“Close” only counts in horseshoes and hand grenades

April 1, 2014|Posted in: Blog Posts

A series of long days where I knocked on doors and contacted delegates was culminated by a disappointing vote tally at the Assembly.

The vote count was almost exactly what we calculated it would be, but it seemed that more alternates got to vote than we expected. The total count of people allowed to vote was 180, and that seemed like more than the number of delegates which should be voting.

The bottom line is that I fell below the 30% required to be on the ballot. So, my campaign has come to an early end.

I want to thank all those of you who were so amazing, and who helped carry me to the “almost there” point.

I am going to close down the campaign, and step back for a week of rest. I will bind my wounds, and consider what the Almighty might want me to do next. In the mean time, please keep your heads up, and your spirits high.

Republicans should take the House this fall, and maybe even the Senate. I plan to support one of our candidates for Governor after the State Assembly later this month. Then we are on the road to victory in November.

Thanks again… and I will be seeing you soon on the campaign trail (supporting another one of our great candidates).
