Thank you so much for your investment of $5,000 in Governor Rick Perry's campaign for President and your help getting others to do the same.
You have taken advantage of a great opportunity to restore our nation and return it to its Constitutional foundation.
Because of your support and the other members of our team, we raised over $205,000 in investments for the Perry for President campaign. We were second in the greater Houston area and third in the state.

With much appreciation for your friendship and support, I remain, as always,
Steven F. Hotze, M.D.
