DFA-Marin endorses Norman Solomon for Congress

Written by  Norman Solomon for Congress

Now, more than ever, it is vital to elect candidates who exemplify the values for which Democracy for America (DFA) stands: Community, Security and Liberty. That is why DFA-Marin is proud to endorse Norman Solomon for Congress from the 2nd Congressional District.

We support Norman because he will stand strong against the assault on the working middle class by greedy corporate interests. He'll fight to protect Social Security and Medicare so that we don't have to fear poverty and homelessness as we grow older. He'll work hard to ensure that all of us, regardless of race, religion, gender, sexual orientation or disability are afforded equal rights and equal opportunity. He'll defend our nation's security without sending our sons and daughters off to fight in senseless, endless wars, and without repealing our most basic civil rights guaranteed by the Constitution. Norman will support economic equality and innovative growth that will bring jobs home to our communities.

He will be an unwavering champion of quality education, environmental protection, and healthcare for every American. Norman will always remember that we are the people he represents, not the special interests that pour money into our tainted political system. He has the national experience, integrity, intelligence, and tenacity to bring real change to Washington D.C. and the courage to speak out on our behalf.

For all of these reasons and so many more DFA-Marin is not only endorsing Norman Solomon for Congress, we've also nominated him to be a DFA Grassroots All Star. If Norman is selected as a DFA Grassroots All Star, he will receive the endorsement of  the national organization and all the attention and prestige that endorsement brings. He is currently number 7 out of 82 candidates across the country and moving up every day.
