Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders has endorsed former NAACP chairman Ben Jealous for Maryland governor.

Sanders endorsed Jealous at an event in Silver Spring on Thursday, July 13.

Jealous, who is seeking the Democratic nomination, was the Maryland co-chairman of the senator’s unsuccessful campaign for the Democratic nomination for president against Hillary Clinton last year.

Sanders says Jealous has had a lifetime of courageous activism and can speak to every community. He says Jealous has proposed a progressive agenda that can bring together working people across the political spectrum and create change.

Sanders also says the most important thing that can be done to battle Republican President Donald Trump’s agenda is to elect strong progressive leaders at every level of government.
