• Dr. Paul Broun is running for Congress again!

    Broun had a career 92% Freedom Index score while in Congress and often voted alone with Ron Paul, who endorsed him in an (unfortunately) failed Senate run in 2014. He isn't perfect but I would love to see him back and causing trouble for the establishment.

    Former U.S. Rep. Paul Broun formally announced his challenge to Gainesville’s Doug Collins after more than a week of not-so-secret speculation.

    “I’m fed up with what’s going on in Washington. I’m fed up with the Republican leadership. I’m fed up with the big government that’s been created by both political parties. We’ve been betrayed by the Republican leadership in the House and Senate,” Broun said on WDUN-AM.

    Broun changed his residency to Habersham County in order to run for the ninth district seat, which neighbors his old tenth district to the north. He represented a chunk of its residents before redistricting in 2012.

      It's much easier than doctoring.

      I had dinner with him one night, good guy. It's unfortunate that he wasn't able to pull it off.

      Hopefully he'll be back in Congress soon

      Good for him. I hope he gets back in and joins in with the Freedom Caucus.

      Correct. I would argue though that Ted is no longer 90% with us.

      I have more belief that Trump will audit the fed than Ted will shut down the IRS

      I think Broun stumped with Ron back in 2012.

      This is a primary challenge, rather than an open seat. What do his chances look like?
