From the John Douglass for Congress campaign. Also see the “flip” for a roundup of a few of the excellent endorsements John Douglass has received. Thanks.
I can tell you from working with General Douglass that our nation needs him in Congress. As my Assistant Secretary of the Navy, he helped us keep the Navy up to date and strong, turn deficits into surpluses and set up new job training programs. So I know he is ready to roll up his sleeves and get to work for the 5th District.
But we only have one week left to the election. In less than 24 hours, his campaign will make their final resource decisions to help turn his momentum into a win. That's where you come in.
John answered my call to serve all those years. Now I'm asking you to answer his call with a generous contribution before it's too late.
— President Bill Clinton
P.S. I can't wait to see John Douglass in Congress, because of what I first saw in him — a leader who cares too much about our fellow Americans not to take action. Show him your support in the next 24 hours.

ICYMI: President Clinton, Leaders Boost Douglass's Final Push
In case you missed it, President Clinton is just the latest high profile leader to lend their support to General John Douglass for Congress in Virginia’s Fifth District race. Others who have helped the campaign exceed their fundraising goals for the election include Senator Mark Warner, Senator Jim Webb, General Wesley Clark and Rear Admiral Joe Sestak. Here are the highlights from their endorsements:
President Clinton says, “I can tell you from working with General Douglass that our nation needs him in Congress. As my Assistant Secretary of the Navy, he helped us keep the Navy up to date and strong, turn deficits into surpluses and set up new job training programs.”
Senator Mark Warner says, “My friend General John Douglass has a real chance to turn the 5th district from red to blue.”
Senator Jim Webb says, “John's proven leadership will help bring Republicans and Democrats together to break the partisan gridlock that has blocked progress on so many important issues.”
General Wes Clark says, “I'm so proud to endorse my friend General John Douglass. We need more veterans in Congress, especially a flag officer like John who has worked with leaders in both parties for the good of our nation.”
Rear Admiral Joe Sestak says, “When Wes Clark, Senator Jim Webb, Secretary Bill Perry and Secretary Richard Danzig all are firmly behind John Douglass. You know he is what we need.”
Senator Creigh Deeds says, “It's a good thing we have my friend John — if anyone can overcome the odds, it's him. His drive to do right by other people has all of us truly inspired to do right by him in these final days.”
Terry McAuliffe says, “I can tell you that John's campaign has everyone talking because they are closing so strong. When I campaigned with him, I can see why — he has voters fired up and he's even bringing voters on the other side into the fold.”
Gen. John Douglass is running for Congress in the 5th District to help Virginia families get a fair chance at a better future after serving our country on President Reagan’s National Security Council and then as President Clinton’s Assistant Secretary of the Navy, before going on to promote air and space policies that grow our economy by creating manufacturing jobs and keeping our skies safe.
