For Immediate Release: January 28, 2010
In response to a recent attack from a new and unknown opponent, the Bradley Beauchamp for Congress campaign released the following:
Bradley Beauchamp has been civil in his interaction and discourse with other Republican candidates throughout the months he has been campaigning. He has presented his case, over the better part of a year, to the citizens of CD-1 while being respectful of others’ positions. Now, at the 11th hour of the cycle, an absolute unknown has entered the race and decided to attack Mr. Beauchamp instead of focusing his efforts on the defeat of Ann Kirkpatrick. The Beauchamp for Congress campaign finds this both irresponsible and unacceptable, and has thereby chosen to respond.
Bradley Beauchamp has already shown the political courage to lead while campaigning throughout the district. Instead of name-calling and complaining through press release, Mr. Beauchamp has driven over 30,000 miles across the district, met with thousands of people and proven to the voters of Arizona that he is the one candidate with will to lead and the knowledge necessary to take back Arizona’s First Congressional District.
“Bradley is the candidate to beat in CD-1, so I understand he’ll get attacked,” said campaign manager Erik Stauber. “What I find both funny and sad is the manner in which he was attacked, by a man who should be a friend to conservative Republicans like Bradley. Bradley Beauchamp shows political courage in everything he does while campaigning. He tackles the issues head on. He has left a thriving business to risk everything for the good of the nation and the Constitution. He is the only candidate who has his Juris Doctorate, a degree obtained to better understand the rights and freedoms of our nation. Indeed, Bradley Beauchamp has had the courage to obtain more endorsements than anyone in the field, and he has the courage to defeat Ann Kirkpatrick in 2010.”
Bradley Beauchamp is running for Congress because the Constitution is being undermined, our individual freedom is under attack, and our fundamental liberties hang in the balance. He knows it is time for a reality check in Washington, D.C. to remind Congress that America’s greatness comes from hard working families and free enterprise, not billion dollar bailouts or government takeovers. He is the one candidate who will defend freedom, defend the Constitution, and defend the American Dream.
