STONE THANKS SUPPORTERS FOR GREAT EFFORT IN GA12, CHALLENGES OTHER CAMPAIGNS IN CLEAN-UP
A new season kicks off the first Wednesday in November
(AUGUSTA, GA) – 12th District Congressional Candidate John Stone tonight thanked all his supporters across 19 counties for their tremendous support through work and contributions in the fight to win back the district to conservative principles, and urged them to continue the fight after tonight’s disappointing poll numbers.
“We had the winning message, but not the winning money,” said Stone. “That is the candidate’s fault, not our supporters, and I apologize to all for not doing a better job.” Stone noted that his opponents outspent his campaign by a 10-1 margin in the last 45 days funded by personal loans and that conservatives should start looking for new candidates who can also self-fund to be competitive. “We need candidates who share our views and have enough personal wealth to dump similar amounts into their campaigns.”
Stone congratulated all Republican campaigns who advance tonight into the next rounds of the elections, and challenged those campaigns not advancing into a race to remove all their signs as soon as possible. “Let’s get the signs off the street and back in the barn or the dump,” says Stone. “Let’s clean up our neighborhoods and roadways, and leave a clean slate for the campaigns that are continuing into the next round.”
Stone says that while the primary results are disappointing, they are temporary. “The great thing about our Republic is whether you are happy or sad with the outcome of a congressional election cycle, a new season kicks off the first Wednesday in November and we are free to get to work again to set things right.”
