Rhode Island Lt. Governor Sabina Matos Picks Up Major Endorsements for Congress

June 29, 2023

Last week, Rhode Island Lt. Governor Sabina Matos picked up major endorsements from two of the leading groups that support women running for Congress: EMILYs List and Elect Democratic Women. The two groups join Congressional Hispanic Caucus BOLD PACLatino Victory FundPODER PAC, and Elect Black Women in supporting Matos for Congress. 

Elections forecaster and senior editor at the Cook Political Report Dave Wasserman says that the EMILYs List endorsement “solidifies Matos’ initial position as the frontrunner in the race.” 

Matos has been a trailblazer as both the first Afro-Latina to be President of the Providence City Council and hold statewide office in Rhode Island. If elected, she would become the first Democratic woman and first person of color elected to Congress in Rhode Island’s history – as well as the nation’s first Afro-Latina elected to Congress.

We are thrilled to continue our work with her and help elect her to Congress this fall.
