An Entreaty To John Shadegg

Many conservatives and anti-pork activists were disheartened to hear of John Shadegg's decision to retire from the House. Over 140 of his Republican colleagues signed a letter asking him to reconsider and run again for his Arizona seat. Now, some of us outside of Congress want to also ask Rep. Shadegg to reconsider. If you'd like to add your voice, please contact Rep. Shadegg's office at 202-224-3121.

Dear Representative Shadegg,

As conservatives in the Movement and advocates for a free society, we were saddened to read of your decision to retire from service as the representative from the 3rd District of Arizona.

We appreciate your sacrifice and commitment to protecting American freedom and liberty during your tenure. You have proven yourself to be an inspiring leader on critical issues facing this country such as holding the line on spending, reforming our healthcare system, and facing the growing threat of radicalism to our sovereignty and freedom.

The country is at a crossroads. And now more than ever your leadership is needed. We therefore ask that you reconsider your decision to retire from your position at this time so that we may continue to have you as a champion fighting for conservative values and principles on Capitol Hill.
