A plea to John Shadegg

Over at Captain Ed's place there is a letter up pleading with Arizona representative John Shadegg not to retire from the House. He has been a pork spender's worst nightmare in the House, a staunch supporter of the war, and one of a few Republicans that still holds onto his conservative values. He announced recently his intention not to run for reelection to his House seat, and that he plans to retire:

Dear Representative Shadegg,

As conservatives in the Movement and advocates for a free society, we were saddened to read of your decision to retire from service as the representative from the 3rd District of Arizona.
We appreciate your sacrifice and commitment to protecting American freedom and liberty during your tenure. You have proven yourself to be an inspiring leader on critical issues facing this country such as holding the line on spending, reforming our healthcare system, and facing the growing threat of radicalism to our sovereignty and freedom.

The country is at a crossroads. And now more than ever your leadership is needed. We therefore ask that you reconsider your decision to retire from your position at this time so that we may continue to have you as a champion fighting for conservative values and principles on Capitol Hill.

Captain Ed says if you want to ad your name to the list, give his office a call at 202-224-3121. We already have. We called the day he made his announcement and begged him to stay on. There has been no mention of who might take his seat, though the district is staunchly Republican. Please give the man a call, and urge him to stay. Lord knows we need as many seats as we can muster this election.

Publius II
