Doug Endorsed by Rev. James Washington

The Reverend Dr. James Washington of Athens announced today that he is endorsing Doug. Reverend Washington, pastor of New Grove Baptist Church in Clarke County, has been serving the spiritual needs of the community for 24 years.

"I’ve known Doug Haines as a State Senator and as a leader in our community. He has always stood up for the voices that are under-represented in politics, and he has a record of making the process more open and inclusive to minorities," Washington said. "We need more voices like Doug’s in the halls of Congress. I am proud to support Doug in the Democratic Primary, and I urge everyone who is ready for a real change in Washington, DC to do the same."

In a statement released today, Doug said, "Dr. Washington is a community leader in the truest sense of the word. I am deeply honored to have his support in my campaign for Congress."
