Senator Elizabeth Warren’s campaign released a list of over 100 leaders in the Latino community who are endorsing her for President of the United States. This comes after Former Housing and Development Secretary Julián Castro shared his endorsement on January 7 and joined Warren on the campaign trail after he dropped out. It’s also three weeks before the first primary caucus in Iowa.
“I am grateful for the support of this list of Latina, Latino and Latinx leaders who have made incomparable gains for their communities and continue to trailblaze for the good of everyone,” Warren said in a press release.
The list includes activists, lawmakers, educators, media personalities, elected officials and others from various states—though it appears no one on the list is based in Puerto Rico, where primaries will take place on March 29.
Here’s what some had to say about why they’re endorsing Warren:
Congrats @JayesGreenJ and @TeamWarren for elevating the voices of Latinx people in this primary race. Big gets from many Latinx people I admire @castrocountry @dreamelder @JuanSaaa @RicardoNArroyo @DaniGUrbina – among others !

Today, I am proud to give my personal endorsement to Sen. Elizabeth Warren for President.
She has been an unapologetic advocate for families like my own. A family that came to America for a fighting chance and a path to opportunities. (1/3) #JuntosConWarren✊?#TeamWarren? pic.twitter.com/REmn4Q2Oka

¡¡Con todo!!! I won't call her Tia Liz tho because she seems like she'd be that cool Tia that lets you call her by her first name and treat her with "tu" or "vos" instead of "usted". ¡¡So excited!! #juntosconwarren https://t.co/NBIA4pxtCT

Excited to show my support for @ewarren. Abuelita & amá’s names are not on this list, but they’re my motivation & the reason I fight for equity. All 3 of us are enthusiastically supporting la señora Warren (as abuelita calls her). #JuntosconWarren #JuntxsConWarren #LGBTQforWarren https://t.co/ZkERJ3N5BT
