[U.S. Senate\Lawrence Hamm\Cornel West]
Cornel West: “Lawrence Hamm has spent the greater part of his life examining, reflecting and fighting for the kind of society that demands we place justice for all at the center of our philosophy."

Cornel West, one of the nation’s leading social critics, endorsed Lawrence Hamm in his bid to unseat Cory Booker in the U.S. Senate.

West, the author of over 20 books, had this to say about Lawrence Hamm and his candidacy. “A life lived in service to the least and most vulnerable of us is a life worthy of honor, and one that gives us all hope for the future.

“Lawrence Hamm has spent the greater part of his life examining, reflecting and fighting for the kind of society that demands we place justice for all at the center of our philosophy.

He manifests the best in the long tradition and legacy of freedom fighters waging and wailing against the injustice that impacts us all: courage, critique, and love.

“I endorse Lawrence Hamm for Senate in New Jersey with the belief that he is very idea of the reimagining of this country we both love.

“Brother Hamm will take the people onto the floor of the Senate and demand this country live up to the very premise of democracy and justice for all, he finished passionately,” West, who has served as co-chair for the Sanders Campaign and continues to work for other down-ballot Sanders’ Democrats running for office, said.

West and Hamm shared a platform in November at a Rutgers Newark to urge young people and college students to take active stances in the upcoming elections.

The energetic self-described public intellectual, West appears regularly on a wide range of network shows for his insight on important contemporary issues ranging from CNN to The Bill Maher Show.

His books "Race Matters, Democracy Matters" and more recently "Black Prophetic Fires," which appears to have influenced the Sanders’ Campaign slogan "Not Me, Us," continue to be best sellers.

“I am humbled and encouraged by this endorsement from Dr. Cornel West," Hamm said. “His support deepens our stride, quickens our pace, and strengthens our resolve as we move ever forward,” the long-distance running veteran activist, grateful for the endorsement, said.
