Sam Rasoul: Why I am not running

Over the past several months I have received scores of emails and inquiries as to why I am not running for Congress this election cycle.

As many of you know, I was married for about nine months before I began my two year endeavor to give a voice to those in need across our district and our great country. Upon the completion of the wonderful experience of running for public office, my wife, Layaly, and I decided it was time to start a family.

Along with over 100 volunteers and paid staff, many of you got to know my family who were an integral part of my campaign. Family is very important to us, so when it came time for me to become a father and a better husband, I poured everything into what I believe to be the most important responsibilities I will ever have.
