The North Kingstown Democratic Town Committee endorsed Jim Langevin Monday night in his reelection bid to represent the Second District in the United States Congress.
“Jim Langevin is as committed to helping Rhode Island families as he has always been, and he remains accessible to and supportive of our community,” said Chairman Anthony Giarrusso. “It is with great pride and enthusiasm that the North Kingstown Democratic Town Committee offers our wholehearted endorsement of Jim in his effort to continue representing us in Congress.”
Langevin started his career in public service in 1986 when he was elected to the state’s Constitutional Convention. He later served as a Warwick State Representative and was then elected Secretary of State. Langevin was elected to the United States Congress in 2000, and currently serves as a senior member of both the House Armed Services and Homeland Security Committees.
“The Democratic Town Committee serves as an active, vocal, and effective champion for the residents of North Kingstown, and I am so grateful for their support in this election,” said Langevin. “Our state and our nation are at a crossroads, and how we tackle the challenges we face today will determine the opportunities of tomorrow. I want to return to Congress to ensure we meet those challenges head on and in a way that benefits all Rhode Islanders.”
In the 2016 election, Langevin has already received endorsements from the Rhode Island Democratic Party State Committee, the Rhode Island Association of Democratic City and Town Chairs, Democratic Town Committees in Burrillville, Johnston, East Greenwich and Providence, and from the AFL-CIO.
