A new conservative movement
I never planned to run for president. Unlike most candidates for the office, being president was never an ambition of mine. In fact, I have spent the bulk of my adult life avoiding public attention — choosing instead to quietly serve my nation from behind the scenes.
So, why am I running for president? Because I believe that it's time for a new generation of leadership in this country, and the stakes were just too high for me to sit on the sidelines any longer.
Right before I launched this campaign, I was working in Congress as the Chief Policy Director to the conference of Republicans in the House of Representatives. Like millions of Americans, I watched in disbelief as Donald Trump dismantled the Republican presidential field one candidate at a time. His vision of a bigoted, racist, xenophobic America was one I could never accept — and so, like you, I decided to stand up.
I believed then, as I do now, that it's time for a new conservative movement in this country — one defined by a renewed commitment to liberty, tolerance, and the foundational principles that have long made our nation a beacon of hope to the world. And over the past two and a half months, we've built that movement together.
Now, it's time to show the nation what we believe in. On November 8, we'll have an opportunity to send a message that the American people have rejected Trumpism, and that the time for this new conservative movement is at hand. How? By winning Utah's six electoral votes.
Polls show us neck-and-neck with Trump in Utah, and a single vote could make the difference. Can you chip in $5, or whatever you can, to help us reach undecided voters in these closing days?
