Endorsements for political candidates can inform you about a candidate's values and their commitment to upholding certain principles, like equality and inclusiveness. When a political candidate applies for an organization's endorsement, its very much like a job application as you are competing against the other candidate or candidates in your race for the single endorsement. You fill out a questionnaire and have an interview with the organization's leadership before they make their final decision on who to endorse. If you receive an organization's endorsement, that organization believes that you will uphold their values and be true to your commitment once elected.
