ENDORSEMENT: Ken Harbaugh (OH-7)

Foreign Policy for America Action Network Endorses Ken Harbaugh for Congress (OH-7)

Navy veteran among first slate of endorsements for the nonpartisan Foreign Policy for America Action Network


(Washington, D.C. – October 11) The Foreign Policy for America Action Network has endorsed Ken Harbaugh, candidate for Congress in Ohio’s 7th District, the political action committee announced today.

“Ken Harbaugh is a dedicated public servant who has fought for our country on and off the battlefield,” said Andrew Albertson, Executive Director of Foreign Policy for America. “He’s a proven leader. And he has a deep understanding of how strong, principled foreign policy protects our country’s interests at home and abroad. We’re proud to support his candidacy for the U.S. House of Representatives.”

“I am honored by the support and confidence placed in me by FP4America,” said Ken Harbaugh. “It is time for a new generation of leadership in Washington. We need lawmakers who grasp the cost of going to war. But Congress today has fewer military veterans than at any time in the last 50 years. It is time for that to change. It is time to send folks to Washington who put the needs of our country above the whims of any one political party. Our nation depends on this.”

Ken Harbaugh is a former Navy pilot and an Ohioan who has made public service his life’s work. The son and grandson of Air Force combat pilots, Harbaugh flew reconnaissance missions in the Middle East and off the coast of North Korea. Following his naval service, he earned a J.D. from Yale Law School and co-founded The Mission Continues, a nonprofit that empowers military men and women to keep serving in their communities. Harbaugh is the past president of Team Rubicon Global, a disaster relief organization that has helped train over 45,000 veterans to deploy in emergency response teams around the world.

Harbaugh joins Andy Kim (NJ-3), Tom Malinowski (NJ-7), and Nancy Soderberg (FL-6) as the first four candidates for Congress endorsed by the Foreign Policy for America Action Network in the 2018 election cycle.
