ENDORSEMENT: Rufus Gifford (MA-3)

Foreign Policy for America Action Network Endorses Rufus Gifford for Congress (MA-3)

Former U.S. Ambassador to Denmark endorsed by nonpartisan Foreign Policy for America Action Network


(Washington, D.C. – February 5) The Foreign Policy for America Action Network announced today its endorsement of Rufus Gifford for Congress in Massachusetts’ 3rd District.

“As the U.S. Ambassador to Denmark, Rufus Gifford personally demonstrated the power of American diplomacy to secure our interests around the world,” said Andrew Albertson, Executive Director of Foreign Policy for America. “Rufus will be a powerful voice for diplomacy at a time when too many in Washington seem hellbent on war.”

“I’m thrilled to receive the endorsement of Foreign Policy for America because I share their commitment to a foreign policy that upholds American values,” said Gifford. “At a time when the U.S. is acting recklessly on the world stage, we need active and engaged citizens more than ever to help restore American leadership and our moral example.”

As Ambassador to Denmark from 2013-2017, Rufus Gifford pioneered a highly successful public diplomacy strategy and sought to address global challenges of the future. A passionate public servant, he frequently engaged with youth and other non-traditional diplomatic audiences and promoted various areas of the bilateral relationship, including counter-extremism initiatives, business ties, and Danish military support in Iraq and Afghanistan. Gifford served as Finance Director for Barack Obama’s re-election campaign in 2012.

Gifford joins Ken Harbaugh (OH-7), Andy Kim (NJ-3), Tom Malinowski (NJ-7), Elissa Slotkin (MI-08), and Nancy Soderberg (FL-6) as candidates for Congress endorsed by the Foreign Policy for America Action Network in the 2018 election cycle.
