Will Griffith endorsed Congressman Eric Cantor because the Congressman has been a loyal supporter of America, the War on Terror and has supported the research of the PHRAMA Companies who have spent their own money to allow our children to swim in public lakes and in the parks of our great country. Will Griffith was once a critic of the PHARMA companies, but investigated how much they actually do to protect American lives and allow our children a better future. Griffith is an adamant opponent of using PHARMA to cure all of our ills. But in the words of Will Griffith: 'When PHARMA can come up with a pill that cures our country of congressional malpractice, then I'll support them 100%". Griffith said Eric Cantor is one of the best Republican candidates running for congress in 2008, and that Ohio Senator Kirk Schuring runs 'tops in my list', said Griffith. This is the leadership my children and your children need for a better future than we had. Let us do our part and elect our lawmakers according to our conscience'.
