Mumpower Puts Congressional Campaign On Hold

Press Release - July 14th, 2008

In a Saturday open letter to 11th District GOP officials, Congressional candidate Carl Mumpower has taken the unusual step of putting his campaign on hold, calling a "Principles First" campaign to be Job One. Stepping away from his fight against Shuler in the interest of the betterment of the Republican Party is courageous, considering that the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee has called this contest "a frontline race".

This is a principled effort to get the Republican Party to cease its current embracing of practices which are a violation of our stated principals. When we campaign on the concept of no pork and then allow George Bush and Dennis Hastert to increase pork by 285%, which in total means nearly 4 times as much, it is an insult to our constituents and our party's supporters.
