|WILLIE NELSON ENDORSES KUCINICH FOR PRESIDENT
One of the most beloved figures in popular music and culture has
endorsed the populist presidential candidate, Dennis Kucinich.
STATEMENT FROM WILLIE NELSON
"I am endorsing Dennis Kucinich for President because he stands up for
heartland Americans who are too often overlooked and unheard. He has
done that his whole political career. Big corporations are
well-represented in Washington, but Dennis Kucinich is a rare
Congressman of conscience and bravery who fights for the unrepresented,
much like the late Senator Paul Wellstone. Dennis champions individual
privacy, safe food laws and family farmers. A Kucinich Administration
will put the interests of America's family farmers, consumers and
environment above the greed of industrial agribusiness.
"I normally do not get too heavily involved in politics, but this is
more about getting involved with America than with politics. I encourage
people to learn more about Dennis Kucinich at http://www.kucinich.us and
I will be doing all I can to raise his profile with voters. I plan to do
concerts to benefit the campaign."
(This is an individual endorsement and does not reflect the views of any
"It's an honor," commented Rep. Kucinich, "to earn the support of a man
who has come to symbolize the best values of America."
"ON THE ROAD AGAIN": With Willie Nelson's endorsement, momentum
continues to build for our insurgent campaign -- as we increase our
support base, our volunteer base, our endorsements and fundraising.
RALPH NADER, on last night's CNN Crossfire, said: "If Dennis Kucinich
gets the nomination, it'll be less reason to have a third-party
challenge. He's a very progressive Democrat..."
Dare to dream. We can win this nomination. With so many candidates in
the race, everyone is a long shot, not just us. To see why KUCINICH WILL
