“Hello, I’m Teddy Daniels and today I’m announcing my candidacy for United States Congress: I’ll be running in Pennsylvania’s 8th congressional District.

I’m a pro-Trump conservative Republican, I’m a wounded combat veteran, a retired police officer and a successful business entrepreneur. I’ve built and sold several companies for a profit.

I understand how the economy works and I understand how to motivate and help hard-working men and women in this country.

The Democrat Party, to me, is no longer a legitimate party. They have forgotten the hard-working men and women, they have forgotten about the people who sit at night and worry about putting food on the table and paying bills. I can be your voice in Congress, let me fight for you. Let me take the hits. I’ve taken them for 20 years as a police officer and as a soldier overseas in Afghanistan.

I’m 100% pro-2nd amendment, I’m pro-life, I’m pro-economy, I’m pro-immigration reform and I believe Americans need to come first. That’s the way it needs to be in this country, Americans first.  

I’m not a polished politician. I don’t have a speech in front of me telling me what to say, how to say it or what special interest I have to bow down to.  

I’m a fighter and I’m here to fight for you. I don’t give up, I don’t back down and I don’t give in. I am here for you, for the American people. I have broad shoulders, let me carry your voice for you. Let me carry your voice to the House of Representatives. Let me carry your voice to Washington D.C.  

With me, you’ll have a man with morals, character, integrity and a backbone to stand up and fight for what’s right. The moral fabric of this country has been under attack by the radical left for the last several years. That’s not what we stand for. That’s un-American. As Americans, we need to go back and we need to take the House of Representatives. We need to rebuild this country.

Everything this President is trying to do, the Democrats in Congress have become nothing more than obstructionists. Help me win this. Help me take this seat in Congress. Help me fight for you to make this country better for blue-collar families, for the steelworkers, the cops, the firemen, the veterans, for everybody out there who looks at their paycheck and they look at the taxes coming out and then they see all the illegals coming across the border getting everything handed to them for free. It’s not right and as an American, it’s time to take a stand. I hope other Americans can back me in this stand.

I’m a husband. I’m a father. I’m a fighter and I’m an American. I need your help. Together, we can do this and restore the moral fabric in this country,

Again, I’m Teddy Daniels. I’m running for United States Congress and I appreciate any help you can give me.

Thank you.”
