Nashotah, Wis. – Psychologist Brad Boivin issues a statement announcing his withdrawal from Wisconsin’s 1st Congressional District Primary:
“I decided to seek the Republican nomination for Wisconsin’s 1st Congressional District because of my strong belief in representative government and because Speaker Ryan’s announced retirement opened the door for someone like myself, who has served the needs of the community as a private citizen for more than twenty-five years, the opportunity to serve in the People’s House. However, given the current state of the race, and in the spirit of good stewardship, I have decided to withdraw my candidacy.
“After thoughtful consideration of all the remaining candidates, I have decided to endorse Mr. Bryan Steil. I believe Bryan is the one remaining candidate best suited to represent the people of the district and I will do what I can to contribute to the strength and viability of his campaign and to help build a Red Wall against the much-talked-about Blue Wave this November.
“Moving forward I will continue to advocate for the issues I believe in and will continue to work with state and federal representatives and agencies to inform sound public policy.
“To all those who supported me during this brief but meaningful journey, I say, ‘Thank you!’
