Thaddeus McCotter to Run as U.S. President

Five-term Republican Congressman Thaddeus McCotter announces his intent to run as U.S. President during a July 2 Independence Day celebration in Whitmore Lake, Michigan.

"What we need in Washington is someone who understands that the wave of the future is not big government, it is self government," said the 45-year-old Congressman.

"Well, I think it’s about the message, and I think it’s about the experience here in Michigan, what we’ve gone through and what we continue to face, and what we hope to spare the rest of the country by getting it right soon." he said when asked about his edge from other candidates.

McCotter is the third member of the House of Representatives to enter the race for the Republican nomination and the tenth serious candidate.
