R. Lee Wrights has ended his campaign for the Libertarian Party nomination for governor of Texas. From the former candidate’s website:
We would like to thank the donors who gave when they honestly didn’t have the spare income to justify investing in Lee and his message of Peace and Prosperity. They will always be our beloved friends and family.
Best wishes to all LP Texas campaigns in 2014. We hope they will receive the support they deserve.
Speaking of LP campaigns and support, please deliver on your promises if you give them.
You can’t run a campaign on promises and likes on Facebook.
Farewell and Best Wishes,
Thomas Hill – Campaign Manager
Wrights went on to add his own comments:
No candidate can persevere unless he has the support of those who wish him/her to run. Unfortunately, I found I had far more broken promises than I had genuine support. Thomas Hill, and Cindi Lewis Maidens before him, are absolutely correct. As nice as they all are I, nor any candidate, can run a campaign on “likes” and “shares” on Facebook. It takes “dollars” and”cents”. Again unfortunately, I had far more of the former than I did the latter.
This is not a failing of Thomas Hill and R. Lee Wrights! If you promised along the way to support this campaign only to later make excuses instead of payments…this is your failing. I fulfilled my end of the bargain, so those who can’t keep their word are responsible for this failure.
Thanks to Nicholas Sarwark for this news.
