Congressman David Price has endorsed former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton for President.
In a statement released Tuesday Price says Clinton’s foreign policy experience, including laying the foundations for the Iran nuclear talks, separates her from the rest of the candidates for president.
Price says that Clinton is what our country needs to move to a more “prosperous and inclusive future” citing Clinton’s three decades of public service and her work “addressing the causes of inequality.” Price also lists Clinton’s efforts on issues such as expanding economic opportunity, improving education and health care and alleviating poverty as additional reasons for his endorsement.
Price says that “we have made great progress over the past eight years” and that “Hillary Clinton is the best candidate to continue this work.”
Price endorsed then-Senator Barack Obama in the 2008 election.
Price is the US Representative for North Carolina’s 4th District, serving parts of Raleigh and Durham and all of Chapel Hill. He is now serving in his 14th term in Congress. He is the ranking Democrat on the Transportation, Housing and Urban Development Appropriations Subcommittee, and Ranking Member and former Chairman of the House Democracy Partnership.
Price’s full statement here:
“Hillary Clinton is the experienced, principled leader we need to continue moving our country toward a more prosperous and inclusive future. In her three decades of public service, she has maintained a steady focus on addressing the causes of inequality: expanding economic opportunity, improving education, making quality health care and housing accessible and affordable, alleviating poverty. In this campaign, she has put forward bold and convincing proposals to deal with gun violence, financial system abuses, big money in politics, mass incarceration, wage stagnation, and access to college.”
“Her foreign policy experience is unmatched by any other candidate in the field. She is well-prepared to be Commander-in-Chief, but fully understands the power of diplomacy and has the record as Secretary of State to prove it — establishing the foundations of the Iran nuclear agreement and a global approach to climate change, and making women’s and LGBT rights, freedom of information, and economic and political inclusion integral to American foreign policy.”
“We have made great progress over the past eight years, but the work of building an America that delivers on its promise of liberty and justice for all must continue. I believe that Hillary Clinton is the best candidate to continue this critical work and to guide our nation through the many challenges ahead.”
