Official: Sheehan to Oppose Pelosi

Saturday, 09 Aug 2008 12:19 PM

A year to the date exactly after formally announcing her intention to challenge Congresswoman Nancy Pelosi for her seat in California's 8th district, Cindy Sheehan is officially on the ballot as a "Decline to State" candidate.

In order to qualify as an "Decline to State" candidate Sheehan was required to submit 10,198 signatures from registered voters in the district by August 8th, 2008; Sheehan's campaign collected close the double the amount of signatures needed and qualified before the deadline.

"Getting on the ballot is just the first victory for our campaign," says Sheehan

"I am even more convinced now than I was a year ago that the people of San Francisco are ready to lead the way to step outside of the dated two-party system and elect someone who truly represents San Francisco values, not party loyalties and criminal activities."

"In a recent interview Nancy Pelosi admitted she couldn't even name a crime that the Bush administration has committed, by the end of this campaign she'll be well versed in all of them, even the ones she's complicit in."

Cindy Sheehan is the sixth person in the state history of California to qualify as a "Decline to State" candidate.

Cindy Sheehan lives in San Francisco and is running for Congress in California's 8th District. Her oldest son Casey was killed in Iraq in April of 2004. She rose to international fame as a peace activist in August of 2005 after camping out in front of President Bush's vacation home asking him to meet with her and explain what noble cause her son died for.
