Veterans group points to military service, supports political outsider committed to restoring America’s prosperity
LAS VEGAS—Concerned Veterans for America Action (CVA Action) on Wednesday announced its endorsement of Colonel (Ret.) Mark Robertson for election to represent Nevada’s 1st Congressional District in the U.S. House of Representatives.
Robertson, a retired U.S. Army Reserve Colonel, who dedicated 30 years of military service to his country, will bring a unique perspective to Washington as a political outsider. As a veteran and longtime Nevada resident, Robertson is prepared to fight for a more prosperous nation on behalf of every Nevadan, veteran, service member, and military family member.
CVA Action will lean on a variety of tactics—including its signature grassroots army—to support Robertson’s election to Congress.
Leo Garcia, CVA Action Advisor, had this to say about the endorsement:
“Mark Robertson is a political outsider and principled leader who doesn’t have any agenda except to do right by the Nevadans he is elected to serve. Robertson knows what is at stake for the country this election, and will lean on his years of service in uniform, dedication to duty, and commitment to putting others ahead of himself to bring fresh air to the stale status quo of Washington politics.
“A veteran himself, he knows the barriers veterans face when they return home and will work to ensure veterans enjoy more health care options and can get the care they need—when and where they need it. Additionally, from firsthand experience on the front lines in Afghanistan and Iraq, he understands the consequences of America’s seemingly endless wars. He is dedicated to reshaping a better American foreign policy, one that does not continue to put our men and women in uniform unnecessarily in harm’s way or squander taxpayer dollars on risky interventions that do little to advance U.S. interests. Further, Robertson’s commitment to curb reckless spending will bring crucial discipline to Washington at a time when runaway inflation impacts veterans and all Americans.
“Robertson is the best candidate to represent Nevada’s 1st Congressional District in Washington. Nevadans deserve a leader dedicated to securing the freedom and liberty he and our nation’s veterans fought and sacrificed to defend. Mark Robertson is that leader. CVA Action urges Nevada’s veterans, military families, and residents of Nevada’s 1st Congressional District to vote for Colonel Mark Robertson in November. Our nation’s future depends on it.”
CVA Action is dedicated to electing candidates based on their active leadership roles on top policy priorities to improve the lives of our nation’s veterans and all Americans.
