General Stanley A. McChrystal Endorses Seth Moulton for Congress


Salem, MA – Today, at an event at the Peabody-Lynn Elks Lodge surrounded by hundreds of supporters, General Stanley A. McChrystal officially endorsed Seth Moulton’s campaign for Congress.

"Seth Moulton and I have both spent our careers working hard, cutting through red tape, and doing what's right even when it's not easy,” said General McChrystal. “That's exactly the kind of leadership we need in Congress today, and that's why I'm proud to support Seth Moulton for Congress. I know Seth will not only work hard to create jobs, expand access to health care, and take care of our veterans, he'll actually get it done."

General McChrystal led Joint Special Operations Command in Iraq and was top Commander of American forces in Afghanistan. McChrystal also serves as an advisor to First Lady Michelle Obama’s Joining Forces initiative to support military families.

“It is a tremendous honor to have General McChrystal’s support for my campaign,” said Moulton. “General McChrystal has dedicated himself to a life of service. He’s been a champion for all those who believe in America and in selflessly serving others.”

Since announcing his candidacy in July 2013, the Moulton campaign has raised more than $1.5M, made multiple visits to each of the 39 cities and towns in the district, and contacted over 57,000 voters.  For more information, visit or follow the campaign on Twitter or Facebook
