Representative Joseph P. Kennedy III picked up some notable endorsements from House colleagues in his primary race against Senator Edward J. Markey, gaining the backing of several high-profile Democrats including civil rights icon John Lewis.

“In the years that I have known Joe Kennedy I have seen him stand up and fight — time and again — for the suffering, the struggling and the silenced,” said the 79-year-old Lewis, a Georgia Democrat who was a pivotal player in the civil rights movement.

“At a moment of profound national crisis, Joe offers our country the kind of powerful moral leadership it needs. He is a clear voice for justice and dignity in our rising generation of public servants. I am proud to endorse his run for the U.S. Senate,” Lewis said.

Kennedy also announced endorsements from more than a dozen other House Democrats who represent varying points on the political spectrum.
