General Wes Clark, retired four-star general and former Supreme Allied Commander of NATO Europe, has endorsed Mary Beth Harrell for Congress.
General Clark said he is endorsing Mary Beth because she “has taken a strong stand on the Iraq War and will never support any exit strategy that squanders her son’s service in Iraq nor dishonors her husband’s long service to our country. She will stand for crafting and implementing an exit strategy that protects our national interests and brings our soldiers home as soon as possible by setting achievable benchmarks for the Iraqi government.”
And General Clark noted that Mary Beth “will also ask the tough questions. The Bush Administration said that the Iraq War would be paid for by Iraqi oil. The newest budget presented to Congress calls for half a trillion dollars to pay for this war.”
“Harrell will be a strong voice in Washington to clear up these discrepancies between rhetoric and reality.” – Gen. Wes Clark
You know that Mary Beth’s opponent has called the Iraq War “a huge success” and has been a rubberstamp for failed policies and failed civilian leadeship.
“Sending Mary Beth Harrell to Washington, D.C. will guarantee that mainstream values are once again represented in Congress. MaryBeth Harrell represents the best of everything America is. She will make our country proud,” said General Wesley Clark.
Strong words of praise and support from General Wes Clark, a career soldier who has served his country with extraordinary distinction and honor.
