Veterans Endorse Schweikert

For Immediate Release: October 10, 2008                   
Veterans group offers enthusiastic endorsement of Schweikert
Scottsdale, AZ – The National Vietnam and Gulf War Veterans Coalition has announced its endorsement to Fifth District Congressional candidate David Schweikert.  The Coalition cites Schweikert’s strong positions on the treatment and care of veterans, national security issues such as the War on Terror and U.S. border security as well as Schweikert’s support for increased domestic energy production.
“I’m proud to accept this endorsement. This organization represents hundreds of thousands of veterans and I’m honored that they would support my bid to serve in the U.S. Congress,” Schweikert said. 
“This demonstrates that veterans’ issues transcend partisan politics.  I’m very disappointed that the current holder of this seat has adopted the attitude that he and he alone speaks for veterans.  That is clearly not the case.  Congress has a long tradition of setting aside partisan squabbles when it comes to veterans’ issues, and I urge Harry Mitchell to follow that tradition.” continued Schweikert.
The Coalition is comprised of more than 80 veterans’ organizations and advocacy groups representing more than 250,000 veterans and their families totaling more than two million voters across the country.
