Blaze: A wounded warrior who was badly injured while serving in Afghanistan is running for U.S. Senate in Nevada, announcing his campaign with a powerful video highlighting his military service.
Retired Capt. Sam Brown, an Army veteran and Purple Heart recipient, will run as a Republican and seek to unseat incumbent Sen. Catherine Cortez-Masto (D-N.V.) in the 2022 midterm elections. His campaign announcement video, titled “Duty First,” focused on his recovery from his injuries and the need for America to recover from the economic devastation of the coronavirus pandemic.
“America needs its own recovery. Record unemployment. Massive business closures. Ruined dreams. Desperate families. But rather than sharing in our sacrifice, our political leaders bicker,” Brown narrates in the video, released Wednesday. “Where’s the accountability? Too often it was their policies that created the misery they now promise they’ll save us from, as though the $1,200 they sent us will buy back our crushed hopes.” more
