Dems retreat: Dodd drops out

Dear Friends:

Your support has been tremendous, and I greatly appreciate it. Together we sent the message that we don’t want politicians like Chris Dodd in Washington. Today many of your voices were heard when Chris Dodd announced that he will not be running for re-election in Connecticut. Here is the statement that I released this afternoon:

“While Chris Dodd has come to represent all that is wrong with Washington, his decision not to seek re-election is not the solution to the problems the people of Connecticut or the United States face. The problems we face are systemic in Washington and the fight to fix our broken system of government is more important than ever.

We will not fix the problems created by Chris Dodd by sending his protégé to replace him.

From the beginning, our campaign has been about putting our state and country back on the right track. Connecticut families deserve a government that stops spending our money like it is their personal bank account. We need pro-growth policies that cut taxes, drastically cut government spending, and put an end to the bail-outs and buy-offs that have become business as usual in Washington, D.C.

The problems every American faces today are serious and we need courageous leaders who are willing to fight for what they believe and not accept the status quo because it is the politically expedient path. I look forward to continuing to visit with Connecticut voters from across the state to share my vision for economic prosperity and a return of government that truly is of, by and for the people.”

We will win this campaign, and together, we will return our country to greatness.”

With Dodd out of the race, we need your help now more than ever. The Democrats are ready to annoint another liberal, Attorney General Mark Blumenthal, to be their nominee. We must stop them!

Please contribute $25, $50, $100 or even $250 to my campaign, so we can bring our common-sense, conservative vision to Washington.

Thank you,
Peter Schiff
Republican US Senate Candidate
