Tom Duane

Former New York State Senator

"It is a rare thing for voters to have the opportunity to choose a Representative of Evelyn's quality," Duane said. "With deep roots in the community, global stature, experience delivering at the highest levels in Washington, and a big heart, Evelyn is truly the ideal candidate to succeed Representative Nita Lowey. I am excited to endorse Evelyn because I know she will deliver on the progressive priorities that we need for New York and our nation, from healthcare and gun-violence to human rights abroad and LGBTQ equality here at home."
