Democratic Advancement PAC (DAPAC) endorses Staten Island/Southwest Brooklyn Congressional candidate

(Seattle, WA) National Democratic Organization, the Democratic Advancement PAC (DAPAC) is endorsing NY 13th Congressional district candidate (Staten Island/Southwest Brooklyn) Steve Harrison, who is running against Vito Fossella, New York City’s only House Republican. Against Fossella in 2006, Harrison received a higher percentage of the vote than any Democrat ever under the Congressional District’s current configuration.

DAPAC’S mission is to help progressive Democratic Candidates run and win. They provide tactical and strategic support for their endorsed candidates, including fundraising and getting out the vote (GOTV) expertise. DAPAC has generated over 250,000 phone calls on behalf of the candidates they support.

“Harrison supports taking immediate steps to end the war in Iraq, publicly funded, single payer, universal healthcare and strong environmental protection,” says DAPAC President Tom Cramer. “He has pledged to vote for these crucial issues once in Congress. DAPAC is proud to add him as a newly endorsed candidate.”

DAPAC has endorsed only six 2008 Congressional candidates besides Harrison thus far. Among them is Sam Bennett (PA 15th), who along with Harrison were among the “Responsible Plan to End the War in Iraq’s” original 10 endorsers (responsibleplan.com). The Responsible Plan, which has received national broadcast, print and online media coverage, outlines a detailed approach to end the war. Among DAPAC’s previous endorsees is Democratic Congressional Committee Chair (DCCC) Chris Van Hollen.
