Colonel Doug Applegate Campaign Statement on Election Results
In response to reports that Congressman Darrell Issa has won re-election to represent California's 49th Congressional District, Colonel Doug Applegate released the following statement:
"I want to, first and foremost, thank my family and every single person who gave us their time, support and energy in any way, shape or form. Your enthusiasm fueled a campaign no one thought could win and turned it into a force that almost did. You showed that our community wants leaders who put our country over their own politics.
As a Marine Colonel, I know that the hardest fights often take a couple of battles – and I look forward to continuing our fight in the days, weeks, and months ahead. That’s why I’m announcing my intention to run for Congress in 2018. This community deserves leadership that puts people ahead of partisan politics."
