Kirsten Gillibrand Endorses Qasim Rashid


Gillibrand says Rashid “will fight so no Virginian is left behind”

STAFFORD, VA – Today Senator Kirsten Gillibrand (D-NY), longtime public servant and former presidential candidate, endorsed Qasim Rashid’s campaign for Congress in Virginia’s First Congressional District.

“Qasim Rashid is a compassionate leader who I am proud to endorse for Congress in VA-01,” said Gillibrand. “Qasim‘s work has always been centered around lifting up marginalized communities for years, from his work combatting domestic and sexual violence against women to being an advocate for better accessible education for children experiencing poverty. Qasim is a champion for working families in Congress and he will fight so no Virginian is left behind.”

“I’m honored by this endorsement,” said Rashid. “As a lawyer taking on pro bono cases, as an elected official, and as a presidential candidate, Senator Gillibrand has been an incredible fighter on behalf of women and children and working families. She is bold and fearless and she makes America better.”
