Vermont Business Magazine Republican candidate and Army veteran Gerald Malloy has won the Republican primary nominee in Vermont’s race for US Senator. Malloy beat former federal prosecutor Christina Nolan 43% to 39% with Myers Mermel getting 18%. This leaves Vermont’s November election between Malloy and Congressman Peter Welch. Welch gained 88% of the vote in the Democratic primary on Tuesday.

“It’s safe to say all our hard work is starting to pay off, but the fight to bring about change only continues from here” said Malloy in a statement Tuesday night. “I would like to especially thank my supporters thus far, who have recognized that America desperately needs real fixing and who chose me and my platform to best represent their needs. We the people are one step closer to having a real influence on everyday politics and policies that have been enacted by out-of-touch, federal elites. As Vermont’s primary candidate, I will continue to advocate for policies that revitalize our nation and assure the prioritization, support, and a better future of and for the American people.”

As a US Senator, Malloy will ensure economic prosperity by tackling detrimental issues such as the national debt and the out-of-control spending of Congress. He pledges to protect and defend the freedoms of every American dictated by the Constitution as the Oath of Office commands. Last but not least, Malloy promises to maintain a strong national defense by supporting our law enforcement and common-sense law and order policies to curtail the national crime wave.

Gerald Malloy is a man of great integrity, experience, leadership, and performance. Now more than ever our country needs someone like him to get our government back on track, in the right direction, for our future.
