U.S. Senate candidate David Dewhurst released the following statement today after it was reported that Texas' unemployment rate dropped to 6.9%:
"Texas now has an unemployment rate under 7%. Our country is hurting, millions have lost hope and stopped looking for work, and the clock is ticking. We must bring the Texas model of cutting spending and balancing budgets to Washington to help put Americans back to work. I am running for the U.S. Senate to cut taxes, stop the out of control deficits and borrowing, and get the federal government out of the way of job creators. If we institute Texas' pro-growth policies across America, we can turn this country around and get our economy back on track."
