By Congressman Lacy Clay (D) Missouri
“Progressive politics, positive leadership
for Missouri’s 1st Congressional District“
E-DAY MINUS 8 AND SPRINTING TO VICTORY ON TUESDAY, AUGUST 2nd!!!!!!!!!!
Welcome to this special guess whose about to turn 60-years old,edition of “Backbone.”
Backbone question of the week:
What is the greatest birthday present I have ever received?
(My birthday is Wednesday.)
Answer…a personal endorsement from the President of the United States.
That’s right, you heard me, earlier today, President Obama released this statement.
STATEMENT BY PRESIDENT BARACK OBAMA
“Since the earliest days of my first presidential campaign, Congressman Lacy Clay has stood with me.
And today, I’m proud to stand with him in support of his reelection on Tuesday, Aug 2nd in Missouri’s Democratic Primary.
Lacy Clay has been a fearless progressive voice with backbone who stood with me against the Republican assault on Medicare and Social Security, and who defended women’s rights to make their own healthcare decisions.
Lacy has also courageously stood up to the gun lobby to demand common sense gun safety measures like universal background checks and renewing the assault weapons ban…and Congressman Clay has led the way on criminal justice reform and transforming how local law enforcement interacts with the citizens they are sworn to protect.
Congressman Lacy Clay is clearly the best choice in Missouri’s 1st Congressional District to continue fighting for the inclusive, tolerant, brighter future that we are striving together to build for every American.
I’m proud to strongly endorse his re-election.”
Thank you Mr. President, I am truly humbled and honored to have earned your support. I’ve been proud to fight side-by-side with you to help you pass and then defend all of the remarkable progress that you have achieved for this country, and I am truly blessed to call you my friend.
