Gun Owners of America Endorses Lauren Boebert for Congress at Colorado Rally

Published

on

On August 2, 2020, Gun Owners of America (GOA) announced its endorsement of Lauren Boebert for Congress. In the statement to its members, GOA revealed that Senior Vice President Erich Pratt will be heading to Pueblo, Colorado to announce the no compromise organization’s endorsement of Boebert’s bid for higher office.

The event will take place this weekend on September 5, 2020 at the Old Kmart Parking Lot off N. Elizabeth Street in Pueblo. The location can be found here.

“Lauren Boebert may be new to the world of politics, but she’s not new to defending the Second Amendment,” Pratt declared. “I look forward to her standing up to the anti-gun likes of Nancy Pelosi and Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez in the halls of Congress.”

Boebert previously made waves for her confrontation with Robert Francis “Beto” O’Rourke last year, where she stood up for the right to bear arms at a time when he was calling for gun confiscation. By doing so, she became a national sensation and quickly built an image as a Second Amendment champion.

After this encounter with the failed Texas Senate candidate, Boebert decided to run in the Republican primary for Colorado’s 3rd Congressional district against incumbent congressman Scott Tipton. Not only did she run on a strong Second Amendment platform, she also channeled strong immigration patriotism by calling out Tipton for his pro-cheap labor votes.

Generally a taboo issue among Republicans who have traditionally been under the clutches of the Chamber of Commerce, Boebert was able to paint her opponent as a cheap labor stooge and go on to win during her primary.

Boebert is running for Colorado’s 3rd Congressional district. She has continued positioning herself as a pro-gun candidate who will stand against federal gun control. She is one of the few America First candidates running for office in this election cycle and should receive America Firsters’ full support.

Texas Political Establishment Attempts to Derail Shelley Luther’s Campaign

Published

on

The special election for Texas’ Senate District 30 is on pace to be one of the most heated races in the Lone Star State.

At a candidate forum on September 18, 2020, Shelley Luther, the Dallas salon owner who was jailed for opening her business in defiance of Governor Greg Abbott’s shutdown order, confronted outgoing State Senator Pat Fallon.

Fallon vacated his seat and is now backing a successor in State Representative Drew Springer.

“We don’t want somebody who’s going to be at odds with our Republican governor,” Fallon said September 18 at the Grayson County Republican Women’s Club.

Fallon added:

I didn’t support some of the things that he has done about opening up. … So, he’s made some mistakes. He’s our Republican governor, the 80/20 rule … because you’re not going to get any bills passed unless the governor signs them.

“Let me make something clear. I am accountable to my fellow citizens in Senate District 30. Not our Governor,” Luther responded on September 19 on Facebook:

This is exactly what is wrong with Austin. Our politicians are more loyal to Abbott than us, even when they disagree with him.

I will work with Governor Abbott when he is fighting to protect the liberty of Texans, and I will oppose him when he pushes unilateral dictates that shut down our local businesses.

Fallon and Luther had a tense exchange, which was caught on video.

“You want me to go all in on this race?” Fallon questioned Luther. “I have been 5 percent in on this race. You want me to go all in on it, I’m welcome to.”

“This has become a straight-up fight between Abbott and the ‘Kumbaya’ Professional Political Class vs. the grassroots and people who remember what limited government and principles should look like,” opined conservative activist Mike Openshaw.

“Respectfully, being willing to be jailed for fighting over-reaching government shows principle; that counts for something, Patrick,” Openshaw continued.

Luther has recently received endorsements from conservative Collin County Judge Chris Hill and Young Conservatives of Texas. Springer, on the other hand, received an endorsement from the Fort Worth Star-Telegram, which asserted that Luther was going down a “far right” path.

A Republican is expected to carry the senate district, which may still require a runoff if the leading candidate does not get enough votes during the first round of the special election.

Election Day will be on September 29.

Luther is viewed as the truly conservative option and many believe she could help break the political status quo in Austin that has kept conservative legislation from ever being passed.
