Frustrated With Candidate Choices For Congressional Seat, Seaford Man Files As Write-In Candidate

Just days after the Delaware Republican Primary a Seaford man says he’ll take on Scott Walker and Lisa Blount Rochester as an independent write-in candidate for US House of Representatives.

Andrew Webb, who describes himself as a concerned citizen, a full-time HVAC worker, and a drug and alcohol counseling major at Del Tech in Georgetown, filed to run as write-in candidate on Thursday, September 13, 2018.

Webb is a registered Republican, said he became highly motivated to run for the Delaware US House seat in the aftermath of the primary election.

“After considering and seeing our options to represent Delaware in Congress, I have decided to officially run for US House of Representatives as a write-in candidate and clear alternative to Delaware politics as usual. My message is simple: Consistency and Transparency…”

In a statement on social medial Webb said: “Our campaign is intended to represent a broad popular trans-partisan coalition, where the citizens of Delaware can make a true choice of who they want to represent them. There is a rising wave of popular frustration with career politicians and limited choices. I believe that a man of my principles can best represent and serve the People instead of the special interests.”

When asked about the major issues, Webb stated that the economy, individual freedom, national security, healthcare, energy development, and public integrity would be some of the issues he will focus on during his campaign. “I am mainly here to listen to people’s concerns”, he said

Even though Webb is entering late into the election, he believes that with the right outreach and popular support, he can be Delaware’s next US Representative.

“I cordially invite all persons tired of politics, as usual, to actively join us in making a major difference in this election. It’s time that we send Washington insiders a strong message
that WE, the People are the government.”
