Republican Congressional Candidate Richard Grayson Attacks Current GOP House Members for Abandoning Bush Administration on Foreclosure Prevention Act

PHOENIX, July 25 - In a speech last evening at a house party on North 9th Street, Richard Grayson, candidate for the Republican nomination in Arizona's Fourth Congressional District in the Sept. 2 primary, attacked the state's four current GOP House members for "abandoning President Bush, Treasury Secretary Paulson, the entire Republican administration and most of all, the struggling homeowners of Arizona" when they voted against the Bush-backed Foreclosure Prevention Act this week.

Grayson said that Reps. Rick Renzi, Trent Franks, Jeff Flake and John Shadegg all "acted like petulant, irresponsible spoiled children who seem clueless as to the severity of the economic threat posed by the potential for a housing collapse."

If he had been in the House, Grayson told the audience, he would have loyally supported the Bush administration -- and American homeowners and business owners: "I will always put the people over politics and personal pique."
