Thank you for helping me the last two years serve our community, both in Michigan and in Washington. Your work to protect our freedoms is an invaluable service to our country.
Over the last two years I have run my campaign, and my congressional office, under one notion: the job of Congress is protect our rights, not take them away.
Today, and over the last few months, we have seen the leaders of the Republican Party of Michigan embrace money over ideas and cronyism over principles. They are more interested in protecting their jobs than our freedom. They have become more interested in power than helping others maintain our liberty.
I know that we are all disappointed with the outcome—and I assure you, I am too. But, we must remember that this is only the beginning battle to take back our country and take back our party from crony capitalists.
Two years ago I found myself in the unlikeliest of positions and I have done my best to serve the people of Michigan’s 11th District rather than the moneyed interests. I’ve also learned a lot from my time in Congress. The status quo in the Republican Party is going to have to change whether they like it or not. They will no longer be allowed to have our vote simply because we dislike the Democrats more.
I’ve seen behind the curtain and I know that the ideas of Ted Cruz and Rand Paul are winning. I can attest that my friends like Trey Gowdy, Mark Meadows, and the other conservative members of the House are slowly, but surely, gaining control. Principled conservative leadership can change minds and gain support. The revolution in the Republican Party is going to continue, and it’s not going to be based on hating the other guys worse. It’s going to be founded on loving the country more.
Stay involved. Stay tuned.
Thank you and God Bless,
Your Conservative Congressman
