Conservative 2020 Wave Grows as Record Number of GOP Candidates File to Run

Fed up with liberal extremists, a record number of Republicans are waging an all-out fight to reclaim the House of Representatives after the 2018 Democratic wave took it away from the GOP.
Federal Election Commission paperwork shows that in 2019 alone, a record 781 Republicans filed required forms to run for the House, up from 593 GOP candidates in 2017, according to Fox News
Many echo the message of Gavin Rollins, a captain in the Florida National Guard who will be seeking the House seat being vacated by Republican Rep. Ted Yoho.
“I say ‘fight alongside our president.’ I chose that phrase very carefully because a lot of candidates who are Republican will say, ‘I support our president.’ But it’s not enough to support him. We need people in Congress fighting alongside him. He had my back in a combat zone. Do you think I’ll have his back to Congress? Absolutely,” he told Fox.
Rollins, 33, said new, young voices need to counteract what he called the “socialism” of liberals such as Democratic Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez of New York.
We must save America from socialism! President Trump is fighting back, but he needs reinforcements in Congress! @realDonaldTrump @USTermLimits @AnthonySabatini @elinashirazi @marisa_schultz

“I get frustrated by AOC. She’s a millennial who just jumped in and is spouting off all these things. But what has she done to give back to the community?” Rollins said.
“What has she done to serve and make the world a better place at the local level or within her community before she’s now lecturing the rest of us on our country should be? And as a millennial who has served in the classroom, who has served overseas, I want to push back against that narrative.”
