Republican 4th congressional district candidate, Tom Carter, hosted a businessmen luncheon at Mary Mahoney’s Thursday. At the luncheon, Carter tried to relate to the businessmen by telling his story about how he started his own business at age 23. The congressional hopeful touched on why he is different than his opponents, Gene Taylor and Congressman Steven Palazzo. Carter says he felt comfortable with the crowd because they understood his drive not to give up, when others discourage him.

Carter says, “They don't understand something that these businessmen did. I’m an entrepreneur. Every time you tell me I can’t do something, you just filled up my gas tank. Every time you say we can’t do something, then you just said our America doesn’t have opportunities. I am what we stand for in this country. I've started from nothing, and I’ve created, I’ve created, and I’ve created.” Carter says the main issues he is trying to fight for are eliminating debt, appealing the Affordable Care Act, and creating quality jobs.
