Subject: Major Announcement: Mike Huckabee has endorsed Ready for Delegate (plus our new tv ad is up!)
Quick message for you because the campaign trail is going crazy. I promised you two big announcements… Yesterday, I was honored to receive the endorsement of Mike Huckabee in my race for the House of Delegates. This is big news and we are working right now to spread the word. You can read our press release below and you can see the release from HuckPAC (Gov. Huckabee’s organization) by clicking here.
Also, we have made a cable television ad purchase with our new ad "Energetic Conservative". I want to thank my brother Joel for doing a great job filming and directing the ad. You can go to the front page of www.JustinReady.com to watch the commercial.
While you are there, if you can spare a contribution (many of you have given recently, thank you!), please give what you can. We want to air the ad even more than we already are and we want to get the word out about Mike Huckabee’s endorsement of our campaign.
Finally, we still need door-knockers and poll workers for Election Day so if you can spare some time, please contact me directly. Sorry for the shortness but I’ve got to get back out on the trail. Thank you for all you are doing to spread the word and don’t forget to vote on September 14th! You can also vote right now, early, until September 9th, at the Carroll County Senior Center on Stoner Avenue in Westminster.

Mike Huckabee Endorses Justin Ready for State Delegate
Yesterday, Mike Huckabee, former Presidential candidate and Arkansas Governor, announced his endorsement of Justin Ready for the Maryland House of Delegates.
“HuckPac and I are proud to endorse Justin Ready for Maryland State Delegate from District 5A. Justin has the right kind of experience needed to represent the people and he is ready to serve,” said Huckabee.
“A small business owner, Justin understands firsthand how excessive spending and high taxes wreak havoc on a business and he will fight to reduce taxes and eliminate wasteful spending. Electing Justin Ready will help bring real positive change to Maryland,” Huckabee continued.
“Justin is pro-life, pro-family and strongly supports 2nd Amendment rights. Justin has also been endorsed by Maryland Right to Life, so we will never have to question where he stands on the sanctity of life,” concluded Huckabee. “Please join me in supporting Justin Ready for Maryland State Delegate. We can count on Justin to fight for us in Annapolis.”
“I am honored to receive Governor Huckabee’s endorsement. I’m committed to standing for conservative principles and will work to change the culture in Annapolis,” Justin Ready said. “The support my campaign has received is truly humbling. Together, I know we can turn Maryland around.”
Governor Huckabee joins a long list of conservative leaders who have endorsed Justin Ready, including current District 5A Delegate Tanya Shewell, who is retiring, Sen. David Brinkley, Sen. E.J. Pipkin, House Minority Whip Chris Shank, Former Secretary Larry Hogan, Sen. Janet Greenip, Fmr. Del. Carmen Amedori, Del. Bill Frank, Del. J.B. Jennings, and Del. Tony McConkey. Ready has also been endorsed by Maryland Right to Life, the Maryland Republican Assembly, Marylanders for Preservation of Firearms Ownership, and Citizens United.
