We're suspending the campaign (for now)
It's been an incredible three months. And now we know what to do for the real run.
I always knew (and was reminded often) that unseating an incumbent as a first time political outsider would be a difficult proposition. I was completely unfamiliar with the political campaign process, and what the road to a viable campaign looked like.
That is no longer the case. This campaign has given me exactly what I needed: to know what I don't know.
We'll be back in the political arena soon, but now is the time to begin laying the foundation for a truly viable political campaign. I don't want to use the time of our selfless, civically-engaged volunteers until I know we can win.
Speaking of, I've also been humbled beyond belief by the help of Americans across the country who have discovered this movement by word of mouth, news stories, and social media. There's truly a strong market for sanity in American politics, no matter what the media portrays. This campaign generated thousands of followers, hundreds of thousands of views, and dozens of volunteers across Utah in a few short months without any ad spend. With funding and a more robust campaign team, the next time around will be a completely different scenario.
Thank you to everyone who has supported me with their connections, counsel, and money. Anyone who has donated will receive a full refund as we close out our accounts so that they can put the money toward other worthy causes if they so choose.
As it stands, we have an excellent challenger to unseat Burgess Owens in the form of Jake Hunsaker. He's exactly the kind of principled conservative that's so hard to find in Washington these days, and as of now, he has my endorsement. If you're disappointed that my name won't be on the ballot, his is the next best thing. I invite my Utah followers to help get Jake elected to round out Utah's unique coalition of true conservatives in leadership.
My friends, thank you. Keep fighting fire with friendship, and we'll be seeing each other again soon.
Not Right. Not Left. Forward.
Welcome to the Radical Center.
Utah District 4 is special. It's one of the few districts in the United States where the winner could be Democrat or Republican on any given year. Here, we're sick of partisan politics and headline grabbing. It's time to bring collaborative problem solving back to Washington.
What I stand for:
In 2019 I testified to the U.S. Senate about a new alternative to the Far Left and the Far Right: the Far Middle.
In the Far Middle, Americans work together despite their differences. The Far Middle is where real progress happens.
In recent years, Far Middlers have been drowned out by the political extremes, and as a result, our republic has suffered.
Utah's District 4 is about to lead the movement to fix it.
Q: So how do we bring the Far Middle to Washington?
A: Through collaborative, compassionate conservatism.
Every time we seek a win for our party rather than a win for our nation, we lose decades of progress on crucial issues. I will never introduce legislation in Congress without a Democrat cosponsor. My policies will champion the free market and conservative ideals, while empowering class mobility and equal opportunity for all.
