I want to thank every volunteer and supporter who helped us pull off another upset. We proved Republicans want proven leadership. We stuck to the issues and are proud to be the only 100% pro-life, pro-gun and pro-border security candidate.
We only had 90 days to organize a campaign. We were outspent more than 10 to 1 by a self-financing candidate and presumptive winner. We proved while other candidates can buy endorsements, you can't buy the loyalty of true conservatives who know my no-compromise record.
I also want to thank candidates like Ky Griffin and Colonel Jim Engstrand for the fearless campaigns they ran as they stood for conservative principles. We also must thank great grassroots activists like Larry Pratt and Gun Owners of America, the National Association for Gun Rights (nationalgunrights.org,) the National Pro-Life Alliance, Young Conservatives of Texas, the Republican Liberty Caucus, Chuck Baldwin, Tom Tancredo and Ted Nugent for their efforts to help us build grassroots support.
Now is the time for conservatives to unite and focus on electing the only proven conservative. We are focused on July 31 and we look forward to continuing to discuss the issues and my proven, no-compromise, 100% conservative record.
