COL. ROB MANESS (ret) FOR U.S. SENATE FROM LOUISIANA
Many of us have encouraged the election of more conservative warriors
to join the fight in the United States Senate this election cycle. In
the Louisiana Senate race we have the opportunity
to send a true conservative and a real warrior to join that fight. So,
today I am lending my support to retired Col. Rob Maness for U.S.
Col. Maness fought for 32 years in uniform upholding
his pledge to support and defend our Constitution, and he is ready now
to continue that service in the U.S. Senate. A decorated combat veteran,
Rob fought to protect our freedoms and liberties and was awarded the
Air Medal and Bronze Star for meritorious service in a combat zone. On
that fateful day in September 2001, Rob was stationed in the Pentagon
when the terrorists attacked. Rob rushed from his office to the crash
site and quickly jumped on one of the first teams entering the building
in an attempt to save their colleagues. You can hear more of Rob’s
inspiring story from that day here: http://youtu.be/fohQig3Wbzk
Rob is a true conservative – opposing amnesty, pledging to protect our
Second Amendment rights, and promising to defund Obamacare. As the
grandfather of a now healthy 2-year-old baby grandson born at just 28
weeks and 2 lbs., 5 oz., he knows first hand the miracle of life and
promises to protect it.
Rob is the admitted underdog in this
race. Having spent his career in uniform, he does not have deep pockets
or lobbyist connections to fund his campaign. To me, it’s a blessing,
not a curse that he’s not held office before. After all, our founders
weren’t politicians – many of them in fact were military leaders. Maybe
it’s time we got back to those roots!
Liberal Senator Mary Landrieu who still to this day says she would vote
for Obamacare again – this, despite the fact that an estimated 80,000
Louisianans will see their current health plans cancelled despite
promises from President Obama and Senator Landrieu that this would not
The GOP establishment has turned to a moderate
Congressman who opposed President Reagan in the past and was actually a
supporter of Mary Landrieu until recent years. He voted to raise the
debt ceiling, was one of 19 Republicans to vote for President Obama’s
hate crimes legislation, campaigned in support of the government bailout
(but now opposes it), voted for Obamacare Medicare savings (but now
opposes them). Come on, GOP, is this the best we can do? I say no.
Let’s come together and unite behind conservative warrior Col. Rob
Maness – a proven fighter for freedom.
Louisiana, Col. Rob
Maness fought for us for 32 years. Let’s fight for him these next six
months and let him continue to support and defend our Constitution in
the U.S. Senate.
