message of restructuring government, reforming
the big bailout banks and peace through strength directly to the

Washington that understands America’s exceptionalism is not our burden
but our birthright; and that America’s ultimate strength and

to serve as your United States Representative for Michigan’s new 11th
Congressional District; and, I am committed to promoting
and implementing a platform of principled conservatism.
Michigan and America’s best days are ahead of us because of you.
Together we will transcend our challenges; revitalize our economy;
defend our freedom; and bequeath our exceptional nation to our
children. If I am
again entrusted to be your servant, I would continue to be honored to
work for you.
