July 19, 2012 - PRLog -- Largo, FL – July 19, 2012 – Darren Ayres, Republican candidate for U.S. House of Representatives (FL-13) is releasing the following response to the Tampa Bay Times endorsement of Bill Young for the U.S. Congress:

On Monday, the Tampa Bay Times recommended Bill Young, but the reasons cited beg some clarification. The editorial itself lists my strengths as being more fiscally conservative and goes on to cite my business experience. This makes a very compelling case for my candidacy against an incumbent who has done little to slow government growth.

The Times also mentions that I have broad support within the tea party movement, the same tea party movement that is largely credited with the Republican takeover of the U.S. House in 2010.

The tea party movement could not have accomplished this in 2010 if their principles and values were markedly different from the electorate at-large, and little has happened since 2010 to change this. If anything, public sentiment locally and across the country in response to the continuing decline of our economy is increasingly conservative. All of this makes for a very compelling case for my candidacy against an incumbent who has done little to slow the growth of government over the past 42 years.

By contrast, I feel compelled to run for Congress to work hard to scale back the rampant expansion of government, but I won't be a career politician as I’ve already had a career in the military and in business. I will not be spending all my time in Washington D.C. I will be a citizen-legislator, accessible to the constituency of Florida’s District 13.

The choice now is between an incumbent with a 42-year congressional career that has been part of the problem and a statesman like our founding fathers envisioned. Having no ties to the political culture of Capitol Hill, I will be free to represent my constituents and remain committed to implementing bold solutions to our country's problems.

Darren Ayres has served his country in the U.S. Air Force, has been ordained as a Christian minister and subsequently served as a chaplain in the Florida National Guard.  Over the years, he and his wife Trish have owned and operated several small businesses. As a national defense conservative, a fiscal conservative, and a social conservative, Darren Ayres understands Main Street America and believes that citizen-statesmen are now needed in elected office as a bulwark against government growth and to return the federal government to operating within its constitutional constraints.
