3070) Famous Armenian-Americans: Tarkanian for Senate: An Armenian-American U.S. Senator & Reader's Comments by Sukru Server Aya

Dear Friends,

In August of 1939, shortly before the implementation of the Holocaust, German dictator Adolf Hitler rhetorically asked of his collaborators: “Who remembers now the extermination of the Armenians?” It is a question which has echoed down the decades and reverberates to this day. . .

On Thursday March 4, 2010 the House Foreign Affairs Committee passed by a one-vote margin H.R. 252, the Armenian Genocide Resolution. It was another historic opportunity for America to utilize its moral authority to recognize events that ended over a million lives and nearly destroyed a people. Predictably however, interest groups opposed to the recognition quickly began disseminating false information and issuing warnings regarding reprisals against both the United States and Armenia. Many members of Congress, even those who have recognized the Genocide, nevertheless urged caution and argued against the resolution - citing both the alleged strategic importance of Turkey and continued unfavorable timing. Moreover, the current administration also weighed in heavily against the resolution with Secretary of State Hillary Clinton declaring: “The Obama Administration strongly opposes the resolution that was passed by only one vote in the House committee, and will work very hard to make sure it does not go to the House floor.”

These events, coupled with past disappointments and an historic opportunity have prompted us to write to the community today to urge you to support the campaign of Nevada’s Danny Tarkanian, who is running to become the first ever Armenian-American member of the United States Senate.

We believe that the only way the U.S. Congress will recognize the Genocide, or fight for the issues important to so many Armenian-Americans such as aid to Armenia, and the recognition of Nagorno-Karabagh, is to have an articulate Armenian-American voice in the U.S. Senate. That voice can be Danny Tarkanian.

The son of legendary basketball coach Jerry Tarkanian, Danny grew up in an Armenian-American household and remains proud of his Armenian roots. Danny and his family have been deeply involved in the Armenian community in Las Vegas and prior to that in Fresno, California. Professionally, Danny is a talented lawyer and businessman with an exemplary record of public service, and a profound commitment to the future of the Silver State. Personally, Danny takes great pride in his years playing for the University of Nevada – Las Vegas basketball team, which, as point guard, he led to the school’s first ever number one NCAA ranking, while also becoming that school’s first-ever Rhodes Scholar candidate. Danny and his wife Amy live in Las Vegas with their three daughters, Lois, Ava and Ashley and new son, “Jerry Jr.”

As we approach the May 28 anniversary of the founding of the First Republic of Armenia, we are asking that each of you donate $28 or more to Danny’s campaign to become the first Armenian-American U.S. Senator. It is critical that we support Danny's campaign now so that he has the resources he’ll need to compete with his well-financed opponents, particularly in the primary election - now just 36 days away on June 8, 2010. Please make your contribution online here: https://www.icontribute.us/dannytarkanian/initiative/amb and do so before May 15 if possible.

Danny continues to demonstrate growing support in Nevada: being viewed more favorably than any other candidate and having consistently and significantly beaten his general election opponent, Senator Harry Reid, in the last 16 consecutive polls!

Whether you are Republican or Democrat, Libertarian or independent, we hope you will join with us in grasping this historic opportunity – perhaps the best chance in our lifetimes of electing an Armenian-American to the United States Senate.

The time is now. Every single donation will make a real difference for our past, our present and our futures.
