Are the tables turning in Maryland?
Remove yourself from the monotonous political rhetoric for just a moment, as difficult as that may be at this point in an election year.
Consider a reality that needs no embellishment. Consider a race that stands on its own as a stark choice of great consequence. A story of the longshot. The kind of story that Americans are proud to say can happen here.
In a recent Facebook post, Maryland’s Dan Bongino decided the time was now to silence his opponent’s downright fallacious — but all too commonplace — political rhetoric. The kind of rhetoric that, if given enough money, stamps out the potential of great candidates for office.
After a long day of campaigning in the rain I just returned from the grocery store. Diapers are really expensive, as many of you already know.
Why am I telling you about the price of diapers? Because my multimillionaire opponent has spent over $600,000 of his $250,000,000 net worth on television ads attacking me for, get ready for it, a “war on women.”
I’ve tried to let it go, but I won’t any longer. Does this fake know anything about me?
He has no idea how hard my wife and I have to work to pay for little things like diapers for my daughter.
He has no idea how painful it was for me, as a child, to watch my single mother struggle, working at the checkout counter of a local supermarket to never make ends meet.
He has no idea how hard it was for me to witness the ever-present pain in the eyes of my now departed grandmother, who lost her only son in combat in Thu Duc, Vietnam, as she parted with her humble life savings to help us survive and pay the bills.
He has no idea how helpless it felt to watch my wife struggle to keep working, just days after the birth of both our daughters, because we couldn’t afford the time off.
He has no idea because he doesn’t live in the America I live in. His America is one of board memberships and cocktail parties. My America is one of local library memberships and block parties. In his America taxes don’t matter because his massive wealth insulates him from the consequences. In my America, taxes can quickly put you out of your home and your business. Finally, in his America, they falsely use cowardly tactics like fictitious “wars on women” to deceive voters. In my America, my life has been shaped, altered and bettered by the women who made everything I’ve been able to accomplish so far, possible.
I’m now ready with a full tank of emotional energy to finish this fight, he poked the bear. I’m going to win this race.
If you live in Maryland’s 6th District, odds are, Dan Bongino has already stood at your doorstep; but where has John Delaney been?
The tables have turned, Maryland. Isn’t it about time you sat down on the side so many of you have long claimed to be on?
These are the stories of victory Americans are proud to tell. On November 4th, cast your vote for Dan Bongino. We may yet have room for another story.
