President Barack Obama left something in Atlanta on Tuesday – an endorsement of U.S. Rep. John Lewis. From the congressman’s campaign press release:
“Whether it was improving educational opportunity for children, expanding access to quality, affordable healthcare, or helping Georgia families struggling to make ends meet, the 5th district has been able to count on John Lewis,” said President Barack Obama. “Congressman John Lewis is a true American hero, and he has been dedicated to fighting for equality throughout his life. That is why I need him back in Congress to continue the fight with me for the 5th congressional district and for our nation. I need you to cast your vote for Congressman John Lewis in the July primary and again in November.”
Lewis faces Michael Johnson, the former Fulton County superior court judge, in the July 31 Democratic primary.
