Thursday, July 13, 2017, Republican US Senate candidate Dr. Randy Brinson has received the endorsement by the Put Vets First! Political Action Committee.
Put Vets First! PAC cited Dr. Brinson’s commitment to reforming the Veterans Administration to ensure that veterans receive high-quality care they need and deserve. Also cited in the endorsement was Dr. Brinson’s familiarity with healthcare as a practicing physician, and his being an Air Force veteran himself.
The Chairman of Put Vets First! PAC, Major Brian Hampton USAR (ret) said in a statement “Dr. Randy Brinson is a true champion for American Veterans. His commitment to making sure the VA uses its resources to serve veterans and to reform abuses, demonstrates he should be elected to the United States Senate, both for Alabama constituents and for the Nation.”
Political Director for Put Vets First Jonathan Bodwell said, “Now more than ever, American Veterans need advocates like Dr. Randy Brinson. Dr. Brinson is committed to ending the fraud and abuse rampant in the VA. He truly believes in serving his country. Dr. Randy Brinson is the type of Representative Americans need in Washington, if the Federal government is expected to ever actually put vets first.”
Dr. Brinson, “I’m please and humbled to accept this endorsement from my fellow veterans. Our service men and women have put their lives and bodies between our citizens and the dangerous world we live in. How can we not give them the care and benefits they need after they’ve risked so much? I look forward to serving my fellow veterans in the United States Senate,” Brinson said.
Put Vets First PAC was founded by Major Brian A. Hampton USAR (ret) to organize Veterans’ advocacy outreach to Federal candidates and provide information to candidates and officeholders of the needs and solutions for Veterans.
