STATEMENT OF THE STEVE YOUNG CAMPAIGN
With the December 6, 2005 California 48th District General Election just around the corner, Steve Young needs your help. As you may recall, Steve is running on the Democratic ticket against John Campbell (a Republican) to fill the vacancy created when Christopher Cox accepted an appointment by President Bush to head the Securities and Exchange Commission.
One of Steve's trademark initiatives is to support America's veterans and end the war in Iraq. Steve's first act in Congress would be to help other Democrats to force a Bill onto the floor increasing VA medical funding so that all veterans get health insurance and keep VA Hospitals open so all eligible veterans can be treated promptly. He would ensure we support our troops by making sure all veterans who fought for their country have health insurance that means something!
Steve Young is a progressive candidate doing the unthinkable, running a competitive race with a chance to win a Congressional seat in Orange County, the bastion of Republicanism just south of Los Angeles. The special election is set for December 6th and he needs your help urgently. You can contribute online at his website.
Randi Rhodes interviewed Steve the other day and called him "a Democrat with ideas!" and asked for America to get behind him.
