Let me start by congratulating Danny Tarkanian, his wife Amy and his beautiful family on a great win tonight. He has my full support as he moves on, to what I know will be a general election victory.
have so many people to thank, my family who always supports me pursuing my goals, my campaign team, all our volunteers who worked tirelessly the last 9 months and finally the thousands of voters in Congressional District 3 who put their faith and their vote in me; we hold our head up high, we stuck to our guns on running a clean campaign and didn’t attack any opponents.
I have a special thank you and congratulations to the Ending Spending Super Pac on spending 1.6 million dollars on attack ads the last 5 days of the election, thank you for using great happy pictures of me and a super congratulations on your loss. The take away for me from their actions, even though we did not prevail personally, is they didn’t prevail and they didn’t get to buy this seat after all for their chosen one.
Last night and this morning I spoke with some of my supporters, their repeated question was, “How come I didn’t respond to the last minute attacks ads?” Let me share with you what I shared with them, in order to respond to those attack ads, I would’ve had to write a big fat check for thousands of dollars for TV & radio spots which our campaign did not have. As races go on always remember to question the attacks you see and the people they fear the most will be attacked vehemently.
On a very happy note, races that were well run, well fought and very well deserved:
• My personal Assemblyman Richard McArthur who will be taking over my Assembly district come January 2017, won against the establishment, Governor endorsed candidate, congratulations Richard!
• Assemblywoman Victoria Seaman who punched the establishment right in their face, congratulations. I look forward to calling her Senator Seaman in November.
• Assemblyman Brent Jones, once again he went up against the establishment and prevailed, very deserving. Congratulations!
Now, back to basics, we have a lot to do, justice reform should be on the forefront of most of our minds, 1 out of every 4.5 of us will be incarcerated, getting our voters educated is part of all of our responsibility. We are responsible for where this country is going and where it is today. Here in Clark County as of 9:00am this morning our voter turnout for this Primary was 16.41%. To break that down, out of every 100 registered voters only 16 people voted. If you’re dissatisfied or disenchanted with the results of last nights primaries and you didn’t vote please understand your no vote was a yes vote for someone you didn’t support. Voting should be a national holiday, it’s that important.
As we now move on to the coming days, let’s make plans together. My top priorities are:
• Getting Nevadans elected that stand with the people
• Restoring Liberties
• States Control of Education
• Defending our Second Amendment
• Justice Reform / Jury Nullification Education
• Removing over-regulated regulators / helping our business community
In love and liberty,
