Ashworth withdrawals – Supports Eric Gurr for Congress

To the people of the 8th district and the American worker,

The reason I entered the race to replace Boehner is because I am tired of American jobs being sent overseas, and I am very offended that the Obama regime chose a foreign firm to build the Obamacare website instead of an American firm (twice). I do not support amnesty, especially when there are 20 millions Americans out of work and I believe unemployment benefits should be extended because there are No jobs!!

All that being said, I did not get in the race to be a spoiler and split the vote among the candidates thereby making it easier for Boehner to be reelected.

I want to thank everyone who has supported my message and platform and announce that I am withdrawing from the race and am supporting Eric Gurr to be the next congressman to represent Ohio’s 8th district. Eric is a good man and we agree on many issues, he is a solid conservative and will make a great replacement to Speaker Boehner.

Please support Eric Gurr on May 6th and let’s send Boehner packing before he can pass amnesty and retire to florida with his millions.
