The full text of Scott’s endorsement follows.

“I enthusiastically endorse Lynda Wilson for State Representative! Lynda understands that all political power is inherent in the People, and government’s power is on loan from the People. She has demonstrated in her own life and business the fiscal responsibility and accountability that are so needed in the Legislature. Lynda works hard to meet as many constituents as possible and hear their stories; this indicates a willingness to listen and serve. Best of all, she has the backbone that is necessary to withstand the pressure in Olympia and fight for her neighbors back home. It will be great to work alongside Lynda Wilson next January and have another ally who stands boldly on the entire Republican platform.”
