Running  for elected office is a huge undertaking and I appreciate all the individuals who are committed to participating in the process .  It takes enormous time and effort to campaign and raise money.  This democratic process is one of fundamental foundations America is based upon and to be a voter is to honor those who came before us and secured these rights we enjoy today.
