Progressive youth vote organization endorses Democratic incumbent Senator in Virginia
Richmond, VA – Today, NextGen PAC endorsed United States Senator Tim Kaine for re-election. In 2024, NextGen PAC will leverage its grassroots organizing infrastructure in Virginia by mobilizing thousands of young voters to defeat his Republican challenger.
NextGen PAC’s endorsement of Senator Kaine is due to his proven commitment to climate action, protecting abortion access and care, and fighting for economic equity. As extremist Republicans promise to rollback basic rights in Virginia, young voters know that Senator Kaine is a leader who will truly represent and fight for their vision for the future. Re-electing Senator Kaine is a key part of ensuring Virginia remains just, equitable, and democratic for the future.
“NextGen PAC is proud to endorse Democratic incumbent Senator Tim Kaine for re-election in 2024,” NextGen PAC President and Executive Director Cristina Tzintzún Ramirez said. “As the largest, most diverse generation in American history, we are committed to creating a future that reflects us, represents us, and respects us, and Virginia is a critical state in our fight for this future. Senator Kaine is a proven advocate for our rights and believes in our movement for change. In 2022, young Virginians turned out for progressives statewide, and we will continue mobilizing to protect the progress we have made and build a stronger future.”
To help keep this Senate seat blue, NextGen PAC will engage 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 2024. 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, NextGen reached one in every nine voters under 35 who cast a ballot.
