The primary election in District 47 is over. I want to sincerely congratulate Gary DeLong on winning the first leg of this congressional race. However, before ending the Steve Foley for Congress campaign, It's important to me to take the time to extend a huge thank you to the people who have supported my campaign these last several months. Together we have stood for true liberty. We have waged a campaign of bold solutions. We remained rooted in the United States Constitution and true free-market economics. We stood united on principles that we know can move California and the entire nation back in the direction of freedom, opportunity, and prosperity. And you know what? We made an impact! On just $2500 and with your help, we pulled in 7.3 percent of the votes in this district! We also proved something extremely important. It turns out that you can run a smart, viable campaign on not much more than sheer principle and draw a substantial number of votes. With just a little more money and a few more resources, we now know the potential exists in the near future to beat career politicians right here in newly formed District 47--without breaking the bank. Unquestionably, a candidate must have at least some funding to achieve name recognition and communicate his or her platform to constituents. But with a solid platform, determination, social media tools, and the right campaign structure, a principled candidate can advance with a far smaller budget than anyone might previously have believed. That discovery is encouraging to me, and I hope to you as well. We shouldn't allow it to go to waste. While this campaign is over, the principles in which we all believe remain. While I won't be heading on to the general election, I will continue to fight with you for the restoration of principles in Washington and in California via the advancement of future principled candidates. Again, thank you for believing with me in something higher and better. Thank you for contributing to the Steve Foley for Congress campaign. Thank you for furthering restoration of the constitutional and free-market principles that can solve the problems we currently face. I am deeply appreciative.
