Douglas Herbert Receives Endorsement from General Wesley Clark
(Morristown, NJ) - September 22, 2010 - General Wesley Clark, who served as NATO Supreme Allied Commander and led the Operation Allied Force in Kosovo, has endorsed Douglas Herbert for Congress in New Jersey's Eleventh District. Douglas, a veteran, served our nation for four years with the 2nd Armored Division in West Germany and parachuted with the 82nd Airborne Division. Doug said, "General Clark's endorsement is not only of great political significance for my campaign, but it speaks to our common desire to renew America's commitments to the values that made this nation great."
Doug, who is challenging the eight-term incumbent, Rodney Frelinghuysen, has built a strong bi-partisan coalition of support in a district once thought to be a Republican stronghold. Doug's campaign, which has gained substantial momentum against the incumbent, is proving that the voters of the Eleventh District are concerned with real solutions focused on the creation of jobs, repairing the economy and addressing the needs of our Veterans.
General Wesley Clark's political arm - WesPAC - Securing America's Future issued the following statement:
One of the reasons I founded WesPAC - Securing America's Future was to help elect leaders like Douglas Herbert to Congress. Douglas is committed to securing America's future through the creation of jobs, the repair of our economy, addressing the needs of our Veterans and renewing America's commitments to the values that have made our nation great.
Years ago, Douglas devoted himself to our country by enlisting in the Army. Though he has completed his duty honorably, serving in the infantry and with the 82nd Airborne, he has not stopped fighting for the people of this nation. Today he continues that fight as a lawyer, protecting the rights of ordinary people. As a Congressman, he will fight for the people of his district, our country and help restore our nation's security and prosperity.
I endorse Douglas Herbert not simply because he is the right choice for New Jersey's Eleventh District, but because he is the right choice to help move our country forward.
Sincerely, Wes Clark
