VoteVets Endorses Sean Barney for Congress

WILMINGTON, DE – The largest progressive group of veterans in America, VoteVets PAC, is today endorsing Sean Barney’s campaign for Congress in Delaware. 

“Service is in Sean's blood,” said Jon Soltz, Iraq War Veteran and Chairman of VoteVets PAC.  “From High School, Sean's committed his life to the service of others, and that includes his service in Iraq.  That's a special kind of person, and it is very, very rare in politics.  In a lot of ways, you could say his commitment to service is Biden-eque." 

According to his campaign bio, Sean enlisted in the Marine Corps after 9/11.  He fought in Fallujah, Iraq, where he was wounded in action and received the Purple Heart. In high school, he was recognized with the New York Times Young Citizens Award for his work creating a community service alliance of inner city and suburban youth called Everyday People. After college, responding to United States Senator Bill Bradley's call to put issues of economic opportunity and fairness back on the public agenda, Sean joined Bradley's staff, working his way up from driver to speechwriter. 

Founded in 2006, the mission of VoteVets.org Political Action Committee is to elect Veterans to public office, with a focus on Iraq and Afghanistan veterans, 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.
