It’s late summer now and that means primary elections are right around the corner. The congressional race for District 9 is one of the most competitive races in the entire state. As the race heats up, the name you need to know is that of Republican candidate Andrew Walter. I support Andrew as a doctor, and as a close personal friend.

Andrew Walter is a successful small-businessman who understands that private businesses are the best job creators, not the government. He supports economic freedom and rallies against intrusive government intervention and regulation. As a doctor, I know firsthand that government intrusion into private industry only leads to higher prices and lower quality. Andrew simply wishes to place more money into the hands of the people instead of the claws of Washington bureaucrats.

I am close friends with Andrew’s wife, Inning, who is also a doctor, and thus, I know Andrew as a person, not a politician. Andrew is truly a concerned citizen who is running for office simply to help fix the problems that this country is currently facing. He does not wish to stay in Washington forever and become a career politician. Andrew supports term limits for this reason and because he believes that career politicians are the source of many of our country’s issues.

I cannot emphasize how important this year’s elections will be for the future of our country. We stand at a fork in the road, and we must choose the correct path. Remember Andrew Walter when you head to the polls this fall.
