Hartline Statement on Election Results

August 6, 2010, NASHVILLE - Jeff Hartline and the Hartline for Congress campaign have issued the following statement regarding Thursday night's election results:

The Hartline for Congress campaign congratulates David Hall on winning the Republican nomination for Congress in the 5th District. Although Jeff Hartline did not win the nomination, he and the entire Hartline for Congress campaign remain committed to the campaign's primary goal: the defeat of Jim Cooper.

"I got into this race for the same reason my fellow candidates did – we all believe it is time to offer voters an alternative to the government-growing, debt-spiraling, tax-raising, job-killing policies that Congressman Jim Cooper has voted for time and time again during his long career in Congress," said Jeff Hartline, who made history this year as the first Republican candidate ever to raise six figures in campaign contributions to challenge Jim Cooper in the 5th district.

"I want to thank each and every person who voted for me or contributed to my campaign in any way,” Hartline said. "Your faith in me is humbling. Congressman Cooper is long past due for a serious challenge to his re-election. While I will not be the nominee running to defeat Jim Cooper in the general election, I assure you that I will continue to battle for the things we believe in. As the great American Revolutionary War naval commander John Paul Jones said, I have not yet begun to fight!"
