I decided to run for Congress to revive the American dream, renew the American spirit and restore the flame of liberty across this “one nation, under God.” Like you, I know socialized health care needs to be stopped; our tax system needs to be reformed; our money belongs at home, with us; and we need a Congressman that listens to us rather than lobbyists.
Last night’s results are not what we had hoped for when we embarked on this journey more than a year ago but the people of the 9th District have spoken.
Thank you for your support, your prayers and your votes. I am honored and humbled by the way I have been lifted up and given your trust during this campaign and I will never forget the experience.
While I may not be going to serve you in Congress, I will continue to work for the Conservative values and solutions that are important, not just to the people of the 9th District but also the American people. I will continue to speak out against the unconstitutional and economy-damaging health care package. I will continue to add my voice to the growing numbers of people who see that the Fair Tax is the best answer for reforming our tax system. Most of all, I will continue to be a force in my community and the 9th District for solid, Republican solutions to the enormous challenges our nation faces today.
As Margaret Mead said, “Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world. Indeed, it is the only thing that ever has.”
Thank you for all that you have done. I cannot express my sincere thanks for all the work you have done on my behalf. I pledge to continue the fight for Conservatism in all levels of government. I hope that you will join me.
