Daniel appears to be the type of candidate we in the TEA Party like to support – a citizen legislator. He has not spent his life in politics and therefore isn’t beholden to anyone except We The People. Until recently, our Congressmen and Senators have been plucked from the political track of their home state Houses. But We the People have learned how harmful it is to keep re-electing career politicians. We’re learning that many individuals from the business community: doctors, nurses or just about any hardworking American can be a much better choice. They haven’t sold out (as many politicians do) to keep getting re-elected. This may sound harsh, but after waking up to the horror that was the United States elected officials in 2006, I am compelled to help those who see the nightmare I do, and as an American citizen, are called to action.
I believe Daniel Bongino is that person for Senate in the State of Maryland. It also helps that he was Secret Service for Barack Obama, and has observed up close and personal that with which he could never agree. Thus he is running for office – as a Republican. We The People Call Our Local Citizens To Action, Here Is Someone Who Has Answered.
A former Secret Service agent who vowed to take a bullet for Presidents Obama and Bush is now trying to take Benjamin Cardin’s Senate seat.
Daniel Bongino spent 12 years with the Secret Service before he resigned in May to launch a Senate campaign to challenge the Maryland Democrat.
Bongino, 36, who is running as a Republican, told Fox News this week that his Secret Service experience qualifies him to handle the rough-and-tumble of the upper chamber.
“That job is high stress, high octane all the time and they force leadership on you,” he explained. “They don’t tolerate fools…If you don’t make it, you’re broken pretty quickly.”
Bongino spent three years protecting Bush and two years for Obama. He says Obama was a “wonderful guy” and that his political ideological differences with him aren’t personal.
But Bongino’s mission to defeat Cardin won’t be easy.
The freshman senator had a 48 percent overall approval rating in May 2010, according to the Washington Post. But congressional approval hit a new low at 12 percent, according to an Associated Press-GFK poll last month – a figure that Bongino will likely try to seize on.
So, if you believe in getting new people into Congress to change the pay for play horror show you’ve been witness to for the past several years, please go to his site, find out where he stands on the issues, and donate. Daniel Bongino For U.S. Senate
