FALLBROOK — Robert J. Hamilton’s campaign has received the endorsement of Washington, DC-based Veterans & Military Families for Progress (VMFP) in his bid to unseat incumbent Darrell Issa for the California 49th Congressional District in the United States House of Representatives.
In a national press release the VMFP stated, “Hamilton’s service to our country cannot be questioned… Hamilton’s strong commitment to the issues that are critical to veterans, those serving now, and their families is unsurpassed.
“His public support for mandatory full funding of the Veterans Administration and his declared determination to provide for the establishment of a national veterans and military family policy give veterans and their families hope that at long last a congressman will vote in such a way as to keep faith with those who have served and sacrificed.
“Additionally, Hamilton’s decision to support the passage of a 21st century GI bill, and his deep understanding of the need for providing and guaranteeing full health coverage for National Guard and Reserve personnel, demonstrate that he is a candidate who has the character and courage to do what is right for those in service to our country.
“We feel that veterans, active duty, military families, and in fact, all people of the 49th District of California will be well-served with Robert Hamilton as their representative by ensuring that America remains strong in national defense and in fighting terrorism.”
