U.S. Senate candidate David Dewhurst issued the following statement this morning after the unemployment rate remained flat at 8.2 percent:
"President Obama and his liberal agenda are not working for Americans, and today's jobs report is another road block to putting our country and our economy back on the path to prosperity. Washington is overrun by career politicians and insiders who lack the real world experience that's desperately needed in today's dismal economic environment. As a lifelong businessman, I've practiced conservative principles to help create jobs and make Texas the strongest economy in the nation by cutting spending, keeping taxes low, and balancing budgets. I will take the same conservative principles and record of leadership as the next U.S. Senator from Texas to repeal President Obama's job-killing policies and put Americans back to work."
