U.S. Senate Candidate Deedra Abboud Endorsed by Progressive Democrats of America

 

Phoenix, Arizona: May 21, 2018 Progressive Democrats of America, a political organization and grassroots political action committee operating inside and outside of the United States, has officially endorsed U.S. Senate candidate Deedra Abboud. PDA seeks, “to build a party and government controlled by citizens, not corporate elites—with policies that serve the broad public interest, not just private interest.” By endorsing candidates from the bottom up, from every congressional district, to statewide party structures, to those in office currently, the PDA stands to transform the Democratic Party and in turn, our nation.

The PDA only endorses one candidate per office, per state.

As a Justice Democrat, the endorsement of the PDA further cements Deedra Abboud’s commitment to the people of Arizona,

“The people of Arizona are ready for change. They are ready to trust their leadership. I know because I am out there talking to them daily. The endorsement by the Progressive Democrats of America helps to further align my vision and that of the progressive Democratic Party. The people are sick of taking chances and seeing politicians flip in office. We are sick of seeing people enter into office and change their values. These endorsements help to further my commitment to the people.”

The American Way: Remembering September 11th

It is a bittersweet irony that the tragedies that tear our country apart are the same events that knit our communities together. Right on the tails of Hurricane Harvey already devastating parts of Texas and Louisiana, this past weekend a hurricane ripped a path of devastation up the spine of Florida, and while the winds have now quieted and the rain has stalled, it will be many days before we understand the magnitude of the damage. While we don’t know yet the toll this storm has claimed, we do know one thing. Like Texas and Louisiana, Florida is strong, and Florida will recover. Because this is the American way.

The Oath I Took

In 2012 I took an oath at the Arizona Federal Court House. It began, “I, Deedra Abboud, do solemnly swear  that I will support the Constitution and laws of the United States and the State of Arizona.”
I take that oath as seriously today as when I made it five years ago as an attorney, and it is this oath to the United States and to Arizona that propels me forward on my journey toward making Arizona, and our country, a better place.
Our Constitution is at the heart of everything that I stand before and aim to accomplish as a Senator. I believe that our founding documents are one of the greatest achievements of mankind, and will do nothing to contradict those lofty ideals our founding fathers gave us.
