Dove Battle of the Dems: Hoyer: I’m As Anti-War as Murtha!

Hoyer Statement Regarding

His Position on Iraq



WASHINGTON, DC – The Office of House Democratic Whip Steny Hoyer (MD) released the following statement today:


“Congressman Hoyer and Congressman Murtha have joined other Democratic leaders from both the House and Senate in signing three letters to the President that outline the consensus among Democrats regarding Iraq,” said Stacey Farnen Bernards, Hoyer’s press secretary.  “Any representation that Congressman Hoyer endorses a ‘stay-the-course’ strategy or advocates sending more troops to Iraq is wrong.”
