Murtha on the Trail with Clinton

Rep. John Murtha (D-Pa.) has campaigned with Hillary Clinton in his home state, and the Clinton campaign today released a web video of Murtha speaking at one of her events.

Murtha is currently serving his 18th term in the House of Representatives, and he is the second-highest ranking Democrat on the Appropriations Committee. Murtha was defeated in a caucus election for House Majority Leader by Steny Hoyer (D-Md.) in 2006, despite being backed by newly crowned Speaker Nancy Pelosi.

The fiercely anti-war Murtha cited fiscal policy and the opportunity to curtail spending on Iraq as reasons he supports Clinton. See the video below.
