2020 Federal Endorsements
The Patriotic Millionaires organization endorses candidates who will champion the “first principles” of a fair tax system, a livable minimum wage, and equal political representation in their campaigns, and who will support legislation that translates these principles into laws if elected. We are excited to endorse candidates who are making real strides to uphold these values.
