I know with his support, and the support of many other impactful individuals, organizations, and unions, we will win this race.”

Kennedy, State Senator Erika Geiss, Congressman Mike Thompson, City Councilperson at Large Coleman Young II, former Grosse Pointe Park City Councilwoman Darci McConnell, Congressman Seth Moulton, and a host of other national, statewide and local voices.
