Vote Vets Endorses Harbaugh For Congreess

“Ken understands the responsibilities of citizenship, and when his country and community called, he was there,” said Rick Hegdahl, veterans outreach director for VoteVets. “Now when his community needs him, he’s stepping up again. Washington is broken, and the people of Ohio need more champions in Congress to help make our government work for them again. Ken’s just the guy to help get that done. We can’t wait to work with him as a Congressman.”

VoteVets endorses Harbaugh for Congress
The largest progressive veterans group in America, VoteVets PAC, is endorsing Ken Harbaugh for Congress in Ohio's 7th District.
 
“Ken understands the responsibilities of citizenship, and when his country and community called, he was there,” said Rick Hegdahl, veterans outreach director for VoteVets. “Now when his community needs him, he’s stepping up again. Washington is broken, and the people of Ohio need more champions in Congress to help make our government work for them again. Ken’s just the guy to help get that done. We can’t wait to work with him as a Congressman.”
 
Ken Harbaugh grew up in a military family, the son and grandson of Air Force combat pilots. As a Navy pilot, Ken served as an aircraft commander, leading classified combat reconnaissance missions in support of Operations Enduring Freedom and Southern Watch.
 
Ken co-founded The Mission Continues, a nonprofit that empowers military men and women to keep serving in their communities. And he was most recently the 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.
 
Founded in 2006, the mission of VoteVets.org Political Action Committee is to elect veterans to public office with a focus on Iraq and Afghanistan veterans and hold public officials accountable for their words and actions that impact America's 21st-century troops and veterans. Though VoteVets.org PAC is nonpartisan, candidates it backs must support VoteVets.org's core mission and beliefs.
