I had a chance to meet General John Douglass a couple weeks ago, and was very impressed. I definitely feel like he’s a strong challenger to Frank Wolf, aka the rubber stamp for John Boehner and Eric Can’tor’s radical, right-wing agenda in the House of Representatives. Clearly, 2012 should be the year that Frank Wolf is sent to a well-deserved retirement, and replaced by someone like General John Douglass. Anyway, check out the press release and well-made video and see what you think.
Our country is under tremendous stress. But too many in Washington are playing political games instead of facing up to the challenges of jobs, energy, transportation, education, health care, national security, and more.
I’ve served this nation for over three decades. I’ve served presidents of both parties. I rose to the rank of General because I have a proven record of standing up, taking on the tough fights, and winning them.
That’s why I’ve decided to run for Congress. I hope that you’ll join me.
This won’t be easy. My opponent has been in Congress for decades, getting a free pass for too long. As I’ve talked with my neighbors throughout Virginia’s 10th district, I’ve heard them loud and clear: It’s time for an independent voice and a focus on practical solutions to our nation’s challenges.
We face grave challenges. But when it comes to America, failure is not an option.
