2018 Midterms: Final Endorsements
The 2018 midterm elections are approaching within less than a month. I, Marian (D-GA), have announced my final endorsements of only 40 nominees for the federal and statewide positions in the general elections this November. I strongly urge all American citizens to vote for the best-qualified candidates in their respective states. Please don’t get me wrong. My endorsements are strictly nonpartisan as I put the American values first over my political party. Regardless of my political views, I am endorsing a several challengers against the incumbents for various reasons such as term limits, incumbent’s disgraceful corruptions, and Senate Republican Caucus’ lacks of electable women with integrity and decency.
Arizona: Martha McSally
California: Kevin de León
Florida: Rick Scott
Indiana: Joe Donnelly (inc.)
Minnesota (SP): Karin Housley
Mississippi (SP): Cindy Hyde-Smith (inc.)
Nebraska: Deb Fischer (inc.)
Nevada: Dean Heller (inc.)
New Jersey: Bob Hugin
North Dakota: Heidi Heitkamp (inc.)
Tennessee: Marsha Blackburn
Texas: Beto O’Rourke
Virginia: Tim Kaine (inc.)
West Virginia: Joe Manchin (inc.)
Wisconsin: Leah Vukmir
The Senate Republican Caucus currently has only 6 women, including one interim appointee, comparing to the 17 Democratic women in the U.S. Senate. Since the Democratic Party has numerous electable women, the Republican Party still has a long way to make changes into equality at the federal level. That is why I’ve been endorsing the Republican nominees with strong integrity and decency in Arizona, Nebraska, Tennessee and Wisconsin and two special elections in Minnesota and Mississippi. In Wisconsin’s race, I strongly oppose incumbent ultra-partisan liberal socialist Tammy Baldwin, who supports the disastrous single-payer healthcare system legislation. Tammy doesn’t represent the people of Wisconsin as well. In Minnesota’s special election race, I strongly denounce interim Senator Tina Smith for lacks of her condemnation of Democratic attorney general nominee and U.S. Congressman Keith Ellison, who is accused of the domestic violence and sexual abuse allegations by his former girlfriend. I was so embarrassed to witness that Tina didn’t care about Keith’s ex-girlfriend when she sided with the accusers of the sexual allegations against now-Justice Brett Kavanaugh during the U.S. Supreme Court nomination process period. Obviously, Tina Smith is a horrible Senator who doesn’t represent the people of Minnesota at all! SHAME on Tina and Tammy!!!!! In Tennessee’s race, 75-year-old former Governor Phil Bredesen is disgracefully a sexist towards the women during his gubernatorial tenure and is NO LONGER fit for any public office in the future. Tennessee deserves a younger Senator with true integrity and decency to represent them for next 6 years!
I am endorsing the challenging nominees against the aging incumbent Senators in California and Florida. Both incumbent Senators have been serving more than three six-year terms and are older than 75 years old. Time for the aging incumbents to RETIRE! Most notably, I endorse moderate Republican Governor Rick Scott in Florida’s U.S. Senate race, citing his strong support of the term limits for the entire U.S. Congress members. Both states deserve the fresh bloods of the younger U.S. Senators to represent my two favorite coastal states for next 6 years.
As a centrist Democrat, I only endorse the conservative and moderate Democratic politicians: first-term incumbent Senators Joe Manchin (WV), Tim Kaine (VA), Heidi Heitkamp (ND) and Joe Donnelly (IN); and Congressman Beto O’Rourke (TX) challenging against incumbent right-wing Republican Senator Ted Cruz. Beto and I are among the few Democrats who support the term limits for the entire U.S. Congress. Within the competitive races, I am appalled in disgust that Senators Manchin, Heitkamp, Donnelly and Jon Tester (MT) and Congressman O’Rourke are snubbed from the list of former U.S. President Barack Obama’s endorsements in the midterm elections. What a JOKE! Former Clinton cabinet-level official Mike Espy (MS special election) and former Governor Phil Bredesen (TN) are snubbed from Obama’s endorsements list as well. Had Martha McSally not won the Republican nomination, I would endorse Kyrsten Sinema in Arizona’s open seat race as well despite my serious concerns about Kyrsten’s strong connections with disgraceful and satanic-socialist Democrats Kirsten Gillibrand, Kamala Harris, Cory Booker and Elizabeth Warren.
Dean Heller has been tirelessly working so hard for his constituents, especially veterans. The moderate Republican Senator is also endorsed by fellow moderate and popular Governor Brian Sandoval, who is term-limited this year. I despise freshman U.S. Congresswoman Jacky Rosen very much because the ultra-partisan liberal socialist reminds me of a heartless wealthy Hollywood elite. She recklessly sells out veterans by fundraising money on her campaign with anti-American actress Jane Fonda. It is clear that Jacky DOESN’T represent the people of Nevada and is totally UNFIT in any public office, period! Unlike Jacky, Dean has true integrity and decency with strong bipartisanship and deserves his re-election for his second six-year term!
In New Jersey’s U.S. Senate race, I am endorsing moderate Republican businessman Bob Hugin over incumbent Democratic Senator Bob Menendez because Senator Menendez is totally disgraceful with his embarrassing corruption of the ethical violations. New Jersey deserves a new U.S. Senator with its integrity and decency. Senator Menendez is NO LONGER fit for any public office, period!
U.S. House of Representatives
Orange County, California
* CA-39: Young Kim
* CA-45: Mimi Walters (inc.)
* CA-49: Diane Harkey
* CA-50: Duncan Hunter (inc.)
Orange County, California used to be a traditional stronghold of the Republican Party for many decades until around 2010s. While I grew up in Orange County, the crime and poverty rates were very low. In 2016, Hillary Clinton became the first Democratic presidential nominee to win this county in 80 years. I suspect that Orange County appears leaning towards the Democratic Party in the last few years. When I watched a several videos, I was so saddened and embarrassed in disgust to see the homeless encampments everywhere in Southern California unlike the past times. I firmly refuse to support the liberal socialist Democrats in all races. For those reasons, I am endorsing the Republican candidates in four Orange County districts. Of course, I am aware of the campaign fraud allegations against Duncan Hunter and his wife; however, I rather endorse moderate/conservative Congressman Hunter against his opponent, a 29-year-old evil-terrorist and far-left liberal socialist Democrat. My hometown, Orange County, DOESN’T deserve any terrorist-like or liberal socialist candidate to represent them. NO Thanks!
* WI-01: Bryan Steil
Outside my hometown state of California and current state of Georgia, this race is one of the RARE U.S. House races that I endorse the best-qualified candidate, citing a high-profile candidate’s embarrassing disgrace with criminal background. U.S. House Speaker Paul Ryan is retiring by the end of this year after two decades of serving Wisconsin’s First Congressional District. Republican nominee Bryan Steil, University of Wisconsin Board of Regents member, is running against criminal felon and Democratic nominee Randy Bryce in this race for the open seat. Wisconsin’s first congressional district deserves someone who must have a true integrity and decency with NO criminal records. Randy Bryce is clearly UNFIT for any public office because he has been arrested nine times including for public protests (2011, 2018), driving under the influence (1998), marijuana possession (1991), and under a warrant after failing to appear in court (1998, 2000). I am appalled in disgust that former President Obama has endorsed this sickest criminal felon in this race. What a JOKE! Steil has been endorsed by all six county sheriffs in this district. It is clear that Bryan Steil is the best-qualified candidate to represent this district as Speaker Ryan’s successor. PERIOD!
Governors with or without running mates
Arizona: Doug Ducey
California: John H. Cox
Florida: Ron DeSantis with Jeanette Núñez
Georgia: Brian Kemp (Gov) and Geoff Duncan (Lt Gov)
Maryland: Larry Hogan with Boyd Rutherford (both inc.)
Massachusetts: Charlie Baker with Karyn Polito (both inc.)
New Mexico: Steve Pearce with Michelle Holmes
Wisconsin: Scott Walker with Rebecca Kleefisch (both inc.)
In eight states including my current state of Georgia, I am extremely disappointed that former President Obama has endorsed the horrible Democratic gubernatorial nominees whom I strongly oppose. Six of those nominees are liberal socialists who support the disastrous issues: crime, poverty and corruption skyrocketing; sex and human trafficking allowed; putting illegal immigrants and criminal terrorists first over the American citizens; evil communism like Venezuela, Cuba, North Korea and Syria; open borders for illegal immigrants turning into criminal terrorists; tax hikes on the hard-working families; plans to implement the disastrous single-payer healthcare system; and allowing non-citizens to register for voting. In New Mexico’s race, U.S. Congresswoman Michelle Lujan Grisham is UNFIT for Governor or any other public office because of her well-known hyper-partisanship, immaturity and disgraceful corruption. A number of Democrats, including former Governor Jerry Apodaca, have endorsed her opponent, moderate Republican U.S. Congressman Steve Pearce, based on his strong bipartisanship with many issues. In Wisconsin’s race, I strongly denounce Democratic nominee Tony Evers for his negligences of many complaints from the parents and legal guardians of the students concerning the disgraceful teachers’ inappropriate behaviors (i.e. watching pornography in classroom or office) during the school days. Evers is very insane that he always sides with the disgraceful teachers. How embarrassing! That is why I’m endorsing incumbent Governor Scott Walker as the best-qualified candidate with true integrity and decency. Evers is UNFIT in any public office, period!
Most notably, Charlie Baker (MA) and Larry Hogan (MD) are among the most popular governors in the deep-blue states and ones of the few Republican politicians with strongest bipartisanships. I proudly applaud Governor Hogan and his running mate, Boyd Rutherford, for their strongest support of the Deaf rights. Had I lived in either state, I’d definitely vote for the incumbent moderate Republican governor over the horrible left-wing socialist and ultra-partisan candidate.
Secretary of State
Georgia: John Barrow
I am extremely disappointed that Democratic nominee and former U.S. Congressman John Barrow, a centrist Democrat like Senators Manchin and Donnelly, is snubbed from former President Obama’s endorsements list. What a JOKE! I plan to vote for John to succeed retiring incumbent Brian Kemp, who is running in my current state’s gubernatorial race as the Republican nominee.
Arizona: Mark Brnovich (inc.)
California: Steven Bailey
Florida: Ashley Moody
Georgia: Chris Carr (inc.)
Illinois: Erika Harold
I am endorsing all Republican nominees for Attorney Generals in five states because they uphold the nonpartisan U.S. Constitution and provide the fair interpretation of the American laws. They strictly protect all American citizens against the illegal immigration and criminal terrorists. They tirelessly fight to ban the disastrous Sanctuary Cities and States for the criminal illegal aliens in the respective states. Notably, Erika Harold was Miss America in 2003. In California, I strongly oppose appointed-incumbent ultra-liberal Attorney General and former U.S. Congressman Xavier Becerra, citing his hyper-partisanship and all-time negligences of the legal American citizens. Like many modern and ultra-liberal Democrats in the Golden State, Xavier has always put the illegal immigrants and criminal terrorists first over the legal American citizens. SICKO! That is why I’m endorsing Republican nominee Steven Bailey against the horrible and corrupted Attorney General Becerra! I hope that the California voters must vote Xavier OUT and replace him with Steven Bailey!
I have rescinded my endorsement of Democrat Chris Haulmark because I am deeply troubled by the ‘emotional abuse’ and ‘domestic violence’ allegations against the deaf Kansas State House candidate. I am extremely very disappointed in Chris after I read the online news and watched the partial videos of two or three deaf women. It was so unbelievable! The Kansas Democratic Party and State House Democrats have condemned those allegations against Chris and pulled their support from his campaign. It would be awesome to witness Chris becoming the first deaf legislator ever at the state or federal level in U.S. history, but unfortunately I am so saddened that he is no longer fit in any public service.
Onward to Victory in November!
I wish all 40 endorsed candidates the Best Luck in the midterm elections on November 6, 2018! Onward to VICTORY!!!!!
