HALL RE-ELECTED TO CONGRESS,
THANKS SUPPORTERS FOR THEIR VOTE OF CONFIDENCE
WASHINGTON, D.C. ...Rep. Ralph Hall (R-Rockwall/TX) expressed appreciation today to voters in the Fourth Congressional District who re-elected him to his 13th consecutive term in office by more than a sixty-eight percent margin of victory.
"I am sincerely grateful for the support of so many voters and the trust they have placed in me," Hall said. "While my votes are cast in Washington, D.C., my heart is in the Fourth District, and I will continue to work hard to represent the interests of all my constituents."
"I was particularly gratified to receive such strong support not only from those who reside in counties that I have long represented in the Fourth District - but also from those who reside in counties that are new to the Fourth District," Hall added. "I look forward to working with local officials to help meet the needs of our cities and communities throughout the new Fourth District."
"There's always a winner and a loser, and I feel for Jim Nickerson, who ran a clean race and was a gentleman," Hall said.
"I am very pleased that President Bush will continue to lead our Nation," Hall stated. "He is an outstanding Commander-in-Chief - and a personal friend - and I look forward to working with him on initiatives that are beneficial to Texas and our Nation."
"I support the President's efforts to keep America safe from terrorist attacks and to ensure that our military continues to be the best-trained and best-equipped in the world. I will work to keep taxes at a minimum and balance the budget through economic growth and cuts in wasteful spending. And I will continue to work for quality and affordable healthcare for all our citizens, improvements in Medicare and Social Security, and improvements in veterans' services and benefits," Hall added.
