Full text of the speech is below:

Hi, I’m Mary Jones and I am running to serve as your Representative in the 2nd Congressional District of the Commonwealth of Virginia.

We need a representative that will act with urgency. The people want someone who will help President Trump Repeal Obamacare, crack down on illegal immigration and rebuild our Military.

Hampton Roads and the Eastern Shore deserve better than they are getting out of Washington right now. Like you, I am sick and tired of electing Republicans who say one thing to get elected only to go to Washington and forget about us, the voters who sent them there.

Obamacare is collapsing, placing financial stress and burden on our families and crippling our economy. For seven years we have heard Republicans tell us that if we vote for them they will Repeal Obamacare. Republicans have the majority of both houses with a President who has “pen in hand” and they still haven’t followed through on their promises. They are out of excuses.

Families cannot keep their doctors; their premiums and deductibles are skyrocketing so much, people can’t even afford to go to a doctor. My very first priority will be to fight to Repeal Obamacare and no special interest is going to buy my vote.

Stopping illegal immigration is critical to our National Sovereignty, Security, and Economy. Our immigration system costs our Nation billions of dollars in handouts, hurting legal Americans who are trying to get a job, and bogs down our justice system with overcrowded jails and rampant crime from gangs like MS-13. I will crack down on Illegal Immigration when I am elected, and I will support the President’s pro-America initiatives like the wall and his merit-based immigration plan.

Barack Obama destroyed our military readiness and gave us a military that is the smallest it has been since World War I. I will work tirelessly to rebuild our Military. President Trump wants to grow our Navy to 350 ships. I will work hard to ensure many of those ships get built in Hampton Roads. Our economy was devastated by the military drawdown, and it is time our region prospered again while helping our Nation’s readiness at the same time. With threats like North Korea and ISIS, we need our military men and women to have the best equipment so that they can come home safely to us, having been victorious in battle.

President Trump spoke in clear language and the people responded by electing him.

Congress apparently did not get the memo.

Our current Representative has accomplished very little to move the President’s agenda forward, and even worse, often criticizes and undermines the President for his own political gain. Instead of serving his constituents, his energy seems to be spent promoting special interests.

I support President Trump and am proud to say so.

The people of the 2nd Congressional District deserve to be represented by a bold leader that understands the urgency to act. Here in Hampton Roads and the Eastern Shore we know our history. This is where America started, Patriots fought and defended Liberty and Freedom and I will continue that fight for you should you elect me as your Representative.

I am asking for each of you to help me in this fight by voting and supporting me.

God bless you, God bless the Commonwealth of Virginia and God Bless these United States of America.

Thank you.
