(Troy, OH) – In the wake of the announcement that Speaker John Boehner will be resigning, JD Winteregg has released this statement:
“Like most other conservatives, Americans, and Ohioans, I was elated when I heard the news that John Boehner would be resigning. While I thank the speaker for his years of service, I think this news speaks volumes about the state of Washington DC, the GOP, and conservatism generally.
Every voter I talk to is disgusted with the abysmal failure that is the Republican resistance to Barack Obama. We need candidates who are committed to actually doing everything in their power to halt the slow march of this agenda, and who will not give in to the establishment in Washington DC.
I was the only candidate who was willing to make that principled stand against Speaker Boehner before this announcement, and I will continue the fight against any candidate the establishment, K Street, or Chamber of Commerce runs in John Boehner’s place.
Since I was the only person willing to run on principle, and not just when the seat opened up, I am the only candidate that the voters of the 8th District of Ohio can trust to stand up to the Republican Establishment and the Democrats once elected. Moreover, I am the only candidate the voters can trust to vote for a true conservative as the next Speaker, and not more of the same."
