More Bad News for Eric Cantor – Pete Greenwald Pulls Out and Endorses Dave Brat

Eric Cantor is having a week from hell. He was already worried about his job and resorted to the underhanded scheme of “slating” delegates to rob them of their votes and ensure his own victory.And he was soundly defeated in Henrico on Monday night.

And that was when it was a three way race.

Today it is down to two as Peter Greenwald has decided to exit the race and has endorsed Dave Brat. So as Cantor heads down to Amelia Island to talk with his Union thug friends and his Soros backed buddies about defeating the Conservatives that want him gone, this should give him a bit of indigestion as he enjoys his caviar.

Dear fellow patriots,

As of this morning, I have made the decision to end my run for Congress. In October I announced my candidacy to challenge Eric Cantor for the 7th Congressional District of Virginia. Defense of freedom and love of country compelled me to run and speak truth in an effort to restore our Constitutional Republic.

In November, we held our first rally. Since then I have had the opportunity to meet many of my neighbors and to speak at several Tea Party as well as county GOP committee meetings. With your help, I also established a strong presence on the internet via Twitter and Facebook. Conservative and Christian talk radio allowed us to reach an even greater audience. Through it all, I am glad God gave me the opportunity to provide a clear, bold, Christian, Conservative, Constitutional voice in this primary.

I am especially grateful for my supporters who spent countless hours in the cold days of January, February and on in to March in a never-ending winter collecting the signatures needed to file. I also thank God for my wonderful wife Anne, my biggest supporter over the last five months. She faithfully served next to me coordinating your efforts, traveling with me across the 7th District, and successfully reaching out to various media outlets. Although we met our goal for signatures, we do not have the “boots-on-ground” and financial support to move forward.

At this moment in our history we the people – all Americans – face a Constitutional crisis and must rally behind true conservatives who understand that God grants us our rights including our right to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness and that government exists to secure those rights. We must rally behind men and women of courage who will keep their oath to support and defend our Constitution against all enemies foreign and domestic. Together we must return our federal government to the limited, defined, and enumerated powers of Article I, Section 8.

As I end my run, based upon my deep devotion to God, family and country I recognize and endorse Dave Brat as a true conservative who must defeat Mr. Cantor. I applaud him for his efforts, and I pledge to do all that I can to help him in his campaign. I ask you to do the same. I believe this is the best way forward to secure the blessings of liberty for generations to come.

In closing, my thoughts turn to Patrick Henry, our fellow Virginian and patriot who stated, “It’s when the people forget God that tyrants forge their chains.” I pray that We the People – beginning with my fellow Christians and Patriots – would once again place our trust and hope in a sovereign God and NOT in government.

Yours in Christ for liberty and our Constitutional republic,

Commander Pete Greenwald, USN (retired)

    Even though Commander Greenwald has pulled out of the race, this does NOT take anything away from the fact that he is a true American and we have and will continue to appreciate everything that he has done for his country, the Commonwealth of Virginia, his community and his family!

    I know that Dave Brat sincerely appreciates his support from yesterday’s statement.

  2. John says:

    I hope that David Brat can convince his handlers that Commander Greenwald would be both ally and asset in securing a victory over Cantor. He has an honest integrity born of his Christian faith which guides him. So not only would he be helpful in getting the military vote for Brat but also the fundamentalist Christian vote as well.

Nothing is more conservative than a republican wanting to get their majority back. And nothing is more liberal than a republican WITH a majority.
