Karen Harrington declared victory last night in the Republican Primary Election in Florida's 20th Congressional District, as she offered her congratulations to both of her Republican primary opponents. "This is a very gratifying victory for our campaign, and I want to congratulate both Robert and Donna for their efforts in what was a close and hard fought primary race. With the primary now behind us, it is time for us to unify as a Party and advance our ideas, our principles, and the agenda that we believe is essential for restoring accountability and fiscal responsibility back to our federal government," said Karen Harrington, the Republican nominee for Congress in Florida's 20th Congressional District.
"I would like to thank my family, friends, our campaign's tireless volunteers, and the countless number of people in District 20 whom I've had the pleasure of meeting and getting to know out on the campaign trail. Your support and encouragement throughout this process has been nothing short of amazing and inspirational to me. This victory is yours, for you put our campaign for Congress on your backs and carried it to victory," said Harrington.
The forthcoming November election for Congress in District 20 will provide voters with a clear choice between two candidates with very different governing philosophies as to what the proper role of the federal government should be in our country. Congresswoman Debbie Wasserman-Schultz's record is clear- she is an outspoken partisan supporter of the failed and divisive Obama agenda. Karen Harrington's candidacy offers voters a clear alternative to those who believe that our present political class in Washington D.C. is out of touch with the concerns of ordinary Americans, and that we must reverse course from unchecked government expansion and encroachment into our lives.
"The voters of Congressional District 20 will have a very clear choice in the November- a choice between a small business owner and committed taxpayer advocate who believes in limited government, stopping our reckless deficit spending, cutting wasteful congressional perks, and enacting a real reform of our healthcare system that expands consumer choices and respects patient rights; and Debbie Wasserman-Schultz- a committed partisan and foot-soldier for President Obama's reckless and divisive agenda that has failed our country in every respect. Voters will not forget how Debbie ignored the will of the people by aggressively supporting the federal government's takeover of the health care system, and Debbie remains clueless about the true state of our local economy and under what circumstances job creation will actually take place in South Florida. This November, we shall see just how supportive the voters of District 20 are of the big government policies that Debbie Wasserman-Schultz supports- policies that have seriously harmed small businesses and stifled job creation across the District," said Harrington.
"Limited government has made America the freest and most prosperous nation in all of human history, but there are far too many in our political class like Debbie Wasserman-Schultz who do not respect the will of the people or Constitutional limitations on government power. I will never abandon the principles and ideas that have made America great, and I will make our case without apology to the voters of Congressional District 20," said Harrington.
