"I spoke with Judge Pestka tonight and congratulated him on his victory in this hard-fought campaign," said Thomas. "I told him that I look forward to working together to defeat Justin Amash in the fall. Democrats and folks from across the political spectrum are united in feeling that Representative Amash is out of touch with West Michigan values, and we need to make sure that we unseat him in November."
Pestka continues to claim "consistent" 100% rating from League of Conservation Voters; in fact, received 55% in first term, the 3rd lowest score of any Democrat in his first term in Congress
"Trevor is committed to West Michigan and he'll fight for policies that make sense." said Mayor Myers. "He's got my backing because he'll fight for what's right, and he'll be a true advocate for the people of West Michigan and our communities."
"Trevor Thomas will be a terrific advocate for equality in Congress. His accomplishments and record for taking tough, public stands on key issues will serve those who still feel the effects of discrimination in this country well," said Amy Hunter, President of Equality Michigan Pride PAC.
"I am endorsing Trevor Thomas because I think he is the best Democrat to beat the incumbent Republican and to serve the district," said U.S. Representative Barney Frank. "Trevor has showed he'll put in the work to win a tough race, and that's what a Democrat will need to do to win in the fall."
