Joe Carr's former opponents for the Republican nomination talk on his switch.
"My decision and my campaign are not about the other candidates in the Fourth Congressional District. I am confident we will win no matter who runs and I am focused on running a grass-roots, people-first campaign. The people of the Fourth District are hard-working, honest conservative folks and they deserve a strong an effective voice in Congress, which right now they do not have."
“Regardless of the final slate of candidates, I plan on running solely on my independent record in Congress. For me this race has never been about political ambitions. Rather, I am seeking another term because I believe the people of the Fourth District deserve a strong, conservative voice in Washington that will always put principle before politics.”
