And great words of advice from Massa, who argues that anyone can be a "Fighting Dem", not just vets:
I ask you stand beside us. If you live in a district that's fortunate enough to field two Fighting Dem candidates, one a vet and one not, vote in the primary as you always would--for the better candidate. That, as always, is your privilege, your right, and, in fact, your duty. But I ask that you do not disparage the movement as a whole. We're in this fight for our country together--together as Democrats. Let's stand together to field and fund the best candidate in every district.
