FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Date: October 22, 2013
Richard Lynch of Belmont has announced his intentions to run against Patrick McHenry in the Republican primary for the 10th District congressional seat. Lynch, a former manufacturer and previous congressional candidate, is currently a part-time golf instructor.
“You don't know how things work in Washington,” Rep. McHenry had said during a meeting with a group of citizens who met with him to discuss his lack of support for the Fair Tax. These words inspired Lynch. “We, the people, know all too well how things work in Washington and, for that reason, I believe that the people of the 10th district deserve better representation in Washington.”
“Congress does not need experienced politicians, Congress needs people who have suffered the hardships created by those experienced politicians,” says Lynch.
He further states, “We must get back to the founding principles of freedom, liberty, and personal responsibility. But more importantly, we must acknowledge that it was those principles coupled with our Constitution and a free market enterprise system of government that created the greatest nation on the face of the earth. Sadly, Washington has it backwards. It was not a powerful government that created this great nation. It was this powerful nation that created the power-hungry, bloated, over-regulating, unconstitutional government that is destroying the lives of the American people.”
