RNC Chairman Michael Steele congratulates the winners of the various primaries held yesterday.
Countdown to Victory in November
Yesterday, May 4, officially marked the six month countdown to the November elections. Today, I would like to congratulate each and every Republican nominee who won their primary in Indiana, North Carolina, and Ohio and who will help bring the Republican Party to sweeping victories in five months, three weeks, and six days.
This fall, the GOP will field an All-Star team of candidates who are committed to the conservative ideals of lower taxes, fiscal restraint and controlling the deficit. We are excited to offer strong nominees who will represent the voice of America – your voice – in Washington, D.C., and state capitals across the country. These candidates will offer real alternatives to the big-government, reckless-spending, job-killing agenda of the Democrats.
•Hoosier Dan Coats will work to turn the seat of retiring Sen. Evan Bayh (D-IN) red, bringing us one seat closer to our ultimate goal of retaking the Senate.
•In North Carolina, Senator Richard Burr will continue to provide the steady Republican leadership that the state and the country need to defeat the leftist agenda of President Obama.
•Gubernatorial candidate John Kasich and Senatorial candidate Rob Portman will lead the Republican ticket in Ohio that will help turn this economy around and create the jobs that are so desperately needed.
The clock is ticking on the days of one party rule in D.C. We know the country craves the kind of leadership that will bring us back to the economic growth, fiscal responsibility, and limited government that has made us so successful in the past. Republicans stand ready to lead the United States to future prosperity and I am confident that Americans across the ideological spectrum will turn out in droves to put our candidates into office and get our country back on track.
So, again, congratulations to all the candidates who won the Republican nomination, you have our full support – the countdown to November 2nd is on!
