Richard Boyanton signs pledge to limit terms in Congress

MISSISSIPPI (WLOX) - U.S. Senate candidate, Richard Boyanton, signed a U.S. Term Limits Amendment Pledge Saturday.

The pledge stated: I, Richard Boyanton, pledge that as a member of Congress I will cosponsor and vote for the U.S. Term Limits Amendment of three (3) House terms and two (2) Senate terms and no longer limit.

Mr. Boyanton states the reason for signing the pledge is, "So we have a fair America".
