Thank You for Your Support!

I would like to extend my sincere thanks and gratitude for all of your hard work and support over the many months of this year’s campaign. When it came time for our community to make a choice as to its representation in Washington, I was proud to once again have your vote.

Throughout my time in Congress and before that as mayor of Dayton, I have fought to assure the principles of our families, seniors and veterans are heard.  We face a difficult moment in our nation’s history. We must refocus our efforts away from the partisanship of the campaign trail, and towards solving the issues at hand – averting the fiscal cliff, staving off the devastating sequestration cuts to our military, which I opposed, and tackling the massive federal debt. These are the issues, which will shape the course of this nation, and it’s future generations of citizens.

I am honored to have your support as we continue our work in Ohio and Washington, D.C.

Sincerely,

Mike Turner

Turner Statement on the Final 2012 Presidential Debate

Congressman Mike Turner (OH-3) released the following statement upon the conclusion of the final 2012 Presidential Debate in Florida:

“Tonight’s final debate highlighted President Obama’s naïve foreign policy and he continued to advocate that America should lead from behind. This is the same policy that creates uncertainty amongst our allies and endangers our citizens around the globe – most recently in Libya. It is time for a President who understands a free world requires leadership from the United States. Mitt Romney gets that. He will restore America’s foreign policy to one of strength, in contrast to President Obama’s policy of weakness.”

Turner Statement on the Second 2012 Presidential Debate

Dayton, OH – This evening, Congressman Mike Turner (OH-3) released the following statement upon the conclusion of the second 2012 Presidential Debate in New York:

“This evening Mitt Romney spoke directly with Americans and showed why he is the right man for these difficult times. His plan for creating jobs and getting our nation on the path to fiscal solvency is resonating across the country. That’s why he was successful this evening and why he will be successful this November. Our nation cannot afford four more years of the President’s failed policies which have left millions of Americans out of work and our federal debt trillions of dollars in the red.”

Turner Statement on Vice-Presidential Debate

Dayton, OH – This evening, Congressman Mike Turner (OH-3) released the following statement upon the conclusion of the 2012 Vice-Presidential Debate in Kentucky:

“I’d like to commend my colleague Paul Ryan on his debate performance this evening. Time and again he has proven to be a thoughtful and serious voice in our national political discussion. Tonight was no different. He offered substantive ideas on how to get Americans working again and pro-growth solutions which will help jump start places like Southwest Ohio. The choice for Ohioans could not be clearer. We cannot afford four more years of failed ideas, trillion dollar deficits, and a struggling middle class.”

Turner Statement on First 2012 Presidential Debate

Dayton, OH – This evening, Congressman Mike Turner (OH-3) released the following upon the conclusion of the first 2012 Presidential Debate in Colorado:

“Tonight Mitt Romney showed that he is ready to lead on the issues important to Ohioans – growing jobs, ending the massive deficits, and placing our nation back on a path to fiscal solvency. Romney’s pro-growth solutions are ones that Ohio needs in order to get back to work. For the past four years, the President has failed to lead on these critical issues facing Ohio and the country as a whole.”

Turner: “Picking Paul Ryan Shows We Are Serious About Putting this Country Back on the Path to Prosperity”

Dayton, OH – Today, Congressman Mike Turner (OH-3) released the following upon Gov. Mitt Romney selecting Congressman Paul Ryan (WI-1) as his Vice-Presidential running mate:

“The choice for Ohioans could not be clearer this fall – the selection of Paul Ryan shows that we are serious about putting this country back on the path to prosperity. Unfortunately, the President has failed to offer a plan to put Ohioans back to work or to end the largest federal deficits since World War II. Gov. Romney has a plan, and our country is in desperate need of leadership.”
