The political wing of the largest Latino civil rights group endorsed President Biden Tuesday in Arizona, according to a press release.

“For Latino voters, a clear choice,” Janet Murguía, UnidosUS Action Fund president, said in a press conference Thursday. “With Biden, we can continue forward on a path to progress and a brighter future.”

“With [former President Trump,] we move backwards, to harmful and extreme policies and [an] economy that crushed our Latino families,” Murguía continued. “As a community and as a country, we can’t afford to go backwards.”

The group also endorsed Rep. Ruben Gallego (D-Ariz.) in his bid for the Senate this year. Gallego will likely face off against controversial former Arizona GOP gubernatorial candidate Kari Lake.

“This is an election we cannot afford to lose,” Murguía said at the press conference. “We must reelect Joe Biden and [Vice President Harris.] And we’re here because we know the president and vice president cannot fight these battles and continue their road to progress by themselves. They need elected officials who share the same values, and will work to find solutions in Congress.”

A New York Times/Siena College poll from last month found Biden at 50 percent support among Hispanics, with former President Trump at 41 percent. Biden’s campaign has said that they are doing as much as they can to expand their support among Hispanics.

Democratic National Committee Chair Jaime Harrison welcomed the endorsement from UnidosUS Action Fund in a post on the social media platform X Tuesday.
