Hopkinton Democratic Town Committee Endorses Langevin for Congress

The Hopkinton Democratic Town Committee endorsed Jim Langevin Thursday night in his reelection bid to represent the Second District in the United States Congress.
“It was wonderful to have Jim at our meeting so we could offer our full support of his campaign for reelection. Jim shares our priorities, as well as our hopes for a stronger Rhode Island, a more equal nation, and a more peaceful world,” said Chairwoman Gloria Rhodes. “We’re proud to have him by our side as we all work together for the good of our state.”
Langevin started his career in public service in 1986 when he was elected to the state’s Constitutional Convention. He later served as a State Representative and was then elected Secretary of State in 1994. Langevin was elected to the United States Congress in 2000, and currently serves as a senior member of both the House Armed Services and Homeland Security Committees.
“I am honored and humbled to add the endorsement of the Hopkinton Democratic Town Committee to the list of organizations supporting my campaign for reelection,” said Langevin. “I am as focused and enthusiastic as ever about serving the people of Rhode Island, and it means so much to have people like Chairwoman Rhodes and the Hopkinton committee members supporting me in my efforts.”
In the 2016 election, Langevin has already received endorsements from the Rhode Island Democratic Party State Committee; the Rhode Island Association of Democratic City and Town Chairs; Democratic Town Committees in Burrillville, East Greenwich, Exeter, Johnston, North Kingstown, Providence, and Warwick; and from the AFL-CIO, AFSCME, and the Rhode Island Building and Construction Trades Council.
