David Castillo Endorsed by National Defense PAC

by lewwaters

Republican, David Castillo, candidate for Washington State 3rd Congressional District, the first to begin campaigning against now retiring Democrat, Brian Baird, has picked up yet another important national endorsement from the National Defense PAC.

The PAC’s stated mission is;

“supporting the election of balanced-budget-committed Military Veterans to the U. S. Congress. We seek Military Veterans running for elected office who believe in limited government, will rein in the out of control spending of Congress, are committed to preserving and defending the US Constitution, and will support the independence and freedom of the individual as outlined in the Bill of Rights. Our purpose is to support Military Veterans for election to Congress who are dedicated to promoting the Free Enterprise System that created the greatest economic engine in the history of Planet Earth, who will CUT SPENDING and commit to the premise that raising taxes is not the answer to our spiraling national plunge towards bankruptcy. We sponsor candidates who will provide for a strong national defense and strong effective homeland security, work tirelessly to ensure illegal aliens are prevented from crossing our national borders and are deported when they do, and who will endorse the teaching of accurate US history and the Founding Fathers’ core values in educational institutions.”

In announcing the endorsement, Rear Admiral [Ret.] James J. Carey, USN – National Chairman & Treasurer said,

“David Castillo has NATIONAL DEFENSE PAC’s full support for election to the U.S. Congress. He served our country in the U.S. Navy, putting himself on the line to defend our nation when called, and is committed to keeping the promises made to our veterans when they agreed to risk their lives to face America’s enemies. David is who we want in Congress making decisions that impact our military veterans and today’s young Americans serving in our Armed Forces. He, as a Navy veteran, understands what it takes to train, fight and win. He also understands the importance of ensuring the decision to commit our military is right before we send our Nation’s most precious asset, our sons and daughters, into harm’s way.”

Of note, National Defense PAC Executive Director US Army Colonel (Ret.) Craig Carlson added,

“NATIONAL DEFENSE PAC has earned a reputation for endorsing winning candidates because we back men and women that have proven integrity forged in patriotic selfless military service. The American people trust our military and vote for our candidates. Our goal in 2010 is to endorse as many candidates that can meet our standard, and elect them all.”

David Castillo, a man from humble beginnings who came to sit across the desk from President George W. Bush, serving in sub-cabinet level positions in his Department of veterans Affairs and Department of Homeland Security, has amassed one of the most impressive list of major endorsements for office I have seen.

He continues to express specific ideas and values to turn our country around and grow out of the economic morass we find ourselves in that at times even has the Democratic Candidate, Denny Heck often in agreement with him.

Although running as a Republican, Castillo does not enjoy the party establishment backing and has been the subject of questionable tactics in favor of the party establishment candidate, who waited to enter the race less than 2 hours after Congressman Baird announced his retirement in December 2009.

Castillo continues to build support in the old fashioned grassroots style of spending much of his time on the road meeting voters one on one and laying out his vision for the office.

His service to the Bush Administration gives him a unique insight no other candidate currently seeking this office can share when it comes to caring for our Veterans, National Defense and working with other federal officials.

His beginnings in poverty give him the necessary background to see what is happening in our country from the perspective of the common taxpaying citizen struggling to care for their family.

As I said at the Rob McKenna Breakfast held for Castillo the morning of July 27, David Castillo remains the best chance I have seen in many years for the Republicans to gain this seat on Congress long held by the Democrats.
