General Wes Clark Endorses Carol Shea-Porter for Congress

October 6, 2006. Little Rock,AR--Former NATO Supreme AlliedCommander, General Wesley Clark today endorsed the candidacy of CarolShea-Porter for Congress in New Hampshire's 1st Congressional District.

"I had the pleasure of getting to know Carol Shea-Porter when she worked for my 2004 Presidential campaign. She is smart and determined, and has deep personal convictions. Carol will bring a breath of fresh air to Washington at a time when it is desperately needed."

"Carol was a military spouse and she understands how important it is to protect our soldiers and their families. She has stood up for our soldiers when the Republican leadership failed to provide them with the equipment and the support they need. She rightly criticized the administration for its gross mismanagement of the war and for putting our soldiers at risk without a realistic strategy to win."

"The first step toward solving the problems we face is to replace the people who got us there in the first place. New Hampshire has an opportunity to take a big step in that direction by electing Carol Shea-Porter for Congress."
