I am very happy to receive this e-mail today from the former U.S. Senator and War Hero Max Cleland (D. GA) in support of Richard Cordray’s (D. OH) gubernatorial campaign:
I’ve spent my life fighting for veterans—first as a soldier in Vietnam, then as Administrator of Veterans Affairs, in the U.S. Senate, and finally in the Obama Administration as Secretary of the American Battle Monuments Commission.
That’s why I was so excited to learn that Rich Cordray was running for governor of Ohio. His work fighting for the rights of veterans speaks for itself. Just look at his record:
- As our Consumer Watchdog, Rich got $200 million back for service members and their families who had been cheated by unscrupulous predatory lenders.
- His office resolved an astounding 90,000 consumer complaints from veterans and their families.
- As State Treasurer of Ohio, Rich fought for a constitutional amendment for bonuses for men and women coming home after serving in the Persian Gulf, Afghanistan, and Iraq.
I’ve worked with veteran’s advocates all my life, and I know when someone is the real deal.
Onward to November,
Former U.S. Senator, Georgia
