Joe Crowley (D-N.Y.), endorsed Marie Newman, who is running against Rep. Dan Lipinski (D-Ill.), and Cori Bush, who is challenging Rep. Lacy Clay (D-Mo.).

The article goes on to state the following:

On the Senate side, Justice Democrats backed Betsy Sweet in her bid for the Democratic nomination to take on Collins next year.

“We are proud to endorse these three women as they fight for Medicare for All, a Green New Deal, free college, and ending mass incarceration and deportation,” said Alexandra Rojas, executive director of Justice Democrats, in a statement Wednesday. “This moment demands courage, strength and a new generation of leadership that is actually going to put aside political ambition, and present solutions that match the scale and urgency of the crisis we face.”
