A message from Tom Casperson 8/3/2016

Good morning - the sun is shining and, despite the results last night, today is another blessed day.

Please know that I wake this morning with no regrets. We ran a campaign about which we should be proud and in the end, I don’t believe there is anything more we could have done. I understand that people are disappointed, people are frustrated, and people are very concerned about the direction of country. However, we have a special nation. Where you come from doesn't decide where you get to go, that's how a guy on a log truck too can run for Congress. Despite disappointing results, too I remain hopeful and optimistic about America. As Proverbs 16:9 says, "In their hearts humans plan their course, but the LORD establishes their steps." We must continue do all we can to ensure this nation remains a blessed nation.

I'm grateful to my family, my wife Diane, to my four kids for their sacrifice. And, I am grateful to our staff, donors, volunteers who selflessly offered their time, talent and treasure. However, I am especially grateful for those that held me and my family up in prayer. It is because of you that we got this far. I will be forever grateful.

God has a plan for all of our lives and He has things planned for all of us. We await eagerly what He has for us next.

As I did last night, I want to congratulate Jack Bergman on winning this hard fought race.

Again, I join with my family in offering you my sincerest appreciation for all you gave of yourself to me and the manner in which you gave. Thank you and may God bless you and this great Nation.
