Axios: MoveOn Endorses Summer Lee and Andy Kim in First Congressional Endorsements

Read the Axios story here and 2024 election memo here

Washington, D.C.Today, MoveOn Political Action announced its endorsements of Representative Summer Lee (PA-12) for reelection and Representative Andy Kim for the New Jersey U.S. Senate seat. These are the group’s first primary endorsements in 2024. As The New York Times reported in January, MoveOn launched its $32+ million 2024 election program to mobilize millions of young surge voters to protect our freedoms and our democracy from Donald Trump and MAGA extremists. MoveOn is focusing on working to reelect President Biden and Vice President Harris, flipping more than two dozen U.S. House seats, and investing in Wisconsin, Pennsylvania, Arizona, Nevada, and Ohio Senate seats.

“MoveOn members enthusiastically voted to endorse Andy Kim and Summer Lee to keep with our commitment to stand with pro-democracy progressive champions who are challenging the establishment to push for people-first policies that protect our rights and our communities,” said MoveOn Political Action Executive Director Rahna Epting. “With an unprecedented flood of spending against progressive candidates and incumbents in this cycle, we need all hands on deck to ensure that our representation in Congress continues to champion working people. MoveOn members are committed to doing the work to ensure that both of these strong leaders win their primaries and win this November.”

  • In 2024, our democracy, abortion access, and fundamental freedoms are at stake like never before, and MoveOn is meeting the moment. To secure a Democratic trifecta, we are strategically addressing the enthusiasm gap among Democratic voters by narrowing in on young surge voters in battleground states and House districts. 
  • Within this surge voter population of more than 11 million across our target geographies, MoveOn is narrowing in on young voters and voters who need to be moved to turn out again for the Biden coalition. These surge voters are often motivated to vote through tailored appeals on issues that have the biggest impact on their day-to-day lives.  
  • MoveOn will continue to utilize voter contact tactics that have proven to be successful from previous cycles, including house parties, targeted digital ads, and direct voter contact through phone-banking, canvassing, and vote tripling, where committed voters remind friends and family to GOTV. 
  • Third-party presidential candidates are putting our democracy at risk, making it all the more challenging to beat Donald Trump and MAGA Republicans in 2024. The data shows that 2016 will surely repeat itself if these third-party spoilers do not step aside. This moment requires great urgency to solidify behind President Biden and show unified resolve to defeat MAGA and build on the progressive movement’s gains over the last few years.



MoveOn is celebrating 25 years of people-powered progress this year. For more than a generation, MoveOn has built independent political power and mobilized the left to elect Democrats and enact progressive change. MoveOn is a bulwark against the radical right, channeling our collective voices to drive progressive foreign policy, protect democracy, and advance justice for all.
