U.S. Congressional Candidate Alerted for the Afghanistan Surge


U.S. Congressional Candidate Alerted for the Afghanistan Surge

Oklahoma- April 12, 2010

RJ Harris, Candidate for Oklahoma's 4th U.S. Congressional District, and 19 year veteran of the Army National Guard, has been alerted as part of the surge forces bound for Afghanistan sometime this summer. This will be CW2 Harris' third combat tour having previously served in Desert Storm and Operation Iraqi Freedom. RJ announced his candidacy in January of 2009 initially responding to his opponent's then recent vote for the Bailout. While the timing of this alert is unfortunate, Harris will remain in the race under the protections provided candidates activated for military service by 51 Okl. St. S 3.1 and 26 Okl. St. S 12-101.

"Knowing the high probability of deployments, patriotic civilian employers routinely hire, train and retain Guard Soldiers and I have complete faith that the voters in my district will show that same fidelity once convinced of my absolute commitment to the restoration of the Constitution, the Republic, their individual Liberty and Oklahoma's sovereignty."

Once on active duty, the RJ Harris 2010 Campaign will continue through the rigorous activities of the staff and through personal appearances around the district by allied Liberty Candidates and Tea Party activists willing to speak on RJ's behalf. When asked about the unfortunate fact that his district would have no vote during the short months he is away RJ responded, "right now having no vote for a few months would be better than having more votes from Cole for bailouts, Pelosi's 08 stimulus, the ACORN backed Housing Extension Act, Obama's GIVE Act, funds for Planned Parenthood, or foreign aid to Africa when our own debt is pushing $12 Trillion."
