Georgia Sixth District congressional candidate Bruce LeVell is gunning to help President Donald Trump and Steve Bannon by winning his House seat on Tuesday. LeVell is one of eighteen candidates on the ballot to replace Republican Tom Price, who joined the Trump administration. It is unlikely that any one candidate will win a majority of the vote, so the top two vote-getters will make it into a runoff. Anti-Trump Democratic fundraising machine Jon Ossoff, a 30-year old media darling, is leading the polls.
“If there was another candidate who could help the president, I might not have gotten in,” LeVell tells Big League Politics on the eve of the historic vote. “But there’s not.”
LeVell, a jewelry business owner and head of the National Diversity Coalition for Trump, said that he’s in the race to help Trump pass his proposed trillion-dollar infrastructure bill and to help the president out on tax reform, too. He recently visited the White House to meet with Trump and Bannon.
“I was at the White House last week. The president said, You’re a winner no matter what. It’s interesting the way he said that.”
“Steve is cool as ice,” LeVell says of Bannon. “I hear all this stuff, ‘Steve is being pushed out.’ That’s garbage. Pure garbage. Steve is the man. I remember when he went up against that anti-Semitic stuff. I’m like, that’s my buddy, man. Don’t you dare do that. His office [at the White House] has a lot of workers, busy bees. It felt like good camaraderie. The president was still himself. I talked to Spicer. He’s gotten the toughest job on the planet.”
“I’m going to help Steve no matter what. I mean that. Unconditionally,” LeVell said.
As for the political establishment propped up by special interest money?
“I hope to burn it down.”
“The National Diversity Coalition for Trump, we’re still up and running. We’re still growing. We are the life support for the GOP. Without us, the GOP will not survive and sustain itself, period. If you don’t have more people that look like me, you’re not going to survive as a party. Minority turnout has been dismal. Trump saved it,” said LeVell, who was a black surrogate for Trump before that was cool.
LeVell said that he doesn’t trust the polls in his race.
“After President Trump and from here on out, this is not a traditional playbook. During the election, the general, with Hillary and President Trump, I kept saying over and over and over you can’t gauge this race on traditional polling. My signs are coming up missing. I spent more money replacing signs…this is what happens to Trump supporters. We are still a silent majority.”
“I raised seventy something thousand something dollars, and that money is all pure. I’m fourth out of eleven Republicans in fundraising…Bob Grey puts a half million in it, one guy put in two million dollars of their money. Why would you put in that money to buy a congressional seat? John Ossoff said at a forum that one of his big issues is campaign reform, and I turned to him and said, then you need to give back the special interest money.”
“I think President Trump has set a bar as to the down-balloting of State House seats, and not get in bed with these people, it is so dangerous. The tax cut is going to be the most barroom brawl, brass-knuckle fight. The tax cut proposal is going to be a bloodbath. Because there’s too much tied to the umbilical cord, with the special interests and congressmen and senators,” LeVell said. “Democrats AND Republicans. They’re both married to this poison that has poisoned our Republic.”
LeVell fought for Trump as a national delegate all the way through, even when other Republicans sat on the sidelines hoping for a Hillary Clinton win.
“A majority of the Republicans — except for Amy Kremer — were not with the president, and I even had to pull teeth when Trump was the nominee, especially when I was a national delegate. Finally, we’ve got our nominee. But a lot of our fellow Republicans, a lot of our constitutional officers sat on their hands between the convention and November 8, wouldn’t tweet, wouldn’t do anything. The president needs somebody to be a champion, somebody to help him.”
“Transportation is kind of my wheelhouse, especially with Atlanta having the most crowded corridor. I could help the president with his trillion-dollar infrastructure bill. I could be a real heavy lift for the Sixth, and of course for Transportation.”
“Of course” I think I’m going to win, LeVell said. “I don’t get in to lose.”
Democrat Congressmen Introduce Term Limits Legislation for SCOTUS Justices As Trump Prepares Nominee
Three Democrat members of Congress are introducing legislation to institute term limits for Supreme Court justices, as President Trump prepares to nominate his third candidate for the court following the death of progressive liberal Ruth Bader Ginsburg.
Democrats Joe Kennedy, Ro Khanna, and Don Beyer are proposing legislation that would limit SCOTUS justice to a maximum term of eighteen years on the court.
Lifetime appointments to the highest court in our land undermine our democratic process and erode progress in our nation.
We must enact 18 year term limits on our Supreme Court justices to continue our march towards a more perfect union. https://t.co/9fCyggP686

Khanna has proposed an idea that would allow Presidents to appoint two judges in each term. “Senior” members of the court would be required to basically retired for every new member of the court.
When I first ran for Congress in 2014, I proposed limiting terms of Supreme Court Justice to 18-appointments.
Given the recent, dramatic politicization of the Court, it's time for real reform.
— Rep. Don Beyer (@RepDonBeyer) September 25, 2020
It’s pretty funny the Democrats are uniting behind these proposals the moment they appear primed to lose control of the Supreme Court for a generation. They weren’t complaining when Obama was trying to replace Antonin Scalia with progressive Merrick Garland, even going so far as claiming that the stealth liberal was entitled to the seat. Reports emerging Friday suggest that President Donald Trump intends to nominate Amy Coney Barrett, a mostly conservative judge with a pro-life and immigration hawk judicial record.
The judicial branch of government is arguably the most flawed element of American governance, and it’s highly questionable how institutions such as the Supreme Court are able to appoint themselves a nearly unlimited amount of political power.
A better reform proposals would be to institute term limits for justices that only go into effect after the current members of the court vacate their seats. Anything else is simply a political power grab.
