A Ringing Endorsement from the Plain Dealer
E-mail Print PDF

Congresswoman Kaptur this evening received the endorsement of The (Cleveland) Plain Dealer, the state's largest newspaper, which cited her "...impressive record of getting things done."

"Kaptur's enormous margin among voters she has served for decades -- she got a mind-boggling 94 percent of the Democratic vote in Lucas County (in the primary) -- was testimony to how effective this unassuming, unpretentious woman has been on Capitol Hill," wrote the Plain Dealer editorial board.

"Kaptur has delivered on public works projects, large and small, and also has gone to bat for private employers trying to get government contracts. She stood up for the auto industry and manufacturing when many people, even in the Democratic Party, were ready to declare them dead."

The Plain Dealer cited her accomplishments over a career than has spanned three decades: "Kaptur has delivered on public works projects, large and small, and also has gone to bat for private employers trying to get government contracts. She stood up for the auto industry and manufacturing when many people, even in the Democratic Party, were ready to declare them dead."

And the editorial board expressed its view that Northeast Ohio needs a voice in Washington.  "With the country facing critical fiscal decisions by year's end, this region needs someone who can advocate for its interests, including infrastructure upgrades, protection of the Great Lakes and a secure future role for NASA Glenn Research Center and its Plum Brook testing station. As a senior member of both the Appropriations and Budget committees, Kaptur, 66, can be that advocate. Although we wish she would revisit her positions on trade and entitlement reform, Kaptur's impressive record of getting things done more than justifies her re-election."
