(Why I’m Running For Congress)
Where are we now?
It’s been less than six months since the end of the Trump Presidency, but it feels like we have shifted a hundred years in the wrong direction.
We went from a border wall that was becoming more secure every day to the insane overflow that has resulted in children being packed into giant plastic cases – like little aluminum foil-wrapped packages – and human smugglers tagging their future slaves with wristbands. The first prayer said in Congress ended with an A-women. New gender laws mean that our daughters could be kicked off their high school sports teams by biological men, and our national debt has become a universal embarrassment.
Our kids lost a year of school, putting them even further behind others throughout the world. Columbia University had segregated graduations (can anyone say, “Jim Crow?”) And, Big Tech silences every voice raised in opposition to this anti-American philosophy.
But hey, at least the new government has its priorities in order regarding the military, approving new “hairdo friendly” and maternity flight suits for the women and clear nail polish for the men.
Racing to the Finish Line
My mother tells the story of how, as a precocious 4-year-old, I already knew I wanted to be a racecar driver someday. Growing up in what was essentially a single-parent household, however, that didn’t really seem like a possibility.
Racing is a very expensive sport to get into, and although I wouldn’t say we were poor, there were times when we barely got by. As a teenager, I managed to satisfy my need-for-speed (much to my grandfather’s chagrin) by “float shifting” the gears on his ’76 Ford Dump Truck down I-82 every time his back was turned.
After my service aboard the USS Constellation and earning a couple of Engineering degrees, I had a great job and a gorgeous girl and life was good.
But the 4-year-old in me still had a dream to fulfill.
So when I found out that a battered old racecar was up for sale, I managed to scrape together the money to buy it and, with the help of some great friends and a whole lot of hard work, brought that beauty back to life. In 1998, I finally managed to fulfill my dream, racing at the regional NASCAR Northwest series.
Whether it was racing, the military, business, or terminal cancer that gave me a five percent chance of survival, I’ve never known a challenge I wasn’t willing to meet head-on.
And what is happening to our country has ignited a fire in me once again.
This is where it begins
After four years of positive America-style growth both morally and institutionally, with a long list of wins, peace deals, economic growth, energy independence, and increased border safety, this utter reversal is impossible to ignore.
And faced with the choice to crawl up in a ball and pretend that our country has turned into a racist, sexist, evil nation overnight or stand up and fight for the American values which have afforded me so much, I choose to do the latter.
In doing so, I understand that I am, once again, agreeing to stand in the firing line for my country— knowing that “cancel culture” with its pernicious, foam-at-the-mouth rage at everything good and decent is almost certainly coming for me.
Sometimes, late at night, I look in on three of my reasons for running for Congress, asleep in their beds, and say a prayer for them.
I pray that they will get to experience the America I grew up in, where ambition and hard work are the only requisites for achieving your dreams.
Where God and family hold the highest place of honor. And where differences in race, culture, and opinion are to be understood, not exploited.
I want to remind them that the America I love may be hurting right now but that we have gone through hard times before.
She may be bruised, battered, and a little shell shocked from the criminal abuse of the left, but with the help of good friends willing to fight for the right causes and a whole lot of hard work, we can see her restored to health again.
I’m going to Washington to show my kids that I’m willing to do what it takes to secure America’s future.
Because her future is their future.
Celebrate loudly as you engage, watch, and help because we have nothing more to lose and everything to defend.
It’s going to be one heck of a ride.

Behind you 100% brother,call when you can
Thank you, Ted. I so appreciate your dedication and tenacity. It is VERY encouraging to me. Let’s keep working hard together to ensure we drive Washington from our core which is filled with integrity, virtue, and a heritage that we are proud to be associated with. One of my aims with this project is to ensure that Washingtonians can, once again, say they are proud to be from Washington state again. With the horrible leadership and the resulting destruction of the state for decades, it is time to change, improve, and to start winning again!
It’s a gutsy brave thing you’re doing, Jerrod, and I’m praying for your safety and success. May the Holy Spirit be your counselor and guide your every step!
AMEN! Thank you for praying and supporting this vital adventure. When I joined the US Navy many many years ago, they said it was going to be “an adventure.” It was but this is much more so and I will say that I feel the threat upon our nation right now, today, as we are attacked from within and we have terribly weak leadership whose primary purpose is to protect us from external threats. We will rise again. We will run again. We will win again!
Thank you Jerrod for running on true American values. We need more people to step up and face this crazy communist agenda the democrats are trying to sell with their own propaganda MSMedia. Just remember your roots. Remember where you came from and always let that be the drive of where you are going. May God Bless your family and your campaign.
Thank you, Kelly! My roots are firmly planted for sure! I am doing this selflessly for the people of Eastern Washington and all of America.
Thank you for your help and support.
Go Jerrod go !! Bring the USA back to where it belongs! The people! ❤️☎️❤️
Thank you, Nancy!
You are such an encouragement. Everyone needs a dozen or two Nancy Friedman’s in their lives!
God bless you!
I actually stumbled across your website by accident somehow my browser just pulled you up…but yeah, am I glad it did, I read everything I could find on you and what you have been saying is exactly what I’ve been thinking and feeling.
Jerrod I would vote for you faster than your race car, lol
Just tell me when and where!
I’ve only voted once in my 52yrs and that was for Trump, so I’m not real savvy on when to do it but I am registered to vote so I suppose I’ll get something in the mail. But yes we HAFTO do something about what’s coming to our children if send keep offices. I truly passionately pray for real family values and for our nation to get back to FEELING like home again. I feel like I’m in some kind of twilight zone dream, it don’t feel,look or act like the USA.
Newhouse has got to go.
Ty, God bless to you and family.
You are not alone in your feelings! We need to stand up. We need to go from the silent majority to an active and offensive (versus defensive) team! I am on mission to do just that but I cannot do it alone. We need a great team of people to stand with me in so many ways. Thank you for spreading the word around Eastern Washington and encouraging people to support this campaign because I am relentlessly and selflessly fighting for this great nation and all American’s.
b) telling others about this campaign
c) encouraging others to support – campaigns run on the people’s $ – my “product” is my passion to defend America!
d) get involved – we are building a team of 250-300 volunteers
In last post I meant
“We hafto do something about what’s coming to our children if DEMOCRATS keep offices.”
Bluntly and candidly, I’m sick of gays,trans-sexuals,illegal immigrants having more rights than straight gender accurate legal citizens.
I’m tired of anyone who can come up with a reason starting movements with agendas that restrain our children from excelling in school and making our school hold our children at a substandard or even a standard level if they can excell just because they can’t AND then blanket it as racism. ‘Ridiculous’ and stupid just pathetic.
Also have u heard about ‘white people accountability groups’
Yeah, this movement requires white people to spend a period of time in shame for their shameful history 50 to what 300 yrs ago, and the black person is supposed to hold their hand through this period and judge them as to if their shame was sincere and adequate.
Seriously.. Really?..they have their way and this will become law and they have the money and populus to do it.
That’s something right up pammala harris’s ally.
I’m scared for our country and kids…please I hope you can do something…and we need more like you in offices.
I really can’t believe that there really are people that stupid,vicious and EVIL.
You speak for many Americans. Most, I believe, are discouraged and disappointed with the destructive direction we are actively heading at the hands of a few leftist looneys. Thank you for speaking up and standing up. I appreciate the support and prayers for my work also. It is helpful to know that I am not alone in this journey to save America!
Keep going. Love people regardless of their state of mind. I believe many are simply misled and need guidance from a friend to encourage them to see the truth. I also feel like we are facing a spiritual battle. How else can you define it when demolition party elected officials in the state of Ohio act like activists in their own state legislature when a female member of their chambers rises in opposition to allowing biological men to compete in women’s support. This is such a stupid discussion that, to me, there is no question that it is evidence of a great, deeper, and more profound battle happening. This is a battle for not just the heart of America but the hearts of all Americans!
