I’m being told from people in Georgia tonight that Ralph Reed is not running for Congress in the 7th Congressional District. But I’m being told by several conservative activist and pro-life leaders in Washington, D.C. that Ralph is most assuredly in the race.
If the D.C. gang is right, I find it fascinating that Ralph would reach out to them first.
In any event, I have obtained an advanced copy of the press release that will be sent out tomorrow and it seems the Georgia guys are right.
It is below the fold.
I called all of you here today to let you know that my time is incredibly important and yours is not. Much to the dismay of the millions of people who I truly believe worship the very ground I walk on, I will not be a candidate for Congress this cycle. Possibly in the future, after I make enough money to dig myself out of the hole I jumped into in 2006, I will run. A key to that would be Jack Abramoff dying in prison and also the sale of 600,000 more copies of Dark Horse.
I fasted and prayed for many nights on this issue. Now more than ever before we need bold conservatives to run for Congress, not sell outs who are just trying to milk the conservative movement in ways that would shock even Jesse Jackson. I know that I would have won this race without a runoff with the wind at my back of so many people of faith banding together and collectively drinking the Kool-Aid I served them in Faith and Freedom Coalition cups (that I charged them $1.50 for).
But my Faith and Freedom Coalition (send $25 RIGHT NOW) has exploded with support across the country. I simply cannot leave these God fearing, good conservatives without a leader at this critical time (forget paying for your prescriptions this month, send your $25 RIGHT NOW). I can do so much more as their voice through the Faith and Freedom Coalition than I ever could as a freshman Congressman, but only if they send their last remaining $25 right now to the Faith and Freedom Coalition, 16th hole of Sugarloaf Country Club, Duluth, GA 300-send me $25 right now-04. I am the Steve Jobs of faith based politics.
Thank you and God Bless You All, especially if you send your $25 right now, and follow me on Twitter.
