VoteVets.org Will Endorse Doug Denneny

Tim Craig

VoteVets.org, a political action committee dedicated to helping candidates who oppose the Iraq war, will announce tomorrow they are endorsing Democrat Doug Denneny in the 11th congressional district race to replace Rep. Thomas M. Davis III (R), who is retiring.

Founded in 2006, VoteVets.org PAC takes credit for helping to elect four veterans to Congress that year, including Reps. Patrick Murphy, Joe Sestak and Chris Carney, all Democrats from Pennsylvania. The group also aired a television ad in 2006 aimed at helping Virginia Sen. James Webb in his race against Republican George Allen. The controversial ad, which featured a man shooting into a bullet-proof vest, implied that Allen voted against funding body armor for troops in Iraq when he was in the Senate.

Denneny, a retired naval commander, is running against Fairfax County Board Chairman Gerald E. Connolly, former Rep. Leslie L. Byrne and community activist Lori Alexander for the Democratic nomination.
