There comes a time, in every election, when a controversy or controversial endorsement is given. Today is such a day. As I stated earlier today, it is my intent to decline this endorsement and at 14:02 CST, I tendered my letter to the organization in question to decline their endorsement. I further requested all likenesses, logos, banners, quotes, data about me and my campaign be removed from their databases, social media pages/accounts and sister pages. This notice also serves notice, their organization does not have expressed written, or implied consent in publishing my likeness, logos, banners, quotes, or video of me.
Attached inside this blog post, I have made available a signed copy of my letter, refusing the endorsement.
