The political action committee for VoteVets.org, a group representing veterans of the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, announced today its endorsement of State College native Bill Cahir, a Marine Corps veteran of two tours in Iraq.
Cahir, a sergeant in the Marine Corps Reserve, is the only veteran running for office in Pennsylvania's 5th Congressional District. He is one of three candidates seeking the Democratic nomination. Nine others are competing for the Republican nomination.
Cahir received a $1,000 contribution from the VoteVets.org PAC in conjunction with the endorsement.
