Northside Democracy for America (NDFA) has voted to endorse Raja Krishmamoorthi in the race for the Democratic nomination in Illinois' 8th congressional district race. Krishnamoorthi is running against Tammy Duckworth, former assistant secretary for Veterans Affairs.
“I am so proud and honored to have the support of NDFA and the progressive Democrats in their organization and that they represent,” said Krishnamoorthi in a release. “From the very beginning, my campaign has received immense support from our community and local grassroots organizations like NDFA because they know I am the candidate best equipped to create jobs for the middle class and that I will never stop fighting for my district.”
NDFA defines itself as a "grassroots political organization dedicated to electing socially progressive, fiscally responsible, ethically committed Democrats to all levels of government."
