Grossman is Only DC Candidate Endorsed by National Group

Washington, DC – Run for Something (RFS), the groundbreaking organization that recruits and supports the next generation of progressive leadership, endorsed Jordan Grossman today, adding him to an influential class of 141 young leaders across the country who are rising to the challenge of running for office.

“The stakes have never been higher or more clear. COVID-19 has shown us we need new solutions to both old problems and to emerging challenges,” says RFS co-founder Ross Morales Rocketto. “These are candidates who are going to run grassroots, community-led campaigns. We are at a critical time in history and the momentum these candidates generate will have a lasting impact for years to come.”

“I’m thrilled to have the support of Run For Something, which has truly transformed who can run and win in local elections,” said Jordan Grossman. “I’m honored to be in a class with so many talented young public servants. After 30 years of corrupt Jack Evans and his political machine, Ward 2 is ready for a clean break and a new generation of progressive leadership.”

The endorsement process includes an extensive review with a background check, staff review and insight from local experts. Run for Something joins over twenty local groups and progressive leaders who have endorsed Jordan.

Amanda Litman and Ross Morales Rocketto launched RFS on Donald Trump’s inauguration date after reflecting on what our country needed upon Hillary Clinton’s staggering defeat.  With more than 1000 endorsed candidates, RFS is investing in a future where new leaders will take on the new challenges of our time.

Jordan Grossman is a fifth generation DC resident and former Obama Administration, Capitol Hill, DC federal district court, and DC Medicaid official. He’s running to represent Ward 2 on the DC Council to end corruption, fight for DC statehood and equity for our schools, and make it easier for residents to afford a home, find high-quality child care, walk, bike, or take public transit, and pay off student loan debt.
