Senator Michael Bennet, Chairman of the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee, issued the following statement endorsing Maine’s Shenna Bellows in her bid for the U.S. Senate:
“Shenna Bellows has spent her career fighting for the people of Maine and is the type of leader we need in the U.S. Senate.
“Shenna is an energetic leader who has fought for women’s rights, civil rights, individual freedoms, environmental protections, and an economy that works for everyone. She has the values and vision to always do what’s best for Mainers.”
Shenna Bellows is the daughter of a carpenter and former head of the American Civil Liberties Union of Maine. Bellows has built her campaign around middle class values, work ethic, and political courage. Bellows’ career has focused on fighting for all Mainers and building coalitions to pass groundbreaking privacy and civil rights laws. In the last quarter, Bellows outraised Susan Collins with more than 80% of her contributions coming from small dollar donors.
