Students for a New American Politics PAC (SNAP PAC) is proud to endorse Victoria Steele for Arizona’s 2nd Congressional seat. SNAP will place two trained fellows - selected from a competitive nationwide pool of applicants - to work as field organizers on Steele’s campaign this summer.
Steele is a champion of progressive values and a dedicated, proven leader. She was elected in 2012 to the Arizona State House of Representatives, and has served as the Ranking Democrat on the Transportation Committee, and as a member of the Health, Energy and Environment committees. In her two terms in the legislature, she has worked to increase economic opportunity, strengthen public education, and defend a woman’s right to choose. She co-founded the Coalition to Protect Women’s Reproductive Rights, bringing together dozens of allies across the state to fight for women’s health care.
"The endorsement of Students for a New American Politics is a great honor because of their commitment to a fair and equitable political system. My campaign is committed to respecting diversity and leveling the playing field for all people regardless of where they live, the size of their bank account, the color of their skin, what they believe or who they love,” said Victoria Steele.
In Congress, Steele will stand up for hard-working middle-class families. She knows first-hand the difficulties of making ends meet and the stagnation in wages. That’s why she is committed to creating good-paying jobs by making smart investments in infrastructure, education and job training. Steele recognizes the challenges that affect her district and the country and will work continuously to return to the promise of opportunity for all Americans.
“Victoria Steele is an outstanding advocate for women's rights and a progressive leader who is not afraid to push for substantial legislative change,” said SNAP PAC executive director Mila Rostain. “We are thrilled to be working with the campaign and are confident that our fellows will have a meaningful organizing experience.”
