Paul Mitchell Announces Endorsements of Supporters From Across the 10th Congressional District

Over 100 Republican Activists, Business Leaders, Farmers, Community Leaders and Sportsmen Publicly Endorse Mitchell Campaign

Dryden, MI – Businessman and job creator Paul Mitchell today announced an initial list of public endorsements of over 100 conservative activists, business leaders, farmers, community leaders and sportsmen from across the 10th Congressional District.

“I am very humbled by the outpouring of support from conservatives across the 10th District,” said Paul Mitchell. “Since I entered this race last July I have held hundreds of meetings and events with voters, job creators, sportsmen, farmers, community leaders and others who all have the same desire, leadership that will deliver conservative change.   The support we announced today comes from all corners of the district, represents a broad cross section of the base of our party, and are people who have confidence in my ability to provide the leadership we need.

“One thing is clear, the base of our party strongly desires new voices who will do more than vote no, but will provide the leadership needed to achieve conservative solutions. They are responding to the fact that I am not a politician, but someone who has achieved success in the private sector, isn’t afraid to take on entrenched interests, will always fight for the “home team”, and will work with anyone who shares my desire to achieve conservative results. I am honored by the support we announced today, and over the coming weeks we will be sharing the voices of many of supporters as they explain why they are joining my campaign for conservative solutions,” Mitchell concluded.
