As a way of keeping everyone up to date on my campaign progress, I am starting this Blog. I hope you can tune in regularly. Here are a few recent happenings. I have hired a great campaign manager. With his experience and track record (36 wins and 2 losses), I am more optimistic than ever . Soon, I plan to formally propose debates with the other republican hopefuls. I am eager to debate/discuss issues face to face. The sooner the better as far as I am concerned. My September 30 Haywood County fundraiser is going to be a huge event. It will be at the Laurel Ridge Country Club in Waynesville. I welcome any thoughts, concerns or questions. I also invite you to my facebook page (BruceOconnell for congress). I am ready to serve you and work harder than anyone. I ask for your support.
