Dear friends and supporters,
This morning, as I reflect on the whirlwind of the past year and on our great achievement last night, I am overwhelmed with gratitude.
On the strength of your hard work, and a committed network of dedicated supporters across Alabama, the Byrne for Alabama campaign carried the night -- earning more votes than any of our opponents (see below) in the Republican race for governor!
It's hard to imagine that just a little more than a year ago we started this campaign from scratch. With God's help and a lot of elbow grease we've built the state's finest campaign team, assembled an army of distinguished volunteer leaders, opened and staffed local campaign offices across the state, and scheduled and attended more than 400 meetings, luncheons, forums and other public appearances. Together we made a stand against special interests and raised the funds that have enabled us to share our vision with the people of Alabama.
So now, with the first step on the Road to Real Reform behind us, I want to congratulate each of our primary opponents, thank them for their willingness to serve, and commend them for a job well done. With that, we will now turn to the important task at hand and dedicate our every effort to winning the Republican nomination for Governor on July 13!
I thank you again for all you have done to bring us to this magnificent point in our campaign. Rebecca and I, and our family, are honored to share it with friends and supporters like you. And now, as we continue on, we sincerely solicit your continued support and earnest prayers.
