Congressional Candidate Tom Watson’s Campaign Takes Flight

Labor Day to Be Marked with a Watson Banner Fly-By, Sept. 5

Tom Watson, Republican candidate for Congress, today announced his campaign would celebrate the end of summer and the beginning of the fall campaign with a beach outing complete with a “fly-by” along local beaches.

“Labor Day is a great time to bring friends, supporters and family together to be grateful for what we have, and to prepare for the fall election. It is also a special time to remember those people who don’t have jobs because of what has happened over the last two years in Washington.

It is the perfect opportunity to start reminding people that the fall election is right around the corner, and that we have an opportunity to change Congress by changing our Congresswoman. To help remind people of that, our campaign will be flying an airplane along the Santa Barbara beaches with a Watson for Congress banner.

Our campaign begins a new chapter this weekend, starting in the skies over the beaches, and soon in people’s neighborhoods with our door to door effort. People of the 23rd district will have a clear choice in November, and hopefully with a different Congress, next year more people will have real jobs and be celebrating Labor Day,” concluded Watson.
