OKLAHOMA – August 23

OK-02: Josh Brecheen

Defending the Republic PAC is endorsing Josh Brecheen in the Oklahoma District 2 Congressional Run-off election on Tuesday Aug, 2.

Josh Brecheen served 8 years in the Oklahoma State Senate and saw firsthand how Republican establishment leaders groom legislators to ‘moderate’ their conservative positions and become ‘team players’.Josh Brecheen won’t moderate and sellout his voters. Josh is a true America First conservative who will oppose reckless spending and regulations, and follow our Constitution by working to return more power back to the states.

Tell your Family and Friends, This Tuesday, August 2, vote for Josh Brecheen for Congress in Oklahoma’s Second District.

A 4th generation rancher, Brecheen is a committed Christian, husband, father. He grew up learning the value of hard work cleaning horse stalls, breaking colts, and hauling square bales. He served as state president of the Oklahoma FFA Association and graduated from OSU. He was fortunate to serve Sen. Tom Coburn as his Field Representative to Southeastern OK. Josh and his wife Kacie live with our four children on our ranch in Coal County. He self-term-limited in the Oklahoma State Senate, where he stood strong against tax increases, debt, wasteful spending and I led the fight against Common Core in our schools. Like his mentor, Dr. Coburn, he kept his term-limit pledge and prioritized principle over politics. He doesn’t play political games. He confronts them. Winning elections means nothing if we lose our nation. We the People must demand virtue in D.C. again. We can restore our nation but only if we elect leaders who practice self-restraint over selfish gain, and value character over careerism. We need promise keepers not power seekers.

VERMONT – August 9

Senate: Gerald Malloy

I am seeking to serve Vermonters, Vermont, and the United States of America. I am deeply concerned with the direction our Country is going and I have the character, experience, leadership and performance to change the course for a better future. For nearly 5 years I served with the new Defense Coordinating Element, supporting New England Emergency Management operations. I worked extensively with Federal, State, Local agencies and directly supported over 20 PDDs under the Stafford Act, including several in Vermont. I was a lead for the post-Katrina National Level Exercise with 30+ Agencies and a Regional Exercise for Pandemic Response during H1N1. I also supported the Exercise at Harvard that directly benefitted the Marathon response. Since 2011 I have been in Business management and executive positions, with large and small businesses, leading support to a wide range of US Government organizations. My simple formula: engage, listen, develop a value solution; check every detail of the acquisition and proposal. I’ve had success and results in supporting Government agencies in a very competitive environment.

WASHINGTON – August 2

WA-02: Loren Culp

Defending the Republic PAC is asking to Vote for Joe Kent, WA-3rd district, and Loren Culp, WA-4th district on Tuesday, Aug. 2, primary election.

Don’t be fooled by spoiler candidates claiming to have President Trump’s endorsement.

They will only split the America First vote.

Joe Kent, running against Jaime Herrera-Beutler is the ONLY candidate President Trump has endorsed in the 3rd district race.

Loren Culp, running against Dan Newhouse is the ONLY candidate President Trump has endorsed in the 4th district.

Remember, a vote to impeach President Trump was really a vote to support Nancy Pelosi and helped advance her destructive, radical policies.

That’s one reason why we must defeat Herrrera-Beutler and Newhouse. They don’t represent their Washington voters. They represent the Washington D.C. swamp establishment.

Tell your Family and Friends to Vote only for Joe Kent, WA-03, or Loren Culp WA-04 on Tuesday, August 2.

If you want to know what he’ll do in Congress, look at what he did before he ever decided to run for public office. From standing up for our Constitutional Rights to taking on the corrupt establishment Republicans, Loren Culp is running for Congress to put America First in Washington DC–because that’s what he’s always done. Culp will always support and defend the Constitution of the United States of America. He will always defend your God-given rights and freedoms.

WA-03: Joe Kent

Joe Kent was born in a cabin in Sweet Home, Oregon, and grew up in Portland, Oregon. Growing up, he spent much of his formative years in the Cascades and Columbia River Gorge, thanks to Boy Scouts and Explorer Scouts. He has always considered the Pacific Northwest his home and wanted to fight for this nation. When he was eighteen, he enlisted in the Army as an infantryman and earned his way into the Ranger Regiment and then Special Force. In over 20 years of fighting on the battlefields and through his wife’s death, Joe knows what it feels like to be on the receiving end of failed policy. He is volunteering now, just like he did 22 years ago, but this time to earn the vote of the people and to put America first.
