This will be interesting if they run. Both of them are among the top 15 or so most reliable reps for us and popular with grassroots republicans. I don't trust them on things like the war on drugs, but in a normal race it would be one of them vs an establishment candidate.
They live in the district and are popular but even considering that, to me taking on one of the Huffines seems like a suicide mission for a conservative. Perhaps the establishment will find a special interest candidate to muscle past them and take on Huffines, or perhaps they will get behind one of them to stop Huffines.
Phillip maxed out in both 2008 & 2012 for Ron Paul. Don started Santa Rita PAC for Ron and Phillip gave $50,000. Phillip maxed out for Rand for President and gave quite a bit of money to his PACs. Phillip also gave to liberty guys like Adam Kokesh, Broden, and Robert Lowry for Congress, and Joe Miller for Senate.
Don has been a great voice for us so far, the main voice for constitutional carry in the senate, and pushing to ban vehicle inspection taxes, and lots of other taxes.
Frankly, they are both rich and well connected. I think Phillip will be a great addition for Liberty, money will not be the issue in his race, he can self fund + get huge checks from lots of business people, friends, and political people most of the liberty movement does not have access to including people usually in the Cruz or Trump network. None of that has proved a problem with Don, he is solid for liberty and has been his own man and I believe Phillip should be his twin in every way.
