Here are excerpts:
NewsMakers: Byron Donalds
He seeks GOP nomination for U.S. House.
Lytle: There are a number of candidates in this race ... a huge field, and some of them are relative strangers. It’s sort of like strangers are saying, "Send me to Washington to represent you."
Lytle: But this seems to be the year for that, when the status quo has let us down.
Donalds: Well the status quo led us to the $15.3 trillion in debt. The status quo has led us to $80 trillion in underfunded liabilities.
What I tell voters when they meet me for the time is this: If you always do what you have always done, you will always be where you have always been. You’ve never done me before. You’ve never voted for me before. I believe that the way we get ourselves in order ... I believe we get things accomplished in America is you have to have clear vision.
