Republicans hope to gain control of the Senate in the 2014 Senate contests, and Democrats are on the defensive. Still, there are many primaries and decisions ahead, and predictions at this point are risky. Here is Council for a Livable World's roundup of the 2014 Senate elections.
“I’ve known Don for many years and throughout them, he has always been a champion for the people of the Commonwealth, common sense foreign policy and human rights,” said former Alexandria/Arlington Delegate Ira Lechner, chairman of the Council for a Livable World’s Board of Directors. “I’m proud to see PeacePAC continuing its great legacy by endorsing a pro-peace, pro-common sense leader to take the concerns of Virginians to Capitol Hill.”
"The folly of imposing new sanctions now is fraught with irony. Years of steadily tightened multilateral sanctions have succeeded. They've brought the new, relatively moderate Iranian President Hassan Rouhani to an accord that halts Iranian enrichment of weapons-grade uranium," writes Council Board Member, Gerald Warburg for The Virginia Pilot.
“For decades, the Council has supported great Maine leaders such as Senator King, Congresswoman Pingree and some lucky folks like myself,” said former Maine Congressman Tom Andrews, chairman of Council for a Livable World’s PeacePAC. “Shenna Bellows is another great Mainer and she’ll be a champion for the state like Senators King and Mitchell. I’m glad to see the Council making this early move to endorse her and I look forward to seeing her lead in the Senate.”
