As the Era of Trump dawns, the stakes in Justin’s campaign for Lt. Governor have risen much higher than we ever thought they could. Our 2017 elections will be the first opportunity, anywhere in the country, to show what kind of government people want in the aftermath of the 2016 elections.
Justin’s candidacy is gathering national attention. The highly respected publication The Root recently highlighted Justin, along with US Senator Corey Booker and Senator-Elect Kamala Harris, in an article entitled “Seven African-American Politicians Who Will Rise in the Era of Trump”.
The article notes that thus far, Justin is the only African American Democrat running statewide anywhere in the country in 2017 and points to his wide network of supporters across the state.
