Call Chris Suprun’s bluff and donate to his Crowdpac campaign. If he raises $20,000, he will enter the 2018 race for the House of Representatives seat now held by Republican Pete Sessions.
Suprun gained fame for being one of the few Republican electors to refuse to affirm the election of Donald Trump last year. He took a lot of heat for his decision, and he still does on occasion.
While Suprun was a Republican elector last year, Crowdpac lists his party affiliation as ‘TBD’ on its page for the 32nd House District in Texas.
Obligatory warning, with apologies for bonking you all on the head about this fact: Suprun holds at least some different political beliefs than you do. That means he’ll sometimes say things and do things that don’t match your beliefs, and which might piss you off well and thoroughly. But if we’re going to fix our political system, we need to support not just Democrats, but Republicans and people with Republican leanings who have spines. Suprun’s spine has been tested, and he passed the test.
Standing back and watching bemusedly as moderate Republicans got picked off in primaries by frothing far-right moonbats is partly how we got into our current mess. We can’t afford to sit back bemusedly any longer. We have to stick up for non-moonbat Republicans. Please consider donating to Chris Suprun’s campaign. You’ll only be charged if he reaches his fundraising goal.
