During a special runoff election in 2021, radical Democrat Raphael Warnock won a Senate seat in the state of Georgia.
Warnock defeated Republican Kelly Loeffler, who was appointed after former Senator Johnny Isakson resigned with three years left in his term. Because of this turnover, Warnock will face another Republican opponent in November 2022.
One possible Republican challenger to Warnock is former Navy SEAL Latham Saddler, who announced his candidacy in April.
I recently had the opportunity to speak with Saddler, who noted that we need our best and brightest in Washington, D.C. — and added that he hopes his candidacy will serve as a “call to service for any patriot that’s ever thought about serving their country in public office.”
“This United States Senate race in Georgia is the number one race next year for the Democrats to preserve this seat where we just lost it last year, and for we as Republicans to flip this seat,” Saddler stated before noting that Warnock is raising a lot of money to retain his position.
Saddler continued, saying that “we need Country-First, America First leaders in Washington who are going to put our country back on the right track.”
He concluded with a message for anyone who might be interested in serving in public office:
The mission of my campaign — it’s not just to win this U.S. Senate seat, it’s to bust open the gates for other America First patriots to step into this arena of politics and serve their country in public office, particularly in offices in Washington, D.C, because the fact that we don’t have our best and brightest up there is killing us, it’s killing our country.
And there are plenty of fantastic leaders in this country that are not serving in an office — and it’s for good reason. I mean, it’s the political arena, and it’s nasty, but we don’t have the luxury anymore. We don’t have the margin anymore of sending subpar leaders to make the critical decisions for our country.
“So, it’s my goal with my campaign that when we win this seat back from Rafael Warnock, my victory speech is going to be a call to service for any patriot that’s ever thought about serving their country in public office, take a look at what we’ve just accomplished,” Saddler said. “You don’t have to kiss rings; you don’t have to sell your soul; you don’t have to sell out to be a leader. One person cannot fix this country. We need a mass influx of fantastic leaders, and it’s the mission on my campaign to chart that pathway so that we can get a lot more strong leaders in Washington, and we all get up there and right this ship.”
My full interview with Saddler will be posted on Sunday.
