RENEW AMERICA MOVEMENT UNVEILS SLATE OF 2022 HOUSE & SENATE CANDIDATES TO SUPPORT

List of “Renewers” includes Republican and Democratic Representatives who have led the charge against extremism.

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Oct 14th, 2021

WASHINGTON, DC – The Renew America Movement (RAM) today announced their first slate of “Renewers,” senators and representatives whom the movement intends to support for reelection. These 21 Republicans, Democrats and independents have proven their staunch commitment to democracy and fearless rejection of radicalism. 

RAM will not only mobilize its nationwide network of voters, grassroots, and grasstops leaders to support these principled, pro-democracy candidates, but it will also campaign directly in many of these races. Renewers on the left, right, and center are working together to strengthen the political center and defeat rising extremism by protecting principled leaders electorally.

“With the mounting threats to our democracy and constitution, it isn’t enough to be a ‘good’ member of Congress. We need ‘Renewers” – people who work proactively to lead their party and the country away from the political extremes. It isn’t about being on the right side of some particular policy, it’s about standing boldly on the side of freedom and democracy.”

– Joel Searby, RAM National Political Director

“Too many people eulogize Congress’ ability to solve problems, but very few people stand up and do something about it. These Renewers might not agree with each other on tax policy or infrastructure, but they stand shoulder to shoulder in defense of truth, democracy, and common sense. And right now, that is more important than policy debate.”

– Miles Taylor, RAM Co-Founder and Acting Executive Director
