The Combat Veterans For Congress PAC is endorsing the 78th Combat Veteran For Congress; he is a fiscally conservative candidate who will work to rein in the out of control spending by Congress and the Obama Administration; he is a strong supporter of the 2nd Amendment, an very strong advocate for the military personnel serving in the US Armed forces, believes in “Peace thru Strength”,  and will work tirelessly to rein in the out of control and irresponsible spending by the Obama Administration.  Major Chris Fields, USMC (Ret) (R-MN-5) of Minneapolis, Minnesota completed 21 years of honorable service in the US Marine Corps (10 of which were served overseas) is running for the Congressional seat in the 5th Congressional District of Minnesota.  He is running against Congressman Keith Ellison, a three term Democrat incumbent who is vehemently anti-American, voted to cut funding for the US military personnel in combat, attacked the Pledge Allegiance of the Flag, teamed with Barney Frank to undermine the free market, argued against inserting “God” in the official Democrat platform, and has been a Pelosi clone supporting the irresponsible out of control spending in Congress.   Most recently in a debate with Maj Fields, instead of engaging in a civil discourse, Congressman Ellison called Maj Fields a “low life scumbag” and a “gutter dweller”, said the GOP was a “bigoted party,” and also referred to Maj Fields as “stupid” and a “liar.”   Chris Fields was born in New York City, New York on August 22, 1967.  Chris graduated from Bronx Regional High School, and was the Valedictorian of his graduating class.  In June 2011, Chris graduated “Magna Cum Laude” from the Park University at the Camp Pendleton Campus with a Bachelor of Science Degree (BS) in Business Management with an emphasis on Finance.

The Combat Veterans For Congress PAC is pleased to endorse Maj Chris Fields, USMC (Ret) who will bring to Congress skills and wisdom to better solve problems in government and represent the 5th Congressional District of Minnesota. If you review Maj Field’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 Maj Field, 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 Minnesota, kindly pass this E-mail on to them, and ask them to support Maj Field 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.”
