Howard Dean And Democracy For America Endorse Raul Grijalva, Donna Edwards

Written by  Jordan Howard | Huffington Post

Former Vermont Gov. Howard Dean (D) and Democracy for America, a progressive PAC, have endorsed Reps. Raul Grijalva (D-Ariz.) and Donna Edwards (D-Md.) in their 2012 reelection races.

In an email to DFA members Dean states, "Few Democrats in the House of Representatives have fought harder than Donna and Raul to stop Paul Ryan's plan to end Medicare. They stood strong to defeat attempts to cut Social Security. And they have never backed down in the fight to restore the American Dream for everyone. But now their districts have been redrawn to make them significantly harder for a progressive Democrat to win."

Throughout the country states are redrawing their congressional lines based on the results of the 2010 census.

Grijalva's home state of Arizona is locked in a bitter fight over the congressional districts. Gov. Jan Brewer and the Arizona Senate are attempting to remove the chair of the state's independent redistricting committee.

Under the proposed lines, Grijalva is being challenged in the primary by former state Sen. Amanda Aguirre. She cited Grijalva's position on immigration as her reason for entering the race.
