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.

  1. I’d rather have the 8th Congressional district represented by someone born in Delaware County who stands for keeping government working, and working for middle and working class, than a Bucks native like Mike Fitzpatrick who toes the hard-right line and supports further tax breaks for the rich at the expense of economic growth and more jobs.

  2. It takes a particulary warped point of view to argue that President Obama used veterans as pawns in the budget battle. In fact, it’s clear that the Republicans exploited their protests, which were misdirected at the real culprits for all national parks and memorials to be closed down — Congressional Republicans who were trying to blackmail America into subverting our constitutional legislative system with threats that would have effectively destroyed the US and global economy.

  3. Until Mr. Strouse comes out and admonishes this President for using veterans and the veteran memorials as political pawns in the budget fight I will have no respect for him. STand up for veterans KEvin and call out this President or go back to Delaware county where you’re from.
