House Majority Leader Visits To Support Campaign Against Schmidt
Cincinnati – On Thursday, March 20th, United States House Majority Leader Steny Hoyer will visit Cincinnati and appear as the guest of honor at a fundraiser in support of Congressional candidate Dr. Victoria Wulsin.
Hoyer, who represents the 5th District in Maryland, is in his second year as Majority Leader after serving two terms as the Democratic Whip.
Wulsin finished the March primary strong, winning by a wider margin and with over 14,000 more votes than her opponent, Jean Schmidt. Wulsin is preparing for a rematch against Schmidt this fall as she picks up national support and attention from Congressman Hoyer.
“I am honored to have the support of the Majority Leader,” said Wulsin. “He believes in my efforts to bring change to Washington. With his help, we can work together with other members of Congress to address our nation’s most difficult issues: our struggling economy, rising gas prices, affordable healthcare and ending the war in Iraq.”
