If you liked watching Gold Star dad Khizr Khan brandish the U.S. Constitution from the stage at the Democratic convention last year, you’ll be happy to hear that we’re likely to see more of him in 2018. The Hill writes:
Khan has endorsed several Democrats running in crowded primaries, including Jason Crow, who’s running against Rep. Mike Coffman (R-Colo.); Ed Meier, who’s looking to unseat Rep. Pete Sessions (R-Texas); Gina Ortiz Jones, who’s running to challenge Rep. Will Hurd (R-Texas); and Ann Kirkpatrick, a former House member who will be running for an open seat once Rep. Martha McSally (R-Ariz.) announces her Senate run.
Khan plans to attend fundraisers and help candidates at campaign events. He said he’s met with the DCCC and will make future endorsements as national Democrats start to coalesce around more candidates.
In his interview with The Hill, Khan said recent events like the Charlottesville violence motivated him to continue to his involvement in politics.
“It’s such reminders that encourage me, that give me direction, that this is the time to speak and continue to speak for the values that we all cherish so very much, meaning our democracy, our rule of law,” Khan said.
Khan kept himself very busy in 2017, participating in some 170 speaking events, and he clearly plans to stay engaged throughout 2018.
