From the Gazette:
If Lauren Boebert lands a job in Congress Nov. 3, she will improve the brand of the Republican Party.
A 33-year-old wife, mother of four and owner of a highly unique business, Boebert drew media intrigue even before she shocked the political establishment by defeating five-term Republican Rep. Scott Tipton in the primary. In addition to movie star looks, she exudes passion for freedom, capitalism and the United States that makes the socialist, anti-America sentiment of AOC + three look gloomy and sad.
In the big league of Congress, she could lead a national, youthful, patriotic, pro-capitalist movement to rival the fashionable narrative that tells young Americans their country is evil.
Chip Roy is a genuine conservative, a committed husband and father and a true patriot with extensive experience in both the private sector and public service.
Most recently, Chip served as the Vice President of Strategy for the Texas Public Policy Foundation.

In that role, he engaged world leaders, faith-based organizations, and the private sector to enhance outcomes, while working to secure unanimous, bi-partisan support in Congress to re-authorize this life-saving program. Matt also spearheaded efforts to bring humanitarian assistance to the people suffering under the socialist regime in Venezuela, a country he lived in briefly during his childhood.
