Today, Washington, DC Mayor Muriel Bowser endorsed Democratic presidential candidate Mike Bloomberg for president, touting his ambitious plans for equitable economic growth and prosperity, his impactful infrastructure policies that address the growing threat of climate change, his steadfast commitment to gun safety reform, and his plan for tackling the nation’s maternal mortality crisis.
Today, I’m releasing my plan to bring security – and a new path forward – to the 60 million Latinos who live in our country. And by ‘security,’ I don’t mean only physical security. I mean economic security. I mean housing security. I mean the security of knowing your kids will have a quality education, knowing you will be able to afford health care, and knowing you will be safe from climate change.
Democratic presidential candidate Mike Bloomberg delivered remarks today outlining El Paso Adelante, his plan to expand opportunity for the Latino community. El Paso Adelante, or the path forward, calls for significant investments in Latino communities in four ways: closing the college completion gap between whites and Latinos, doubling the number of Latino-owned businesses with employees, reducing chronic diseases among Latinos, as well as clearing the naturalization backlog and creating a path to citizenship for the 11 million undocumented immigrants who contribute to our communities, economy, and country.
Mike grew his nationwide support another 2 percentage points in the latest poll, bringing him to 12%. Over the past month, he has doubled his first-choice support among Democratic pimary voters. As he grows his nationwide vote share, his net favorability has also surged six-fold since November.
