Senate Candidate Comes To Town

An announcement from the Roanoke Tea Party:
Roanoke Tea Party welcomes E.W. Jackson
Come hear US Senate candidate Jackson in Roanoke on October 27 

When E.W. Jackson announced his candidacy for the US Senate race in 2012, his resume marked him as an unusually accomplished man.
● US Marine veteran
● Summa Cum Laude, University of MA
● Harvard Law School Graduate
● Harvard Divinity School Graduate
● Published author
● Business owner
● Law school professor
● Pastor
● TV commentator

Members of the Roanoke Tea Party board had a chance to meet with Jackson this past summer, and spoke with him at some length about a wide variety of issues. While we didn't each find him in 100% agreement with all our personal pet concerns, we found him to be a sincere student and determined protector of our Constitution as written and amended, willing to go out on a limb to speak the truth about where our federal government has gone wrong.

On top of that, he is a passionate speaker and a fearless advocate for his positions.

Since that time, we have been looking for a chance to bring him to speak in Roanoke, and are pleased to announce his appearance at the Holiday Inn Tanglewood this Thursday (October 27) at 6:00 p.m. All are invited, and there is no cost to attend.

Members of the media are also invited, and Jackson has agreed to stay and speak with anyone who would like a moment of his time.

His chances of beating George Allen for the Republican nomination may appear slim at this point, with the establishment Republicans falling in line behind George Allen. Still, we feel that a vigorous primary is the best way to select the strongest candidates, and urge Roanoke Valley residents, regardless of party, to take advantage of this opportunity to hear his message.

In Roanoke, Jackson will address topics of interest to all Virginians: jobs, education, health care, national security and government spending. You can also expect to hear a stinging rebuke to George Allen for agreeing to debate the expected Democratic candidate months prior to the Republican primary being held.

He will also entertain questions from those in attendance.

Please plan to join us on October 27. Bring an open mind and heart, and consider whether E.W. Jackson isn't exactly the sort of man we should send to the US Senate.
