Blunt Goes for Whip

WASHINGTON-House Majority Whip Roy Blunt (Mo.) today announced his candidacy for the position of Republican Whip in the 110th Congress and issued the following statement:

“Yesterday’s election results were a directive from the American people for Republicans to act like Republicans again. We must seize this opportunity to reaffirm our conservative principles, return to Republican unity, and restore faith in the American people in our agenda and ability to tackle the tough issues on their behalf. The Whip will be an integral part of the effort to secure a Republican majority in 2008, and I look forward to fighting that daily fight on behalf of the conservative cause and the American people.”
