorses Democratic candidate in New Hampshire
Concord, NH — Today, NextGen PAC endorsed incumbent Maggie Hassan for Senate. Ahead of the election this November, NextGen PAC will leverage its grassroots organizing infrastructure in New Hampshire by mobilizing hundreds of young voters to defeat her Republican challenger, who has yet to be determined.
NextGen PAC’s endorsement of Senator Hassan is due to her commitment to protecting abortion rights and LGBTQIA+ rights, as well as advocating for climate justice. Throughout Hassan’s time in office she has been a fierce advocate for Granite Staters’ civil liberties and young voters know that she is a leader who will truly represent and reflect their vision for the future. An experienced lawmaker, re-electing Hassan is the way forward for a more just and equitable New Hampshire.
“Senator Hassan has a proven progressive record and we are proud to put NextGen PAC’s support behind her as she fights tirelessly for a better future for younger generations,” NextGen PAC President and Executive Director Cristina Tzintzún Ramirez said. “Young voters propelled Hassan to victory in 2016 when she won by a small margin, and we’re ready to do it again. By re-electing Maggie Hassan and defeating far-right MAGA Republicans, we are determined to use our power to build a New Hampshire that is truly representative of our values. Our generation has the power to determine the future of New Hampshire – and we’re ready to raise our voices to continue making history.”
To keep New Hampshire blue, NextGen PAC will invest in organizers in communities and on campuses across the state to ensure young people are ready to turn out for Democrats up and down the ballot. In 2020, NextGen contributed to the highest youth voter turnout in history, reaching more than 10.5 million people across nearly a dozen states and motivating nearly 4.7 million to cast ballots in the November election. Across the country in 2020, NextGen reached one in every nine voters under 35 who cast a ballot.
