Senator Mikulski Endorses Congresswoman Edwards for Re-Election

Congresswoman Donna F. Edwards (D-MD) announced today that Maryland Senator Barbara Mikulski (D-MD) is endorsing her candidacy for re-election in Maryland's 4th Congressional District. 

"I am proud to support Congresswoman Donna Edwards.  She is part of the new generation of women in Congress who are coming into their own in a new way for a new day -- claiming their power to empower others.  She is my partner -- working to create jobs and opportunity in the Fourth District." - Senator Barbara Mikulski.

"I am proud to receive the endorsement of one of Maryland's greatest leaders, Sen. Barbara Mikulski," said Congresswoman Edwards.  "I value our tremendous partnership.  We have worked together to maintain funding for critical scientific research at Goddard Space Flight Center, Suitland's NOAA facility, and other federal facilities across Maryland, create a new emergency response and preparedness initiative for the national capitol region centered at Prince George's Hospital Center, and protect women's rights and health in the landmark Affordable Care Act.  I look forward to continue working with Senator Mikulski in the years ahead on behalf of Maryland's families to create jobs, to protect Social Security and Medicare, to prepare students for the 21st century global economy, and to protect the Chesapeake Bay and Maryland's other natural resources."

Join "Countdown to Coverage" Share TPP with your Daily Newspaper

CWA devised a simple plan for which they were uniquely suited: drag TPP out of the shadows and into the light - one city at a time - using a medium they understand intimately: Daily Newspapers!

Two CWA members - Dave Felice in Denver, CO and Madelyn Elder in Portland, OR have started the ball rolling. We just need to keep up the momentum leading up to a big day of petition deliveries in January.

Hand Deliver a Letter to your Senators or Representative on the TPP

If your Senator(s) and/or Representative is not currently opposed to Fast Track, they may not completely understand all the implications. Nothing sends a stronger message to a Congressional member than a personal visit to a district office by a voter with a written request. Phone calls and emails are incredibly important but nothing gets attention like a personal visit. Our Educate Congress page has information and a sample letter. Print the letter, sign it, deliver it.
