Democrat Hayden Rogers releases statement on GOPs 11th Congressional District runoff results

Earlier tonight, Republican Mark Meadows won the runoff battle to face Democrat Hayden Rogers for the 11th Congressional District seat. Here’s what Rogers’ campaign released to the press:

Hayden Rogers, Democratic candidate for Congress in North Carolina’s 11th District, released the following statement tonight regarding the results of the July 17th Republican runoff election in the 11th District:

“Both of the candidates in the 11th District Republican runoff election have run very lengthy and hard-fought campaigns, and I congratulate Mr. Meadows on his victory. However, there is a profound difference between who we are; our background, leadership ability, and vision for Western North Carolina and this great nation. I am eager to illustrate those differences to the people of the 11th District and look forward to a spirited and informative campaign.”

    Blah blah blah. How much money do you have, and how much more does God like you than the other guy?

    Yes, there are profound differences between my opponent and me; most significantly, he is a dark gray Republican running as a Republican; I am a light gray Republican running as a Democrat.
