Alex Barron has just announced that he has filed candidacy for Idaho State Senate in District 3. SurvivalBlog readers will surely recognize Alex Barron’s name. (He is also known as The Bard of The American Redoubt.) State Senate District 3 is in western Kootenai County. This is from his candidacy announcement:
With the retirement of Don Cheatham, today, Alex Barron of Post Falls filed his historic candidacy for State Senate District 3 which encompasses Western Kootenai County. Alex’s initial supporters include Neil Oliver, former Chairman of the Kootenai County Republican Party, Karen Calisterio, former Chairwoman of the Republican Liberty Caucus of Idaho and former Idaho State Representative, Elizabeth Allan Hodge, a fierce advocate for individual liberty and free markets and the recipient of the prestigious Idaho Freedom Foundation Ralph Smeed Lifetime Achievement Award.
Alex Barron was born in Chicago to a single mother. He graduated from high school with honors and joined the U.S. Navy at the age of 17. Alex served honorably in the armed forces during the First Gulf War and spent over 10 years serving this nation overseas. He graduated from the University of Maryland with a B.S. in Information Systems Management using the G.I. Bill. He spent the next 12 years as a successful small business owner – supplying critical information technology in support of our troops on the battlefield. Alex’s campaign will focus on promoting his Opportunity For All Agenda.
“I am running for State Senate because I believe my neighbors in District 3 deserve a new generation of innovative conservative leaders dedicated to unleashing prosperity for Idaho residents.”
“As I campaign throughout District 3, I look forward to hearing from the voters and better understanding their needs, ideas, and concerns. I am a conservative, dedicated to liberty and promoting the Christian values that Make America Great. We like our government small, our taxes low, our borders strong, and our speech free. When elected, my practical engineering thinking and my can-do military service attitude will be effective in protecting Idaho taxpayers and building up our great state with creative new ideas for our and future generations.” [Emphasis added.]
I wholeheartedly endorse Alex Barron’s candidacy. He is a genuine conservative Christian Republican with a pro-individual freedom outlook. He is strongly pro-life and pro-Second Amendment. I consider him the perfect candidate. And of course he is one of the key organizers of the American Redoubt movement.
I’ve made mention of Alex Barron many times in my SurvivalBlog’s News From The American Redoubt column. Barron has been a moving force in the Kootenai County Republican Central Committee where he helped to assure that the Idaho Republican Party kept true to its long-standing conservative platform. Though I’ve never met him face to face, I have talked with him on the phone. He is a genuinely likeable gentleman. He is intelligent, articulate, and although an outsider, he understands the machinations of politics.
