Quang Pham, fiscal conservative and Republican candidate for California’s 47th Congressional District, said today that he will no longer seek the nomination. The filing deadline to appear on the ballot is March 12.
According to recent polling, Quang Pham would have been competitive in the primary election,” Congressman Ed Royce said. “But he realizes that the ultimate goal is to defeat Loretta Sanchez and that a bitter primary fight would leave the winner with fewer resources to accomplish our mission.”
Several senior Republican leaders praised Quang’s candidacy and his political future. “Quang’s energy, passion and intelligence are impressive. The National Republican Congressional Committee (NRCC) just enrolled him in our Young Guns Program. Perhaps more importantly, Quang is the consummate team player, and his future in Republican politics is bright,” Congressman Kevin McCarthy, chief deputy whip and head of recruitment for the NRCC, said.
Scott Baugh, Chairman of the Orange County Republican Party, added, “I applaud Quang Pham and I respect and support his difficult decision. We welcome his participation with open arms.”
As a business owner and Marine Corps combat veteran, Quang Pham thoroughly impressed many of us in the New Majority,” Tom McKernan, Chairman of New Majority Orange County added. "We admire his desire for unity and his commitment to the long term success of Republican values. We are encouraging him to stay active the Republican Party."
“Winning a seat in Congress requires full commitment of time and money” said Quang Pham. “Yet my business and my employees now need all of my focus. In addition, the dynamics of the race have changed significantly.”
