Patrick Murphy is a leader of character. He is an Iraq War veteran, former West Point professor, criminal prosecutor, and most importantly, a good family man. Born and raised in Northeast Philadelphia � the youngest of three to a Philadelphia police officer and career legal secretary � he learned at an early age that hard work, sacrifice, and focus will lead you to achieve your dreams.

I am a Lieutenant Commander in the Naval Reserve and have spent much of the last 5 and a half years serving either overseas, or at the Pentagon as a senior advisor on intelligence and counterterrorism issues. For the past 14 years, I have been a professor of political science at Penn State in Scranton.

While I do have a record of service to my country, I have never run for public office before. But, I am fed up with Washington politicians leaving most Americans behind while our national priorities are forgotten. I am tired of legislators focusing on the extremes of issues instead of finding ways to move the nation forward. And I am tired of the values of middle America being ignored. Our families, our small businesses, our teachers, our farmers, and our children all deserve more from our representatives.

After 24 years in the Army National Guard, Command Sergeant Major Walz retired from the 1-125th Field Artillery Battalion in the spring of 2005. Prior to retiring, Walz served overseas with his battalion in support of Operation Enduring Freedom.

Tim Walz�s inspiring approach to teaching has gained him recognition as the 2002 Minnesota Ethics in Education award winner, 2003 Mankato Teacher of the Year, and the 2003 Minnesota Teacher of Excellence. Walz completed his master's degree in educational leadership in 2001 and is currently working on his doctorate at St. Mary�s College in Winona, Minnesota.

John Courage


John Courage's name embodies what Texans in District 21 are looking for in their next congressman - the courage to insist that their mainstream values, and not just Tom DeLay's, be represented in Washington; the courage to stand with ordinary Texas families and small businesses against the corporate special interests; the courage to rekindle that faith they once had in government to be a force for positive change in their daily lives.

Courage came to San Antonio for basic training after enlisting in the U.S. Air Force in 1971. He was honorably discharged four years later and enrolled in the University of Texas at San Antonio, working his way through with jobs in a local children's home and the Bexar County Mental Health and Retardation Department. He earned a BA in American Studies at UTSA.

While I am not the seasoned politician that my opponent is, I have served my country for 19 years as a United States Marine, and currently hold the rank of Lt. Colonel in the Marine Corps Reserve. I view this opportunity as a chance to serve my nation in a different capacity.

I care deeply about our nation and, like you, am deeply troubled by the direction that this Congress and this administration is leading us.

I believe that we need to give our men and women in the armed services the tools that they need to carry out their mission effectively, so that we can bring them home safely and soon. I believe that we need to stop playing Washington politics with people�s jobs and livelihoods and I believe that when a man gives his word it should be his bond.

I believe that we should value education and work over idle wealth and I believe that the promise of opportunity that we know as the American Dream should be available to all, not just the privileged few.

Many members of Congress have traveled to Iraq. However, if elected, I will be one of only a few members of Congress to have served in combat in Iraq. I fought in the first Gulf War.

The war in Iraq, in Afghanistan, and the Global War on Terrorism demand a new military.

The Cold War is over. We are now engaged in a Global War on Terrorism. What is the grand strategy? What are we doing in the global theater? In World War II we had a grand strategy and were successful, we don't have one now.

By working within the global economy we will continue to grow our own economy and be strong enough to create a consistent foreign policy. This strength will give us the flexibility to use selective options we need to secure world peace.

Free trade is the baseline of a strong foreign economic policy. We must insist that the countries from whom we import adhere to environment, health and labor standards.

The United States is the world standard for civil rights, period. When we fail to set an effective example for the rest of the world we lose our credibility to insist on higher standards from others. When we are wrong, we must admit our mistakes and move quickly to correct them.

John Laesch


Driven by his desire to serve his country, John enlisted in the United States Navy in 1995. In 1996, Laesch graduated at the top of his class as an Intelligence Analyst for the United States Navy and was transferred to the Middle East for the next three years.

While stationed in Bahrain, Laesch analyzed terrorist organizations and foreign political and military structures. Before being medically evacuated from the Middle East and honorably discharged, John meritoriously rose 5 ranks within 3 short years. He received numerous citations for his outstanding service to our nation.

Following his service in the Navy, Mr. Laesch attended Illinois State University where he earned a Bachelor of Science degree with a major in History and minors in Political Science and Communications.

After miraculously surviving and recovering from an automobile accident in 2002, John realized that if he truly wanted to affect positive change in this world, then he needed to become more politically active. John began volunteering for numerous political campaigns, taking on higher leadership levels with each subsequent campaign. In the 2004 election cycle, Mr. Laesch served as the campaign manager for Dr. David Gill in the Illinois 15th Congressional District.

At the conclusion of the 2004 election, John realized that the national agenda could only be changed from the 14th District and decided to challenge Dennis Hastert in the 2006 election.

Coleen Rowley


From the time she was eleven years old, Coleen was determined that she would one day become an FBI agent. In January of 1981, she was appointed a Special Agent with the FBI and initially served in the Omaha, Nebraska and Jackson, Mississippi Divisions. In 1984, she was assigned to the New York Office where, for more than 6 years, she worked on Italian organized crime and Sicilian heroin drug investigations. She had the opportunity to further her language proficiency in Italian at the Defense Language Institute in Monterey, California. She also served three separate temporary duty assignments in the Paris, France Embassy and the Montreal Consulate.

In 1990, Coleen was transferred to Minneapolis where she assumed the duties of Principal Legal Advisor (which later became "Chief Division Counsel"). Her responsibilities entailed oversight of the Freedom of Information, Forfeiture, Victim-Witness and Community Outreach Programs as well as providing regular legal and ethics training to FBI Agents of the Division and some outside police training.

In May of 2002, Coleen brought some of the pre 9/11 lapses in the investigation of Zacarias Moussaoui to light. The 9/11 Commission subsequently described Moussaoui as an �Al Qaeda mistake and missed opportunity,� the investigation of whom may have led to the center of the Al Qaeda plot if it had been pursued in a timely and effective manner.

In June of 2002, Coleen testified to the Senate Judiciary Committee about some of the endemic problems faced by the FBI and the intelligence community.

In April 2003, following an unsuccessful attempt to warn the Director and other administration officials about the dangers of launching the invasion of Iraq, she "stepped down" from her legal position and returned to being an FBI Special Agent.

I'm running for Congress because people are being denied their futures. Everywhere you go there is a continual assault on our working families - jobs are being outsourced, healthcare prices are rising, and our federal deficit continues to grow everyday. This is not my idea of protect and defend - which is our government's promise.

By contributing to my campaign, you are returning integrity, service and accountability to our federal government in Washington, DC. I have always fought to uphold the beliefs and traditions instilled in the fiber of our country’s backbone – The Constitution of the United States of America – For 24 years, as a career naval officer, I protected and upheld the idea of our government and its goal as the protector and securer of freedom.

That's why I'm asking for your financial support, to help steer this ship away from the obstacles and towards the opportunities.

But I cannot do it without you.

Tell your friends, your family and your neighbors that I need your help to beat Randy Kuhl, to bring responsible leadership to the 110th Congress, and to work on our real problems. I ask you today to consider donating $4,200, $2,000 or $1,000 today to help us reach out to the voters. Visit to learn more about the race and to contribute online.
