On Thursday, Elizabeth received the endorsement of Lowell Mayor Patrick Murphy.

Mayor Murphy is an independent who cares deeply about the future of his city and Massachusetts. Watch his endorsement and share it with your friends on Facebook and Twitter:

The mayor and Elizabeth were at Ramalho’s West End Gym — the Lowell boxing gym where Mayor Murphy learned to fight, and the same gym made famous by Micky Ward and the movie The Fighter.

Elizabeth told Mayor Murphy and the gym’s owner Art Ramalho, “I’ve never been in the ring, but I’m a fighter, too.”

Elizabeth’s in the biggest fight of her life right now — and she’s going to win because she has you and people like Mayor Murphy in her corner.
