These guys said in their article I am not filed with the FEC but if you go to FEC.gov and type in “Teddy Daniels for Congress” you can see I am filed under C00713511 FEC number. Also, I hope Lou Barletta supports me in the primary, would love to sit down with him. – Teddy
The first Republican enters the race for the Trump friendly 8th Congressional district represented by Rep. Matt Cartwright (D-Lackawanna).
Teddy Daniels, a former police officer and wounded combat Army veteran, announced on social media a bid for the Congressional district in Northeast Pennsylvania.
In his announcement video, he describes himself as a “pro-Trump conservative” and believes the Democratic Party is not a “legitimate party.”
“The Democrat Party to me is no longer a legitimate party,” Daniels said. “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 or paying bills.”
Daniels said he is “100% pro-second amendment, pro-life, pro-economy, pro-immigration reform and I believe that Americans need to come first,” in the announcement video.
