"I have seen him stand firm..." Congressman Elijah Cummings (D-Md.), chair of the Congressional Black Caucus, issued a statement today endorsing the candidacy of Congressman Peter Deutsch.
ÂIt gives me great pleasure to wholeheartedly endorse Congressman Peter Deutsch for U.S. Senate. I have served with him for over eight years and have been very impressed with his sensitivity to issues that go to the center of peopleÂs lives. I have seen him stand firm on making sure our children are properly educated and our seniors are treated with respect and dignity. He has consistently fought to assure that jobs with livable wages are available to all Americans. I think it is very important that his voice be added to those of the U.S. Senate.Â
Media are invited to join a teleconference with Reps. Cummings and Deutsch at 12:15pm Thursday, August 19th. Please contact Aprill Turner at (954) 874-1780 for specific details.
