Wauwatosa – The national organization of Progressive Democrats of America has officially endorsed Chris Rockwood‘s campaign to become the United States Representative to Wisconsin’s 5th Congressional District.
According to its mission statement, Progressive Democrats of America was founded in 2004 to transform the Democratic Party and our country. The organization seeks to build a party and government controlled by citizens, not corporate elites – with policies that serve the broad public interest, not just private interests.
The endorsement announcement by Executive Co-Directors Conor Boylan and Andrea Miller states, “Chris will be a progressive champion for our issues if we just make grass roots democracy work, by doing what it takes to insure this victory.” 
James Carpenter, the Progressive Democrats of America member who submitted Rockwood for endorsement, gave credit to the candidate’s positions. “As a professional trained in engineering, Chris understands that global warming is real and needs to be addressed immediately,” Carpenter explained. “He understands numbers and recognizes that a Medicare-for-All system can greatly reduce our health care costs. His commitment to reducing wasteful military spending fits right in with PDA’s motto: Healthcare not Warfare.”
“This is wonderful, and I appreciate it very much,” Rockwood said. “Everyone is very excited,” added Robert Hansen, Rockwood’s Campaign Manager. “We now have the best phone bank team in the country making calls for us. That alone is huge.”
The general election for Wisconsin’s 5th Congressional District is November 4, 2014.
