On Monday, June 11, 2012, Gineen Bresso, Republican candidate for U.S. Congress released the following statement:
“As of Friday, June 8, I have submitted the required documentation and have officially filed my candidacy for the Republican nomination for U.S. Congress against Debbie Wasserman-Schultz in CD-23. I want to thank each and every one of you for your help and support the last few months. The outpouring of support that I have received from people in the district is a testament to the viability of the solutions I propose to reduce unemployment, cut the deficit and create economic growth right here in south Florida. But there is much work to be done.
“Travelling around Broward and Miami-Dade County, from Weston and Southwest Ranches, to Hollywood and Miami Beach, I have had the privilege of hearing from so many of you who are frustrated, as I am, with a broken system of government in Washington, D.C. This election marks an opportunity for America to turn a new corner and restore the principles of our founding fathers. By working together, I am committed to being a true, full-time Representative of the people of CD-23 and with your help and support, we can usher in a new era of fresh, fiscally responsible leadership.”
