Dal LaMagna is announcing his candidacy for the Democratic nomination for the U.S. Presidency tomorrow, Wednesday, July 18, in Concord, New Hampshire.  The announcement will be held at 11:00 a.m. at the Barley House, 132 North Main Street, Concord, NH. 

LaMagna is a progressive businessman, the founder of the Progressive Government Initiative, and the executive producer of three documentary films about the Iraq war: The War Tapes, Iraq for Sale, and The Ground Truth.

LaMagna is expected to discuss what he has learned from numerous meetings with U.S. generals, Iraqi members of Parliament, Iraqi clerics, tribal sheiks, and citizens over the past six months. He is also expected to share some video clips of these meetings that highlight suggestions for ending the violence.

LaMagna advocates immediate announcement that all troops will be withdrawn from Iraq according to a timeline negotiated with the Iraqi Government..  "Most Iraqis I've heard from tell me they want us to leave, they can take care themselves, there won't be civil war," LaMagna says in an ad that begins airing on New Hampshire TV stations Wednesday night.

During his announcement, LaMagna will tell Americans what they can do to accelerate the beginning of the end of the violence in Iraq against our troops and Iraqis.

In 1980, LaMagna founded Tweezerman, a company where he practiced responsible capitalism and where each employee was an owner.  Starting from nothing, LaMagna built Tweezerman into a successful multinational corporation. 

Beginning at 6:00 a.m. on Wednesday, LaMagna's announcement speech can be read in its entirety via his campaign website,
