Good morning friends,

As you know by now, the primary election is over.  I am sorry to say that we were not successful in our bid to represent the second district in the NC Senate. The last three months has been a great learning experience for me, and I have been humbled by all the support you have shown.  It has been clear to Tiff and me what great dedication we have from within our community and the entire region.

The journey has not been an easy one. Everyone involved put in countless hours and hundreds of you spread the word about our campaign. We all realized that by running we would be subjected to criticism. When we came under the spotlight, dealt with vandalism and untruthful statements, you rose to the challenge with dignity and respect.

Our team has a lot to be proud of. With your help, we were able to organize more than a dozen events that were attended by well over 1,000 people. We were able to field courteous and positive teams of volunteers in all three counties that worked the polls with respect and professionalism even in difficult situations. We were able to gather a great deal of support, made new friends, and strengthened other relationships along the way.  We were able to deliver our message about a better NC and our vision to help with pride. Most importantly however we all made this leap of faith for the right reason, to do what we thought would be best for the people of our communities.

I am proud of what we accomplished and can’t express how much I appreciate everything you did to support me. My promise to you today is that I will continue to work for the people of NC, and I will do all I can to represent you with dignity. My faith is that God has a plan for us. While it may not be clear today, as long as we do what we can to make this a better place, the path will be enlightened.

We all need to focus on the November elections and do all we can to ensure that the Republican party is represented in the NC legislature, the NC Governor, the US Congress, and US President.

Thank you again for your support, friendship and hard work.

Randy and Tiff
