(By the time this is(or it is) printed, it may be too late, but I feel it’s my duty to write it anyway.)
Mr. Editor:
I, for one, am very disappointed by the way our Congressman has conducted himself in this campaign.

To claim he’s been lied about and say he won’t sling mud and then to proceed to do just that is dishonorable.

To claim he is for term limits and stay in office for 30 years is laughable at best. If he really believed in the principle then he would have term limited himself one or two DECADES ago.

To say he’s a tea party guy when the only contact I (organizer of the Greenville Area Tea Party) had from him was when he called requesting an endorsement is insincere at best. Nine months after we held our first tea party here and delivered hundreds of tea bags and messages to his office he called to plead for my endorsement. He offered to put on an event and pay for everything. Tried to tempt me with publicity and crowds. I was disgusted and would have no part of it. If I hadn’t had a prior engagement (which he knew I had) I would have attended and asked him some hard questions.

So, I had decided I could not support him before I even met the candidate I did choose to support. (It was a difficult decision, there are some fine men running.)

A man who sincerely wants to serve the people. A man who understands the Constitution and the intent of our Founding Fathers. A man who supported Ralph in the past with his money and friendship only to have him turn on him when it was clear he was a real threat to his re-election.

Steve Clark is that man I gladly cast my vote for.
