    1. { Rotondaron}: SOCIALISTS, PROGRESSIVES, COMMUNISTS…..”NOW”….MUSLIMS? What did our forefathers intend for this republic? Certainly not this! bath House Barry, has all but ruined, & destroyed this republic…{ remember, he promised to do that, & Libretards, allowed it to happen!}….they would continue to destroy this nation, for personal gain, & insanity!

  1. They especially like local and school board elections because so many ignore them. No competition and little overview.

  2. 1 out of all is a Rep and he in in NC. Probably a plant to see what’s up. We need to watch out for who we put in offices of any power at all. None of them belong in our government!!

  3. Wake up America! They plan to take over this country and they can only do that if we vote them into office. Put a stop to this! They are not our friends!

  4. Good work Deplorable Kel. In Texas in my 24th District I have the honor of supporting Beth van Duyne since useless Marchant is retiring (his pension must have kicked in). She is the ex-mayor of Irving, Texas and served President Trump in HUD under Ben Carson. She made the papers as the mayor of Irving and essentially told “clock boy” and his family to STFU so they left town. She is a rock solid Conservative! Dan Crenshaw is in her corner. Check her out at I’m as Deplorable as they come!

  5. Both speak out and Pray for our America! Do not let racist and other false criticisms stop you. Be Strong in the Lord- ALL OF US!!! 🙏☝️🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸

    1. screw you MC. Too often the ones who have already been voted in are anti American ,hate this country and do nothing to improve this country . Not willing to try a few more.

  6. I would advise you to remove people like Dalia Al-Aqidi from the list – she is a very good person and is the only one that stands a chance against Ilhan Omar

    1. Just bc she is Muslim doesn’t mean anything. She could be a Muslim mother Theresa. You should really hmmm do some research since you claim to be a Journalist.

  7. NOTICE: Virtually all are Democrats, kinda showed what’s going on, right ? Vote AMERICA.
    Who’s doing all the killing in the world ? Wise up AMERICA!

  8. Wake up Democrats; that party is not what it used to be; Muslims are allowed to lie in order to gain power; when they make the laws, you will not be happy; they are nice people to start with, but will stick to their agenda of killing all the rest of us when they are the ones in power. please get yourself informed; the Republican agenda is not trying to harm.
