Mirmar Beach, FL - On Thursday, October 14, 2010, Miramar Beach resident Raymond Netherwood announced that he was withdrawing his candidacy for the U.S. House of Representatives, District 2 seat.

Mr. Netherwood thanked supporters and all of the groups that extended invitations to meet their members and the public during the campaign season.

In explaining why he is withdrawing from the race, Netherwood said, "Mr. Boyd has been in Washington too long. He has been, and remains, a lapdog for Nancy Pelosi and his representation shows a disconnect with his constituents and a disregard for the wasteful spending in Washington. We need to get Mr. Boyd back on his farm ... and my continued running, as with the other two No Party Affiliation (NPA) candidates, only serves to increase the odds that Mr. Boyd might get re-elected."

This was Mr. Netherwood's first run for public office as an Independent/NPA Write-in candidate.

Mr. Netherwood has endorsed Steve Southerland (R) who he hopes will help steer Washington back towards "the center."

Mr. Netherwood stated, "I am withdrawing now, rather than on November 1st because absentee and early voting are upon us. I ask anyone who was going to vote for me, to not do so, but to cast your ballot for Mr. Southerland. If I receive any votes at all, they will only serve to make a win for someone other than Boyd more difficult. In fact, I challenge the remaining NPA candidates to honestly assess their campaigns and consider withdrawing and endorsing Mr. Southerland."

"Ms. Berryhill and Mr. McKain have spent considerable time and resources and should be thanked for making the race more interesting. I wish them both all the best."

    If you like Paul McKain, then you'll know there is a significant difference between him & Southerland. McKain has not reversed his positions on the U.N. and the 17th Amendment (the latter after a Boyd TV ad- and he's supposed to stand up to Pelosi?). He also has not wasted over $5,000 in lost discounts and penalties operating his business. So why is it you want to send Southerland to Congress?

    Thanks Mr. as much as I like Paul McKain, he also needs to bow out to keep Boyd out of Washington and our pockets.....while I am at for Nick Maddox and keep Fhaell out of our pockets too.
