The Rappahannock County Democrats thank Peyton Williams, Jr. for running for Congress in the 5th District and for his continued service to the Democratic Party. We look forward to supporting him in future endeavors.
Below is a note from Peyton:
I am writing to thank you for the support and encouragement you have given my campaign over the past few months. Today, I am announcing that I am suspending my campaign for the Democratic nomination in Virginia’s 5th Congressional District in 2012.I have spoken with John Douglass to congratulate him on a campaign well run, and to concede that he has the delegates to become the nominee at the District Convention. The important thing now, as always, is to re-elect President Obama, elect Tim Kaine to the U.S. Senate, and support John Douglass’s campaign to defeat Robert Hurt.John Douglass and I are continuing our productive discussions with the goal of uniting the party. I am looking forward to participating in the 5th District Convention and to seeing my delegates and all the good Democrats who will be there. I want to thank my family, my supporters, and my campaign staff once again for working harder than I thought possible and for believing in me.
