Press Release: Jim Spurlino Responds to the President’s Final State of the Union Address

January 12, 2016

As President Barack Obama delivers his final State of the Union address, congressional candidate Jim Spurlino responds to his legacy in office.

“While Americans produce goods and services, professional politicians like Barack Obama produce speeches. Tonight, Mr. Obama showed once again that he’s well out of step with the people of Southwestern and Western Ohio. Nearly every accomplishment he claimed was either an overstatement or taking credit for things that other people have done.”

“During this speech, at least five congressional Democrats invited illegal immigrants to sit inside the House of Representatives chamber to hear the speech,” Spurlino said. “That’s a disgrace. One of the police officers present should have arrested them and sent them back their native countries. But in Barack Obama’s America, lawbreakers get a first class seat to a national event while law-abiding citizens get fewer jobs, higher health care costs, and increased taxes. I’m not a professional politician, and I’m running for Congress to change all that.”




Jim Spurlino is the only major Republican candidate who is neither a government employee nor a professional politician. He built a business from the bottom up that now employees over 100 people, headquartered in Middletown. Spurlino volunteers much time and resources to early childhood intervention. He believes in the power of the private sector to reduce the need for costly government expenditures. Spurlino’s success as a businessman and community leader make him the best candidate to fill the open congressional seat for Ohio’s eighth district.
