Letter: Thornton for Congress



I have three reasons to support Dee Thornton for the 5th Congressional District Democratic nomination:

  • Dee was a very effective candidate in the election of 2018. She ran a good campaign in a tough district against a well-established incumbent. She got about 44 percent of the vote – an outstanding achievement based entirely on her effort and the efforts of those whom she recruited in a district where Democrats felt without hope.
  • Dee researches issues. She is well-informed and asks excellent questions. I have met with her several times, and, each time I was thoroughly impressed with her focus and capability.
  • As I have heard from all across the district, Dee is able to win support from those who hear her speak. All she needs is a chance.

Dee Thornton knows the people of the district and their concerns. She offers the thoughtfulness and energy that will inspire others to develop new directions and renewed hope.
