3 Minute Speech:
Good Afternoon, Ladies and
Gentlemen, fellow Candidates, my name is Doctor Thomas Abshier, and I am a
Republican candidate for the US Senate. I thank you for giving me this
opportunity to share my vision for our Nation and the State of

Why am I qualified to be your next Senator?

I thank you for your time,
your attention, and your vote
