Hello Fellow Patriot!
Thank you for your support in helping me bring my America First agenda to Washington. This newsletter is the first of many that I will send out to inform supporters of our activities and major issues and events taking place both locally and nationally.
November was a big month, and I want to highlight what we accomplished, as well as the issues we discussed and significant campaign developments. I will then close by mentioning our plans for December.
This month was filled with activities, as our campaign sought to spread my America First message to the residents of the Third District.
On Veterans Day, we marched in a parade to salute the brave men and women who served in our armed forces. I was glad to have taken the time to honor their valor in defense of American freedom.
The same day, Kevin Wall interviewed me on his radio show. We discussed the importance of honoring our veterans and soldiers, as well as the Biden Administration’s decision to give reparation payments to illegal immigrants and inflation.

On November 17th, I took part in a radio interview with Wayne Allyn Root. It was a stimulating conversation as we discussed issues ranging from Susie Lee’s unsuitability for office to election integrity.

Also on November 17th, I conducted a tele-town hall with future constituents in the Third District. We talked about my business background and a number of issues, including illegal immigrant reparations, the opioid/fentanyl crisis, inflation’s impact on Thanksgiving, and abortion. To increase participation, we also polled the audience on many of these topics. It was great to hear people’s opinions on these matters and discuss potential solutions with them.
We were very active in the community throughout the month, and we look forward to attending and hosting more events in December and beyond!
While there are many major issues facing Nevadans and Americans writ large, there are three that are currently top of mind:
Inflation: Inflation is rapidly becoming a great danger to the American economy, as supply chain bottlenecks limit the amount of available goods and government stimulus drives demand beyond what the economy can bear. The result is higher prices on consumer goods like gas and groceries, a reality that is certain to make Thanksgiving dinner and travel much more expensive for all Americans. To make matters worse, Joe Biden signed into law a $1.2 trillion infrastructure bill and is still seeking to pass a $1.75 trillion social welfare bill, both of which will supercharge inflation.
Opioid/Fentanyl Crisis: In mid-November, the Wall Street Journal reported that the number of American deaths from drug overdoses surpassed 100,000 from April 2020 to April 2021, the height of the COVID-19 pandemic. A large reason for the increase in deaths is due to fentanyl, which is used in prescription opioids and is lethal even in small doses. These numbers clearly show that Americans are pessimistic about their life prospects, which is why we must get society back on track ASAP.
Illegal Immigrant Reparations: A few weeks ago, the Wall Street Journal revealed that the Biden Administration is working on a plan with the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) to pay certain illegal immigrant families $450,000 each for incidents in which their children were detained separately in 2018. This decision is a slap in the face to American citizens and legal immigrants who play by the rules. I spoke out against this disgraceful action in my Kevin Wall interview, and I will continue to condemn it.
Major Campaign Developments
November saw two major developments with regard to how the 2022 election will turn out.
The first was the series of elections that took place on November 3rd. Republicans saw significant gains across the country and came close in many areas once thought to be safe Democrat territory. Republican pickups included the Virginia governorship, lieutenant governorship, attorney general’s office, and House of Delegates; seats in the New Jersey Legislature; numerous county offices in New York and Pennsylvania; a majority-Hispanic state house district in Texas; and even the city attorney’s office in Seattle. Voters clearly rejected the Democrats’ radical policies and sought a major course correction. These results therefore bode extremely well for the GOP’s performance next year.
The other major development this month was redistricting. The Nevada State Legislature approved new maps for the state’s congressional districts and sought to protect Susie Lee and Steven Horsford by giving them territory from Dina Titus’ safe seat in the First District. Titus objected but failed to prevent the remaking of her district. As a result, Lee and Horsford’s districts are more Democrat than before, but the lines might not save them if 2022 is a Republican wave year nationwide. In addition, Dina Titus faces her first tough race in years.
My campaign will continue to meet with constituents and local Republican groups throughout the first half of December.
The most noteworthy event will be a tele-town hall on Wednesday, December 15th, at 6:30 pm Pacific time. As in November, I will talk about major issues and take calls from residents of the Third District.
