PODER PAC endorses Raquel Terán for Congress

If elected, Terán would be the first Latina elected to Congress from Arizona.


Phoenix, AZ— Arizona congressional candidate Raquel Terán announced a new endorsement today from PODER PAC, the first and only political action committee founded by and for Latinas to elect pro-choice Democratic Latinas to Congress. If elected, Raquel Terán would make history as the first Latina elected to Congress from Arizona. 


“As a proud Latina born and raised on the Arizona border, I am honored to have the support of PODER PAC,” said Raquel Terán, candidate for Arizona’s third congressional district. “From women’s rights to workers’ rights to our democracy, the stakes in our country have never been higher. I've dedicated my life to justice and equality and I’ve never backed down from a fight. With the support of the PODER PAC community Arizona will finally send a Latina to Congress for the first time. ¡Sí se puede!”


“As a lifelong Arizonan, I have witnessed Raquel do the impossible of taking on far-right extremists and winning. From dismantling SB1070, expelling Russell Pearce, and uplifting the next generation of leaders in Arizona to defeat Donald Trump and Joe Arpaio, PODER PAC is proud to endorse her for AZ-03. After leading the Arizona Democratic Party to historic victories at the state and federal levels, Raquel’s fight is now needed in Congress,” said Ilse Rodriguez, PODER PAC Director.


“It is evident Raquel has the passion, energy, and vast community support to represent AZ-03," said Maria Cardona, PODER PAC Founding Board Member. "She has been a fierce leader for abortion rights in the state legislature and PODER PAC will be proud to have her representing Latinas in Congress."


Latinas make up a mere two percent of U.S. House members and PODER PAC is committed to electing Raquel Terán as a part of increasing that number. PODER PAC is the latest endorser to throw their support behind Raquel Terán, joining Senator Mark Kelly and dozens of local leaders throughout Arizona.
