Alliance Youth Chair Stephen Martin today hailed the stunning nomination of Senator Barack Obama of Illinois as the Democratic Party’s nominee for President of the United States. Senator Obama clinched his Party’s nomination late last night as one of the most nail-biting American primary seasons in history ended.
Stephen Martin commented: “He is an inspiration and is the type of person who will open up politics to a new generation of young people across the globe.
“Senator Barack Obama burst onto the scene with a memorable speech which wowed the Democratic National Convention back in 2004. Elected to the United States Senate in November of that year, Senator Obama has worked since then to advocate a progressive agenda especially in international affairs with key successes including bipartisan bills on nuclear terrorism and climate change.
“Today I send my congratulations to Alliance Youth’s partners, the Young Democrats of America, and their Chair, David Hardt, in the selection of their Presidential nominee. I want to give them our best wishes as they work towards victory in November’s Presidential election.”
