Vote Here (sign)A Tennessee-based pro-Israel advocate is considering a run for Marsha Blackburn's U.S. House seat now that the conservative Republican lawmaker is running for Senate.

Laurie Cardoza-Moore is president of Proclaiming Justice to the Nations (PJTN), where she has been staunch supporter of Israel and its people. Throughout her activist career, she has also been a stalwart supporter of the rights of the preborn.

When Senator Bob Corker (R) announced he would not again run for Senate, Blackburn announced her intention to seek his seat, creating an opportunity for Cardoza-Moore.

"This is really a part of my own personal journey and destiny," she shares. "Years ago, when I was lobbying for Tennessee Right to Life, in my quiet time, the Lord said to me that when Marsha moved up … I would move in."

Still, when Blackburn moved up from the Tennessee Senate to Congress, Cardoza-Moore says the Lord told her that was not the time.

"But when I found out that it was a done deal that Congresswoman Blackburn was going to run for Bob Corker's Senate seat, I knew it was time," she continues.

Cardoza-Moore will not make the final decision until one important condition is met:

"That I raise $2 million for this race. And if God would have it that that funding would come in, then I would be honored to run and represent the Seventh Congressional District of Tennessee."

Presently, the PJTN president would have at least one Republican opponent, as state Senator Mark Green has already declared his candidacy.

John KasichGov. John Kasich (R-Ohio) believes the third time’s a charm as he reportedly strategizes for a White House run on the GOP ticket for 2020, and he’s adopting a campaign platform right out of the Democratic Party’s playbook – complete with open immigration and climate change alarmism as its hallmarks, while moving away from nationalism.
