I am running as a "freelance candidate" in in the Republican primary for US Congress, MO 7th.
I'm independent-minded, rejecting the money of the wealthy elite, and questioning the agenda of the political insiders.
My opponent, Billy Long, has over $500,000 in the bank and virtually unlimited access to money. He has soundly defeated every primary challenger since taking office. In 2016 his closest primary opponent got only 13%.
Establishment Republicans see my campaign as a novelty, irrelevant – no real threat.
Clearly the table is set. Any challenge by a conventional candidate using traditional methods will fail! So, I've decided not to try to win. Instead, I will play a different game by different rules.
