“Huge shoutout to @StudentsforDC + other statehood advocacy orgs for their incredible success with the #DCStatehoodPledge! If you’re running for elected office and you haven’t signed the pledge, now’s your chance! We’d love to volunteer for any statehood-supporting candidates!
DC Democratic Party – July 17, 2020

Rep. Carolyn Maloney – February 11, 2020
