Que the Star Wars theme...
Last night, freedom-loving Americans scored another important victory in our ongoing campaign to take back our country. Conservative Dr. Rand Paul won the Republican nomination for U.S. Senate in Kentucky by more than 20 points.
The Washington establishment threw everything they had at Rand yet he prevailed. The Beltway crowd recruited, endorsed, and funded Rand's opponent, but it didn't work. Rand's message of less spending and less debt overcame all of the attacks and smears against him.
In Rand's victory speech last night he said, "I have a message from the tea party: We've come to take our government back."
This victory is further evidence that an American awakening is taking place across the country as people embrace the principles of freedom that are the backbone of our country.
It shows that Americans want strong leaders who will stop the massive spending, bailouts, and debt that are bankrupting our country. And it shows that Americans want their representatives in Washington to focus on true national priorities, not wasteful earmarks.
I want thank each of you who have supported Rand Paul's campaign. If he's elected in November, he will add his voice to the growing number of new Republicans who will fight for our future.
But this race is not over and the Democrats are going to do everything they can to defeat our candidate. Let's redouble our efforts and make sure Rand wins. read more »
I was proud to have earned the endorsement of the Independence Caucus this week. The Independence Caucus was started by volunteers working to elect Jason Chaffetz to Congress in 2008. Tired of the unsustainable spending and growth in Washington, iCaucus fights to elect candidates who will faithfully represent and actively listen to their constituents. Below is an excerpt from the official endorsement.
The Independence Caucus carefully chooses candidates based on an extensive vetting process, and after running the gambit, Jeff Duncan, can now count himself as one of Independence Caucus’ family.
Jeff plans to continue his crusade against big government and higher taxes in Washington, and believes that South Carolinians have a right to be upset over the irresponsible growth they have seen in recent years. His support for businesses and job creation has earned him the “Guardian of Small Business Award” from the National Federation of Independent Businesses, and Jeff hopes to bring his pro-jobs record to Washington. Achieving energy independence should be a top national security and economic priority for the United States, and South Carolina’s third congressional district is poised to help lead the way. Jeff looks forward to stirring up Washington with the same enthusiasm for fiscal responsibility as the tens of thousands of South Carolinians have showed recently during the Tea Party Movement. He will ensure that America honors its commitment to our veterans, and that our combat and support troops have the proper tools and equipment to accomplish their objectives and return safely. Illegal immigration is a major problem in this country and a direct threat to our national security. Jeff has been a strong advocate in the State House for strengthening and enforcing immigration laws and will continue his fight in Washington. Jeff is opposed to any form of amnesty.
