I’m going to describe a DC politician and lawyer who has been feeding from the public trough for almost 3 decades, and I want you to try to guess who it is.
This career politician:
Were you able to guess who it is? No, I’m not talking about Nancy Pelosi or Harry Reid.
I’m embarrassed to say that the big government politician I just described is a Republican Congressman from right here in the Garden State! His name is Leonard Lance, and I need your help to defeat him in the upcoming primary on June 7th, 2016.
Allow me to introduce myself – my name is David Larsen and I am moving forward with a campaign for Congress in New Jersey’s 7th Congressional District – proudly one of the most conservative districts in the state.
I am not a politician. I’m a successful small business owner, a farmer, a father and proud to be a Reagan Conservative. Until recently, I never had any desire to run for public office. But after seeing what Barack Obama has done to this country while my Congressman, Leonard Lance, helps enable it, I knew I could no longer stand on the sidelines.
You know as well as I do that Barack Obama is destroying this great nation with his socialist policies.
Unfortunately, too many Republicans in Washington have grown comfortable with the liberal establishment. They claim to be conservatives, but when push comes to shove, they roll over for the Left’s socialist policies.
Leonard Lance is one of those liberal establishment Republicans. All you have to do is read the next page of this letter, and you will be convinced that Liberal Leonard Lance must go!!
Liberal Leonard Lance represents one of the most conservative congressional districts in New Jersey with the highest ratio of Republican to Democratic voter registrations, yet he is one of the most liberal Republicans in Congress. His record speaks for itself:
Voted to Fund Obama’s Cromnibus bill & illegal amnesty
Leonard Lance claims to be against big spending and illegal immigration, but actions speak louder than words. During budget negotiations, Republicans had a golden opportunity to defund Obama’s massive spending and stop illegal amnesty.
But instead of standing strong, Lance caved in like a house of cards. Not only did Liberal Leonard Lance vote to fund Obama’s out of control spending – he even voted to fund Obama’s illegal immigration amnesty!
Voted for Obama’s TPP
Recently Lance was 1 of only 75 liberal Republicans to vote with the Democrats in favor of Obama’s historical Trans Pacific Partnership that literally hands over Americas control of our labor, immigration, and environment. While establishing it as a “Living Document”, disregards our Constitution, empowers foreign governments to dictate new American policies at will and by passing Congressional approval.
Lance under Criminal investigation by the OCE
Lance was one of 10 members of Congress [mostly Democrats] who accepted paid travel, gifts and other gratuities from a state owned Oil Company of the Azerbaijan Republic who is in partnership with Iran. The concealed funds were reportedly funneled through two Houston based nonprofits that sponsored the trip.
The Turquoise Council of Americans and Eurasians and the Assembly of the Friends of Azerbaijan were identified as the puppet organizations. This investigation is continuing on the heels of a similar Federal investigation of the 13-count indictment faced by Democrat Senator Bob Menendez for filing false documents and not disclosing trips and gifts received.
Recently, Obama and Nancy Pelosi needed just a few Republicans to vote to pass Big Spending, Illegal Immigration Amnesty, TPP and funding of Planned Parenthood. Liberal Leonard Lance jumped at the chance to help Obama and Pelosi and was one of only a few Republicans to vote for these socialist programs.
Lance recently funded Planned Parenthood
While campaigning during primary election cycles as being against funding for abortion clinics, Liberal Leonard Lance once again showed his true colors. In Sept. 2014, he voted along with 143 Democrats to fund Planned Parenthood, which according to their 2013 annual report, not only received $540.6 million from your tax dollars, but performed 327,166 abortions in their fiscal year 2011-2012 alone!
Not only did he vote to fund the nation’s largest provider of abortions, but also in the same bill, voted to fund Obama Care…Another primary campaign promise broken!!
One of the Most Liberal Republicans in Washington
Independent conservative groups have warned for years that Leonard Lance is nothing more than a Democrat in Republican clothing.
“Leonard Lance received one of the lowest ratings for a Republican in the entire congress… showing that he is clearly out of the mainstream for conservatives.”
—Al Cardenas, American Conservative Union Chairman
The National Journal ranked each Republican Congressman on a scale of 1 to 233 – with 1 being the most conservative. Leonard Lance was rated 221st, making him one of the most liberal Republicans in Congress.
The Conservative Review gave Lance an “F”, withascore of only 42% in its Congressional rating. That means that Liberal Leonard Lance has more in common with the Democrats in Congress than he does with Republicans!
Ever since Lance entered politics back in the 1980’s, he has dug New Jersey and this nation into a deeper and deeper hole, while selling out hisown party along theway.
I think you’ll agree that Washington could use a few more principled conservatives and a lot less self- serving politicians.
Congressmen like Liberal Leonard Lance aren’t representing the voice of the people – they are representing special interest groups, lobbyists and themselves.
That’s why I am now moving forward toward campaigning for Congress, to represent New Jersey’s 7th Congressional District.
I never had any ambition to run for public office…but after long talks with my wife and three daughters (and a lot of heartfelt prayer), I decided I couldn’t stand onthe sidelines while the Left and career Politicians continue to trample on our Rights.
Career Politician vs Successful Small Business Owner
Unlike Liberal Leonard Lance, who has been in politics for nearly three decades, and never ran a business. I amnot a career politician; I’m a businessman and Reagan Conservative.
I founded my own construction and home improvement company to help me pay for college. Through a lot of hard work, my businesses have continued to grow ever since. Thirty five years later, I am proud to have assisted in the creation of hundreds of jobs, many right here in New Jersey.
My experience as a small business owner gives me unique insight into what’s wrong with Washington. I have seen firsthand how regulations like ObamaCare hurt small businesses.
“The stakes for our nation’s financial future are too high to gamble on another term for Leonard Lance. New Jerseyans, and all Americans, would be better served by David Larsen.”
—National Taxpayers Union
I also understand the importance of living within your means. No business would be able to survive if it wasted money the way the federal government does
And finally, as someone who employs hundreds of people, I understand what it means to be responsible for the livelihood of people and their families. I know how hard it is for folks to make ends meet these days, and the last thing we need is Washington getting in the way.
Will You Help Me Defeat Liberal Leonard Lance and Restore the Constitution?
Your gift will help us fund voter turnout efforts, place campaign advertisements on television and radio, and send out thousands of voter contact mailpieces.
On a personal note, your gift of $30, $50, $100 or more means a great deal more tome.
Going up against the Washington establishment isn’t going to be easy, and itwould mean the world to me to know you’ve got my back.
