Marta Jorgensen Re-enters Congressional Race
Marta Jorgensen, after dropping out of the race for the 24th Congressional seat, has dropped back in. "I let my circumstances of not having enough money to run the campaign overcome my commitment to serve the people and bring a new attitude to Congress," she said. "I slipped, I fell, I am back."
Ms. Jorgensen says, "I want to bring the campaign out of the back yard tea parties and back onto the public stage comprised of the entire district. Voters in the Central Coast say they are dismayed that there is no one campaigning for the Congressional race. Ms. Jorgensen was approached by several voters throughout the district who said they were not going to vote because they did not feel they had a candidate. "The 24th District needs to have someone represent the entire district, not just a candidate's own backyard," she states.
Ms. Jorgensen is now back in the race for the 24th Congressional District because she believes she is that person
