Abdelnasser is working to support progressive candidates across Cook County and the Chicago area. He has served as the co-chair for Our Revolution Illinois for the past two years. He has also supported MoveOn-endorsed candidates such as Chuy García, Fritz Kaegi, and Bernie Sanders.
"I live in the 17th District, and I appreciate his push for good government. I also like his investment in public health, improving access to quality health care services through the Cook County system, which provides care to all in need. He also has a great track record in advocating for workers' rights." –Nadia from Orland Park
