Front Runner Tsongas Calls For
Immediate Withdrawal from Iraq
Tom Duggan, The Valley Patriot
Tsongas is seeking to replace Marty Meehan who abandoned his position in congress to take a job at the University of Massachusetts after denying to The Valley Patriot that he was even looking to leave his elected post in Washington.
Shannon said he had had many opportunities to work with Tsongas on various projects troughout the years, adding “the number one priority has to be [to] send a strong voice to Washington and stop wasting the millions in the middle east and bring them home where they can do more good.”
Tsongas of said her number one priority, “it is clear to me that we can no longer pursue a policy of folly in Iraq. And as a member of congress, if elected, I would commit to ending that war and ending it now so we can no longer …” the applause in the room was so loud that Tsongas could to be heard finishing her sentence.
