PHOENIX – Congressional candidate Andrei Cherny today earned the support of a leader who knows a thing or two about fighting -- and getting real results -- for middle class families: President Bill Clinton.
President Clinton said Cherny, who served as a senior aide in the Clinton White House, has the potential to make an important difference for Arizona and the country.
“In Congress, Andrei will work to improve the quality of our public schools, create good new jobs, and defend Social Security and Medicare,” said President Clinton. “I know Andrei will get real results for middle class families because he’s already done it. And, I’m confident he’ll bring to Congress exactly what we need in Washington: a willingness to think new and think big."
Cherny said that he is grateful to have President Clinton's support, especially because he learned so much working for him.
"President Clinton taught me that when it comes to fighting on behalf of families, results matter," said Cherny. "I'm incredibly proud to have been a part of President Clinton's team to balance the budget, create jobs, and pass the greatest expansion of children's health care in American history. I hope to take the focus on getting real results that I learned from President Clinton to work in Congress."
President Clinton's announcement continues to build momentum for Cherny, who finished the latest fundraising quarter with more cash-on-hand than his two primary opponents combined. Prominent Arizona Democrats such as former Attorney General Terry Goddard and business leader Jim Pederson have endorsed Cherny, as well as important local leaders such as Mesa Councilman Dennis Kavanaugh and former state Rep. Rae Waters.
