“Where’s Marty Ozinga?” Day 29
On March 24th, concrete magnate Marty Ozinga announced he was running for Congress, but 29 days later he has still refused to answer a single question about his candidacy or on the issues. The DCCC’s "Where's Marty?" campaign is an effort to get Ozinga out of hiding and answer questions that the voters deserve answers to.
The Ozinga campaign announced recently that Marty will continue to remain silent until the end of this month, depriving voters of any idea of where he stands on the issues. “Ozinga himself will offer no comment until after the county chairmen vote April 30,” said the Ozinga campaign.

That said, the Ozinga campaign manager has
stated, "Marty is busier than ever preparing to be the Republican nominee for
the 11th Congressional District.” He’s already been making the campaign rounds,
he’s advertised his new campaign office, his new campaign website, passed out
campaign business cards, filed with the Federal Election Commission as a
candidate, and has remained in hiding while his campaign manager has handled all
media interviews since announcing his campaign. [Campaign
