PA-8: Strouse Picks Up PeacePAC Endorsement
It’s an especially good Veteran’s Day for former Army Ranger and current congressional candidate Kevin Strouse. The Afghan and Iraq War veteran’s campaign announced the endorsement of PeacePAC, the political arm of Council for a Livable World.
“Mr. Strouse is a former Army Ranger and combat veteran; he understands that common sense solutions are necessary to address America’s greatest security threats such as terrorism, Afghanistan and the Iranian and North Korean nuclear programs,” said Guy Stevens, Director of PeacePAC. “We are glad to offer our support to a great candidate and someone that will be a strong voice for common sense in Congress.”
“I’m honored to have the endorsement of PeacePAC, an organization that believes in solutions to address our nation’s security threats with direct diplomacy and international pressure,” Strouse responded. “The people of Pennsylvania deserve an advocate in Washington that will stand up and seek solutions over division.”
The Council for a Livable World is a non-partisan organization focused on national security and nuclear weapons proliferation. PeacePAC, their political action committee, was founded in 1981 and has endorsed 226 successful congressional campaigns since then. PeacePAC also supported Iraq War vet Patrick Murphy, who represented the 8th district from 2007 to 2011, in all his campaigns.
Strouse is running to represent the PA’s 8th district, a seat currently held by Rep. Mike Fitzpatrick (R-Bucks). The other Democratic candidate in the Democratic primary is chemist and businesswoman Shaughnessy Naughton.
