Bill Greene sent this to me last night, I didn’t get it until this morning:
Bill Greene, Republican candidate for U.S. Congress, announced tonight his endorsement of former Georgia Senator Jim Whitehead in the runoff for the special election to fill the late Charlie Norwood’s seat.
“Jim Whitehead ran a great race,” said Greene. “Whether in public forums, or in meetings with voters, he never engaged in negative politics against me.
We maintained a relationship of mutual respect, and stayed focused on the issues in this campaign. I have great admiration for Jim for doing that, especially considering the negative campaigning that Paul Broun engaged in against me throughout this campaign.”
Greene ran a strong grassroots campaign, focused on the issues most important to the people of the Tenth District. “I truly believe that my campaign helped Jim to formulate stronger positions on issues like Illegal Immigration, the Fair Tax, and the War on Terror,” said Greene. “As a result, he showed stronger conservative colors, which enabled him to connect more with people across the District. I look forward to continuing to assist Jim when he gets to Congress, especially in the vital area of immigration reform.”
