Celeste Williams, a Democratic candidate for U.S. Congress in Arkansas’ 3rd District, has been endorsed by Sen. Elizabeth Warren’s newly formed organization the Warren Democrats. Williams is facing incumbent Rep. Steve Womack, R-Rogers.

Sen. Warren, D-Massachusetts, was a previous candidate for President.

“I’m proud to support Celeste Williams’ campaign to dream big and fight hard alongside the people of Arkansas. Now, more than ever, it’s clear that we need competent, compassionate leadership. It’s time to elect a nurse in Arkansas’s Third,” said Warren.

Williams is among the first 20 candidates selected for endorsement.

“I’m honored to have Sen. Warren in our corner,” said Williams. “Like Sen. Warren, I believe we must tear down the economic barriers that prevent everyday Arkansans in District 3 from reaching their goals. Our team has caught the attention of Elizabeth Warren because we are committed to fighting the big fights like making sure no one goes broke when they get sick, that everyone has access to a world class education and workers in America get paid decent wages for hard work.”

Williams is a family nurse practitioner and is a member of the American Nurses Association, Arkansas Nurses Association, and the American Association of Nurse Practitioners.
