Friends and Delegates,
Due to your service and that of the candidates, we have a united Republican Party here in Utah House District 6. It is incredibly humbling to have the mantle of Republican Party Nominee rest upon my shoulders. It is a great responsibility and one my wife and I don’t take lightly. It truly is a sacred opportunity to serve you, serve the good people of this District, and serve the people of our great state – Utah.
We will work diligently to win the primary race – I will work diligently as your Representative in the House. I commit to you I will utilize my conservative principles to build a vibrant Utah, fight for freedom and liberty, protect moral principles for our society, protect the U.S. Constitution and our rights within, and fight for state sovereignty free from federal overreach. I will exercise faith-based integrity, reason and hard work.
We have an important primary race ahead of us. Because of the unity we have built as a Party, because of the sacrifices made, it is imperative we all work together for a victory. The outside forces that would divide, disorganize and ruin our Party remain. We must fight against these forces. A united Republican Party can do it. I call upon each of you to commit to this campaign. To unite together behind your nominee. To get the word out to the voters of our District. To do all you can to help.
There will be many opportunities to help. Our campaign will keep you posted. Right off the bat, we need as many volunteers as we can recruit. Please let me know via email if you would like to volunteer or sign up at http://www.corymaloy.com/volunteer-or-contact.html. Many within our community may want to make a donation to the campaign. You or anyone you know who may want to make a donation can do so at http://www.corymaloy.com/donate.html.
I thank each of you for your service. It isn’t easy and there isn’t a lot of time to vet candidates. But, you each came out of your homes representing your families to participate in your neighborhood precinct caucus meeting, ran as officers and delegates and exercised your responsibilities to the very best of your abilities. You did well! This process is the grassroots of our Republic. It is the proper way to elect our representatives. It is a system I love. I will do everything I can to protect the caucus/convention process, and continue to do everything I can to keep your voices heard and relevant. Linda and I have made many new friends and associates during this campaign – we are grateful.
Now, a word about John Morris. I’ve known of John for many years but didn’t know him that well until this campaign started. Through this race, I’ve been able to get to know him more. He is a good man. An intelligent man. A principled man. Our race was very competitive, which I loved. It was clean. It was a good race for both of us – a good race for you the delegates. I was fortunate enough to come out on top at the Convention but just barely as you all know. I think that speaks to the caliber of your candidates and the hard work you put in as delegates.
John told me during the week following the Convention, he and his family along with his campaign team met, discussed, and prayed. Together they came to the conclusion that the best thing for him, for the Party and our District was to end his campaign so everyone could unite behind one candidate and help pave a victory for the nominee of our Party. The most important thing he said to me was that he felt that’s what the Lord wanted him to do and he was at peace with his decision.
I have the utmost respect and admiration for John. He was in it to win it, but when it finally came down to his principles, the things that were good and right, he willingly stepped aside respecting his high principles and values. We will see much more of John. He is and will be a great servant.
