Dr. Robert Underwood issued the following statement in response to Congressman Michael San Nicolas’ request for Underwood to withdraw:
“Delegate San Nicolas, in requesting a gentleman’s withdrawal from a runoff election, requests we ignore the will of 54% of voters who seek a new direction in leadership.
Our campaign is based upon honoring the will of those we serve and fighting for what is right.
“On November 3, 15,293 voters or 54% of the total voted for someone other than him.
For these reasons, if San Nicolas is unwilling to listen to his constituency, then he should reconsider whether he is qualified to represent the majority of our people in Congress.”
