VoteVets Cheers Carbajal Win in California

SANTA BARBARA, CA - The largest progressive group of veterans in America, with over 400,000 supporters, VoteVets PAC is cheering the victory of one of its endorsed candidates, in last night’s primary - Salud Carbajal for California’s 24th District seat in Congress.  Carbajal was the top vote-getter in the open primary, and will move on to the general election.

“We are so proud to stand with Salud, and will do everything we can to ensure his victory in November,” said Jon Soltz, Iraq War Veteran, and Chairman of VoteVets PAC.

“Salud’s story is an American story,” he added.  “The child of an immigrant family, Salud worked hard in school and worked hard in jobs, to help support his family.  After making it through college, and grad school, Salud could have just looked out for himself, but he chose to serve his nation in the Marines, including during the first Gulf War.  He then continued to serve his community, helping at-risk youth, our seniors, and protecting our beautiful natural treasures and environment.  Now, he is choosing to continue his service.   That’s the very best of America, and what will help make him an incredibly effective public servant for the community, in Washington.”

Founded in 2006, the mission of VoteVets.org Political Action Committee is to elect Veterans to public office, and hold public officials accountable for their words and actions that impact America’s 21st century troops and veterans. Though VoteVets.org PAC is non-partisan, candidates it backs must support VoteVets.org’s core mission and beliefs.  Since its inception, in 2006, VoteVets PAC has raised and donated nearly $1 million for its endorsed candidates.
