After much consideration, I have decided to withdraw my name from the Missouri Republican Primary Election ballot for the United States Senate.
I recently learned that the work I perform on federal grants for the St. Peters Police Department may stop me from seeking partisan political office....
I urge you to vote for Chuck Purgason in the August 3rd Republican Primary Election and to support the winner of this Primary contest in the General Election on November 2, 2010.
