Hey, It’s Weh! What’s Not To Like, New Mexico?

With the US elections almost upon us, a quick endorsement from RRA, though I don’t know if I have many readers in New Mexico.

According to WND, the Republican candidate, retired U.S. Marine Corps Col. Allen Weh, is gaining on the incumbent Democrat, Mark Udall.

Basic policy issues divide them of course, but what makes me want to commend Weh is the stark contrast in how he perceives service to one’s country.


U.S. Marine Corps Col. Allen Weh (Ret.)


 As WND reports, Weh is a retired United States Marine Corps colonel who was awarded a Silver Star, two Bronze Stars, three Purple Hearts and five Air Medals among other honors for his heroism in combat. Weh, 71, served the nation in uniform in Vietnam, the Gulf War, Somalia and the Iraq War.

He is appalled by Udall’s foreign policy and military records both personally and professionally.

“On national security, no contest,” he said. “He’s never served in uniform a day in his life. In fact in 1970, when he graduated from college, he decided to go to England to avoid service in Vietnam. That may not matter to a lot of people, but I’ll tell you what. It matters to a whole lot of Vietnam veterans.”


And defending one’s country is not merely something needful in the past.




Weh describes the borders as porous and directly blames the president for allowing it to happen.   http://www.wnd.com/2014/11/upset-war-hero-suddenly-threatens-to-unseat-dem-senator/

Anyway, that’s just one of the battle-ground states, and it would be amiss not to mention two more, viz.- 

North Carolina, where Republican Thom Tillis has an excellent record of defending decent values…

and Arkansas, where a most duplicitous man, Mark Pryor, is facing another real conservative, Tom Cotton.
