We are entering do or die time for my campaign for Congress, and if you are interested in helping the campaign we really need to hear from you. As I have discussed in previous emails, we have created an enormous amount of buzz all over Idaho’s first congressional district, and everywhere we go we are converting voters over to our side. If we can get this message out to everyone in the district effectively, we will definitely win. So in order to do that, I am traveling all over the state holding events, and you can find out the details about three big ones coming up below. We also have our all-important FEC fundraising deadline coming up on September 30th, and if anyone out there was considering contributing to the campaign, now is definitely a key time to do so. Big conservative organizations all over the nation will be evaluating the strength of our campaign based on the numbers we report, and they will make decisions on whether to fund us or not based on how well we do. We really need your help, and if you can possibly do so, I would like to ask you to donate to the campaign today…
We also have three big campaign events coming up. The first is at Athol Baptist Church on September 18th at 7 PM. People will be coming up from Couer d’Alene and coming over from places such as Sandpoint and Bonners Ferry, and we are hoping to pack the place out. And we are also hoping to gather as many of our volunteers from all over north Idaho as possible so we can start to get organized in a major way.
Below I have reproduced the campaign email that we just sent out. This email list is the primary way that we keep everyone up to date on the campaign, and so if you would like to stay in the loop please go to https://www.michaelsnyderforcongress.com/ and sign up to get the emails. As you can see from this example, we sure do have a whole lot going on…
Things sure have been busy in the campaign!
1. First, we’d love to see you at our next three events this month if you live nearby!
I was absolutely floored when I learned what had happened. On Saturday night I was going through my emails, and I discovered that one of my supporters had sent me a message informing me that Ann Coulter had mentioned me in a tweet. I wondered if that could possibly be true, so I immediately went to Twitter to confirm it. It turns out that she had come across an article on Conservative Firing Line in which I had mentioned her, and along with retweeting that article she included the following message: “Michael Snyder For Congress!”
Needless to say, the political establishment up here in Idaho is not going to like that one bit. I have been told over and over again that I am “too conservative” for Idaho, and the RINOs definitely do not want prominent conservatives on the national level getting behind me. Because there is no incumbent, this is a totally wide open race, but many of the “establishment Republicans” in this state would rather have a steaming pile of garbage win than see me take this seat.
They don’t like me because I am unconventional, I am a fighter, and I am not afraid to stand up to members of my own party. I am very open about the fact that if I win I plan to campaign against RINOs all over the nation, and so as you can imagine that is not making me a lot of friends among the establishment. That is why I need your help. The establishment money is not going to get behind me, so in order to win this must be a grassroots effort. If you would like to contribute to the campaign, you can do so here…
I think the fact that I am a fighter is why Ann Coulter likes me. For way too long we have put up with spineless Republicans that give the Democrats virtually everything that they want. If the Democrats are going to get everything their way no matter who is in power, what is the point of even having a Republican Party?
The more time goes by, the more I appreciate Ann Coulter. She fights relentlessly for the things that she believes in, and she never backs down. If every Republican member of Congress was just like her, we would not be in the giant mess than we are in today. I am so glad that she wants me to win this race, and if you would like to help make that a reality, we could really use your help this month…
At the end of this month is our first big FEC deadline. Conservative organizations around the country will be looking to see how much I raised compared to my opponents, and they will be making decisions on where to allocate resources based on those numbers.
If I don’t raise as much money as my opponents when the next report comes out, it is likely that I won’t get some big checks from conservative organizations that I otherwise could have gotten. So I can’t stress strongly enough how much I need to hear from each one of you. This is do or die time, and we have 21 days for a miracle to happen…
When I say that we need a “miracle”, I am not exaggerating. Even though so many other aspects of the campaign are going tremendously well, fundraising is not nearly at the level that it should be. And of course I take responsibility for that. Fundraising is new to me, and I have a lot to learn. Plus, I was raised to be very self-sufficient and independent, and it is not easy for me to ask for help.
So let me just be very, very honest with you. We desperately need financial help for this campaign. Even though everything else is going so incredibly well, a lack of financial support could absolutely cripple us. Every single dollar is so incredibly valuable at this stage, and I am praying for hundreds of people to contribute to the campaign after seeing this message…
In so many other ways this campaign is taking off spectacularly. But if we don’t get some fuel for our engines, we are going to come crashing back down to the ground. We know what we need to do in order to get our message out to every voter in this district, and if we can get that done we will win.
Since there is on incumbent in this race, it is a golden opportunity to send a true freedom-loving conservative to Congress. People always complain that we “don’t have anyone good to vote for”, but now that good candidates are stepping forward, it is absolutely imperative that we support them…
If candidates such as myself don’t win Republican primaries next spring, the choices will be exceedingly bleak in November 2018. In most cases, people will be stuck choosing between a Democrat and an establishment Republican.
Is that what you want?
If not, now is the time to take action.
If you live in my district, I am asking for your vote, and if you live anywhere in the United States, I am asking for your financial support.
As you can see from what Ann Coulter posted, we are starting to create buzz about this campaign all over the nation.
But I can’t do this alone, and I desperately need your help.
Can you name Donald Trump’s best friend in Congress? I was thinking about this question the other day, and I couldn’t come up with a single name. Since nobody else seems very eager to take on that mantle, I will be more than happy to claim it. If I get elected to Congress, I will call for the witch hunts against Trump and his administration to be immediately shut down, I will publicly defend the president every chance that I get, and I will do all that I can to advance the Make America Great Again agenda. I believe in the values and the principles that Trump campaigned on, and there is a reason why they resonated so strongly with the American people. Trump openly defied the globalists in both major political parties, and even though all of the “experts” said that he didn’t have a prayer of winning, he was able to pull off the biggest miracle in American political history. Now we need to get Trump some friends in Congress, and if you would like to help me become Donald Trump’s best friend in Congress you can contribute to the campaign right here…
If you would like to send a check instead, just make it out to “Michael Snyder For Congress” and send it to the following address…
PO Box 1136
Bonners Ferry, Idaho 83805
Have you ever been around an organization or a business that is growing too fast? That is the biggest problem facing our campaign at the moment. Over the past 10 days we have had some of the most influential people in Idaho politics get behind our campaign. We have created a massive amount of buzz throughout the entire district, we have more social media followers than all of the other candidates combined on every major platform, and we are beating the other candidates in the race to the punch in just about every area that you can possibly imagine.
Just about everything that needs to happen in order for me to win this race is happening. But the problem is that this campaign is becoming so big so quickly that we are outstripping our limited resources. I have been so busy traveling, interviewing and working the phones that I haven’t spent enough time fundraising. As a result, we are running low on “fuel” at the exact time when we have an opportunity to really start soaring.
Our first FEC quarterly deadline is coming up at the end of this month, and we really need your help. The only way we have been able to come so far in such a short period of time is because of the generous donations of hundreds of donors, and now I am hoping that you will help us go to the next level. The donation limit for an individual for each campaign cycle is $2700, and if you think that you may want to become a “max donor” I would love to chat with you. Please feel free to reach out to me at my campaign email address…

All across the country we need to be supporting pro-Trump conservatives for Congress. So many are looking ahead to the November 2018 midterm elections, but the truth is that the real battles will be next spring. If pro-Trump candidates don’t win in the primaries, we won’t even have pro-Trump options to vote for the following November.
In the vast majority of cases, pro-Trump candidates will be attempting to unseat anti-Trump establishment Republican incumbents in the primaries.
But in my case, there is no incumbent.
There is no incumbent in Idaho’s first congressional district because Raul Labrador has decided to run for governor.
So the race is totally wide open, and we have a golden opportunity to fill this seat with a very strong pro-Trump conservative. These sorts of opportunities don’t come along every day, and I can’t do it without you. But if every one of my readers were to donate just $20 today, I could stop fundraising tomorrow because we would have more than enough funding to win.
Since I am running on a pro-Trump, anti-establishment platform, the wealthy donors and the big organizations aren’t going to get behind me. So we are “crowdfunding” our campaign, and it is going to take a grassroots effort.
If we do nothing, we are just going to get more of the same. According to Real Clear Politics, Congress has an average approval rating of just 15.5 percent at the moment. I don’t know about you, but I am more than ready to start “flushing the toilet”. We are trying to recruit pro-Trump people to run for offices all over the nation, and as they step forward it is absolutely imperative that we support them.
This truly is a movement, and if I end up in Washington I plan to quickly become one of the leaders of the “pro-Trump wing” of the Republicans in Congress. My hope is to do all that I can to help pro-Trump candidates win races all over the nation, and as that happens I believe that we can start pointing this nation in a more positive direction.
As you can see from my campaign platform, I truly believe in the Make America Great Again agenda. If you supported Trump, I would like to ask for your support as well. Doors continue to open one after another here in Idaho, and if you all will get us the “fuel” that we need, I have no doubt that we will win this race.
We are stretching every single dollar as far as we possibly can, and we will continue to do so. Thanks to you all, campaign materials are being deployed, events are being set up and our extremely strong conservative message is getting out to people all over the district. But in order to keep moving the ball forward, we need your help to put more “fuel” in the tank. If you would like to donate online, you can do so right here…
Hello from Boise, Idaho! The reason why I have not been posting new articles lately is because I have been on the road. I have been in Boise since Monday, and absolutely amazing things have been happening for the campaign. I spent most of Tuesday and most of Wednesday at the Republican booth at the Western Idaho Fair. I shook a lot of hands and passed out a ton of brochures. Thanks to you guys, we have the best looking and highest quality campaign material of anyone running for any political office in the state of Idaho. And we also have a source that can print brochures for much cheaper than anyone else is getting them. We are stretching every single campaign dollar as far as it will possibly go, and if you would like to contribute to the effort you can do so right here.
On both Thursday and Friday, we had a series of terrific meetings with some of the most politically influential people in the entire state. Thanks to our relentless promotion on social media, we have created an enormous amount of buzz all over the district. Many of these highly influential people were not familiar with my work before, but because of the efforts of our team people everywhere have been talking about this campaign.
On Friday, we did a video to help Sara Walton Brady of Health Freedom Idaho get the word out about what happened when she tried to enroll her five-year-old in kindergarten. If you have not seen the video yet, you can view it right here.
The copy of this video on YouTube that I am sharing has less than a hundred views so far, but the copy that we uploaded to Facebook already has nearly three thousand views.
As a member of Congress, these are the kinds of battles that I am going to be constantly fighting. If you believe in what I am trying to do, I would like to ask for your support.
Our first FEC quarterly deadline is coming up at the end of September, and people all over the state are going to be looking very carefully at how our fundraising is going. If we are doing well when the report comes out, that is going to encourage even more individuals and organizations to donate. Perception plays such a huge role in politics, and that is why your help is so critical right now. If you would like to help us have a fantastic first quarterly report, you can do so by donating right here.
I am the most conservative candidate in this campaign by a wide margin, and everywhere we go we are winning people over with my extremely strong pro-liberty message. If we can effectively get my message to everyone living in this district, I will win.
Raul Labrador holds this seat right now, but he is not running again because he is running for governor instead. So it is absolutely imperative that we fill this seat in Congress with an extremely strong pro-Trump conservative, and I am the most conservative candidate in this race. Those of you that have been following my work for years know my heart, but in order to win we have got to get my message out to those that aren’t familiar with me.
Compared to the rest of the country, it doesn’t take a ton of money to win races up here. But if we aren’t at least on the same playing field as the other candidates, they could simply beat me by dramatically outspending me. Last quarter, before I was in the race, attorney Dave Leroy raised the most money. He had less than 100 donors, but because he had people writing large checks, he was able to raise quite a bit.
This quarter, I have already had far more donors than he did all of last quarter, but because this is a grassroots effort a lot of people have been donating small amounts. So it is going to take a whole lot of smaller donations to keep up with the $1000 and $2000 checks that he has been receiving.
Thankfully I have far more name recognition than Dave Leroy has, and if we are at least on the same playing field when it comes to fundraising he isn’t going to have a chance. I need your help, and if you would like to contribute you can give online on this page.
We don’t need any more politicians. What we need are fighters that are going to fight like mad for the things that we believe in.
If you aren’t aware of where I stand, I would encourage you to check out my issues page and the 16 core principles that I set out in a previous article. If you believe in the same things, I would encourage you to get behind my campaign like so many others all over the country are already doing.
Freedom is never free, and if we don’t stand up for what we believe, the left is going to walk all over us.
Our constitutional rights are being continually eroded, and the monstrously bloated federal government that we have today looks nothing like the extremely limited federal government that our founders originally intended.
The larger government becomes, the more tyrannical it tends to be. Communism, fascism and socialism are all big government ideologies. Yes, we are always going to need some government because otherwise we would have anarchy. But like many others have said, I want a government so small that I can barely see it.
I am definitely enjoying my time in Boise, and I will continue to travel throughout the district to spread the message of liberty. Thank you so much for your support, and I will chat with you again soon.
Do you stand with President Trump? If so, I would like to ask you to support #TeamTrump candidates for Congress all over the nation. I am running on a pro-Trump platform in Idaho’s first congressional district, and so far I have created an enormous amount of buzz all over the state. But in order to win, I have to get my message out to hundreds of thousands of potential voters that are not familiar with my work, and that is going to take a lot of time, effort, energy and resources. It is humbling to be in a position where I am forced to rely on others, and I am learning how to reach out and ask for help. If you would like to contribute to the campaign, you can do so right here. Every single dollar makes a tremendous difference, and no donation is too small.
Fortunately, other #TeamTrump candidates are also starting to gain momentum across the country. Omar Navaro and Paul Nehlen are just two examples. If every Trump voter in the country donated at least one dollar to the campaign of a pro-Trump candidate for Congress today, all of us could have our campaigns completely funded by tomorrow. I recently learned that Americans spend 80 billion dollars a year on lottery tickets. It is so sad that people are literally flushing tens of billions of dollars down the toilet when they could be doing something constructive with it. Would you be willing to donate at least one dollar to my campaign? I personally see every single donation that comes into my campaign, and every single one encourages me so greatly.
Right now, many Democrats are having absolutely no problems raising money. If the Democrats win control of the Senate and the House in 2018, they are going to impeach President Trump, and their donors smell blood in the water.
And an effort may be made to impeach President Trump anyway if the composition of Congress stays about the same that it is right now. Many establishment Republicans would jump at the chance to stab Trump in the back, and that is why it is absolutely imperative that we get Trump a lot of friends in Congress in 2018.
Whoever wins the Republican primary here in Idaho’s first congressional district next May is going to win the general election the following November. There is no incumbent running for this seat, and I have a feeling that my primary opposition may come from a RINO in the state legislature that is rumored to be entering the race shortly. If this particular RINO ends up winning, he will be no friend of Trump.
But if I am elected, I will do whatever I can to stop the investigations into Trump and his family. It is abundantly clear that these investigations are simply witch hunts, and I will fight as hard as I can against the efforts of the Deep State to remove Trump from office.
The fate of the Trump presidency is going to hang in the balance in the mid-term elections, and many of these congressional elections are going to be decided by who raises the most money. If I can get my message out to every voter in this district, I will win, because I am much more conservative than anyone else in the race.
If you would like to help me win this race, there are several ways that you can do that…
Donate – Your donations are literally the fuel that moves our campaign forward. Since this is a completely wide open race with no incumbent, I have a very clear path to victory, but that will only happen if all of you stand with me. You have no idea how blessed I am by each contribution, and if you would like to join the effort you can do so right here.
Join The Email List – The email list on our official campaign website is how we will be keeping everyone informed about the campaign. So if you want to be part of what we are doing, please go to MichaelSnyderForCongress.com and subscribe to the email list.
Blast Campaign Materials Out To Your Email List – Perhaps you may not have much money to donate to the campaign right now, but when you forward articles such as this one out to your email contacts that multiplies the impact that we have. Some of you have hundreds of email contacts, and some of you have thousands, and it would be a tremendous help if you would share what we are trying to do with all of them.
Twitter Hashtags #MAGA And #TeamTrump – Would you be willing to post a message to Twitter each day with the hashtags #MAGA and #TeamTrump? Of course MAGA means “make America great again”, and the #TeamTrump hashtag is being used by pro-Trump campaigns all over the nation.
Sign Locations – If you live in the first congressional district here in Idaho, we are looking for locations on private property to put up signs. Ideally, we are looking for locations along roads that are heavily traveled. If you know of such a location that would be available for us, please go to MichaelSnyderForCongress.com and send me a message.
Facebook – I get a great deal of engagement on my personal Facebook profile, but we are also trying to increase engagement on our official Facebook campaign page. If you would be willing to visit the page regularly and like and share our material that would be an exceedingly great help to us.
Special Promotions – Thanks to those that supported our efforts on HelpMichaelWin.com, we have been able to print up much needed brochures and signs. We are hoping to have another special promotion ready to roll for my next interview on the Alex Jones Show on Tuesday.
Since the campaign launched on July 4th, God has been opening up door after door, and amazing things have been happening. The path to victory is very clear, but I also know that I could never do this alone. No matter how much time, effort and energy I put into this, this campaign will not succeed without the help of hundreds of volunteers and thousands of donors.
If you are wondering if I need your help, the answer is yes. You can donate to the campaign right here, and I would also like to ask you to prayerfully consider getting directly involved in the campaign in other ways as well.
My hope was that this campaign would bring together family, friends and fellow believers to work toward a common goal, and it has been such a thrill to see that actually happen. I want to thank everyone that has stepped forward to help us so far, and I can’t wait to see what happens next…
Have you ever asked yourself this question? Ever since I decided to run for Congress, I have spent quite a bit of time thinking about how divided our nation is. Donald Trump has become the most hated person in America, earlier this year a gunman tried to kill as many Republican members of Congress as possible at a baseball field in Virginia, and the mainstream media is fueling more hatred for conservatives on a daily basis. I think that I was more than a bit naive in thinking that I wouldn’t be caught up in all of this when I decided to run for public office. It has only been about a month, and so far I have been slandered repeatedly, my wife and daughter have been called all sorts of names, and even our faith has been attacked. I have never seen the left so energized in my entire lifetime, but meanwhile those of us that are trying to move the United States in a more conservative direction are facing an uphill battle when it comes to raising funds. If you believe that people like me should be running for Congress, I hope that you will support my campaign financially. Since there is no incumbent running in my district, the race is completely wide open, and if I raise enough money I will win because I have the strongest message by a very wide margin.
So far we have created a tremendous amount of buzz all over the district. On Friday I was down in Coeur d’Alene, and there are some wonderful conservative people down there that are super excited that I am running. Everywhere we go we are finding that voters are resonating with my extremely conservative message, and if I have enough resources to get this message to every voter in the district, there is no way that I should lose this race.
But of course not everybody is pleased by all the buzz I am creating.
If I win this election, I am very rapidly going to become one of the most hated members of Congress in the entire country. And the reason why I will be hated so much is because I will be what the left fears the most – a conservative with a backbone.
In the end, this is not a battle about tax rates, the size of government or how to fix our economy. All of those are very important issues, but at the core this is a fight for the soul of our nation.
Over the past 100 years, we have seen big government leftists take power all over the world. The “progressives” of today are driven by the same philosophies and are using the same tactics as the communists of the USSR, the brownshirts of Nazi Germany (Nazi: National Socialists), and the Maoists of Red China. At this moment the “progressives” dominate most of the political systems on the entire planet, and they would love to fully take control of the United States as well, but there are enough of us that still love liberty and freedom to stand in their way.
In leftist societies, big government rapidly becomes the centerpiece of society. And that is one reason why so many of these big government systems are so godless, because government essentially takes the place of God over time.
Two diametrically opposed worldviews are clashing in our country right now, and eventually one of those worldviews will be vanquished by the other.
For those of us that still believe in life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness, the “progressives” of today are an existential threat. If the left gets enough power, they will criminalize what we believe by making it “hate speech”. Sadly, this is already starting to happen in local communities all over America. And online, a number of social media companies have been making a renewed effort to censor conservative voices in the aftermath of Donald Trump’s surprise election victory last November. They see how powerful the alternative media has become and they want to shut us up.
Unfortunately, I am seeing a lot of apathy among conservatives right now. They seem to think that the battle is over because we got Donald Trump into the White House. What they don’t understand is that the battle is just beginning. We need people to stand up and fight like never before, and this is something that I talk about in my brand new book entitled “Living A Life That Really Matters”. If America does not change direction immediately, there isn’t going to be an America.
And actually that is going to be one of my major themes when I speak at Pastor Benjamin Faircloth’s church in Lavonia, Georgia later in August. The “What’s Next Prophecy Conference” will be held on Saturday, August 19th and Sunday, August 20th, and it will also be available online for those that are not able to make it in person…
If you live anywhere near Lavonia, I hope that you will come and join us. This is going to be one of my very few opportunities to travel out of state in the near future, because I am going to be spending almost all of my time traveling all over Idaho for my campaign.
You know, I have actually been criticized by certain Christians for moving into the world of politics. They seem to believe that “ministry” can only be done in a “church”, and that therefore trying to take my message to a national platform in Washington D.C. must be a “mistake”.
But all I can tell them is that I must do what I feel like God is leading me to do. And thankfully so many others out there have rallied to my cause and have donated to my campaign. So far, the leading fundraiser in this race is an attorney from the Boise area named Dave Leroy, and in just four weeks I have already had far more donors than he did during the entire second quarter. But because he is getting those big $1000 and $2000 checks and I am raising money $10 and $20 at a time, I have a gap to make up.
If you believe in what I am trying to do, I would like to ask for your help. I am the most conservative candidate in this race by a very wide margin, and it is absolutely imperative that we fill this open seat with a very strong conservative that will relentlessly fight for liberty and freedom.
Most people don’t understand that you do not just vote at the ballot box. The truth is that you also vote when you decide who to support financially. So many Americans wouldn’t think twice about spending 20 bucks at a fast food place, but they will never even consider contributing that much toward the fight for the future of our nation.
Every generation of Americans has had to fight for liberty and freedom, and now it is our turn. My family is putting so much on the line in this race, but there is no possible way that we will be successful without your help. If you would like to contribute to this fight, you can do so right here or by using a contribution form on my website. Thank you so much for standing with me, and if we all work together I believe that we will be able to accomplish truly great things…
It is really easy to sit back and complain about the direction of this country, but what America really needs at this hour are men and women that are willing to step into the fight to save our constitutional republic. As I have said before, getting Donald Trump elected was the greatest miracle in U.S. political history, but he should not have to wage this battle alone. Trump has very few friends in Congress at this point, and so it is absolutely critical that we get him some during the 2018 mid-term elections. So I am calling for an army of pro-Trump activists to run for national, state and local offices all over America in 2018. Donald Trump started this revolution, and now it is our job to continue it.
My father was in the U.S. Navy, and so sometimes I like to put things in military terms. When an amphibious invasion is being conducted, it is the troops that hit the beach first that take the most fire. To me, that is a perfect picture of what is happening to Donald Trump right now. He has established a beachhead, and now the rest of us need to rush to shore to back him up.
If we are not willing to try, what is going to happen? Our political system on the national, state and local levels will continue to be dominated by Democrats and “progressive Republicans”, and our once great nation will continue to fall apart all around us.
We need patriotic men and women to challenge every available seat in America in 2018. Some of us will win and others will lose, but at least we will have given the American people a choice.
We are never going to have a true political revolution if we don’t at least try, and this election cycle represents a tremendous opportunity. I really like how Rush Limbaugh made this point during one of his programs…
Do you realize what a nothing burger the Democrat Party is? Do you realize the Democrat Party literally has nothing virtuous, positive, uplifting to run on? In all of this, the Democrat Party dares not ask people, “Hey, take a look at us. We got better ideas. Hey, take a look at us. We can fix this.” None of that. The only thing they’ve got is this insane, invisible, nonexistent, so-called connection between the Russians and our election. They have no ideas. They have no optimism. They have no leaders. They have no vision. They are ripe for being smoked for generations! This is the time to move in politically and wipe them out. …
Don’t misunderstand here, folks. I’m not saying the Democrats don’t pose a threat. I’m not… Look, two things here. The Democrats are in deep trouble, electorally. The Democrats are not running the left; the media is. And the media is clearly not inconsequential. Don’t misunderstand. I’m not saying that what’s happening here is obviously to everyone. I’m saying the Republican Party has a golden opportunity here to continue to hammer the nail into the coffin of the Democrat Party.
Our founders intended for us to have a constitutional republic with a limited central government, but the globalists have turned the federal government into an absolute monster. We need to tame that monster and restore the constitutional republic that our founders originally designed.
The easy route would be to sit back and wait for someone else to do something.
But I have decided not to do that.
Earlier today, I announced on the Alex Jones Show that I am “strongly considering” running for Congress in 2018…
Labrador represents the district in which my wife and I live, and when I heard this news I realized that this represents a truly unique opportunity.
Congressman Labrador has been doing a wonderful job, and if he had run again he would have won by a landslide. But now that he is not running, there is no incumbent and the race is entirely wide open.
If I decide to run, and I am very strongly leaning in that direction, the key to the race will be to win the Republican primary. Hillary Clinton got only 27.5 percent of the vote in Idaho last November, and Labrador won his last election by more than 120,000 votes. So whoever wins the Republican primary will almost certainly win the general election.
Donald Trump has shown us that nothing is impossible in politics. When he first declared his candidacy, liberal pundits literally laughed at him on the air because they thought his candidacy was such a joke. But his bold message struck a chord with conservative voters all over the country, and now he is the president of the United States.
If he can do it, why can’t we?
If I run, I plan to continue the absolutely outstanding work that Congressman Labrador has been doing, and I plan to be a key ally for President Trump in Congress. Right now Trump has very few friends in Congress, and that desperately needs to change.
In recent years, the House has lost some tremendous conservative voices. I plan to continue the legacy of Ron Paul, Michele Bachmann and so many others that stood strong for conservative causes at a time when it was not always popular to do so.
But if I am going to do this, I am going to need lots of assistance. If you have experience with campaigns on a state or local level, or if you just want to help out any way that you can, please feel free to drop me an email or contact me on Facebook. I have never run for office before, and so I have a lot to learn, and I greatly value the advice and counsel of others.
Also, if there are other pro-Trump activists out there that plan on running in 2018, we should definitely connect. If we all work to promote one another, we can create a giant groundswell of momentum which could sweep a whole bunch of pro-Trump activists into political positions all around the country.
