WASHINGTON D.C. — No Dem Left Behind proudly announces its endorsement of Josh Remillard for US Congress as he fights to defeat Madison Cawthorn in North Carolina’s 11th District Congressional Election.
After high school, Josh spent eight years serving in the Army, fearlessly protecting our country and keeping our citizens safe. In the Army, he toured in Baghdad and Mosul, where he served as the Platoon Sergeant and lead truck commissioner for his mortar platoon. Josh recognized the importance of sacrifice and selflessness at an early age, and continues to uphold the integrity and values the Army instilled in him.
“Josh is the real deal! A combat vet that knows what service is about. We need this man in Congress,” says No Dem Left Behind national spokesperson and former West Virginia state senator, Richard Ojeda.
When Josh came home to North Carolina, he used the leadership skills he learned through the Army and poured himself into battles closer to his community. Josh is a volunteer for Team Rubicon, an emergency response team that aids in natural disasters, health crises and humanitarian emergencies. He is a fervent supporter of his community members, from the homeless veterans in Henderson County who he helps find housing, to the children in Brevard who gleefully play in the skate park he helped build. And now he seeks to lend his support to the rest of his state.
In his own words…“I’m running for Congress against Madison Cawthorn because I took an oath to protect our nation, our democracy, and our Constitution from all threats foreign and domestic — and Madison’s a threat…There is so much work to do here at home…I’ll work hard to make North Carolinians proud by fighting for their jobs, their health care, their education, their families, and their freedoms.”
“Josh will do whatever it takes to speak with as many voters as possible regardless of their political leanings. To win in rural America, it’s not enough to turn out Democratic voters; we need to speak to Republicans and Independents on the issues that impact us all. Josh is the type of candidate we need to defeat someone as grotesque as Madison Cawthorn. It is our honor to endorse Josh Remillard for the U.S. House of Representatives.” Hassan Martini, Executive Director, No Dem Left Behind.
