LETTER TO THE EDITOR: Vote for Senator Carper

U.S. Sen. Tom Carper has served this state and nation in an exemplary fashion for over four decades. He fights for quality education, affordable health care, our economy, and the environment. He supports Delaware’s farming community and our veterans, and advocates for safe drinking water, clean air, and beach replenishment. He has pushed to provide for the safe placement of unaccompanied youth fleeing extreme poverty and violence in their home countries, while at the same time prodding policymakers to address the root causes of undocumented migrants coming here for asylum. His campaign slogan, “Building Bridges, not Walls,” defines the leadership style of a senator of vast experience, high integrity, and distinguished service.

Sen. Carper works hard to hold the Trump administration accountable and has refused to vote for unqualified cabinet choices, opposed the repeal of the Affordable Care Act, Trump tax cuts for the wealthy, Trump’s decision to walk away from the Paris Accord and the Iran Deal, and challenges Trump and family’s conflicts of interest as regards their businesses.

Of utmost importance, he is working to protect Special Prosecutor Robert Mueller’s investigation into Russian interference in our election.

Sen. Carper has earned your vote in the Sept. 6 primaries and in the very important November midterm elections.
