As Schultz bows out, he backs Young — surprising Zaun camp

Prior to the next round of voting, David Young gave Matt Schultz a chance to speak.

“It has been an honor serving as your secretary of state,” Schultz said, and got a standing ovation.  Schultz finished last in the previous round of balloting and was eliminated.

“I want all of you to know how much I respect David Young. We need somebody who can go to washington & fight who’s conservatrive and who can win,” Schultz said as he endorsed Young’s candidacy at this nominating convention. “…I’m asking all of you who supported me to get behind David.”

Young made a few remarks in the time he had remaining, then Monte Shaw spoke. Shaw focused his remarks on foreign policy in this go round, telling the delegates the U.S. cannot be the world’s policeman, but America must understand the dynamics of foreign policy.

Brad Zaun saluted Schuultz as “the secretary of state in the history of the state.”

“(Schultz) definitely had the liberal media after him,” Zaun told delegates, before continuing: “I’ve got to try to win some of you guys over here.”

“…We have got to send someone to Washington DC that holds accountable this unconstitutional liberal president and I’ll give you my word. I will,” Zaun said.

Voting commenced at around 2:30 p.m.
