Sherrod Brown Endorses Ken Harbaugh

"I am proud to endorse Ken Harbaugh for Congress," said Brown. "A former U.S. Navy pilot and president of an emergency aid organization, Ken knows what it means to lead and serve -- both in and out of uniform. Special interests and pressure from party leaders are no match for Ken’s uncommon courage and integrity. Ken is a fighter for policies that reflect the values he's developed throughout his life of service -- like affordable health care and an economy that values hard work like it used to. The 7th District, Ohio and our nation will be better off when Ken Harbaugh is elected to Congress."

Brown: "Special interests and pressure from party leaders are no match for Ken’s uncommon courage and integrity."

Canton, OH -- Today, Senator Sherrod Brown (D-OH) announced his endorsement of Ken Harbaugh who is running to represent the OH-7 Congressional District.

"I am proud to endorse Ken Harbaugh for Congress," said Brown. "A former U.S. Navy pilot and president of an emergency aid organization, Ken knows what it means to lead and serve -- both in and out of uniform. Special interests and pressure from party leaders are no match for Ken’s uncommon courage and integrity. Ken is a fighter for policies that reflect the values he's developed throughout his life of service -- like affordable health care and an economy that values hard work like it used to. The 7th District, Ohio and our nation will be better off when Ken Harbaugh is elected to Congress."

Ken Harbaugh was quick to express his gratitude to the Senator for this vote of confidence:

“When I was a pilot in the U.S. Navy, my team knew that there were a handful of folks in DC who had our backs.  Amid all of the partisan sniping and grandstanding, there were those who stood above the fray and supported the sacrifices of military men and women.  Sherrod Brown was a leader we knew we could count on, even if Washington as a whole failed.  Senator Brown has been a tireless champion of veterans both on the front lines and here at home.  I am honored to have his endorsement,” said Ken Harbaugh.

Background

Ken Harbaugh is a former Navy pilot, and an Ohioan who has made public service his life’s work. He grew up in a military family, the son and grandson of Air Force combat pilots. When it was his turn, Ken joined the Navy where he flew reconnaissance missions in the Middle East and off of North Korea. Following his naval service, he earned a J.D. from Yale Law School and co-founded The Mission Continues, a nonprofit that empowers military men and women to keep serving in their communities. Ken is the past President of Team Rubicon Global, a disaster relief organization that has trained over 45,000 veterans to deploy in emergency response teams around the world.

Ken is not a politician. He’s a public servant who believes in country over partyservice above self, and opportunity for all. And as a military vet, Ken is uniquely positioned to enter the fray. He is fearless, cool-headed in a crisis, and has earned the respect of leaders on both sides of the aisle.

As Americans, we talk a lot about the rights of citizenship, but just as important are the responsibilities.  For our country to move forward, its citizens must engage. Ken is ready to take on this challenge.
