Rep. Louie Gohmert (R-TX) joined The Glenn Beck Program on Monday to discuss his reelection campaign. Rep Gohmert, a former state district judge who strictly followed the Constitution, ran successfully for election in order to create legislation as a representative.
"One of the very, very few good guys in Congress that we know. He repeatedly stands against the establishment, and he pays dearly for it every step of the way," Glenn said, introducing Rep. Gohmert. "They say he's just an embarrassment because he can't get along with anybody. No, he can get along with a lot of people. He chooses not to negotiate when it comes to his principles."
It was Rep. Gohmert that led the charge against John Boehner as Speaker of the House.
"When I stood up against Boehner and I led the charge, first one to stand up . . . I knew I was going to get attacked," Rep. Gohmert said. "But I knew what people at home felt, and I knew what the nation needed. So I didn't have any problems standing up and doing that, even though it was very uncomfortable."
Because Rep. Gohmert stands on principle and refuses to cut deals, the Washington establishment is doing their best to push him out --- and, in fact, they found two candidate to challenge him this time around with deep pockets.
"I had done so well in prior elections, I felt guilty if I tried to, you know, have a million, two million in my campaign account. So I was down, you know, under 200,000. And that turns out, if you don't have a big war chest, it's provocative [to] the self-funders," Rep. Gohmert said. "I don't have the money to put in that I would have if I had stayed in the private sector."
Rep. Gohmert has been a real Tea Party Patriots, one who has stayed true to those values and those principles. If you would like to help out with his reelection, go to www.gohmert.com.
