Van Ness endorsed Warren in September, citing the cost of his HIV medication.

"The moment I knew I was endorsing Elizabeth Warren was last month when I misplaced my HIV meds," Van Ness tweeted at the time. "It cost $3500 to replace them out of pocket with 'amazing' plantinum [sic] level insurance. Healthcare shouldn’t be for-profit ever, it’s a human right."
