From what I hear, Ilhan Omar challenger Lacy Johnson is gaining a lot of support as 2020 approaches.
Johnson admits he is, “not a politican.” He’s a “devoted family man” who has “had a 40-year career as a computer technologist, businessman, and entrepreneur.”
But, that just might get him elected, because Minnesotans are sick of politicians like Ilhan Omar.
Johnson, who says he is “impatient with Omar” decided to run to bring back true American values to Minnesota.
“We need someone in Congress who looks after the interests of our own district, not Ms. Omar who’s more concerned with being a self-promoting, anti-President Trump, national celebrity.”
Check out his newly-released campaign video to see what Johnson has to say about why he is running to out-seat Omar in 2020:
Townhall has more to say on Lacy Johnson's campaign:
In a campaign video that has accumulated thousands of retweets, the husband and grandfather endorses the value of diligence and personal responsibility:
"I believe that I am responsible for providing for and supporting my family, not government or anyone else. I believe that goal-setting, hard work, discipline, making good choices, attitude and just plain old tenacity largely determine our accomplishments in life," he says.
"My vision for this country and families of our district is an environment where we encourage and help every person be the best she or he can be, where individual responsibility and accountability is the expectation. Our future is bright, even brighter with a reduced dependency on government," Lacey adds.
"I believe in the Reagan view that the role of government is to do things for people which they cannot do for themselves, that government does not solve problems, it subsidizes them," he continues. "For evidence, look at Baltimore or any place where socialist Democrats have been in control for years. We need someone in Congress who looks after the interests of our own district, not Ms. Omar who’s more concerned with being a self-promoting, anti-President Trump, national celebrity."
