Russell Simmons For Reshma Saujani

Resma Saujani is out with an endorsement today from hip-hop impresario Russell Simmons, who the campaign touts is a “Queens native.”

“Reshma is exactly the type of person we need to send to Washington right now,” Simmons says in the release “It’s refreshing to have a politician who speaks her mind and advocates for what she believe is right — no matter the political consequences.  We need people who will give voice to underrepresented communities in New York City, and I have all the confidence in the world that Reshma will be that voice.”

It’s unclear exactly how many voters Simmons is expected to move on the Upper East Side… Russell Simmons For Reshma Saujani
