“We are endorsing Nate McMurray because he firmly stands with us on issues that matter to working class people in America today,” said WFP representative Louisa Pacheco. “Nate boldly supports protecting immigrants as a marginalized labor force, expanding healthcare for all, and building a country that is for everybody – not just the rich. We stand with him because he has an expansive and fresh vision for NY-27!”

The Working Families Party is a minor political party founded in 1998 that uses fusion voting to cross endorse candidates on other party lines. Recently, the WFP has garnered national attention with its interviews of the 2020 presidential candidates and endorsement of Elizabeth Warren in the Democratic Primary.

“It’s an honor and a privilege to be endorsed for the second time by the Working Families Party,” said McMurray. “We will win the special election by engaging our strong grassroots partnerships across the region and beyond. The good people of WFP will be a critical part of this coalition, help us finish what we started in 2018, and once and for all restore the people’s voice in this office.”

McMurray is a native of North Tonawanda. He ran for Congress in NY-27 in 2018 and lost by less than 1% of the vote. McMurray, an Eagle Scout, is one of seven children raised by a single mother when his father died of cancer at the age of 39.

McMurray worked his way through community college, earned a bachelor’s degree at SUNY Buffalo, then earned a law degree from California’s prestigious Hastings College of Law. The US government awarded Nate a Fulbright Scholarship to study the development of constitutional democracy in South Korea.

He was formerly the Town Supervisor of Grand Island. He is currently Vice President of Business Development for Delaware North.
