Preston Korn Suspends Campaign
To Support Sandra Livingstone For CD-1

Flagstaff, AZ, 7/26/2008 – Preston Korn announced this morning to the Arizona Republican Executive Committee that he has suspended his campaign for U.S. Congress and is now supporting Republican candidate, Dr. Sandra Livingstone, for the same seat.
Korn explained, “My campaign has always been about making a needed change in the culture of Washington.  I believe that the first step in this process is to elect representatives who will base their decision-making on what is best for our future generations rather than the next election.  Our nation is facing some very significant challenges which have only been heightened by Washington’s poor stewardship.”
“Our district has an opportunity to elect someone who does value people over position.  Dr. Livingstone and I line up very close on the issues, and most importantly, in our belief that honesty and quality of character are of utmost importance in a leader. Because of this, I have decided to suspend my campaign and focus my efforts on supporting Dr. Livingstone for CD-1.  In doing so, I believe that we can achieve a Primary victory for all that I have fought for.”
Livingstone filed for candidacy just before the June 4 deadline.  She was born and raised in Prescott and has taught law and international relations at Cambridge University. She has also worked at the U.S. Department of State where she worked on policies related to human rights and religious freedom.
Korn stressed his great appreciation for his supporters. “I want to sincerely thank everyone who has supported my campaign.  I know that you may be disappointed by this news.  Rest assured that I would not suspend my campaign for anyone less than someone who would stand just as firm on the issues and make the same decisions that I would.  Dr. Sandra Livingstone will do that.  I ask you now to give her your vote and your support.  With our combined efforts, we can make a difference in Washington. I will be involved in the Livingstone campaign and plan to continue to fight for what is right for many years to come.”
Korn also remarked, “Hopefully, this is the only time I will be telling people not to vote for me!”
