HOUSE MINORITY LEADER NANCY PELOSI ENDORSES
CONGRESSMAN ERIC SWALWELL FOR 2014 RE-ELECT
Calls Swalwell a champion for working families.
PLEASANTON—Today, House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi endorsed Congressman Eric Swalwell for re-election to the 15th Congressional District in 2014, “Working women and families in California’s 15th district have a champion in Congressman Eric Swalwell,” said Leader Pelosi. “In the Alameda County District Attorney’s Office, he fought tirelessly to assist and protect victims of domestic violence and human trafficking. In Congress, he has already proven a critical leader in the drive to strengthen the health and economic security of America’s middle class, from his stalwart support for a comprehensive Violence Against Women Act to equal pay for equal work to investments in the education of our children. Eric’s creativity, leadership, and determination are essential to advancing House Democrats’ core priorities: creating jobs, strengthening small businesses, and growing our economy. I am proud to stand with Eric Swalwell.”
“I am honored to have the support of Leader Pelosi,” said Swalwell. “I appreciate her guidance and support since my election to Congress and I look forward to working together to create local jobs through investment in technology and innovation, improving the well-being of our middle class and passing comprehensive immigration reform.”
