For Immediate Release
Golden Valley, AZ - Today is an historic day for the Mikel Weisser for US Congress campaign and for Democrats all across Arizona’s 4th congressional district. As of 11/6/13, Mikel Weisser has become the first Democrat in the 4th congressional district to raise enough money to file financial statements with the FEC. Having added professional congressional campaign staff and a robust fund-raising program, the 2014 Weisser campaign is poised to be the 1st major Democratic challenge to the Republican control of western Arizona. With hard work and diligence from Mikel Weisser, his campaign is stepping into a new territory on his quest to challenge Paul Gosar and his destructively wrong-headed policies. People in the 4th district are beginning to see that Representative Gosar and his Tea Party pals have no place in today’s Washington.Arizona's Fourth Congressional District, affectionately known as "the Left Coast of AZ," includes parts of 7 counties, or 9 legislative districts, and covers the western 1/3 of the state as well as rural Maricopa County, northern Gila County and the San Tan Valley area of Pinal County. Weisser himself, a former construction worker, history teacher, entertainer, and community activist, constantly travels this great district aiding local organizers and learning the needs of the people from Mohave to Yavapai to Pinal to Yuma counties and everywhere in between. Mikel is willing to answer the tough questions and ready to take on the challenge for the good of people. A voice for western & rural Arizona, Mikel Weisser's filing with the FEC, to launch a full-scale campaign, is just the start of showing the people of the 4th congressional district what kind of candidate he is.

For the last 40 years our country has been dominated by an extreme Republican Right. And they are dead wrong for America. Their experts claim to know what they're talking about, but they obviously don't know what they're doing. WMDs, deregulation, slashing social services, destroying education, militarizing the economy with tax cuts for their friends, poverty for the rest of us and all the while stifling the majority for their zealots and bigots. They're running scared, trying to turn back time. I want a country for the world we live in today. I want us to build a future. America is changing. Share your voice--
