Katie Hobbs, candidate for governor of Arizona

“This is about a simple choice — between sanity and chaos, and whether we want to continue to live in a democracy where our Constitution and country come first. It’s about ensuring our children can grow up in a state where they don’t have to worry about putting food on the table or getting the health care they need.”

Rick Caruso, candidate for mayor of Los Angeles

“I want to be mayor of Los Angeles to help restore the Angeleno spirit that has been weakened by our failing systems. I want to make L.A. a city where every resident can have a great quality of life. This isn’t just another stepping stone where I bury the best interests of my constituents because I’m worried about securing the next political office. Being mayor of Los Angeles is the only job I want; Angelenos deserve a mayor who is 100 percent dedicated to advancing their interests not placating their political cronies. Our great city of Los Angeles deserves a government that isn’t corrupt and gives all residents the fair opportunity to succeed.”

Michael Bennet, U.S. Senator from Colorado

“The choice in this election is whether we will build on the progress we’ve made, or revert to the failed policies that made our economy less fair, our future less bright, and our democracy at risk. I am running for reelection to pursue a new American project that unites the country over the politics of the moment around real ambitions: Revitalize the middle class by further strengthening our supply chains, reviving American manufacturing, and leading a global transition to clean energy.”

“Whitmer has had her chance, she’s made a mess of the state, and is now asking for a four-year contract extension. On November 8, the voters of Michigan have a chance to give her a performance review and deny her application for another term. In the interest of common sense, I hope that’s what Michiganders will do.”

Maggie Hassan, U.S. Senator from New Hampshire

“I believe that you cannot care more about winning the argument than you do about solving the problem. Granite Staters do not care if a solution is a Democratic or Republican idea — they just care about getting results. And that is the example I follow, working across the aisle on Granite State priorities, fighting to lower costs for families and communities, and working to keep our country safe, secure and free.”

Betsy Johnson, candidate for governor of Oregon

“At my age, I may seem an improbable leader to shake-up a broken system and an imperfect agent of big, bold change. But that is exactly what I am and who I am. Even more, I am a fed-up daughter of Oregon who refuses to give up on the state I love without one hell of fight. Join me. Together, we can recapture our maverick, independent spirit, put the people back in charge and rescue our beautiful state. If it can happen anywhere, I know it can happen here in Oregon.”

“Whether it’s rising crime or rising costs, we need leaders who actually understand the problems we’re going through here in Pennsylvania, and who have the experience and the ideas to do something about it. I know we need to tackle crime because I live in a community with a serious crime issue. I know that costs are too high because I see it with my own eyes when I’m at Costco. I get these issues because I’ve lived these issues.”

Mandela Barnes, Candidate for U.S. Senate from Wisconsin

“As Wisconsin’s next senator, I’ll always side with working people over big corporations. I’ll safeguard the hard-earned benefits that seniors rely on. I’ll ensure the wealthy finally pay their fair share while working to lower costs for working families. I’ll fight to not only keep jobs in Wisconsin, but to create good-paying union jobs in every corner of the state. I’ll protect reproductive freedoms and bodily autonomy, so that health care decisions stay between a woman and her doctor.”
