Statement by Will Hurd on the Campaign's Next Steps

September 27, 2023

Republican presidential candidate and former Texas Rep. Will Hurd released the following statement regarding the status of his campaign ahead of the second Republican National Convention (RNC) debate:

"Just 14 weeks ago, I became the final candidate to enter the Republican primary field. In the short time since, our campaign received donations from over 50,000 individuals who support our vision and registered at 3% in New Hampshire polling. Unfortunately, we narrowly missed the cut for the second debate and our campaign is at an inflection point.

"I entered this race for a few simple reasons. First, to ensure this experiment called America lasts for another 247 years. Second, Americans deserve better than the rematch from hell between Donald Trump and Joe Biden. If the Republican party nominates Donald Trump or the various personalities jockeying to imitate his divisive, crass behavior, we will lose. Third, not enough people are talking about real, achievable solutions to the generational defining challenges that are in front of us. These include artificial intelligence, our new Cold War with China, and the complexity of the ongoing crisis at our southern border.

"My team and I are constantly evaluating whether we have the resources to chart a path to victory. I'm headed to New Hampshire to spread my message to the Granite State ahead of the First In the Nation primary. Educating voters on how to solve these existential issues is important, and hopefully other candidates will follow my lead."
