Don Beyer’s newest television ad, which airs tomorrow, addresses the urgency of climate change and the former Lieutenant Governor’s intent to introduce a progressive carbon tax as part of the solution. Climate change “is a crisis and requires leadership,” Beyer says to the camera. “That’s why I support a carbon tax – the best solution for controlling greenhouse gases.”
The Humane Society Legislative Fund endorsed Don Beyer for Congress today, saying he was the best candidate in the field to “build on Jim Moran’s outstanding body of work on animal welfare … Voters who care about the humane treatment of animals should support Don Beyer for Congress.”
Presidential adviser David Axelrod today released a video endorsing Don Beyer for Congress, joining a group of top Obama advisers who have announced their support for the former Lieutenant Governor. “Don is a great public official, a great progressive champion … it is with great enthusiasm that I say that I’m for Don Beyer for Congress,” Axelrod says in the two-minute video, noting that he’s known Don since 2007 when Beyer and his family “were trudging around the snows of Iowa, working to elect a young senator named Barack Obama president of the United States.”
Please join Don, Megan and Team Beyer for a happy hour with special guests Melody Barnes, Jim Messina, Pete Rouse and Julianna Smoot on Thursday, May 22nd, 5:30 to 7:30 pm at Café Asia, 1550 Wilson Boulevard, Arlington, VA 22209.
