Cleland campaigns for Kerry

February 29, 2004

Albany- He and several of John Kerry's Vietnam crew members held a rally in Albany just about an hour ago.

They're traveling the state, rallying support for the Massachusetts senator on what they call a "Band of Brothers Tour."

Cleland says Senator Saxby Chambliss's criticism of Kerry's voting record on defense is ludicrous.

"I think the American people are seeing through this slim attack and I don't think they're going to buy it this time around because John Kerry is a fighter. He's a warrior, and we band of brothers are going to make sure the American people understand they've got a real deal in John Kerry and not the raw deal we've got in the White House."

Cleland says Kerry is the only candidate that has electability and understands the American people's desire to go to war as a last resort, not a first resort.
