ANCA Endorses Adam Schiff for Re-Election to Congress

WASHINGTON–The Armenian National Committee of America (ANCA) announced on Wednesday that it has endorsed Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA) for re-election.

Schiff is the lead sponsor of the Armenian Genocide Resolution, H. Res. 252, and has led Congressional efforts to recognize the genocide and to press successive administrations to do the same.

“I deeply appreciate the endorsement by the ANCA,” Rep. Schiff said. “I consider it a moral obligation to pursue recognition for the 1.5 million victims of the Armenian Genocide, and in our national interest to ensure that Armenia receives the economic and security assistance necessary to ensure a better life for the Armenian people.”

“We are honored to endorse Rep. Adam Schiff in the 2010 Congressional elections and to offer our full support as he campaigns for re-election to the U.S. House of Representatives,” said ANCA Chairman Kenneth V. Hachikian.

“We are especially appreciative of Rep. Schiff’s leadership role as the author and legislative champion of the Armenian Genocide Resolution. He has, in each of his terms in office, worked to build bipartisan support for this legislation and to move this measure through the committee process and toward a vote of the full House of Representatives.”

    We (my wife & I) already mailed our absentee ballots of course we did vote for Congressman Schiff, since I’m sure we are not the only ones voting early; therefore I think ASBAREZ should start these announcements much earlier.
