Congresswoman Terri Sewell Attends the Democratic National Convention

Staff Report

Charlotte, NC—On Tuesday, Congresswoman Terri Sewell (D-AL) released the following statement on the opening day of official proceedings at the 2012 Democratic National Convention in Charlotte, North Carolina:

“I am so excited to be a part of the Alabama delegation as we prepare to officially name President Barack Obama as the Democratic nominee.  President Obama is the only choice for the 7th Congressional District and the best choice for our nation. The Alabama delegation is fired up and ready to re-elect President Obama.

This week, Democrats will celebrate President Obama’s accomplishments—29 straight months of job growth, healthcare reform, fair pay for women, financial reform, and so much more.  This Convention is about mapping out our road ahead.  President Obama has a plan to move our nation forward.  He believes that America prospers when hard work pays off, responsibility is rewarded, and everyone gets a fair shot.

President Obama puts people first, and that’s what matters most.  Over the next couple of months, we’re going to work harder than ever to carry this message to voters and see that President Barack Obama is re-elected!”
