General Wesley Clark Endorses Larry LaRocco for U.S. Senate

Washington, DC — General Wesley Clark, 2004 Presidential candidate, today endorsed former Congressman and fellow Army veteran, Larry LaRocco, for the U.S. Senate in Idaho.

“Larry is a seasoned, experienced leader who will bring the change we need to the U.S. Senate,” said Clark. “He served with distinction, not only in our military but also in Congress, and he can win this race. It is wide open.”

“LaRocco is the kind of plain speaking, common sense western Democrat whom America needs. He believes in keeping America safe by fighting the real war on terror, not wasting lives or eviscerating our military, with a Bush blank check in Iraq, “Clark said.

“LaRocco doesn’t hesitate to speak his mind,” said Clark, “but his solid judgment and proven ability to bring people together will result in real progress in Congress. Larry’s campaign of working in jobs all across Idaho has him listening to people in every corner of the state and walking the walk in their shoes.”

“Larry was a great Congressman and will make a great Senator for Idaho. I am proud to endorse him today for the U.S Senate.”

In 1997 General Clark was appointed Supreme Allied Commander of NATO during the war in Kosovo and helped negotiate the Dayton Peace Accords ending the war in the Balkans.
