C. Mason Weaver continues to assemble the Ronald Reagan ideas and philosophy with the welcome addition of Attorney General Edwin Meese III to his growing list of supporters. Edwin Meese seldom endorses or supports a candidate in a contested Republican primary. However, after knowing C. Mason Weaver for 20 years, working on the same issues and sharing information and research, this was one exception to the rule. The C. Mason Weaver for Congress campaign is thrilled to have the leadership and wisdom of this long time conservative thinker.
FORMER ATTORNEY GENERAL EDWIN “ED” MEESE III ENDORSES
C. MASON WEAVER FOR CONGRESS
SAN DIEGO, CA – Edwin “Ed” Meese, 75th Attorney General of the United States, has endorsed C. Mason Weaver for Congressman of California’s 53rd District, stating that Weaver’s New Contract with America demonstrates a clear and uncompromising stance on responsible economic strategies at home and fighting terrorism abroad.
“C. Mason Weaver’s plans to help revitalize the economy, target terrorists and protect American interests are crucial to regaining the sense of security that so many Americans have lost,” said Meese.
“I know Mr. Weaver to be a principled man of sound judgment and unyielding traditional values,” said Meese. “As Congressman, he will relentlessly pursue freedom and uphold America’s Constitutional heritage which has capably guided her for the past two centuries.”
Weaver said that he is honored to have the endorsement of Meese who, because of his influence with the former president, has been described as the “alter ego of Ronald Reagan.”
“Mr. Meese has been a distinguished and venerated public servant whose indispensable wisdom has guided one of the most successful presidencies of our time,” said Weaver. “I am honored to have his support.”
Meese served as U.S. attorney general from 1985 to 1988 and served as counselor to President Reagan from 1981 to 1985. He formerly served as Governor Reagan’s executive assistant and chief of staff from 1969 through 1974. An expert on the U.S. legal system, criminal justice, intelligence and national security, Meese was a professor of law at the University of San Diego from 1977 to 1981. He published his memoirs in the 1992 book, With Reagan: The Inside Story.
