PRESS RELEASE-Leader McConnell, Do The Right Thing

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Sunday, September 27th, 2015

SCOTTSDALE,  AZ- Senatorial Candidate Alex Meluskey (R-AZ) issued the following statement about the resignation of House Speaker John Boehner (R-OH), and called for Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) to follow the Speaker’s example.

 

“The resignation of House Speaker John Boehner brought to the forefront the need for the Republican Party to turn itself over to a new generation of leaders. I applaud Speaker Boehner for seeing the light and realizing that he was no longer effective and the time was right for him to step aside and allow for the Republican conference to move ahead with a renewed sense of moral toughness.”

“I call on Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell to follow the example of the House Speaker, and resign immediately from Senate Leadership and give the people of Kentucky the chance to elect a true citizen representative who will serve their interests, instead of the interests of the political insiders in Washington D.C.”

Mr. Meluskey continued,

“It was Speaker Boehner and Senator McConnell who repeatedly told the Party faithful that if we just controlled Congress, all of those planks of the conservative Republican platform, which they hold near and dear, would come to pass, and that the Obama agenda of fundamental transformation would be halted. Instead, what we got under their leadership was a Republican agenda of compromising the conservative principles of the party platform, through capitulation and surrender to an already powerless Democrat Party.”

“Leader McConnell would do a great service to the people of these United States, the state of Kentucky, the conservative movement and the Republican Party if he followed the example set by House Speaker Boehner and resigned his leadership position and his Senate seat in order to allow for a new generation of leadership and a true citizen representative to advocate for his state.”
