Council Member Jimmy Van Bramer has endorsed Elizabeth Warren for the Democratic nomination for the 2020 U.S. Presidential election.
Van Bramer made the announcement on Twitter Thursday and called Warren a “true progressive champion.”
The councilman said that he endorsed Warren because she has a real plan to tackle problems facing America. He said that she had an unshakable commitment to the people of America and not to big corporations.
Warren has said that tackling corruption in Washington will be her main priority if she gets elected. She also pledged to expand social security benefits, introduce gun control legislation and guarantee vital resources for the Native American community.
Van Bramer said that Warren will put American families first and said that the country needs her to be president. He said that Warren will fight for workers, combat climate change and make America a more fair and just country.
“The next president of the United States needs to fight for families like mine, and lead us toward an economic future that puts people first,” Van Bramer wrote. “That’s my life’s work and Elizabeth Warren’s as well, and that’s why I’m unbelievably proud to support her for president.”
Warren most recently polled third behind Joe Biden and Bernie Sanders among Democratic candidates in a poll taken by market research company Morning Consult. The company has been conducting weekly polls since February based on the response of more than 5,000 people.
Support for Warren has gradually increased over the summer, according to the polls. She received 16 percent of votes in the latest poll taken on Sept. 8, up from 9 percent when the polls began on Feb. 3.
Proud to endorse Senator Elizabeth Warren for President! She’s got plans to break up big tech, fight for workers, save our planet and make our Country a more fair and just place.
Now if I could just get @ewarren to make a plan to get my husband Dan to take out the trash! pic.twitter.com/KwwzIQNIXm

The Warren campaign should have talked with Tiffany Caban, Cynthia Nixon, Melissa Skarlz and Joe Crowley before sitting for a campaign picture with Jimmy Van Bramer. Let’s not forget the results of Mr. Van Bramer’s efforts to elect Christine Quinn as Mayor. #kissofdeath
what a joke.
Why endorse now?Could it have anything to do with the diss-off letter from new co-Chair of the DSA (as reported in the Daily News)?
this is a lamest group of candidates I have ever seen, really pathetic, Can you imagine any one of them standing toe to toe w Trump? 320 million people in the country and all we could find is this sad lot of losers.
As lame as a convicted con artist who dodged the draft and set bankruptcy records. Yes, I can imagine anyone of these candidates going toe to toe with a man who has proven over and over that he absolutely no knowledge of history facts or even the bible he holds so dear. The loser of a debate is always the one who resorts to personal attacks and insults to hide his lack knowledge.
Great decision. Warren is by far the best choice from the Dems. Biden is too old and too gaff prone. Note to Bernie: Staten Island is not Sweden. And let’s net even think about Bill de B’s clown car candidacy.
JVB has Bad Juju!!! Anyone this creep endorses ends up in the toilet and on the losing end. A Three vote endorsement is all he will provide:
Jimmy’s, his husband and his errand boy Medrano. Everyone I know in my neighborhood simply detest this guy and have vowed never to vote for him again.
They look like siblings
…..and she’s finished…
Cynthia Nixon agrees!
Wow she must be so relieved. I can’t imagine the anxiety she experienced while wondering if she’d secure his influential endorsement.
man, that high screechy voice, like my grandmothers scolding me!
this woman who pretended for many years to be a Native American is a joke. Is this the best the Democrats have? LOL
Trump lovers are so gullible. You’re upset that Trump lied about stubbing his toe in order to dodge the draft right?
A joke have you seen Donald Trump who can’t name a bible verse ( likes Old Testament & New Testament equally), pays off hookers, claims he’s Swedish,convicted of fraud for his Trump University scam, hilariously publicly humiliates former staff members, draft dodger, took medical coverage away from his ailing nephew, demand people at National Weather Service (NOAA) be fired for correcting his mistake and warning Alabama residents accordingly, a businessman who has set actual records in bankruptcies and so on. But she’s the joke.
Your TDS is showing, l’ll call a boss and a bus for you. We have a special jacket that ties in the back just for you.
What are talking about? Do you have an actual argument or just name calling?
Trump Derangement Syndrome, most common effects are stopping you from having a rational response to anything. You yell Trump and Fox News repeatedly and make no point. The special jacket we have for you is very comphy, we only tie it in the back for your benefit.
┻┳| •.•) Obvious troll
┳┻|⊂ﾉ is obvious.
Ah yes a woman who gets paid a fortune on how to become a professional freeloader. Bernie move over. Elizabeth tall chief is here.
Van Bramer, who had endorsed Cynthia Nixon, now endorses Warren, the fake Native American. They can drink the fire water together.
Old Lily you don’t need to post on this article multiple times. We know you’re mad but…
Panderer pandering to a panderer
This is a very bad choice. The only reason all the political and media class have coalesced around Warren is that Harris and Biden are incompetent and they are desperate to stop Bernie. Ask yourself why all the most powerful people in the country are willing to back transparently weak candidates who will obviously lose to Trump in order to try to stop the most popular American politician alive. Bernie is the best candidate for the 99%!
Yep, that’s the only reason.
Certainly not that she’s hugely popular, knows what she’s talking about, has detailed plans for nearly everything, and was an effective legislator (near the top for laws passed, cosponsored bills, bipartisan bills, bicameral bills, etc.). Nope, the ONLY possible explanation is to stop Bernie because… something or other.
She is an imbecile. I still hate the orange idiot, but replacing one idiot with another idiot is not an answer.
Wow, what a convincing argument. You’ve totally changed my mind about her with your thoughtful analysis of her policies. Thank you ever so much!
Every one of Warren’s plans is just copied from Bernie and then watered down to make it more “wonkish.” Not to mention she has a long history of lying about everything.
Bernie: how about free college and no student debt
Warren: How about slightly reducing student debt for a few people
Bernie: I support Medicare for All, here’s my specific plan
Warren: I support Medicare for All, but I refuse to release a plan
Bernie: I understand the problems of working class New Yorkers because I grew up the son of poor immigrants in a small rent stabilized apartment.
Warren: I was a Republican most of my life and I lied about being Native American for decades to advance my career.
Bernie: I have millions of Americans behind me ready to fight the Republicans, because my ideas inspire them.
Warren: Jimmy Van Bramer endorsed me.
Yeah, she’s the qualified one.
So JVB is not a Bernie Bro. So what.
JVB thinks this will help Warren get elected. @ewarren save yourself; do not to accept the endorsement!
Why do you think this? And why do you think she should listen to you? Can you explain this without citing an irrational hatred towards bike lanes? Seriously, enough of this already.
“guarantee vital resources for the Native American community”….there goes Pocahontas favoring her own kind over Europeans…Her proud racism is just awful….although if she promises me a free house, healthcare and transportation…(plus a refund of my college tuition) I will certainly vote for her….Social Justice!!!
You don’t support Trump’s racist birther movement or the murderous white power Trump rally in Charlottesville right? lmao
Only a bitter and twisted mind could translate addressing the well-documented problems on reservations into anti-white racism.
The person saying, “…Pocahontas favoring her own kind over Europeans,” is accusing others of racism.
This site is free, folks! 😀
I heard warren has a plan to tax this site and use the proceeds to pay for free legal representation for illegal immigrants….so enjoy the free ride while it lasts…
It’s hard to believe there are so few good Conservative comedians, isn’t it folks?
Wait, do you think this is Twitter? Why did you use “@ewarren” here?
