VoteVets PAC Endorses Doug Applegate for Congress
"Doug Applegate has service in his blood."
May 22, 2017 - The largest progressive group of veterans in America, VoteVets PAC, is today endorsing Doug Applegate for Congress, in California's 49th Congressional District.
“Doug Applegate has service in his blood. Given his smarts, he could have done anything, but he followed the path of his father – a World War II veteran – and joined the Marines,” said Jon Soltz, Iraq War Veteran and Chairman of VoteVets. “When his country needed him, Doug was there. When his community needs him, Doug is there. That kind of dedication, always putting others before himself, is so desperately needed in Washington. He’s going to be a tremendous Congressman for the 49th district.”
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 non-partisan, candidates it backs must support VoteVets.org's core mission and beliefs.
Douglas Applegate is a Colonel USMCR (retired). Use of his military rank, job titles, and photographs in uniform does not imply endorsement by the U.S. Marine Corps, the Department of the Navy, or the Department of Defense.
