Teacher, Scientist, Progressive: RUSH HOLT FOR SENATE

Tuesday, August 13
Polls open 6:00 am - 8:00 pm.

Tomorrow, August 13, is the day of the Special Primary Election for the U.S. Senate. I am supporting Rush Holt to fill the seat of the late Sen. Frank Lautenberg. Rep. Holt has served the state of New Jersey well and, as the 12th-District congressman (which includes Plainfield) and the ONLY true progressive in this race, I am proud to endorse his candidacy. Rush has also received the endorsement of the National Organization for Women, among other groups. Look at the respective records of the candidates running--as legislators and leaders, do their records reflect improvements in the lives of the working people in their sphere? Rush has a record of accomplishment as a legislator--take a look at it below.

As we consider who to vote for in this extremely important election, we should be sure to vote on issues, not on empty rhetoric, glitz, and inspirational quotes. You should consider who will best serve the state and who is the strongest supporter of saving Social Security, fighting the excesses of Wall Street, helping to create effective and progressive legislation to deal with global warming, the environment, education, health care, the economy, and other issues of  great concern to Americans.

All best,
