Council for a Livable World is proud to announce our endorsement of Democrat Alan Khazei for U.S. Senate in the Massachusetts special election to replace the late Senator Edward Kennedy.
This special primary election will be held on December 8 with the general election held on January 19.
The Council endorsed Khazei among a group of good candidates because of his intense activisim in the growing international movement for a world without nuclear weapons.
Khazei was a founding signatory of Global Zero, an organization advocating eliminating nuclear weapons. He participated in their inaugural conference in December 2008 in Paris, France. We are persuaded that he is the candidate most likely to be a leader on nuclear weapons issues in the U.S. Senate.
In addition, Khazei offers unique knowledge and insight into the volatile issue of Iran’s nuclear aspirations. His father was born in Iran, so the candidate has deep knowledge and understanding of Iran’s history, culture and U.S.-Iranian relations.
