FORMER INDIANA CONGRESSWOMAN JILL LONG THOMPSON ENDORSES MEL HALL
SOUTH BEND, Ind. – Second District Democratic Congressional Candidate Mel Hall announced that former Congresswoman and Under Secretary of Agriculture for Rural Development Jill Long Thompson has endorsed his campaign for Congress in an op-ed she published today.
“Jill Long Thompson proudly represented Hoosiers in Washington. She knows what it takes to grow jobs and fight for working families,” said Hall. “I am honored to receive Jill’s endorsement, and I look forward to continuing her legacy of accountable leadership in Congress.”
“Mel will be a champion for working families in the 2nd District,” said Thompson. “Mel will work tirelessly in Congress to find common-sense solutions to the problems we face. I am honored to endorse Mel to represent Indiana’s Second Congressional District.”
Thompson is one of only two Democratic women in Indiana to win a seat in Congress. As a three-term member of the U.S. House of Representatives, Thompson earned a reputation as both a consensus builder and a fighter for working families, protecting investments in education, Medicare, and Social Security.
This endorsement comes on the heels of Hall’s first in-district TV ad and his endorsement by the United Steelworkers.
