Combat Veterans For Congress-----Embedded Integrity 

The Combat Veterans For Congress PAC endorsed LTC William B. Conrad, USMA '80, USA (Ret) (Green Beret) as the 154th Combat Veteran For Congress in 14 years; Bill announced in Las Vegas that he is running for the US Senate in Nevada on July 4, 2023.  LTC Conrad resides in Reno, NV and served for 31 years in the US Army and the US Army National Guard as an infantryman, Green Beret, Helo Pilot, Civil Engineer, and Civil Affairs Officer.  Following 9/11, he was reactivated as a Lt Col helicopter pilot in the US Air Force Reserve then in the US Army Reserve in Civil Affairs.  LTC Conrad is a “Solid Conservative Republican” who won two city council elections and “voted for limited government and no tax increases.”  He will work to reduce the national debt and rein in the out-of-control deficit spending by irresponsible Socialist Democrat Senators.  He will protect and defend the US Constitution, support Freedom of Religion, Freedom of Speech, and the Right to Bear Arms guaranteed to every American Citizen.  LTC Conrad is an avid supporter of Law Enforcement and opposes the effort by Marxists Domestic Enemies who have been defunding police forces.


LTC Conrad will defend traditional Family Values, the right of School Choice for parents who oppose the encouragement of Transgender policies in public schools and will support the right of Americans and religions to support Pro-Life policies in the Republic.  He will provide “true” representation for the average American voter in Nevada and those throughout the Republic.  He will vote to strengthen the US Armed Forces; he understands issues facing US Military personnel and is strongly motivated to ensure that they are cared for both while serving their country on active duty, serving as reservists, and will continue strong support for Veterans in their retirement.  He strongly supports The Free Enterprise System and considers the Socialist Democrat Party’s agenda a threat to the founding principles of the Republic.  LTC Conrad will support securing the wide-open southern border, to prevent the entry of drugs, MS-13 gang members, terrorists, human traffickers, Communist Chinese military personnel, Radical Islamic Hamas, Hezbollah, Iranian Terrorists, and convicted criminals.  He opposes the entry of over 350,000 Illegal Aliens each month from over 180 countries who are entering the United States without being screened out, or removed for transmitting contagious diseases into the US, and are not being injected to prevent the spread of the Wuhan or China Virus. 


LTC Conrad is running against far-left Socialist Democrat, first-term Senator Jacky Rosen, whose voting record informs all the Independents, Conservatives, Libertarians, Republicans, and Patriotic Democrats in Nevada the need to know about Rosen’s radical Anti-American political philosophy and her voting record over the last 6 years.  Rosen has served as a rubber stamp for the deeply unpopular Joe Biden, voting for his agenda more than 92% of the time.  Rosen voted against the Parent’s Bill of Rights which requires schools to publish their curriculum and allow parents to have input into school policies.  Rosen voted against the Secure the Border Act to fund more Border Patrol Agents, to complete construction of the Border Wall to close the wide-open southern border and refused to impose harsh penalties for drug cartels.  Rosen refused to meet with Nevadan Law Enforcement Officials on closing the wide-open southern border, and left Nevadans to fend for themselves in dealing with thousands of Illegal Aliens flooding into Nevada each week. 


Rosen voted against the Protection of Women and Girl Sports Act which prohibits schools that receive federal dollars from allowing men to compete with girls and women in sports.  Rosen voted against the Born-Alive, Abortion Survivors Protection Act which would protect babies born alive by mandating that doctors provide care for survivors of abortion.  Rosen voted against the Repeal of Pistol Brace Ban which repeals ATF’s unconstitutional pistol brace ban which violates the 2nd Amendment.  Rosen voted against the Family and Small Business Taxpayer Protection Act that repeals the majority of the Inflation Reduction Act, especially the funding of 87,000 new armed IRS Agents (instead Socialist Democrats should have funded 87,000 new Border Patrol Agents to secure the wide-open southern border).  Rosen voted against the Limit Save Grow Act that puts The Lower Energy Cost Act into effect whose aim was to put a stop to the war on American Energy and allows America to become Energy Independent which would lower the cost of energy for families who are struggling.
