Thank you for your votes

I wish to express my thanks to those who supported my recent candidacy for the Alaska Independence Party nomination for United States Senate. I’m humbled by your vote on primary Election Day and confidence in me.

Despite my withdrawal from the race, I’m still active in helping elect a new senator with conservative values and one who will go to Washington and fire the liberal, partisan obstructionist Harry Reid, Barack Obama’s point man, so we can make meaningful progress with the national debt, the stagnant economy, Alaska resource development and reigning in a repressive government that has usurped Americans’ freedoms and liberties.
