Annapolis – State Senator Andy Harris, the Republican nominee in Maryland’s first congressional district, congratulated John McCain for winning the Republican nomination for President of the United States.
Andy Harris released the following statement:
“I congratulate John McCain on winning the Republican nomination for President of the United States. Senator McCain’s compelling life story of courageous service to our nation makes him a genuine American hero. John McCain is an experienced leader with bold solutions to the most pressing issues facing our nation today. I am proud to be a member of John McCain’s team in Maryland.
“John McCain offers voters a clear alternative to Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama’s big government tax-and-spend liberal philosophy. Senator McCain’s belief in lowering taxes and eliminating wasteful government spending to stimulate our ailing economy stands in stark contrast to the Democrats’ desire to raise taxes and increase government spending which will only push our nation into a recession.
“Over the next eight months, I will be campaigning throughout the first district as a member of John McCain’s ticket. I look forward to serving with him in Washington when I am a member of Congress, and John McCain is the President of the United States.”
