On the House side, the group is supporting Chris Blazejewski (District 2), Libby Kimzey (District 8), Grace Diaz (District 11), Joe Almeida (District 12), Art Handy (District 18), Jon Restivo (District 40), Peter Petrarca (District 44), Michael Morin (District 49), J. Patrick O’Neill (District 59), Charles Tsonas (District 63), Gregg Amore (District 65) and Marvin Abney (District 73).

In the Senate, Adam Satchell (District 9), Roberto DaSilva (District 14), Ryan Pearson (District 19), Lewis Pryeor (District 24), Gene Dyszlewski (District 26), Laura Pisaturo (District 29) and Dave Gorman (District 33) picked up endorsements.
