WILLIE NELSON ENDORSES CONGRESSMAN
DENNIS KUCINICH FOR PRESIDENT
One of the most beloved figures in popular music and culture is
endorsing the populist candidate, Dennis Kucinich.
Statement from Willie Nelson
"I am endorsing Dennis Kucinich for President because he stands up for
heartland Americans who are too often overlooked and unheard. He has
done that his whole political career. Big corporations are
well-represented in Washington, but Dennis Kucinich is a rare
Congressman of conscience and bravery who fights for the unrepresented,
much like the late Senator Paul Wellstone. Dennis champions individual
privacy, safe food laws and family farmers. A Kucinich Administration
will put the interests of America's family farmers, consumers and
environment above the greed of industrial agribusiness.
"I normally do not get too heavily involved in politics, but this is
more about getting involved with America than with politics. I
encourage people to learn more about Dennis Kucinich at
http://www.kucinich.us and I will be doing all I can to raise his
profile with voters. I plan to do concerts to benefit the campaign."

"It's an honor," commented Rep. Kucinich, "to earn the support of a man
who has come to symbolize the best values of America." Kucinich is a
four-term member of Congress from Ohio, co-chair of the Congressional
Progressive Caucus, and leading critic in Washington of the Bush
Administration's foreign and domestic policies.
