Thank you for support in primary election

Editor, the Advocate:

I want to publicly express my gratitude and deepest thanks to everyone who voted in the recent Republican Primary election. Whether you took the time to cast your ballot during early voting or braved the inclement weather on election day, thank you for making your voice heard.

We are as humbled as we are excited by the outcome. In any election, candidates ask for more than just a vote but for the trust of those they represent. I'm deeply humbled by the trust you've shown, and I'll work hard to earn your support again in the general election.

This was definitely a grass-roots effort, and most of the major decisions were made around our kitchen table. I'm especially thankful for my wife, Jamie, my family and our many friends and volunteers. This could never have happened without their hard work, dedication and enthusiasm.

Many thanks again, and God Bless.
