Miami, FL—Today, the New Democrat Coalition PAC (NewDemPAC) endorsed former Congressman Joe Garcia for Florida’s 26th Congressional District.
"Congress needs common sense leaders who believe in the power of American ingenuity and are committed to pursuing policies that will unleash economic growth, keep our economy competitive, and our national secure,” said Congressman Derek Kilmer (D-WA), Chairman of NewDemPAC. “Electing Joe Garcia and other NewDemPAC-endorsed candidates will help get Congress back on track."
The New Democrat Coalition is a key group of 52 pro-growth, innovation focused Members of Congress who are known as effective, pragmatic leaders. Formed by Members of the Coalition, the NewDemPAC helps re-elect House NewDems and elect new, like-minded leaders who can help develop a positive policy agenda and message.
“It is an honor to receive the endorsement of NewDemPAC,” said Joe Garcia, candidate for Florida’s 26th District. “The biggest challenge facing South Floridians is still the economy, which is why I look forward to working alongside the NewDems to advance innovative solutions that create jobs, raise wages and expand the middle class. Investing in infrastructure, renewable energy and our workforce is the new Democratic way.”
In Congress Garcia secured millions for job training right here in South Florida and helped small businesses in their transition to Obamacare. Garcia also secured $200 million for infrastructures projects to restore the Everglades, and millions more for water quality and transportation projects.
