Here are some parts of the article in which I was featured:
All weekend in Dearborn, people were anxiously asking me when I would be running again. Denisa asked me as well during our interview if I planned on being a candidate again.
"It's just the belief in the democratic process," said George Ajjan, who mounted an unsuccessful campaign in 2004 as the Republican candidate against Congressman Bill Pascrell Jr. "Just as economic monopolies are bad for consumers, political monopolies are bad for the voters. When there is no challenger out there giving a different perspective on the incumbent's record, then the incumbent is free to hide his shortcomings and overemphasize his successes."
Despite the apparent long odds, underdog candidates should never be taken lightly, Ajjan said. "You never know when lightning strikes, you never know when your opponent gets indicted. And if you're well-positioned, you can ride a tidal wave into office."
Ajjan is proof that there is life after the vote count. Although he lost to Pascrell by more than 89,000 votes, he now hosts a popular Web Site, georgeajjan.com, on which he propounds on state and international politics, and his writings have appeared in many publications.
"I'm sure you'll see my name on a ballot again one of these days..." ;)
