Didier Responds to Hastings' Endorsement of Newhouse
Washington 4th congressional district candidate Clint Didier releases a statement this morning on Rep. Doc Hastings endorsement of his opponent, Dan Newhouse, which will be made official this morning.
The statement is below:
"This isn't really a surprising development for a couple of reasons. First, I haven't asked Doc for his endorsement and never expected or counted on it.
Second, I won the primary by more than 6 points, so I'd expect the Republican establishment and beltway insiders back in Washington DC to pull out all the stops and pressure Doc to endorse their guy - who's a career politician - instead of the grassroots favorite. And remember, Doc is part of Speaker John Boehner's leadership team.
I'm extremely pleased with my own endorsements - Ron Paul, Freedomworks, Mark Levine, LibertyPac, FRC Action, Human Life PAC, Congressman Thomas Massie, Young Americans for Liberty, National Association for Gun Rights and many more freedom loving individuals and organizations. And we will have more big announcements in the coming days.
They say you can judge a man by the company he keeps - so I think people can easily figure out if they want a Congressman whose friends and supporters are lobbyists, Dow Chemical, Dupont, Monsanto, DC and other beltway insiders whose money and power have gotten us into the mess we're in now - or one who is supported by liberty-loving patriots who want to limit federal government powers and restore our freedoms."
