Brooklyn, NY – Julia Salazar, candidate for NYS Senate, and Zephyr Teachout, candidate for NYS Attorney General, held together a press conference on August 6, 2018 to endorse one another in Salazar’s Bushwick neighborhood. Salazar is the insurgent candidate challenging 16-year incumbent Martin Dilan for the State Senate seat in district 18.

“No one has done more to combat the toxic combination of money in politics in Albany than Zephyr Teachout, that’s why I’m so proud to endorse her for Attorney General. I know she’ll be the tough, honest Attorney General we need to clean up Albany, and I look forward to working with her next year to make sure New York State is governed by the people, for the people,” said Salazar.

“Julia is bright, energetic, and unstoppable. Like so many New Yorkers, she’s tired of establishment politicians selling out our neighborhoods to the highest bidder. So she’s taken matters into her own hands, and demonstrated a strength and a vision that will undoubtedly make her an incredible State Senator. I’m very proud to stand alongside Julia in this battle to take on corruption in Albany, and create a more just New York,” said Teachout.

Dilan has received contributions from the now-defunct Senate Independence Campaign Committee (SICC), a slush fund a judge deemed illegal. Two weeks ago the BOE counsel, Risa Sugarman, echoed Teachout’s call for the former IDC members to return those illegal funds. Dilan was the only mainline state senate Democrat to receive money from the SICC.

Salazar’s endorsement is the latest in a wave of grassroots momentum for Teachout for Teachout’s campaign, which is racking up support everyday. Just last week, the New York Progressive Action Network (NYPAN) flipped its position to endorse Teachout after previously saying it would remain neutral. Citing Teachout’s independence NYPAN co-chair George Albro said:

“At first, this was a difficult choice for NYPAN, especially for those of us who have a long relationship of support and collaboration with Tish James on many progressive initiatives. But in the end, we, along with many in the progressive movement, felt a deep bond to Zephyr, who has allied herself unconditionally and out of principle with a growing mass movement within the Democratic Party, led by fearless new leaders like Alexandra Ocasio-Cortez, who has changed all the political rules and calculations for the better.  Tish, on the other hand, has staked her political fortunes on an alliance with the old guard, like Cuomo, who has enabled the party of Trump to block most progressive proposals. In the end, the choice was obvious.”
