Reshma Saujani announced she was endorsed by Russell Simmons, the hip-hop mogul from Queens. Minutes later, Rep. Carolyn Maloney, the congresswoman that Saujani is trying to unseat, emailed supporters a letter from her high-profile supporter: Bill Clinton.
Clinton wrote, "Decades from now, we will all still be reaping the benefits of Carolyn’s extraordinary work. She is one of the very best 'how' politicians serving in the United States House of Representatives today."
