President Obama endorses Julian Cyr

Underscores importance of local races to President's agenda
State Senate candidate Julian Cyr was today endorsed by President Obama

President Barack Obama has endorsed Julian Cyr, in his race for state Senate for the Cape and Islands district, according to a statement issued by the Cyr campaign this morning.

“We are thrilled that Barack Obama is endorsing our candidates in some of the most competitive races across the country,” said Jessica Post, Executive Director of the Democratic Legislative Campaign Committee. “His endorsement highlights how crucial state legislative elections are to building on the progress Obama has achieved and to continuing to move our nation forward.” 

"Receiving the endorsement of President Barack Obama in our state Senate race is a very deep honor.  I was inspired by the possibility of public service in Barack Obama's 2008 campaign and later cut my teeth as a grassroots organizer on the President's reelection effort,” said Julian Cyr. “I am so proud that our campaign honored President Obama's grassroots organizing tradition by going door-to-door, neighbor-to-neighbor to reach thousands of Cape & Islands voters. A tradition that lets every voter know that their voice matters in creating a brighter future for us all." welcomes thoughtful comments and the varied opinions of our readers.
