Ben Rhodes, President Obama’s former Deputy National Security Adviser, Endorses Jessica Morse for California’s Fourth Congressional District

Roseville, CA...Today, Ben Rhodes, who served eight years dedicated to protecting America alongside President Obama while serving as his Deputy National Security Adviser, emphatically endorsed Jessica Morse today for Congress in California’s 4th Congressional District. “At this dangerous moment, Congress needs more leaders who are willing to defend American values, inspire others to get involved, and put our country’s long-term interests ahead of their personal ones,” Rhodes declared. “Jessica Morse is that kind of leader.”




Taking note of Morse’s accomplishments with the U.S. Agency for International Development in Iraq and at the Pentagon’s U.S. Pacific Command in drafting a strategy to advance the U.S.-India defense relationship, Rhodes continued:

“Jessica showed personal courage. As a young person, she went to an Iraq that was still rife with conflict. Jessica showed creativity. While at PACOM, she developed an innovative approach - using renewable energy - as a way to advance the U.S.-India defense relationship, which was a top national security priority for the Obama Administration. She drafted a strategy and built a coalition of people across the government to get that done, which is what we need more of from Congress today.”

Rhodes highlights Morse’s willingness to put her nation first, saying, “we are lucky, as a country, that there is a generation of Americans who signed up to serve in various capacities after 9/11. Jessica Morse did the type of jobs that don’t always get the spotlight, but they make the difference. She has a perspective that doesn’t just come from Washington, it comes from the field.”

Jessica Morse thanked Rhodes for his endorsement.

“I am deeply honored by Ben’s support for my candidacy. His role, starting at a young age, as one of the leading foreign policy minds of his generation and a guiding force for President Obama, is one of the things that inspired me to believe that I could be a difference maker in this time of vital importance,” Morse said.

    Yep. California has 53 Congress persons. 14 are Republicans. 39 are Democrats. Current polls show the Democrats leading in 7 Republican districts and 0 Republicans leading in Democrat districts. If that holds, California will have 46 Democrats in Congress and 7 Republicans. All state offices and the two Senators will be Democrats. Perhaps more importantly is that a number of Democrats likely to win in seats already held by Democrats are more to the left than current seat holders. The California Democrat Party convention in San Diego this weekend, denied Diane Feinstein an endorsement so that Kevin De Leon will have a better shot at taking the US Senate seat. I don't have a party preference, but if I was a Republican or a conservative in California, I'd be pretty depressed.

      California doesn't need one more Democrat to tax and spend my money. One more program filled with pork and too many hogs at the trough has ruined this state.

        Seriously, are you kidding? Didn't you just see the republican controled house and senate in cahoots with the democrats pass a two year budget deal to drive our country into two more trillions of dollars of debt? A deal which was quickly and silently signed by "drain the swamp" president Trump. Pay attention sheeple.....!

We should just let Mexico have California. Less illegals, less welfare, less handouts and less criminals for the United States! Let them have all the problems and problematic people the stupid government in California thinks we need. There is just no way to fix stupid!!

    Thats the problem with government these days.
    Just because a democrat tells you another democrat is good even more democrats run around thinking by voting for this woman its going to solve something.
    She will fail like the other democrats that ran.
    Like Meriita Calloway will fail.

    The times of women in politics who do nothing but pander to their friends and think they are tools of change is over.

      I don't agree. Women and their friends can spend our money just as well as men and their friends.
