The Combat Veterans For Congress PAC is pleased to endorse Cpt Randy Loftin,
USAR who will bring to Congress private sector skills and wisdom to better solve problems
in government and represent the 5th Congressional District of California. If you review
Cpt Loftin’s positions on his Web site, you would be pleased with his stands;
they agree with the Combat Veterans For Congress Mission Statement. We look forward
to working with Randy Loftin’s, and are pleased that a Combat Veteran of his caliber
is running for Congress. If you have friends, associates, or relatives who know voters in
the 5th Congressional District of California, kindly pass this E-mail on to them, and ask
them to support Randy Loftin by working in his campaign, providing financial support
for his campaign in any amount, and/or by networking with others who would be willing
to support his campaign. The military is one of the few remaining institutions producing
the caliber of men and women needed to restore this nation to the greatness our Founding
Fathers envisioned. We have endorsed another Combat Veteran For Congress that
General George Washington would have approved of. He is a Veteran who, at one point
in his life, wrote a blank check made payable to “The United States of America” for an
amount “up to and including his life.”
