This same Congressman recently became the first and only Democrat to be endorsed by the Club for Growth. Remember the Club for Growth -- the ultra right-wing organization responsible for some of the most vile attack ads you can imagine -- including two vicious ads that attacked Howard Dean and his "body piercing, Hollywood-loving, left-wing freak show."
This is our chance to stand together against Democrats who claim to represent our interests, but go to Washington and betray us. This election is less then 4 weeks away, please support Ciro Rodriguez today:
Ciro served on the Armed Services Committee, but opposed the War in Iraq from the beginning. On the Veterans Affairs Committee he was a vocal advocate to support and honor our veterans for their service. An educator and social worker, Ciro has spent a career in public service fighting for issues that matter to working Americans like education, infrastructure and jobs. He'll support legislation to provide quality health care for the 43 million Americans without health insurance.
Rodriguez is running an exciting campaign to take back the 28th Congressional District in Texas. In 2004, after an intense recount, the election came down to just 58 votes and Ciro is working hard to win this race for real Democrats. He's picked up endorsements from national political and grassroots organizations including the AFL-CIO and all the major national labor unions, plus community organizations like Latinos for Texas. He's also received the support of more than 20 Members of Congress.
By standing together and putting our resources behind Ciro Rodriguez we can show the people of Texas -- and the nation -- the difference we can make.
Chair, Democracy for America
P.S. When Ciro wins, it will put DINOs (Democrats In Name Only) like Henry Cuellar on notice that we're not afraid to fight back and unite behind candidates who share our values. Please make a contribution to Ciro Rodriguez's campaign today:
