A political action committee aimed at eliminating partisanship from American politics is endorsing independent candidate Larry Pressler in his bid to take back the U.S. Senate seat he held decades ago.
Centrist Project Voice director Charles Wheelan says Pressler embraces centrist principles that include fiscal responsibility, environmental stewardship, social tolerance, economic opportunity and a pragmatic approach to solving policy challenges.
Wheelan. a senior lecturer and policy fellow at Dartmouth College, says the project is designed to empower the neglected but growing political middle by channeling the support of centrist Americans to a handful of key U.S. Senate candidates.
The project is also supporting Republican Sen. Susan Collins of Maine; Democratic candidate Michelle Nunn of Georgia; independent candidate Greg Orman of Kansas; and American Party candidate Jill Bossi of South Carolina.
