"Words fail to express my appreciation for all of the support I received during my campaign for Congress. To the many volunteers who gave their valuable time, and to all of the contributors who donated their hard-earned dollars, I can only say, once again, 'Thank you.' Your support carried me through each and every day of the campaign.
While we did not do as well as we had hoped, I believe we did our duty. Together, we gave the voters the choice they deserved in the critical election of 2012. The outcome was not what we wanted, but we warned the people of Colorado of the incredible risk to this nation if we continue with business-as-usual in Washington. I am grateful and humbled to have been the Republican nominee to carry that message.
We now turn our eyes to the future. As we face the many challenges ahead, I hope you will join with me in prayer for our nation’s security, prosperity and freedom." – Joe Coors
