ENDORSEMENT OF THE 26th COMBAT VETERAN FOR CONGRESS TO RUN FOR ARKANSAS’ 2nd CONG DISTRICT IN 2022
The Combat Veterans For Congress PAC is endorsing the 22nd of 142 endorsed Combat Veteran For Congress in 12 years; Colonel Conrad E. Reynolds, USA (Ret)/US Government Intelligence Consultant of Conway, Arkansas is running for Congress in the 2nd Congressional District of Arkansas. Col Reynolds is a Patriot, not a politician, and has served his country proudly in the US Army for 29 years, and then for 12 years as an Intelligence Consultant/Contractor for the US Government. He is a fiscally conservative candidate who supports The Free Enterprise System and will work to rein in the out of control spending by irresponsible Socialist Democrat members of Congress. He will work to put "America First" and restore the economic growth and energy independence achieved under President Donald Trump.
Col Reynolds is running for the seat of four term Congressman French Hill. Cong French continues to praise Liz Cheney for her leadership and he refuses to answer how he voted for the removal of Cheney from her House Republican leadership post. Cong French Hill was one of 35 Republicans in the House of Representatives who voted for the establishment of the January 6th Commission that has resulted in hundreds of peaceful Americans who were touring the capitol being incarcerated in solitary confinement for 11 months, with no bail, in violation of Federal Law. French Hill voted to confirm Biden’s election as President of the United States. Later French Hill issued a statement, that criticized President Trump for using “hot rhetoric, prone to exaggeration and self-aggrandizement.” Additionally, Hill essentially stated that Trump’s assertion that he won in the 2020 election in a landslide was “fiction and folly.”
Col Reynolds will work toward reducing the national debt, and will work to reinvigorate the US economy, unleash the private sector to grow once again, create jobs, and stimulate private sector business investment. He will work to curb irresponsible fiscal practices of the Biden administration, and to finally pass a balanced budget amendment to the United States Constitution. Col Reynolds will work to safeguard military benefits and support increasing the strength of the US Armed Forces. He will support Freedom of Speech and Religion, will support the 2nd Amendment’s Right to Bear Arms, He will work to protect the rights of all Americans, as guaranteed by the US Constitution and he will work to ensure those rights are not violated by the Biden/Harris administration or any other administration.
Col Reynolds will lead the charge to close the wide open southern border, through which over 200,000 Illegal Aliens enter the United States each month from over 160 countries. He will work to fix the broken immigration system once and for all, and work to pass term limits. Pelosi and her Marxist Caucus believes Illegal Aliens should be provided with food stamps, funds to cover their housing, be given the right to vote, and be given free medical care, while 40 thousand American Veterans are sleeping on the streets with no housing, food stamps, or free medical care.
