Linda Stender: A woman who belongs in Congress

In 2006, Linda Stender came within a heartbreaking 4000 votes to beat Mike Ferguson (R) in my district, NJ-07. Linda is a wonderful progressive Democrat that any of us would be proud to see in the House of Representatives. This year, Mike Ferguson is quitting his seat and Linda has a better chance of succeeding him. She is doing her best to maintain neutrality between Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton and I respect her for that. But I would like to give you a small sample of what makes this candidate so impressive. This clip from her closing remarks from her 2006 debate against Mike Ferguson goes out to WigWag and hlr and everyone who wants desperately to vote for a true Democrat this year:

A Message from Linda, my soon-to-be Congresswoman in NJ-07

Friends, here is a message from one of my favorite Democrats, Linda Stender, who is running for Congress for my district NJ-07. This woman understands what we’re up against and the importance of solidarity. Here’s the money quote:

I will be proud to see my name on the ballot in November alongside either Clinton or Obama. I know with either one of them in the White House, I will have a powerful ally as I take on the key issues of our time. Getting our troops out of Iraq, making sure that all Americans have access to healthcare, confronting the perils of global warming, and investing in stem cell research.

This woman will make us proud in the Congress. Linda is truly a better Democrat.  In 2006, she came within less than 4000 votes of beating Santorum-Wannabe, Mike Ferguson.  She has the intelligence and fire to win this district in November.  Let’s hear it for Linda, who knows there is power in a union.
