Erik Aadland is rolling out endorsements and position papers ahead of the CD-7 Assembly and Friday and today he announced the endorsement of former Governor of Texas and U.S. Secretary of Energy Rick Perry.
In the endorsement, former Governor Perry said, ““Erik Aadland embodies the servant-leadership mentality Washington so desperately needs. Erik is the right choice for Congress in Colorado’s 7th District. He has an impressive track record as a decorated combat veteran as well as a successful career as an energy policy expert. Erik has proven himself on the battlefield, and I know he will prove himself to be a champion in Congress for Colorado and America. I’m proud to endorse Erik Aadland for Congress.”
Aadland expressed gratitude and honor for Perry’s endorsement, “I am deeply honored by Governor Perry’s endorsement,” said Aadland. “His impressive political resume, distinguished military career in the Air Force, and tireless work in service to this country, including his impactful time as part of the Trump Administration as Secretary of Energy, leaves me humbled and encouraged to have his support.”
Aadland’s campaign noted in the press release that Erik is a two-time Bronze Star—one for valor—earning combat veteran, and former energy sector executive.
