Northfield, MN (PRWEB) September 12, 2006 -- Congressman John Murtha (D-Penn.) will visit Minnesota to support Second District Congressional Candidate Coleen Rowley on Sunday, September 17th. Congressman Murtha is a 37-year Veteran of the U.S. Marine Corps who has served in the U.S. Congress since 1975. He has taken the lead in Washington by proposing to redeploy American troops in Iraq with a resolution widely known as “The Murtha Plan.”
Rowley noted, by way of contrast, that Kline’s continued praise for and defense of George Bush and Donald Rumsfeld is not playing well in the district. “Bush and Kline’s cumulative refusal to admit mistakes by “staying the course” comes at too high a cost to the country. So the race here in Minnesota’s 2nd District is shaping up as a key one that could help John Murtha re-take the Chairmanship of the Defense Appropriations Subcommittee and Jim Oberstar become the next Transportation Committee Chair.”
The public is invited to call Coleen Rowley’s campaign headquarters in Northfield at (507) 664-3850 for more information about Congressman Murtha’s visit.
