LLPH is pleased to announce our first Project 21 for the midterm elections. Every midterm or presidential election year, we will announce candidates through Project 21 to help our followers focus on 21 key races with candidates who absolutely deserve our support. We endorse a lot of candidates, but there are some who really stand out to us and are extra strong candidates. Today, we are announcing 9 candidates who will be added to this special project.
KY SEN: Matt Bevin is challenging incumbent Senator and Minority Leader Mitch McConnell. McConnell has been famous for negotiating terrible deals such as the Fiscal Cliff Deal and hides behind his votes while pushing more moderate members to vote in favor of bills that he would like to support, but won’t because he fears losing. Hoping yes, voting no is no longer acceptable. We need a firm and strong conservative to join Senators Rand Paul, Mike Lee, Ted Cruz, and others in fighting for fiscal responsibility and our liberties. Matt Bevin opposes raising the debt ceiling, will fight against bloated budget bills, charge against encroachment of our liberties, and he will be a vocal supporter on the Senate floor for the values we care about. Matt Bevin has been endorsed by Senate Conservatives Fund, Freedomworks, Glenn Beck, Mark Levin, and so many other conservatives. Polls show that if McConnell wins the primary, he will likely lose the general election because people either hate him or like him. Bevin has room to grow and he is not a career politician. Primary: May 20, 2014.
KS SEN: Dr. Milton Wolf is the cousin of President Barack Obama and he is running in the GOP primary to defeat 40+-years incumbent Senator Pat Roberts. Dr. Wolf understands the problems with Obamacare and can articulate them in a strong manner, and he is not afraid to stand up to the Washington Establishment. Senator Roberts is not “bad” when compared to the likes of RINO Senators McCain, Graham, McConnell, Murkowski, and others, but he has no will to fight for America. And Senator Roberts received a 65% at one point from American Conservatives Union and has been moving between the 70s and 80s in other scorecards until recently. Senator Roberts voted FOR Secretary of Health and Human Services Kathleen Sebelius of Kansas who is now running Obamacare and Roberts has repeatedly voted to raise the debt ceiling. Dr. Milton Wolf will be a fresh voice against Obamacare and will fight against the reckless debt ceiling increases and will stand shoulder to shoulder with the likes of Senators Ted Cruz, Mike Lee, Rand Paul, and others. That’s why he has been endorsed by the Senate Conservatives Fund, Tea Party Express, the National Republican Liberty Caucus, the Madison Project, RedState’s Erick Erickson, Mark Levin, and others. We proudly endorsed Dr. Milton Wolf and are honored to name him to Project 21 to help him get more support for his campaign. Primary: August 5, 2014.
MS SEN: State Senator Chris McDaniel has been fighting the hard fights in Jackson, Mississippi, and he is now running in the Republican Primary to defeat 40+-year Senator Thad Cochran, also known as the King of Pork. Senator Thad Cochran is the Ranking Member of the Appropriations Committee and has wielded his gavel in the past 40 years for more debt, more spending, and higher taxes. Senator Cochran, while being from a strong conservative state, prefers to make deals that make things worst for the next generation. On the other hand, Senator McDaniel opposed bloated budgets and appropriations bills in the State Senate, stood up to the establishment on property right issues, and through his law firm, fought Obamacare pro bono (for free!). McDaniel has been endorsed by Club for Growth, Freedomworks, Tea Party Express, ConservativeHQ, RedState’s Erick Erickson, Glenn Beck, Mark Levin, etc. Next time, when Senator Ted Cruz is fighting against Obamacare, a son of Mississippi will be there fighting with him. Primary: June 3, 2014.
NE SEN: Ben Sasse is not a career politician, he is a renewer and a fixer who is now running to help renew America and fix Congress. As the President of Midland College, he helped turn a crumbling institution into a thriving one, and that is exactly what he will do as the next senator from Nebraska. He is running to succeed Senator Mike Johanns (R-NE), and would be a strong successor who would join the likes of Senator Mike Lee (who has endorsed him for the seat), Ted Cruz, Rand Paul, etc. His opponents are establishment types and the lead one is receiving money from Mitch McConnell’s former aides and lobbyists who supported David Dewhurst over Ted Cruz in the 2012 Republican primaries. We need Ben Sasse who will stand up to the establishment, fight Obamacare, fight against the rising debt, and also give more power to the states. That’s why he has been endorsed by Senator Mike Lee, Tom Coburn, Senate Conservatives Fund, Freedomworks, Club for Growth, Mark Levin, RedState’s Erick Erickson, and so many other conservative groups and leaders. Primary: May 13, 2014.
NC SEN: Dr. Greg Brannon is running for the GOP nomination to run against liberal Democrat Senator Kay Hagan this November. Imagine Dr. Brannon, Dr. Wolf along with Senator (Dr.) Rand Paul in the Senate fighting Obamacare. Not only would we have lawyers like Ted Cruz, Mike Lee, possibly Chris McDaniel to explain the lawlessness of Obamacare, but we would have 3 doctors to explain the harmful effects it has on patient-doctor relationships, and then Matt Bevin and Ben Sasse can explain the problems that this law has on businesses and schools. That would be awesome! Dr. Brannon fully supports repealing and fighting Obamacare, he opposes increased spending and endless debt ceiling increases, and will defend our liberties against the IRS, NSA, and protect a true restoration of the 10th Amendment. That is why he has been endorsed by Freedomworks, RedState’s Erick Erickson, Senator Mike Lee (R-UT), Senator Rand Paul (R-KY), Congressman and Liberty Commander Rep. Thomas Massie (R-KY 4), and so many more. Primary: May 6, 2014.
HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES:
AL CD 6: Dr. Chad Mathis is a small business-owner and a physician running to succeed Rep. Spencer Bachus. Conservatives have a great potential to move this seat into the hands of a man who will join our Liberty Team in Congress, and we are confident Dr. Mathis is that man. He practiced conservative principles when he took his free time to go to Texas and campaign for Senator Ted Cruz. Dr. Mathis opposes run away government spending and the encroachments on our liberties. He will stand up to members of both parties and demand a more limited government. And he will fight day and night to repeal Obamacare which he has seen and knows is a failure as a doctor. He has been endorsed by Congressmen (and Drs.) Andy Harris (R-MD 1) and Phil Roe (R-TN 1), Citizens United PVF, Senate Conservatives Fund, Freedomworks, RedState’s Erick Erickson, and so many more conservatives. He has such great potential and needs our help to push him over the finish line. Primary: June 3, 2014.
CA CD 7: Igor Birman knows what it means to lose freedom. An immigrant from the Soviet Union, Igor Birman saw first hand the tyranny that Communist ideals bring to a country and the bright light of opportunity which is America. But those days are dimming as crushing regulations and rising debt become the new norm in America. But Igor has not stayed on the sidelines. He served as a senior aide to the great Liberty Team member Rep. Tom McClintock (R-CA 4). Now, he is seeking his own seat so he can join McClintock and other Liberty team members like Reps. Justin Amash (R-MI 3), Thomas Massie (R-KY 4), Jim Jordan (R-OH 4), Raul Labrador (R-ID 1), Mick Mulvaney (R-SC 5), and Senators Rand Paul (R-KY) and Mike Lee (R-UT), all of who have endorsed him for this seat. Igor Birman will fight for fiscal responsibility and our liberties and will join the likes of those above who are fighting every day for our freedoms. He has been endorsed by Freedomworks, Madison Project, Dr. Ron Paul, and many more. Igor Birman is running in California in a top-two primary system where there are 2 other Republicans with establishment ties and the Democrat incumbent, Rep. Ami Bera. We need a clear contrast and that is why we are supporting Igor Birman. Primary: June 3, 2014.
LA CD 6: 28-year old Paul Dietzel is a small business-owner and a member of the next generation of conservative leaders. With Rep. Bill Cassidy running for Louisiana Senator, Paul’s run gives liberty conservatives an opportunity to move this seat into the hands of the Liberty Team. Paul Dietzel is a true fiscal conservative, supporting a balanced budget and looking for waste in all departments from the Pentagon to the EPA. He will fight against the NSA spying on American citizens and will oppose unconstitutional bills like CISPA/SOPA. He opposes Common Core, will fight to strengthen our borders, is fully pro-life, and will defend the 2nd Amendment. Paul Dietzel will fight for a sane foreign policy, one which keeps America strong but does not send us all across the globe while leaving our own borders crumbling, defending Afghanistan’s borders while leaving our borders open to invasion is not good foreign nor domestic policy. Paul Dietzel has been endorsed by Liberty for All (which helped now-Congressman Thomas Massie a lot), as well as Former Louisiana Congressmen Henson Moore and Bob Livingston, along with Louisiana State Senator Elbert Guillory. We are thrilled and strongly support Paul Dietzel’s campaign so that we can send the next generation of conservative leaders! Primary: November 4, 2014.
WV CD 2: Alex Mooney is a liberty candidate ready to take on Washington. He is running to succeed Rep. Shelley Moore Capito who is running for West Virginia Senator. Again, this is another opportunity to add to our Liberty Team in Congress. He will stand up against President Obama’s War on Coal and fight for an AMERICAN energy so that we do not have to keep buying oil from countries that hate us. Alex Mooney is the only conservative in this race who is committed to cutting spending and stopping the endless debt ceiling increases. He is fully pro-life and pro-liberty unlike his primary opponents who sway back and forth. Alex Mooney has been endorsed by Senate Conservatives Fund, National Republican Liberty Caucus, ConservativeHQ, Gun Owners for America, Madison Project, Dr. Ron Paul, and others. Primary: May 13, 2014.
