Thank You!

We have seen many great improvements in the voting results of California’s 53rd Congressional District. Compared to 2008, we gained 8% more of the vote and raised 6 times as much money. For that, I am grateful and I have only you to thank. You made this run possible. You are the reason we performed as well as we did. I am truly humbled and honored to have had your enormous support and investment.

The decision whether to seek the Republican Nomination for a third time is not one that I have made lightly or in haste. However, since California voters just defeated Proposition 27 and supported Proposition 20, which will take congressional redistricting out of the Legislature’s hands and give it to an independent commission, this should remove the gerrymandering that has existed since 2001. It will ensure that Susan Davis is not re-elected in 2012. As such, I look forward to continuing our campaign for the next two years as we secure the much deserved retirement of Susan Davis in 2012.

Please save the date for Saturday, January 15th, when I will hold a Kitchen Cabinet meeting to strategize our 2012 Victory. Further details will be announced soon.

In closing, I want to express my thanks to everyone who participated in the election and especially, of course, those who voted for me. This past year has been a terrific experience and I am better off for having lived it. I thank my neighbors, my friends and my supporters – old and new – for their untiring support and for standing with me throughout the campaign. I do believe that San Diego and our Nation are slightly better off as a result. Time will tell but much needs to be done to reverse the course of the last two years towards socialism back to freedom.

From the start of my campaign to this day, I have maintained that the major issues currently facing America are our economy and private sector job creation. I have also argued that the out-of-control spending and unparalleled debt that our government is leaving future generations is an unconscionable moral wrong that will only be solved by competent, principled leaders who know how to balance budgets and reduce the harmful spending that is now so menacing to our own children. While I fell short in the election results, it is clear that the people of San Diego – and all across America – share our concerns and want their elected representatives to address these issues right now!

I especially thank all of my supporters once again for everything they have done. I am deeply humbled and truly honored to have had the dedicated and unwavering support from so many over the course of the campaign. For this, I shall forever be grateful. I shall never forget you.

Thank you. God bless you and God bless America!
