VoteVets.org has endorsed Tommy Sowers in his bid for Congress in the 8th Congressional District.
VoteVets.org's Political Action Committee says its already helped raise $6,000 for Sowers' challenge to Republican Rep. Jo Ann Emerson.
"Tommy Sowers is a rare breed – an elite soldier and accomplished scholar,” said Jon Soltz, Iraq War Veteran and Chairman of VoteVets.org PAC. “His entire life can be summed up in two words: Hard Work. From his military career which took him all the way to special forces and leading a team of Green Berets, to going to the London School of Economics on scholarship and then teaching at West Point, Tommy has simply never rested. That quality will make him an exemplary leader in Congress, and an incredible servant for his constituents," Soltz added.
Soltz also said Sowers' "real war experience in Iraq will bring another credible voice to the important debate we are having about where and when to deploy troops."
