I want to take a moment today and thank you all for your support during this campaign. Because of all you did, I am returning to Washington to serve as your conservative voice in the House of Representatives. I am deeply honored and grateful for the trust you’ve placed in me. I pledge to you that I will continue to fight hard every day for the people of the 24th Congressional District.
With the reelection of Barack Obama and continued Democrat control of the U.S. Senate, we face very difficult and serious times ahead. Despite this, I remain committed to pushing back against the Obama Administration and their big government, far-left agenda.
Last night’s election does give us some hope. Thanks to the strong support and hard work of millions of conservatives across Texas and across the nation, we elected a new conservative leader to the U.S. Senate – Senator Ted Cruz. Also, Republicans will remain in the control of the House of Representatives for another two years. It is critical that House Republicans remain united and committed to conservative principles. We are the only thing standing between the liberal Democrats in Congress and their desire to turn America into a Euro-socialist nation. And I look forward to standing firm with my fellow conservatives in the House to hold the line against more spending and taxes.
Thank you again for all of your prayers, support, and hard work during this campaign. To all those hard working volunteers who knocked on doors and made phone calls and worked the polls and contributed financially to my campaign – I thank you from the bottom of my heart. I couldn’t have done it without you. I look forward to continuing my fight for constitutionally limited government, economic freedom, and individual liberty. It is an honor to serve you in Congress.
Congressman Kenny Marchant
24th District of Texas
