Rep. David Schweikert responds to House leadership removing him from the Financial Services Committee

Dear Friends,

As you many of you may know, I was informed earlier this week that I was being removed from the House Financial Services Committee as a result of me sticking to my conservative principles. I want to let you know that I do not consider this a setback and I plan to work even harder to save our Republic. I will continue to be unwavering in my commitment to talk about the issues that I feel are important to the future of this country. I have been overwhelmed by the outpouring of support during the last week. I have received literally thousands of calls, emails, and letters from supporters encouraging me to continue the fight for conservative ideals and to not turn my back on my principles. My office has even received calls of support and encouragement from states as far away as Oregon and New Jersey. Many of the country's largest conservative groups, including Club for Growth, Freedomworks, and Heritage Action, have also stepped up to support me and the other conservatives who were also removed from their respective committees. Finally, the hard work of dozens of conservative bloggers, radio hosts, and columnists, who have helped tell the story of what is happening to conservatives in Congress, has meant a lot to me personally and my fellow conservatives in the U.S. House. Thank you for giving me the chance to serve you in Congress and for your steadfast support over the last week. I promise you that I will continue to represent the values that you elected me to uphold. I would not be where I am today without all of you.

Thank you, David
