I struggled with who I was going to support in the race for the Republican nomination for U.S. President. There are several quality candidates whom I could support in the general election, but I have decided to give my support in the Caucus/Primary race to Senator Sam Brownback.

Why did I decide to support Senator Brownback? There are a lot of similar views held by each of the candidates. One reason is that I’m most familiar with Senator Brownback, and he has had long-held consistent pro-life stance. Another is his character, he is a man of integrity (by saying this I’m not saying all of the other candidates are not). We share similar values, and I believe that he will be an agent of change in Washington. I’ve embedded his video announcing his candidacy for President below.

  1. Good for you. I like Brownback so much

    I finds it irinic that as a Catholic I have been hoping for the ideal Catholic to run for office that is not an embarassment to the faith and I end up supporting GOv Huckabee. To em they are almost mirror images of each other and I guess it was his Governor experience that tipped the scales.

    But then I read this

    and especially this at Belief.net

    and I think am I am making a mistake. That is what we should be aiming for. It is conservative but yet does not represent any of the bad things that sometime the extreme elements of Conservatism represents. I have to wonder if I think that Sen Brownback is to “Mr Smith goes to Washington” and is just too nice. What does that say about my outlook and if I have got to jaded. I shall prob stick with Huckabee but I am going to send money to Brownback too.

  4. Thanks for your comment. I like Governor Huckabee as well. Representative Duncan Hunter is a pretty good candidate as well. It was a hard choice for me, but those articles you cited really provide a good example of why I am supporting Senator Brownback for President.

    He doesn’t just talk ministering to the poor, the prisoner, and the downtrodden. He lives it. He is a compassionate man with sound policies. I appreciate how his faith informs his values. I also like his approach to explaining his pro-life stance. I think he has some good ideas on how to deal with Iraq.

    I believe he is a solid candidate. I am praying that his poll numbers will go up when people see the value that he would bring to the presidency.
