BATTLEGROUND STATE: OHIO
MAFPAC HITS THE ROAD TO SUPPORT
OUR TROOPS AND SPECIAL CANDIDATES!
At this very moment, MAF Freedom PAC staff are converging on the battleground state of Ohio. Not only is it important to win this critical state in order to FIRE OBAMA, there are also several candidates running for office in the State of Ohio who deserve your attention and support.
MAFPAC’s very own DEBBIE LEE, Gold Star Mom, will be touring the state, backed up by MAF BLOGGER DANNY who will be around to assist and record our journey to each district we’ve targeted.
Up first, MAFPAC will be arriving in Columbus to endorse Lt. Colonel Steve Stivers, running for re-election to Congress. You might remember Steve from 2010 (if you’ve been a MAF supporter that long) as we were one the earliest PACs to get behind his first run for Congress. He served in the Ohio National Guard for over 23 years, even while he was also a member of the Ohio state legislature. He authored various pro-military and pro-veterans bills before running for congress.
After two years in Washington, we couldn’t be more pleased with Steve’s performance. He’s stood by his principles and made some crucial votes. Earlier this year, Congressman Stivers invited Debbie Lee to testify before a House Committee Hearing on Capitol Hill.
Today we will be excited to meet with Steve and his great staff in Columbus again, to re-affirm our strong support of this conservative member of congress, and a veteran who has worn the uniform proudly and served his country all his life.
Also today, MAF will be visiting Bethel, Ohio to endorse another great military candidate, Brad Wenstrup.
Brad joined the US Army Reserve in 1998, accepting and Officers commission. In 2005, Brad was deployed to Iraq as a Combat Surgeon with the 344th Combat Support Hospital. For his service in Iraq, Brad was awarded a Bronze Star and Combat Action badge. He continues to serve in the Reserves and holds the rank of Lieutenant Colonel.
Among Brad’s accomplishments during his deployment in Iraq was the amazing success of turning around Abu Ghraib prison. You might remember the name Abu Ghraib from the unfortunate new coverage that was all over the airwaves some years ago. Brad was stationed at the prison after the embarrassing photos were released and he helped turn around the situation there, improving discipline and practices and working tirelessly to repair the prison’s tarnished image. He was successful and in a short time Brad had the prison running like clockwork, treating injured soldiers and Iraqi citizens, as well as training Iraqis in advanced medical procedures they never thought possible!
He is a doctor, a soldier, and a caring individual. Brad has volunteered countless hours to civic service, as a 14 year organizer/volunteer in the Big Brothers/Big Sisters organization. He currently sits on the board of Boys / Girls Hope, the Cincinnati Rotary Club, and he’s President of the Thank America First Foundation. Thank America First recently hosted a big event to thank US Military Veterans!
We are proud to be offering our endorsement to this amazing veteran, who not defended his country bravely, selflessly, saving innocent lives, and fostering greater cooperation with our allies in the middle east. Please help us send Lt. Colonel Brad Wenstrup to Congress!
