The end of the road has come for the campaign of Marc Savard, who was the first to announce in the 8th Congressional race his intention to seek the GOP nomination. The following was posted late last night on his campaign website.
To my friends and supporters,
It is with a heavy heart that I must announce officially Monday morning that I will be leaving the campaign trail. I have been so honored to have had the opportunity to know all of you and to have had the chance to talk about the issues that are so important to our great country’s future. Unfortunately I was unable to sustain the campaign with a reasonable chance of success over the last few weeks with the lack of resources we were experiencing.
I am undeterred however that our country needs good folks to get to Washington and make the necessary changes of direction that are absolutely needed over the coming years. I have had the pleasure of getting to know Reid Ribble, one of my fellow candidates in the race, over the last year, and I wholeheartedly endorse his efforts to continue the fight for our country’s future. I urge you to introduce yourselves to him through his website, his Facebook page, and attending gatherings I will be hosting for him in the near future.
Reid has what it takes to get the job done.
I will be actively working for Reid over the next several weeks till the primary on September 14. Our country demands our attention and devotion.
Thank you for all you did to help the campaign.
A simple guy – organic farmer, painter, & principled conservative from Door County who recognized that our country’s future is at stake, Marc decided to both organize the first Tea Party in Green Bay in 2009 and stand for election. Despite being the first in the race, for whatever reason, Marc’s campaign wasn’t able to gain traction.
While his campaign may be ending, kudos to Marc for having the courage to run for office and bring about change so the focus is on “We the people” as opposed to the special interests. Not everyone is willing to do so.
