RNC Chairman Michael Steele
Today is my favorite day. Why? Because it’s Election Day…
It’s my favorite day because the Republican Party’s message affirms faith in the individual. Americans are intelligent people who, when empowered to keep their own money and make their own choices, are best able to build a good life for themselves and their families. Election Day is an opportunity for Americans to elevate more representatives to public office that believe and represent this core principle.
That’s why I am now headed to Parsippany-Troy Hills, NJ, to join you, the grassroots, in support of our statewide and legislative Republican candidates.
Our candidates have offered a compelling alternative to the status quo. The economic policies that the current Democrat incumbent has forced on New Jersey over the last 4 years has crippled the NJ economy and cost jobs for New Jersey families. Despite the odds — President Obama easily carried the state in 2008, defeating Republican John McCain by 15 points and registered Democrats significantly outnumber Republicans — these Republicans have offered a new direction…a direction that offers growth and opportunity, not more government intervention and further job loss…as well as empower the individual, not government.
