Good morning from Washington D.C., where I am attending the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC). It is great to be among so many wonderful conservative organizations and leaders. Yesterday, many of these leaders came together to sign the “Mt. Vernon Statement”.
Last evening, I signed the petition in support of the Mt. Vernon Statement. Please note the following release:
Patricia Lightner Signs Mt. Vernon Statement
Praises Conservative Recommitment to Founding Principles
Olathe, Kan. – Patricia Lightner, Republican candidate for Congress in the 3rd District of Kansas, today announced her support for the Mt. Vernon Statement, which was signed on February 17 by a coalition of 80 conservative leaders at a ceremony near Washington.
The Mount Vernon Statement is a defining statement of conservative beliefs, values and principles penned by a broad coalition of conservative leaders representing a wide spectrum of the movement including fiscal, social, cultural and national security conservatives.
Lightner, who at the time of the signing was arriving in Washington for the Conservative Political Action Conference, added her name to the document via its website, where individuals may view the full document and add their name in support.
Lightner said the Mt. Vernon Statement echoes the message she has been delivering the entire campaign.
“A recommitment to America’s founding principles – particularly limited government, economic freedom, individual liberty and a fundamental belief in the Constitution – is the core message I have been articulating since I entered the race last summer. It was inspirational to see so many conservative leaders come together in support of Constitutional conservatism, and I am proud to have signed on to the Mt. Vernon Statement,” said Lightner.
Lightner further urged all supporters of her campaign to add their names as well.
“To take back our country, we need a grassroots movement coast-to-coast, united in reclaiming those core conservative principles, and the Mt. Vernon Statement can serve as a unifying theme for conservatives everywhere — including right here in the 3rd District. I encourage all of my supporters to add their names to the Mt. Vernon Statement.”
The full Mt. Vernon Statement as available at http://www.themountvernonstatement.com, where individuals can submit their names to add to the petition.
It is an honor to join with so many grassroots conservatives in signing this document. We can be be victorious here in the 3rd District — to support my campaign to uphold the principles of the Mt. Vernon Statement, please consider making a contribution today.
All the best,
Republican for Congress
