Sally is honored to be endorsed by:

“I’m proud to endorse Democratic candidates who aren’t just running against something, but for something—to expand opportunity for all of us and to restore dignity, honor, and compassion to public service.”

Barack Obama44th President of the United States

“I support Sally Harrell because it’s time the people of Georgia State Senate District 40 had their voices heard and their values respected – values that enshrine human rights; offer affordable healthcare for all; promote quality K-12 education for all of our children, not just those in private schools; and that protect and support a cleaner environment. Sally Harrell has a record of fighting for these and other important social issues in Georgia in her previous tenure in the legislature. I know we can count on her to make sure that our voting rights and our democracy are protected, despite Republican meddling from her opponent and his leaders. It’s time to reject the hate spread by the far right, and embrace the expertise, compassion, and clarity of purpose Sally Harrell will bring to Georgia State Senate District 40.”

John LewisU.S. Representative, 5th District

“I strongly endorse Sally Harrell for Georgia Senate District 40. As a DeKalb County Commissioner, I worked with Sally on local issues when she was in the Georgia House of Representatives. Sally is a true leader. She broke barriers for women in government by being the first woman in Georgia’s legislature to serve while becoming a new mother. She leads by example and works to bring attention to issues that aren’t commonly brought to the table — such as healthcare for women and children. She has always worked to make sure government is accessible to the people.”

Hank JohnsonU.S. Representative, 4th District

“I’m proud to support Sally Harrell for Georgia Senate District 40. She will be a champion for fair maps and will help ensure the citizens of Georgia are able to vote in fair elections for the next decade. If we are going to fix the Republican gerrymandering that has plagued our democracy, we need to ensure Democrats have a seat at the table when new maps are drawn in 2021. Sally will work on behalf of all Georgians to make sure their voice and their vote counts.”

Eric H. Holder, Jr.Chairman of the National Democratic Redistricting Committee

“I am proud to endorse Sally Harrell for Georgia Senate. An experienced advocate and problem solver, Sally has dedicated her life to public service. She will build bridges in Senate and work toward common sense solutions to our state’s problems. She will also never waver on defending America’s promise of freedom and opportunity for all.”

Elena ParentState Senator, District 42

“The Georgia Senate needs Sally’s unique voice. As a social worker, Sally has the depth of experience needed to be a voice that minorities can count on — to listen, to understand, and to thoughtfully represent their views. She understands the effects of wealth inequality on basic, human needs and has the skill to translate her progressive values into sound, state-level policy.”

Emanuel JonesState Senator, District 10

We can win back Georgia! That’s why I’m endorsing Sally Harrell for Georgia State Senate District 40. With Sally’s candidacy, we have a critical opportunity to gain another seat and another voice for progress in the Georgia General Assembly.

Jason CarterState Senator

“I’ve known Sally a long time and she’s terrific. She’s smart, reasonable and thoughtful. We need more of that in the Georgia Legislature.”

Scott HolcombState Representative, District 81

“Sally earned respect for being a leader in healthcare issues while serving in the Georgia House of Representatives. Now more than ever we need her voice in the Georgia Senate.”

Michele HensonState Representative, District 86

“Sally Harrell is the kind of leader who is committed to getting it right for all of DeKalb. As our State Senator Sally will be a voice of reason, conviction and vision who is accessible and collaborative.”

Sherry BostonDeKalb County District Attorney

“I’ve seen in Sally the winning spirit and leadership our state needs to succeed. We need smart, concerned people like her in office and I am proud to give her my support.”

Stephe KoontzDoraville City Council

“I am proud to endorse Sally Harrell for Georgia’s State Senate. Sally is an experienced, effective legislator whom we can count on to do the right thing every time. She will be a sound steward of the budget while fighting for access to quality healthcare, education, and jobs that are essential to every Georgian’s progress.”

“For too long, the Georgia legislature has been serving special interests over the citizens of Georgia. Without a significantly higher number of progressive women’s voices at the decision-making table, citizens will continue to be left behind. EMILY’s List is proud to endorse these incredible candidates who will usher in the change Georgia families are waiting for.”
