As mcjoan notes in her post The Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee has added Peter Goldmark to its highly prized slate of red to blue candidates and emerging races.
As the DCCC notes in its weblog, the Stakeholder, Peter Goldmark (WA-5) has been added to a select list of 15 candidates on the emerging list. Washington State’s Darcy Burner (WA-8) is also on the list of red to blue candidates, having been selected in the first wave of candidates.
“The DCCC Emerging Races list is made up of candidates who have taken traditionally non-competitive districts and, through the strength of their campaigns, put themselves in a position to win in November. Red to Blue and Emerging candidates all represent the new direction that American voters are searching for and all have pledged to put the priorities of middle class families first when they get to Washington.
“With less than two months to go, the DCCC is excited to give our top candidates the necessary strategic and financial boost they will need to win in November,” said Congressman Rahm Emanuel, Chairman of the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee. “Americans are looking for new leadership and a new direction and these Democratic candidates will put middle-class families first when they get to Washington.”
Goldmark is making a strong appeal to farmers and ranchers. He is one himself and understands their situation. Unlike Morris, he wants to sit on the Agriculture Committee.
When I go back to Congress, I will be on the House Agriculture Committee, unlike my opponent. We need a strong voice in Congress that speaks out for agriculture and that will be at the table all the time,” he said. “Everybody who grows food and fuel deserves respect, recognition and, yes, help from the federal government when needed.”
