Vote Mama Endorses Debbie Mucarsel-Powell for U.S. Senate

Miami, FL – Today, Vote Mama joined dozens of organizations, leaders, and advocates in supporting Debbie Mucarsel-Powell as Florida’s next senator.

“The voices of mothers have long been underrepresented in Congress. In fact, there are 3x as many men named John in the U.S. Senate than mothers with minor children. Our nation’s policies have failed women and children for generations, and we need more moms to have a seat at the table.  As a proud mother, Latina, immigrant, and former representative in the U.S. House of Representatives, Debbie Mucarsel-Powell has proven that she has the dedication and tenacity to fight for the future our kids deserve. Vote Mama is proud to endorse her campaign to become Florida’s next Senator,” said Liuba Grechen Shirley, Vote Mama Founder and CEO. “Rick Scott has proven time and again that he is an extremist who puts special interests ahead of Florida’s families, supports gutting Social Security, and will champion a national abortion ban. Our rights are on the line, and we need leaders like Debbie Mucarsel-Powell in the U.S. Senate who will fight tooth and nail to protect our communities from gun violence, defend Social Security and Medicare, and safeguard our reproductive rights.”

“I am thrilled to have Vote Mama by my side in this race,” said Debbie Mucarsel-Powell. “As the mother of two daughters and a son, I strive to make the world a better place for my children and for families in Florida – and I am proud to have served as a member of Congress while taking care of my children. As I run for Senate today, my daughter still lives with me. Mothers in particular face barriers running for and serving in public office as caregivers of young children. As Senator, I’ll fight for gender equity and for better representation of mothers in politics and government, because at the end of the day, everything we do is for our children.”
