I was at a bar recently, near the old Bethlehem Steel Plant near Dundalk. The host heard that I was considering running for Congress so he asked me to speak. I had no prepared remarks so I spoke from my heart about how American manufacturing jobs had been given away over the past 25 years.
When I finished, a smiling elderly gent walked up to me. He took this button off his lapel and pinned it on mine. He said nothing, as he walked away with a smile.
That man knew somehow, that I would fight for him. His action inspired me to continue on this journey to help save American manufacturing.
