Los Angeles, CA, February 03, 2008 --(PR.com
)-- Edward Marshall an outsider write-in candidate for the Republican nomination for President, is announcing the end of his campaign in the primaries, and asks his supporters to consider joining him in voting for Mitt Romney on Super Tuesday.
"Next Tuesday's primaries are crucial for Mitt Romney to have a real chance to defeat John McCain for the Republican nomination", says Marshall. "I'm convinced that despite John McCain's war hero status, he is against lower taxes, supports the death tax, is for amnesty for illegal aliens and is not serious enough about securing our borders. He also helped pass the McCain-Feingold law that limits free speech and campaign contributions to the point that only the rich can hope to win statewide or federal elections."
"Romney", Marshall says, "seems more likely to oppose those views of McCain, and he seems to the best of the leading Republican candidates."
The reason, Marshall says, that his campaign did not attract large numbers of voters, is that the media apparently were not willing to cover the campaign of a person not well known and "not raising and spending the big bucks." Marshall would not accept campaign contributions, and instead, relied on an internet campaign and press releases, which he hoped would lead to media coverage that simply did not occur.
"My campaign website, MarshallYourVotes.org, will remain available, and I'm hoping that over time much larger numbers of Americans will visit that site and see my stands on issues that really solve problems, such as my call for making the first $50,000 of personal income exempt from federal income tax and increasing that exemption by $12,500 every year," concludes Marshall, adding that "MarshallYourVotes.org lists many other problem-solving ideas and stands that we have not heard from any of the other presidential candidates."
