Update: Unfortunately, Lorraine didn’t make it through the California primary, but she’s not out of the fight! There’s a lot of work to be done to unseat someone like Pelosi, and you can follow her progress on her Twitter page here.
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi doesn’t usually have to worry herself come re-election time, as her sheep-like followers in California’s 12th Congressional District usually fall in line without much need for prodding.
However, in November, conservative political commentator and author DeAnna Lorraine hopes to change that. She’s running against Pelosi on the heels of a failed attempt by House Democrats to overturn the 2016 election results and her message is resonating more than ever.
Though I don’t live in California and can’t physically vote for her, Lorraine captured my attention after I came across her campaign website and read why she’s chosen to fight a modern day David vs. Goliath battle against the career lawmaker.
“I believe God is calling myself and all of you to stand up and fight, and I commend you for taking that call in your unique bold way and be a part of His Army. Because we truly are at War, and we are going to need as many of you as possible in this fight,” Lorraine states in the opening paragraph of her website.
A campaign video for Lorraine summarizes why she’s running against Pelosi and truly captures her love for this country and what seems to be a genuine desire to help President Donald Trump continue to drain the proverbial D.C. swamp.
Some of ideas and policies Lorraine supports fall in line with the beliefs and convictions of every Trump supporter I know. Here are just a few that immediately stood out:
1. “I support the border wall and a tight, common sense border security and immigration policy.”
2. “Let’s get the homeless and unemployed off the streets, off government dependencies and into jobs!”
3. “I will always stand for the National Anthem”
4. “Fix the massive opioid crisis.”
5. “Pro 2nd Amendment”
Lorraine obviously faces an uphill battle as a conservative running against a liberal, elite incumbent in a state that has proven to be a stronghold for progressive, destructive Pelosi politics. However, with the rapid deterioration of once-beautiful cities like San Francisco and the surrounding areas, people there are downright angry. Even for many liberal voters, the status quo is no longer acceptable.
They want change and I’m willing to bet that they can put politics aside, for once, to give a fighter like Lorraine a chance to prove that, given the proper platform, it’s still possible to do some level of good as an elected official instead of spending time and taxpayer money on fighting the sitting president and advancing an out-of-control political narrative.
