Washington, DC–Congressman Jack Bergman, MI-1, Chairman of the Guardian Fund, is pleased to announce the PAC’s endorsement of 47 Members of Congress who are conservative veterans and/or minorities running for federal office in 2022.
Congressman Bergman stated, “As we celebrate Veterans Day, we recognize the critical role our men and women in uniform have on the future of our great Nation. Now, more than ever, it’s critical that we have Patriots in Congress who are willing to fight for the heart and soul of America.”
Bergman continued, “With over $100,000 donated directly to candidates this year, the Guardian Fund is poised to endorse the largest group of conservative Veterans and minorities in its history in 2022. We will not sit idly by and let leftists try to take over our government, schools, freedoms, and families. It’s time to stand up and elect proven leaders up and down the ticket.”
The purpose of the Guardian Fund is to promote conservative minority and veteran leaders who we believe will successfully restore our great country back to the constitutional republic established by our founding fathers.
The United States deserves to be led by individuals who not only understand our military, but by those who have sworn allegiance. Forty years ago, 72 percent of lawmakers in the US House and 78 percent of those in the US Senate honorably served in the armed forces. We need servicemen and women to safely lead us through the challenges on the 21st-century battlefield and to represent this country on the world stage.
Also, the diversity of the American people gives this country its unwavering strength and makes the United States exceptional. With the demographics of the U.S. population in continual flux, it’s more critical than ever for there to be an accurate representation of the American people in government. For far too long, Republicans have been bound by a grossly inaccurate description of their party and battled against definitions of conservatism ascribed by outside groups. The Guardian Fund wants to help elect more conservative minorities to Congress so that Republicans from all walks of life are given a voice on Capitol Hill.
Guardian Fund is a political action committee established in 2012 by Lt Col Allen West. The current Chairman is Congressman Jack Bergman, MI-1. The Guardian Fund has assisted in the elections of 160 veteran and minority candidates nationwide since its inception.
