Conservative Thaddeus McCotter Withdraws From Presidential Race – Will Focus on Re-election

This afternoon Rep. Thaddeus McCotter withdrew from the Republican primary. The Michigan conservative will seek re-election in his Michigan district.

Today, September 22, 2011, U.S. Representative Thaddeus G. McCotter (MI) has issued the following statement:

“Today, effective immediately, I have withdrawn my candidacy to become the Republican Party’s nominee for the Office of President of the United States of America.

“I have decided to seek re-election to continue to serve as your United States Representative for Michigan’s new 11th Congressional District; and, I am committed to promoting and implementing a platform of principled conservatism.

“Truly, Michigan and America’s best days are ahead of us because of you. Together we will transcend our challenges; revitalize our economy; defend our freedom; and bequeath our exceptional nation to our children.”

Unfortunately for Rep. McCotter, his campaign never got off the ground.
Good luck to Michigan conservative in his re-election campaign to the US House of Representatives.
