Friends and Supporters – It is with a heavy heart to inform you that I have made the decision to suspend my U.S. Senate Campaign. As I reflect, I am taking this action knowing that this is just the beginning for us and not an end. This political journey has taken us across this great state many times where we have met so many terrific people who care about our country and our commonwealth which is what we will always remember. As we close in on the Christmas season and another “New Year”, I wish you and your families all of God’s Blessings and hope to see your very soon. Best John Vernon
