New Politics, a national organization that recruits and supports military veterans and national service alumni to run for public office, endorsed Jason Crow on Tuesday in his run for Congress in Colorado’s 6th Congressional District.
“Jason Crow is the kind of American who never hesitates to put himself on the line for others – who runs toward a problem when he sees one,” said Emily Cherniack, Executive Director and Founder of New Politics. “That’s how he’s dedicated his life, from enlisting in the National Guard to serve his country and help put himself through school, to serving three combat tours in Iraq and Afghanistan as an Army infantry officer and earning a Bronze Star, to helping lead the charge to bring the V.A. to Aurora. Washington today is full of career politicians who care more about their own political ambitions than the communities they serve, and in Jason, Colorado families have the opportunity to elect someone who will always put them first. Jason knows how to bring people together, focus on mission, and solve problems. We’re proud to support him and we can’t wait to see his servant leadership in Congress.”
