FOLLOWING IS A STATEMENT FROM THE 7th DISTRICT GOP CHAIRMAN REGARDING BREAZEALE'S STATEMENT:
Frank Williams, Chairman of the N.C. 7th Congressional District Republican Party, issued the following statement in response to Will Breazeale's announcement that he is supporting Democrat Mike McIntyre:
"You can learn a lot about people by how they handle adversity. Shortly after being soundly defeated in the primary, Will Breazeale left me a voice mail saying he was leaving the Republican Party. The fact that he is now willfully taking steps to enable Nancy Pelosi's left-wing agenda because of his petty personal grudge against Ilario Pantano is revealing.
One has to wonder if Mr. Breazeale ever truly believed the things he said on the campaign trail. If I were Mike McIntyre, I would not want this endorsement from Will Breazeale's 'Sour Grape Express'."
