The Fresno County Democratic Central Committee has not endorsed any candidate in this race.
There’s a joke my son Cory likes to tell about how behind every accomplished child is an astonished parent. And I can truly say that I am indeed astonished, thrilled, and exceedingly proud of Cory today.
He just wrapped up his first big campaign event in Newark, and I can’t stop smiling.
I’ve watched Cory dedicate his entire life to public service — fighting for his community, fighting for his state, and fighting alongside Americans across the country who want better lives for themselves and their families.
And I know that he will be the kind of president who won’t run away from tough problems. Cory’s leadership will bring our country together in the face of difficult challenges, and his character will make us all proud — of him and our country.
But he and I both know that he can’t make change alone.Cory’s team tells me that the most important thing people can do to help right now is make a donation to build this campaign and ensure his spot in the national debate —so will you chip in to my son’s campaign today?
I’ve had the honor of witnessing and participating in many historic moments in my life — from attending Fisk University during the civil rights era with Diane Nash and John Lewis to participating in sit-ins protesting segregation in Charlottesville and Nashville in the 1960s and helping plan the March on Washington in 1963 where I heard Dr. King share his dream with the world.
