This morning, Congressman John Yarmuth endorsed Morgan McGarvey in his campaign to represent Louisville in Congress. With his upcoming retirement and this term as his last, Yarmuth is making it clear that he is endorsing Morgan so that Louisville continues to have a strong, responsive, effective leader in Washington, DC.

“I’m pleased to be endorsing Morgan McGarvey as a true champion of progressive values and one of the most effective leaders our Kentucky state legislature has ever seen,” said Congressman Yarmuth. “Morgan has shown an ability to build and work in the diverse coalitions necessary to create meaningful change and get the job done for our community and country. That’s exactly what we need more of in Washington.”

“It’s an honor to be endorsed by Congressman Yarmuth,” said Morgan. “We owe him a debt of gratitude for his service, but I especially want to highlight his work on the legislation that helped our families through this pandemic. It’s the kind of responsive, results-oriented leadership that I want to continue in Congress. I’m running as a working dad of three young kids. I get the urgent need for universal pre-K, paid family leave and more affordable health care. And I’m running to use my experience delivering real results in Frankfort — even up against non-stop GOP extremism — to do the same in Washington.”
