DCCC Chairman Steve Israel’s Statement on Victory in MA-05
DCCC Chairman Steve Israel released the following statement following Katherine Clark’s victory in the special election in Massachusetts’ 5th district:
“Congratulations to State Senator Katherine Clark on her well-deserved victory in tonight’s special election, and we are particularly excited to welcome her to the historic and growing ranks of Democratic women in the House. Katherine Clark is a committed public servant who will come to Washington to work to help create good jobs and stand up for the middle class.
“While Republicans in Congress end the year with nearly 50 votes to repeal health care reforms and zero accomplishments to create jobs or grow our economy, the people of eastern Massachusetts elected Katherine to be a commonsense problem-solver who fights for middle class families.”
