Republican Andy Ogles Has a Proven Conservative Track Record and deserves support.

Andy Ogles
by Rod Williams, Oct. 14, 2020- I am supporting Andy Ogles for the 5th Congressional District.  I am not in his district so can't vote for him, but I just sent a modest donation to his campaign. Supporting Republicans is nothing new; I always support Republicans. I am a lifelong conservative activist and the Republican Party best reflects my values and position on issues. My political allegiance has never been in doubt. 

This year, however, I have been more cautious about whom I support. On any checklist of issues, I agree with Republicans more than Democrats on all issues except one. I support the Constitutional peaceful transfer of power and oppose coup attempts. For me, this is the most important issue in this election. Despite no proof that the 2020 election was stolen, many Republican candidates continue to claim it was and refuse to condemn the attempted coup.  I cannot support these candidates. 

Some states are on the verge of putting in office people who supported the fake electors ploy or who are affiliated with militant groups that participated in the January 6th violent attempt to stop the certification of election results. I have contributed to the campaign of the Democrat opponent of some of these Republicans.  For the first time ever, I think this election cycle, I probably sent more money to Democrat candidates than Republican candidates. 

I am late deciding to support Ogles. I did not know where he stood on the issue that is most important to me. I have followed the campaign closely, however, and I have not heard Andy Ogles defend the Trump coup attempt or deny that Biden legitimately won the 2020 election. Ogles has been silent on this issue as far as I know.  I wish he would openly condemn the coup attempt, but I will accept silence.

Andy Ogles has a proven conservative record and I support his candidacy.  The following article profiles Andy Ogles and examines his record.

Prospective Incoming Republican Andy Ogles Has a Proven Conservative Track Record

by Adam Radman, Townhall, Oct 08, 2022- Election Day is a month away and most pundits expect Republicans to take back the House and possibly the Senate. A Morning Consult poll reveals that the electorate currently trusts Republicans more to handle the economy.

Who could have guessed record-high inflation and 87,000 new IRS agents are not what voters want from their elected officials while the country recovers from a pandemic? While one shouldn’t count their chickens before they hatch, it’s worth taking an early look at some of the new faces and personalities likely to prevail in November and arrive on Capitol Hill come January.

An examination of the prospective incoming class of new Republicans in Congress shows the GOP House caucus is poised to get some valuable new additions. 

Take Andy Ogles, the Republican nominee in Tennessee's fifth congressional district. Ogles, who was nicknamed Tennessee’s most conservative mayor, won a fiercely competitive GOP primary in Tennessee's Fifth congressional district, which included former House Speaker Beth Harwell and Retired National Guard Brig. Gen. Kurt Winstead.

... Ogles can tout the fact that he played a key role in improving Tennessee’s tax climate, ... On the campaign trail, Ogles focuses on issues like government accountability, transparency, sanctity of life, and the Second Amendment. He's concerned with government overspending and government reform. Ogles signed the Taxpayer Protection Pledge in May during the Republican primary, committing to voters in writing to oppose and vote against all income tax hikes while in Congress. ... Ogles is expected to become a conservative leader in Congress in short order. ...  Ogles has a proven track record of accomplishment. (read it all)
