The Veterans for Responsible Leadership, a group of U.S. military veterans dedicated to promoting integrity, sobriety and civility in public office and supporting candidates committed to those principles, has announced it is endorsing Colonel Moe Davis (USAF, Ret.) for Congress in North Carolina’s 11th District.
The VFRL joins VoteVets, Veterans and Military Families for Progress, Common Defense and ServeAmerica PAC among veteran-focused organizations that have endorsed Col. Davis, a 25-year veteran.
“VFRL endorses candidates who exhibit a commitment to the VFRL mission,’’ the organization wrote in a statement released on Friday. “VFRL is especially supportive of candidates who are veterans or have a background in public service focused on national security.”
Colonel Davis has an extensive national security background. He was Chief Prosecutor for Terrorism Trials at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba. After retiring from the military, he served as National Security Specialist and director of the Foreign Affairs, Defense and Trade Division at the Congressional Research Service.
In addition to his 25 years in the military, Col. Davis also worked as a judge with the U.S. Department of Labor and has worked in public service for over 30 years in all.
“I’m grateful to receive an endorsement from the Veterans for Responsible Leadership,’’ Col. Davis said. “I am a veteran and I’m committed to the same values as the VFRL. We need integrity, decency and humanity in Washington, now more than ever. I look forward to representing the values of veterans when I get to Congress.”
