“Matt has consistently stood up for the little guy during his years of taking on big business,” said ANA-PAC Chair Faith Jones, MSN, RN, NEA-BC. “His passion for fixing our health care system is something that is closely shared by myself and nurses in Pennsylvania and across the country.”

“I am honored by these endorsements. The future of our Nation’s healthcare is a priority of mine and I will continue to fight for the people of the Northeastern Pennsylvania in Congress,” said, Cartwright.
