January 9, 2008
Nevada’s Congressional Representative Shelley Berkley said today she will lend her experience, knowledge, and influence to Sen.Clinton’s historic run for the White House.
“When I first met Hillary years ago I was struck by the depth of her caring and knowledge of the concerns of my fellow Nevadans. And I have always been impressed that she is ready, able, and willing to take action. Her record against Yucca Mountain is 100% on the side of Nevada. I know first hand her tenacious advocacy for family health care, veteran’s services, education, and affordable housing. – and have no doubt Hillary Clinton has the strength, knowledge, courage, and vision to be a president who will lead by action to solve our great challenges at home and abroad.”
Representing Nevada’s first Congressional district, Rep. Shelley Berkley is currently serving her fifth term in Congress, where she serves on the House Committees on Ways and Means and Veterans’ Affairs.
