U.S. women\'s soccer superstar Megan Rapinoe endorses Elizabeth Warren for 2020

WASHINGTON – U.S. women's soccer superstar and World Cup champion Megan Rapinoe endorsed Massachusetts Senator Elizabeth Warren for President on Friday.

"Consider me Team Warren" Rapinoe declared into the camera while on the phone with the Senator, holding a fist into the air.

Rapinoe, who was recently named Sports Illustrated 2019 Sportsperson of the Year, is an outspoken social activist, standing at the forefront of the fights against inequality in women's soccer, overall equal pay, LGBTQ rights, and social justice issues.

"I truly believe the best things in life are a result of being bold and being real," Rapinoe tweeted Friday. "I’m proud to endorse Elizabeth Warren today, for being bold, for being real, for listening to ALL of us, and for being prepared to navigate the unique challenges we face today as a country."

In the video accompanying the tweet, Rapinoe tells Warren that she doesn't "think we can get to a better place by walking a moderate line so I appreciate you being out front and being big and bold with that."

"We have to build a system that takes everybody into account by listening to everybody," the soccer star continued.

The Senator released a statement following the endorsement, stating that "Megan is a champion of justice on and off the field and a role model for women and girls everywhere. I am honored to have her endorsement, and look forward to fighting alongside her for big, structural change."

Rapinoe was the co-captain of the successful U.S. women's soccer team, helping lead them to their second World Cup title in a row earlier this year. The team was named as Time Magazine's 2019 Athlete of the Year.
