    Dear Friend,
    I am making a major announcement soon and I wanted you to be the first to know. On December 14th I am launching my campaign to represent you in Congress. I need to know that my friends and biggest supporters are going to be with me from day one.
    Like you, I believe we have a duty to provide more opportunities for families and small businesses to thrive. As I gauge the support of voters throughout Arizona’s second congressional district and spread the message of fiscal conservatism, I wanted to reach out and be sure you are a part of the journey from the beginning.
    I have a proven record of advocating for hard working Arizonans and intend to continue to passionately fight for our region, state, and shared values as I begin my campaign – I hope you will join me.
    I’d be honored to have you at my launch event.
    – Lea

    Carolyn’s note: Apparently Republican CD 2 Congresswoman Martha McSally will be announcing a bid for U.S. Senate in Arizona (open seat with current Republican Senator Jeff Flake stepping down). Lea Marquez Peterson is the CEO of the Hispanic Chamber of Commerce in Tucson. She is a Republican, and will face off with the Democratic CD 2 nominee after the August 28, 2018 primary.
