WASHINGTON, D.C. — NextGen PAC unveiled its first round of endorsements for progressive candidates across key battleground states, spotlighting Keir Bradford-Grey as a notable choice for Pennsylvania Attorney General. This endorsement aligns with NextGen PAC’s mission to mobilize the youth vote in support of Democratic contenders, aiming to sustain and amplify the momentum of progressive victories witnessed in recent election cycles.

Cristina Tzinzún Ramirez, President and Executive Director of NextGen PAC, emphasized the pivotal role young voters have played in shaping the political landscape, crediting their unprecedented turnout for securing significant progressive achievements. With the specter of MAGA Republican agendas looming, Ramirez articulated the organization’s commitment to endorsing candidates who champion the values and issues most critical to the younger electorate. This strategy emphasizes the importance of every race in the collective pursuit of a more equitable and just democracy.

The 2020 elections marked a watershed moment, with NextGen PAC’s efforts contributing to the highest youth voter participation in history.

Bradford-Grey’s potential election as Pennsylvania’s first Black attorney general—and the first with a primary background in public defense—signals a transformative shift in the state’s legal landscape.

With a platform centered on restoring security and safety for working families, Bradford-Grey’s campaign resonates with young voters seeking leaders who prioritize social justice and equity. Her emphasis on consumer protection and advocacy for marginalized communities aligns with the progressive values championed by NextGen PAC, making her candidacy a beacon for those advocating for systemic change.

As one of five Democrats vying for the party’s nomination in the primary election scheduled for April 23, 2024, Bradford-Grey’s campaign benefits from the national spotlight provided by NextGen PAC’s endorsement. This support not only amplifies her message but also elevates the discourse around the role of the attorney general in championing the rights and well-being of all citizens.
