One Comment

  • I find it very disappointing that Sam Graves is being supported in District 6 for federal representative. Democrat Henry Martin, a former union member, who supports working families is running against him. He has been endorsed by other unions and will look out for the best interest of families in the 6th district. As the vice-chair of my county Democratic committee, and the wife of a retired union laborer, I’m saddened by this endorsement of a candidate who has barely been seen in his district since 2006.
