Congresswoman Katie Porter

“I’m excited to support Dana Balter for Congress because she is a tireless champion for working families. Dana will be a great partner on key issues including ensuring that everyone has healthcare, getting big money out of our politics, and creating an economy that works for all. I know what it takes to flip a seat from red to blue and Dana Balter is the strongest candidate to win in November.”

DCCC Chairwoman Cheri Bustos

“Congressman John Katko’s embrace of Donald Trump only tells part of his story in Washington. His failure to hold drug manufacturers accountable for their role in the opioid crisis, his loyalty to special interests and his vote to give massive tax breaks to corporations at the expense of Central New York’s middle- and working-class families prove who Katko really is: a man changed. Dana Balter is running for Congress because she understands the challenges facing Central New Yorkers. In 2018, Dana gave Katko his toughest re-election fight yet and she’s ready to finish the job this November.”

“I’m excited to be supporting Dana Balter for Congress because she is a vigorous advocate for the people of her district and a champion for progressive solutions to the challenges that working families in our state face. She’s the partner we need in our delegation to fix the damage done by the Trump administration and move forward on key issues like ensuring that everyone has healthcare. Dana Balter has proven that she is the candidate who can flip this seat from red to blue and I’m proud to be supporting her.”

State Senator Rachel May

“I am proud to support Dana Balter in her campaign for Congress. Her campaign is about building community, engaging people in solutions, and making the strongest possible case for a government of, by, and for the people. She shows up, listens, and will fight for all of us to have good healthcare and a fair economy. Most importantly, I know she will always represent the people of the 24th district, not corporate interests–that’s why she has been able to build such a powerful grassroots movement. She ran an incredible campaign in 2018 and I am confident she will flip the district blue in November,” said Senator Rachel May.
