ROSWELL, GEORGIA — In light of Eric Welsh announcing the conclusion of his bid for Congress, Harold Earls released the following statement —both complimenting Welsh and reiterating Earls’ commitment to running to represent Georgia’s 6th Congressional District:
“First let me say, I’m not going anywhere. Like my service to our country, I am committed to seeing this race through to victory.
We should all take a moment to salute Eric Welsh on his run for Congress and being brave enough to take a stand and say enough is enough.
Like me, Eric is not part of the ‘Good Ol’ Boys Club’. Welsh wanted to make a difference here in Georgia and was not a political opportunist waiting on favorable district lines. Eric and I entered this race to champion the beliefs and values that our community holds close rather than add another recognition or award to our name. While Eric’s campaign may have come to an end, I know that this is just the beginning for him on his journey to stand up for what is right. I wish him and his family all the best.
Men and women from all over this nation have given the ultimate sacrifice to allow our country and its people to remain free, express their beliefs, and speak their minds. I want to make sure that our government does not lose sight of what it was founded upon.
Over the last few years, there has been a growing disrespect within our government for our country and those who serve and have served to protect it. This makes me sick. Congress has become a melting pot of weak leaders who don’t care about you, me, or the United States. I am here to change that. I will lead. I will stand for our values, and I will stand up for you and your family. That is my promise.”
