Last night, Ted Cruz spoke at the Republican National Convention in Cleveland, and said,
That’s really what elections should be about. That’s why you and millions like you devoted so much time and sacrifice to this campaign. We’re fighting not for one particular candidate, or one campaign, but because each of wants to be able to tell our kids and grandkids, our own Caroline’s, that we did our best for their future and our country….
We deserve leaders who stand for principle, who unite us all behind shared values, who cast aside anger for love. That is the standard we should expect from everybody. And, to those listening, please don’t stay home in November.
If you love our country, and love our children as much as you do, stand, and speak, and vote your conscience, vote for candidates up and down the ticket who you trust to defend our freedom, and to be faithful to the constitution.
I don’t know who Ted Cruz will choose to vote for in November, but I think our choice is clear, especially after this week’s Republican National Convention – we must vote up and down the ticket for the Democratic candidates. We must turn the Senate blue, and change the PA state government before the Congressional lines are once more redrawn, in order to give the Democrats a chance at taking back the House of Representatives and more accurately reflect the voters in this state and this country. And, of course, we must elect Hillary Clinton and defeat Donald J. Trump.
Remember, every political race matters, from local government to county to state to national. You can make a difference, with your time (volunteering to make phone calls, register voters, deliver yard signs, etc), with your money (to candidates directly, or to groups like UPDC who are working on voter registration, voter information efforts, Get Out The Vote activities, and supporting local candidates), and most important of all, your vote in November.
