Chris Flowers withdraws from CD 7 race and endorses Ruth McClung

Thursday, June 17, 2010

First, I would like to give my sincere thanks to all the people who have helped me so much in my bid for the Republican nomination in Congressional District 7. I hope that all of you who have supported me so generously with your time, effort and money will continue to do so down the road in all my future endeavors. I have not given up the dream of representing the people of Arizona with the conservative values and traditions I hold so dear. Upon careful consideration, however, I have decided to withdraw from the race.

I didn't make this decision lightly. Arizonans have a right to the kind of representation that will honor the legacy of our forefathers and the courage of our nation. Right now, we have neither. However, being new to politics, I perhaps underestimated the time and physical constraints involved undertaking such a tremendous-if tremendously worthwhile-challenge. But make no mistake, I will be back and better prepared to make another run two years from now should Raul Grijalva remain in office. Which brings me to an important point.

I have said from the beginning that 2010 is a critical year for Arizona and our great nation. We cannot allow the quickly accelerating spiral into socialism and federal government domination to continue. So I urge all of you who have been so supportive of me to put your efforts behind another candidate for CD7: Ruth McClung.

Ruth McClung is bright, dedicated and, above all, honest. I know that she will make an excellent representative for the people in our district. Raul Grijalva represents the very worst aspects of our political system. Ruth McClung represents the very best. So I urge you, please, do everything you can to support Ruth and help send her to Congress.

Again, thank you to all the people who have supported me in this endeavor. Without you, I would never have made it this far, and I look forward to seeing all of you on the campaign trail sometime down the road.

Sincerely and Respectfully,


Chris Flowers
