Archer prepares for final weeks

CLINTON — Second Congressional District Republican candidate John Archer continued his campaigning in the final two-week stretch before the election, speaking at the Clinton County Republican women’s luncheon on Tuesday.   

Speaking to the group of 40 republicans (both men and women) Archer, a Bettendorf attorney, stressed that his success is tied to the that of Republican Presidential nominee Mitt Romney and running mate Paul Ryan.

He encouraged attendees to persuade others to vote Republican in order to get the country back on sound financial ground.    

“This is not the most important election in my life time.  This is not the most important election in your life time. This is the most important election of my 3-year old daughter’s lifetime,” Archer said. “We have one chance to get it right and it’s Nov. 6.”

After speaking briefly, Archer fielded several questions from the audience, most of which focused on the 2008 health care reform act.

He said he agreed with Gov. Mitt Romney’s belief that “Obamacare” should be repealed, but said he and the presidential nominee differ in some beliefs about the law.

“When we repeal it, we also have to have the replacement ready to go,” Archer said.

Archer’s stop in Clinton comes three days after he and opponent U.S. Rep. Dave Loebsack, D-Iowa, faced off during a televised debate.     

Going into the final two weeks, Archer said he’s feeling positive about defeating his two-term incumbent opponent.  

“We’re feeling very good.  The excitement and enthusiasm we have been seeing is outstanding,” Archer said.  “We are going to work until 9 p.m. Nov. 6. We’ll rest Nov. 7.”
