Democratic state Senate candidate Jessica Ramos and candidate for lieutenant governor Jumaane Williams on Tuesday endorsed each other in their insurgent primary races.

The endorsements are yet another example of the challengers in key races for the state Senate and statewide campaigns finding ways of joining forces ahead of next month’s vote.

Ramos is challenging Queens Democratic Sen. Jose Peralta, a former member of the Independent Democratic Conference, which dissolved itself in April.

“Jessica’s commitment to enacting strong, progressive solutions is matched only by her commitment to the people of her community who need those solutions,” said Williams, a New York City councilman who represents Brooklyn.

“She sees people struggling with out-of-control rent, underfunded schools and inadequate healthcare, and is driven to make lives better for the people of Queens and throughout New York. I will be honored to work with her on a bold progressive agenda when she is elected to the New York State Senate.”

Williams faces incumbent Lt. Gov. Kathy Hochul in the Sept. 13 Democratic primary and is running alongside Cynthia Nixon.

“Earlier this summer, my friend Jumaane was arrested for protesting Kavanaugh’s nomination to the Supreme Court. That night, he put everything on the line to stand up for what he believes. That is the attitude with which he has governed as a City Council Member for 9 years—fighting tooth and nail for affordable housing, fair policing, and a city free of gun violence. Jumaane’s record is proof that legislators can create real, tangible progress in their communities,” Ramos said.

“I’m honored to have Jumaane’s endorsement, and proud to endorse him today. We are the bold, progressive future of New York, and I look forward to working with him in Albany.”
