“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.
