Campaign Updates

May 17, 2022 | Uncategorized

Hello everyone! I’m back from state convention and what a ride that was. Scott Jensen was endorsed as the choice for GOP governor candidate after nine rounds of voting. This was my first state convention and I learned so much. My belief that the system of politics is murky and shady was fully fortified as well.

Quick update on my campaign: It looks as though the HRCC (House Republican Campaign Committee) is going to try and disrupt my campaign by putting up a primary candidate against me. Though I won the endorsement, overwhelmingly, with 82% of the vote, they are not going to cooperate. How sad it is when your own party goes against you. That tells me a lot. The candidate that got 18% of the vote at convention is likely going to file and run against me since she was invited to HRCC campaign training and I was not. I wasn’t even alerted that there was such training. I believe they do not want me as a house representative because they think I won’t be a “team player”. Well, I am a team player. I play for team “we the people”. I play for team “republican platform”. I will never bow to leadership. I will always hold my conservative values close and will abide by them. Those who endorsed me, endorsed me on that message…”stay true to us, not ‘them’ “.

Quick joke: What do politicians and diapers have in common? Well, they both need to be changed often and for the same reason. Another: If you ask a politician to tell the truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth, what will you get? You’ll get three different answers. The politician jokes are plenty and it is so very sad. We joke about those that are supposed to lead us into the future. How about we get rid of the career politicians and elect some regular people so we can put some integrity back in politics? Electing me will be no joke. You will get 100% honesty and transparency. I will tell it like it is and will call out anyone, on either side of the aisle, for any wrong doing or for playing “politics”. (Note, second definition of politician is “one who outmaneuvers”.)

I plan to fight tooth and nail to get the win in August and then move on to a win in November. If we don’t prevail, it will not be for lack of hard work.

To say it bluntly, I don’t trust politics, nor do I trust politicians. Enough of this compromise which has brought us to this tyrannical place in history. We need to hold the line. The democrats have pulled their platform to the extreme left and they pulled the GOP with them. Compromise, compromise, compromise. NO!

We will win the middle by messaging on how we will lower taxes to help combat inflation. We’ll win their hearts talking about fixing the educational system and giving parents more voice and choice in schools. We will hammer home the message that MN being a welfare destination state is bad for EVERYONE. People stuck on that island of dependence of government handouts need a hand up, not a hand out. We’ll message on health, rather than making deals with pharma. How about more small farms and less big pharma? How about we tell the truth about how the Standard American Diet (SAD) is poisoning us? We’ll also talk about term limits to get rid of “career politicians”.

Thanks to all of you who have given me such wonderful support!

For Freedom,

Mark
