Peter Greenwald ends his bid for VA 7th District seat and endorses Dave Brat for Congress against Eric Cantor

By Floyd Bayne

peter_GreenwaldPeter Greenwald has made a tough decision and ended his campaign for Virginia's 7th Congressional district seat. He has endorsed Dave Brat's effort and offered his support.

I know that this was not an easy decision for him to make. Only someone who has put himself "out there" can fully understand the sacrifices and emotions that go into such a decision. I have met, spoken with, and spent time with Pete and have come to think of him as a good man who would have made an excellent representative, but alas, it was not to be. I have much respect and admiration for Pete and his efforts and the manner in which he made the decision to end his campaign. I hope he does not let his aspirations to represent his fellow Virginians end there.

Thank you for offering yourself up as a candidate, Pete, and thank you for being a class act. Now, let's go kick Cantor's butt.

From Pete Greenwald -  March 27th, 2014:

Dear fellow patriots,

As of this morning, I have made the decision to end my run for Congress. In October I announced my candidacy to challenge Eric Cantor for the 7th Congressional District of Virginia. Defense of freedom and love of country compelled me to run and speak truth in an effort to restore our Constitutional Republic.

In November, we held our first rally. Since then I have had the opportunity to meet many of my neighbors and to speak at several Tea Party as well as county GOP committee meetings. With your help, I also established a strong presence on the internet via Twitter and Facebook. Conservative and Christian talk radio allowed us to reach an even greater audience. Through it all, I am glad God gave me the opportunity to provide a clear, bold, Christian, Conservative, Constitutional voice in this primary.

I am especially grateful for my supporters who spent countless hours in the cold days of January, February and on in to March in a never-ending winter collecting the signatures needed to file. I also thank God for my wonderful wife Anne, my biggest supporter over the last five months. She faithfully served next to me coordinating your efforts, traveling with me across the 7th District, and successfully reaching out to various media outlets. Although we met our goal for signatures, we do not have the “boots-on-ground” and financial support to move forward.

At this moment in our history we the people - all Americans - face a Constitutional crisis and must rally behind true conservatives who understand that God grants us our rights including our right to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness and that government exists to secure those rights. We must rally behind men and women of courage who will keep their oath to support and defend our Constitution against all enemies foreign and domestic. Together we must return our federal government to the limited, defined, and enumerated powers of Article I, Section 8.

As I end my run, based upon my deep devotion to God, family and country I recognize and endorse Dave Brat as a true conservative who must defeat Mr. Cantor. I applaud him for his efforts, and I pledge to do all that I can to help him in his campaign. I ask you to do the same. I believe this is the best way forward to secure the blessings of liberty for generations to come.

In closing, my thoughts turn to Patrick Henry, our fellow Virginian and patriot who stated, “It’s when the people forget God that tyrants forge their chains.” I pray that We the People - beginning with my fellow Christians and Patriots - would once again place our trust and hope in a sovereign God and NOT in government.

Yours in Christ for liberty and our Constitutional republic,

Commander Pete Greenwald, USN (retired)
