John Spratt, Jr.
Supported by Council for a Livable World
The Council for a Livable World, founded in 1962 by long-time socialist activist and alleged Soviet agent, Leo Szilard, is a non-profit advocacy organization that seeks to "reduce the danger of nuclear weapons and increase national security", primarily through supporting progressive, congressional candidates who support their policies. The Council supported John Spratt, Jr. in his successful House of Representatives run as candidate for South Carolina.
The Council supported Spratt in his 2010 Congressional election campaign.
