Fort Lauderdale, Fla. – George LeMieux today released the following statement after filing his primary qualifying paperwork in person at the Florida Department of State:
“After more than a year of traveling the state, speaking at Lincoln Day Dinners, winning grassroots straw polls, and visiting with Republicans, I’m proud to file my qualifying paperwork to be included on the ballot for the US Senate Primary.
“Our country is on an unstable fiscal path with our national debt and deficit continually increasing and piling onto future generations. When I served in the Senate, I watched as career politicians avoided the tough decisions, focused only on re-election, and let our debt continue to grow and that’s why I made reducing our debt my top priority, offered a Balanced Budget Amendment to the Constitution, and proposed a budget that would revert spending back to 2007 levels. After seeing all that is wrong in Washington I’ve pledged, if elected, to serve no more than two terms in the Senate.
“In order to preserve our great nation, we need people in Washington who are willing to make difficult decisions, propose bold solutions, and lead America towards fiscal responsibility. I am running for the United States Senate so the next generation of Americans will have the same opportunities to succeed that we were afforded.”
