If in fact there is another election in the 2nd District, I plan to seek that office as a Republican. I believe that none of those seeking the office have been able to fully address the important issues facing the district and that once the voters are presented with facts and not a series of insults against the other candidates, my being a Republican won't be a primary issue.

Hello 2nd District, and a special greeting to the 38,733 that voted for me, I thank you. The phrase for the day is: "GET SMART" VOTE FOR MARCUS LEWIS FOR CONGRESS APRIL 9TH, 2013 www.marcuslewisforcongress2012.org

"Get Smart"?!?!? I used to love that show!!! Forget it Marcus... You don't have a chance in hell... You are wholly unqualified to represent even yourself let alone the 2nd district. You garnered 13% of the vote in the election. The people that voted for you had NO idea who you really are and clearly only voted for you because your name was not JJJ... You are a self-absorbed charlatan who is running to line your pockets with taxpayer dollars. You have shown yourself to be a petty, small-minded buffoon and not worthy of holding public office anytime anywhere.
Marcus Lewis November 15, 2012 at 04:05 AM
The time is right now for my candidacy. 38,733 voters thought so and believed as I do. Clearly, if you want real change to come to this blighted district run by crooks, thieves & sex addicts you MUST choose someone different... And that person whether you like me or not is Marcus Lewis.
