About our Endorsed Candidates

Ben Jealous shares the JUFJ Campaign Fund’s priorities for social, economic, and racial justice for all Marylanders. Ben knows how to build bipartisan consensus among nonprofits, social justice groups, unions, and allies in the business community to increase the minimum wage, and to defend immigrant Marylanders from ICE.

Susie Turnbull‘s broad network and years of experience in the Maryland Democratic Party and the Jewish community will help her build support for programs Maryland needs, like affordable healthcare and public education for all. As a strong advocate for women’s rights, she has helped to train other women in Maryland to run for and serve in public office.

Johnny Olszewski will make government more accessible and transparent to regular people, and ensure that Baltimore County’s law enforcement officers treat every member of our society with dignity. He believes that Baltimore City and Baltimore County need to work together so both can thrive — and he’ll fight for affordable housing and water, accessible transportation, and good jobs.

Marc Elrich is a dependable, longtime progressive ally on the Montgomery County Council. He was the lead sponsor and champion of the $15 minimum wage, making MoCo the first suburban district in the nation with a $15 minimum wage. As a former teacher, he will fight to make sure everyone has access to quality public education, and he is committed to advancing racial equity through concrete data, analysis, and policy.
