Senator Elizabeth Warren endorsed Mayor Martin Walsh in his bid for re-election on Sunday at a campaign rally at Doyle’s Pub in Jamaica Plain.

Warren called Walsh “a dear friend and a fierce fighter for the people of Boston” who shares “basic values that matter to Bostonians,” according to an announcement released by the Walsh campaign.

“He’s building a city that works well for everyone, whether it is building housing at a record pace to meet needs, ensuring our children are receiving the best education possible, or making Boston a place where every person, no matter who they love or where they come from know they have a home here in this city,” she said. “I would want no other person leading the charge in Boston. Despite all the progress made, there’s more work to be done. But he will continue to fight for what is right and that is why he has my support.”

Walsh is seeking his second term as mayor, challenged by City Councillor Tito Jackson. The general municipal election will take place on Nov. 7.
