Dear Friends,

Several months ago, we embarked on a journey to promote positive changes for our country and fellow citizens. At this point, I find it necessary to discontinue my campaign for United States Congress. It is a decision which has and will weigh heavily for some time. I feel this is necessary in order to devote my attention to personal and family matters which would distract from the campaign and its goals.
My dedication to help bring about changes which reflect a commitment to basic human and civil rights remains. I will continue to be present and help to further the cause in other ways. It has been a distinct honor and privilege to have been a part of our team and this endeavor.

Most sincerely and with deepest gratitude,

Murray A. Holcomb
