Massachusetts and America need Joe Kennedy’s courage and leadership in the Senate to fight for the change we need”:The endorsement comes while the heated primary race is less than two weeks away, on September 1, and as many voters in the state have already cast their ballots through the newly passed mass vote-by-mail measure.While Kennedy, a descendant of one of America’s most influential political families, had enjoyed frontrunner status throughout most of the race’s duration, after minor campaign missteps in recent weeks and what some analysts have observed as an inability for Kennedy to distinguish his progressive viewpoints from those of Markey, the race has tightened significantly.One recent poll, conducted by SurveyUSA August 12–16, revealed Kennedy trailing Markey by two points, 44 percent to 42 percent, while RealClearPolitics polling average currently shows the candidates in a tie.In Pelosi’s endorsement announcement Thursday, she credited Kennedy with campaigning “across America” to help Democrats take control of the House in 2018, the year in which she also tapped the young congressman to deliver the Democrat response to President Trump’s first State of the Union address.Markey has also garnered his own collection of noteworthy endorsements throughout the race, including from his colleague Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA); the Boston Globe editorial board; and “Squad” member and cosponsor — alongside Markey — of the failed Green New Deal, Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY), an endorsement Markey has promoted heavily as he continues to highlight his priority of climate change.While Markey congratulated Kennedy for securing the support of the House’s highest-ranking member and praised Pelosi as “an effective leader who has shattered glass ceilings throughout her career,” others did not speak as highly of the decision.Ocasio-Cortez was quick to speak out against the move, pointing to Pelosi’s previous objections to Democrats challenging incumbents.
