Dear Friends:

I was as surprised as you were to read the Clarion Ledger article
yesterday about David and Jill’s voting history. It did not fairly
represent the David and Jill that we know, admire and respect. They’ve
both made important commitments over the years to good government and
the Republican Party. Like you, I am enormously grateful that a man of
David’s integrity and character would join in the rigors of a political
campaign to represent Mississippians in Congress.

David tells me that he and Jill vividly remember voting in those
elections that the newspaper questioned. David sent a staffer to find
their signatures and confirm. Unfortunately, a press release was sent
out by the campaign staff without David’s knowledge and approval. It
never occurred to either David or Jill to verify the signatures. David
accepts responsibility for an honest mistake. Unfortunately, the
election commissioner’s office reports that the voting affidavits that
would have confirmed their participation are missing.

A lot of us have known David Landrum for many years, and I know you’ll
agree that we need a man of David’s character and his tough, get things
done, no nonsense approach to tackle the complicated problems in
Washington. I’m proud to support my friend David Landrum, and I hope
you’ll join me with your endorsement in an ad to run in the Clarion
Ledger. The text for the ad is below. Thank you for your help in
sending David to Washington.
