To my phenomenal supporters, endorsers and team, the results are in: we came up short in votes but not short in enthusiasm, character, energy and courage.
We ran a spirited, relevant issues and solutions based primary campaign focused on the key challenges facing Vermont. The issues and challenges we championed affect all Vermonters, not a few. The issues and challenges we championed will have a significant impact on our children and our children’s children. The issues and challenges we championed are not new and need to be addressed now.
I’ve always said, “I would rather stand alone, than not stand at all.” Thankfully and gratefully, I didn’t have to stand alone.
Thank you for your tireless support.
Thank you to the volunteers who made heroic personal sacrifices and put in countless hours organizing our grassroots primary campaign.
Thank you to our supporters and endorsers for having the confidence to provide me a taller and larger soapbox to stand upon and share our message of less government and more freedom by – stopping single payer, cutting spending, reducing property taxes, enabling school choice and protecting the federal and state constitutions especially, Vermonters rights to own and bear arms.
Thank you to my wife, children (whose summer was cut short) and family for their caring support and individual sacrifices.
You have made me a better person and candidate.
As Governor, I will;
“People should be empowered AND accountable to live the lives they choose.”
