Skeptical at first, yes…convinced definitely. Our country can send young men and women, 18 and over to serve in the battlefield, then why not a 25-year-old to Congress?
When I first met Weston Wamp, I was not sure how a man of his age could possibly understand the goings on of today, and my wife had no interest of speaking with him at all, “because what would he know about todays issues.” But after hearing him speak and address the real problems facing this country, I realized that he is an excellent candidate to send to help fix the broken system.
He is part of the generation that will have to pay for the out of control spending that has been going on in Washington, and is ready to bring a fresh new perspective. Rather than criticize his age and calling it an issue, it should be applauded, when someone is that committed to holding up the principles and the liberties that our founding fathers had fought for.
I am convinced that if we continue to send the same politicians to Washington, we will get the same results. A fresh face that is willing to work to get the job done, but not compromise on his principles is the type of person we need to represent us. Weston Wamp is young, full of character, commitment and passion. We are proud to support him.

We are instructed in the Bible "to not have a spirit of fear." As a stay-at-home mom who repeatedly hears from the older generation that these are the scariest days in America's history, I can tell you first hand that fighting fear is an immense daily struggle. The debt alone my two young children will inherit simply for being American citizens is incomprehensible and unfair.
Indisputably, the elections of 2012 present an opportunity to turn our country back to what our founding fathers envisioned and away from the unrecognizable, unrecoverable mess it is quickly becoming. The Congressional race in our 3rd District is a perfect example. There is a candidate whose youth and energy will deeply invigorate the Republican Party in Washington D.C. which is suffocating from the same-old corrupt politics both parties are guilty of. Young men can perform life-saving surgeries. Young men can lead battles. And a young man will go to Washington with a never before seen passion to get our country back on track. This man is Weston Wamp and my family passionately supports his unwavering principles and promise to really shake up D.C and bring life and energy back to the Republican Party.
Maya Angelou said ?"Fear and Hope cannot occupy the same space at the same time. Invite one to stay." I implore you to vote along with me for Weston Wamp and once again feel hope for our amazing country and our families.

Early voting begins very soon this week. Some voters have already made up their minds who they will cast their privileged vote for, some have not. Personally, I have already made up my mind on the contested races which will be on my ballot.
I was personally involved in who represented Tennessee's Third Congressional District for 16 years and make no excuses for it. Now, we are at a time in our nation's history that deficits, budgets, fiscal restraint and civility among those that represent us are in turmoil. It is adamant that both sides of the aisle work together for the better of our nation and our own district. Quit blaming someone else for failure.
What am I looking for and wanting in a representative to Congress? I want someone fresh who has the guts to work across the aisle, not blaming everything that doesn't get solved on "the other party"...I want someone who isn't trying to "sell" me on a stealth campaign that doesn't differ with what we presently have, thus keeping the status quo...I want someone who will be actively involved in studying the issues, having discussions with others and formulating their voting decisions on what is best for our district and our nation, not just what the minute percentage of registered voters who may respond to an ocassional email asking them how they would vote. I want someone who is part of the next generation who will be responsible for the failed actions of our present Congress that will fall upon them.
I will be casting my vote for Weston Wamp to represent me in the United States Congress. We can send an 18 year old to war on foreign soil to fight for our nation and our freedom.....why shouldn't we send a 25 year old to Congress to fight for our district? The next generation is facing a lot of problems that will not be solved by someone who can't relate to them, and Weston can because he is part of that generation.
I ask that you take a second look at Weston and decide if you want to be represented by the status quo, a small majority of email buddies or someone who will wake up every day, with you, the constituent, on his mind.

I am writing this letter in support of Weston Wamp for Congress. I have been very fortunate to have the opportunity of being involved, engaged, informed and knowledgeable about the electoral process at the federal, state and local level. I have also had the opportunity to engage in conversation with the candidates running for the 3rd Congressional District and been fortunate enough to be present at the debates held thus far.
Weston Wamp has really impressed me at each and every debate and by his hard work and efforts to reach out to each and every voter. He is different and is willing to work across party lines and not play the blame game. The state of country needs new blood in leadership and we as voters need to stop sending the same people to Washington because we will keep getting the same results. I am impressed that Weston knows the problems facing our country and has solutions. He may not have all the answers but he is willing to work across party lines and help get the answers that will get this country back on track.
In conclusion, as we come close to the beginning of early voting, I urge all voters to get involved by educating yourself about each candidate and go out and vote. Vote early, vote smart, vote Weston Wamp.
