Fighting DemsNumber of war veterans running for Congress as Republicans: 2.
Number of war veterans running as Democrats: 35.
More than 30 Iraq and Persian Gulf War veterans have entered congressional races across the country as Democrats, hoping to capitalize on their military experience to topple the incumbent Republican majority.Just something you might like to point out to neocons who repeat the tired old meme that liberals are weak on national security. Swift Boaters may have sidelined Kerry's chances but just let them try the same dirty tricks on these 35 who are definitely no John Kerrys when it comes to defending their military service (just ask Ohio's Paul Hackett).
More on the fighting Dems at the Majority Report on Air America and Daily Kos.
DavidNYC is part of a PAC supporting the Fighting Dems called Band of Brothers.
