Next year Republican voters will decide the political futures of 13 GOP members of Congress who voted in favor of the bloated infrastructure bill that reportedly has very little money for infrastructure but plenty of cash for Democrat agenda items that the vast majority of Americans do not want.
One of the 13 was Ohio Congressman Anthony Gonzalez, who had already announced he would not seek re-election following his vote in favor of President Donald Trump's second impeachment.
"I'm greatly disappointed in Anthony Gonzalez, because regardless of his ill-advised voting for Trump to be impeached after January 6th and all that, he comes from a conservative family," comments Tom Zawistowski, president of the We the People Convention. "And for him to vote for a bill that is literally going to destroy American families, I just couldn't believe it."
But Zawistowski is pleased that a true conservative is running to take Gonzalez's place.
"The guy's name is Max Miller, and he served with President Trump in the Oval Office," the tea party activist details. "He's a younger guy. He's in his early 30s, but he's as solid as we're going to get. He's going to be another Matt Gaetz. He's going to be someone who's just totally uncompromising on his position. So everyone should feel good that at least in Ohio we're going to get another congressman at the caliber level of Jim Jordan."
Miller has received the official endorsement of Donald Trump.
According to an ABC News/Washington Post poll published Sunday, if midterm elections were held now, 51% of all registered voters say they would vote for a Republican in their congressional district, as opposed to 41% who said they would go with a Democrat. That figure reportedly represents the largest lead for the GOP in the 110 polls conducted by the two news organizations since 1981 and only the second time since 1981 that Republicans have held a statistical advantage in that category.
