Good people, we're closing in on the 2022 elections, time to suit up. I don't think we have ever had a more consequential midterm election.

FYI, I am not part of O'Connell's campaign. I am serving him as I served Mark Meadows--as national security advisor. I want the strongest possible candidate for our Representative in the Washington swamp.  Bruce reminds me a lot of Mark Meadows, and he's coming up to speed fast on national security and defense matters. I am very impressed with him. The man is open-minded, displays integrity, projects sincerity, clearly loves our country, and is purpose-driven. Under a pleasing personality, there is toughness, and the fact that he is a successful businessman and not a career politician can only be good for our country with the coming challenges to our nation.

As voters in these dangerous times, we need to really know who we are sending to Washington. I intend to meet every candidate for District 11 (I think we're back to 11 now?) to take his or her measure--except Madison Cawthorn. I already have his measure...I think we all do. If he's your boy, God bless you, but I'm looking elsewhere.

I am being blocked by Gmail, so kindly pass this message on to others who might not have been able to receive it, and to anyone else you know who might be interested. If you're not in District 11 (whatever)--I know some of you have moved--please pass this on to others who are.


(I am not the Karen in Bruce's email address--that's one of his campaign staff.)
