Florida's new election law praised as model for all states
The governor of Florida is getting rave reviews from conservatives after signing an election integrity bill into law.
Since taking office in January, Joe Biden has unleashed a left-wing agenda that has opened the nation's southern border to an illegal alien invasion, has threatened citizens' Second Amendment rights, has moved the country away from energy independence, has pushed severe COVID mandates, and has advanced the radical LGBTQ agenda. In response, conservatives are hoping for a red wave in the 2022 midterm elections.
Richard Viguerie, who has been involved in conservative politics since the 1960s, says while he is cautiously optimistic about GOP chances next year, it is not just about getting a Republican majority.
"If there is a red wave, and that wave just sweeps Democrats out, we want to make sure that is doesn't bring in just a wave of RINOs," he tells One News Now. "We want to bring in our principled, limited-government, constitutional conservatives, and you do that in the primaries."
But Viguerie, who has founded a new political action committee called FedUpPAC.org, points out that a person with such credentials cannot get elected unless he or she is running.
"So we've got to make sure that we find principled conservatives to run in the primaries, and then we elect them in the primaries," he explains. "And then when there is a big red wave coming in November of 2022, and the same in '24, our people will come into power."
The conservative leader adds that the GOP has elected too many RINOs, "and that's why we've really, really stressed in the next year the importance of the primaries; it's so important."
