FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Brad Halbrook responds to Roger Eddy’s “suspension” of his campaign.
“I respect Roger’s decision,” says Halbrook, “but will continue campaigning as if I’m the underdog in this race.”
Mattoon – Brad Halbrook (R-Mattoon), candidate for State Representative in the new 110th House District, said that Eddy’s suspension appears to be good news for his candidacy. “I’m going to run as if the race hadn’t changed. I’m going to act as if I’m still in a tough race, and I’ll be sprinting across the finish line on Election Day,” said Halbrook.
After months of hard effort walking door-to-door meeting voters, Halbrook received the news with a phone call from House Republican Leader Tom Cross (R-Oswego). Cross called to update Halbrook regarding Roger Eddy’s announcement.
“Leader Cross was very complimentary and recognized the effort of our volunteers and the sincere passion of our grassroots campaign. Cross made the point that we have a lot of work to do to put our state finances in order. I look forward to winning the primary, general election and representing the citizens of the 110th House District.”
Not taking anything for granted, Halbrook understands that all candidates in this race will still have their names on the ballot.
“You can’t take one piece of good news and take your foot of the gas,” said Halbrook. “The people of this district want a representative that is going to look out for their interests, and I have to earn their support.”
Brad Halbrook is the County Chairman of the Shelby County Republican Party and since 1994 his family owns and operates a farm fence building company. Halbrook is running for state representative on a platform of transparency, accountability and limited government.
