George Demos is a prominent Greek American prosecutor of corporate criminals on Wall Street. He lives in New York with his fiancee Chrysa. As he told Americans some time ago, “I am George Demos. I believe in freedom. I believe in America. I believe in Long Island. I am a conservative. I am pro-life and I want to be your Congressman.”
The New York-based politician was about to run for Republican election against Suffolk Republican Tim Bishop. But he announced his decision to withdraw from the race because he is going getting married. However, some critics comment that he had no other choice since he was an outsider for the nomination.
This is the letter he wrote to thank supporters and to explain the reasons of his unexpected decision:
Everyone who knows me knows of my deep commitment to public service and to being a strong voice for the Conservative cause. Equally, everyone who knows Chrysa and me, knows of our deep commitment to each other and the joy we are sharing in preparation for our wedding a week from now.
These two facts have now come together. Both my impending marriage and my race for Congress are deeply important to me. But our marriage comes first.
Therefore, today, I am going to set aside my political aspirations for a while so that I can focus on our family. Both Chrysa and I look forward to reentering the political debate in the near future and to fighting for the Conservative Republican values we share.
