He mentioned giving two-thousand dollars to a local VFW Post to help pay postage for care packages when his opponent refused to. He added it is about neighborhoods. and keeping the middle class in place who have home ownership, and are not dependent on a socialist government. He urged the almost two-hundred people who came to the rally to sign up to help him, get their friends to join his movement to become the new Congressman from the 14th District, and to most of all vote in the general election.
