Nampa, Idaho – Brian Lenney announced his candidacy for the Idaho state senate in district 13. Lenney is a tenacious Christian patriot, homeschool dad, and an America-first blue-state refugee.
“I’m running for state senate because Idaho is in TROUBLE. And if you think Idaho is free and “it could never happen here,” you’re not paying attention. Because even with overwhelming Republican leadership at every level – we’re on a dangerous trajectory. I’m convinced this is because we’re a red state but we’re not conservative.” Lenney says.
“Most Republicans in our state legislature are more interested in conserving the Republican establishment instead of fighting for the rights of Idahoans or advancing conservative principles. They’re loyal to the party – not to the people. For instance, the current district 13 Senator has an “F” rating with the American Conservative Union and the Idaho Freedom Foundation. He’s failing Nampa as well as Idaho. The Idaho Freedom Foundation even said he ‘regularly voted to impose new restrictions on businesses, expand government programs, and limit individual freedom’ in 2021. This man is a Republican and claims to be a conservative… yet his voting record says otherwise.”
“So after closely watching the dismal performance of our elected officials in 2020 and 2021, I decided that District 13 in Nampa needs an ACTUAL America-first, liberty-minded, small-government advocate in Boise. Someone who will FIGHT instead of running away. Someone who will actively oppose the death of the freedom and the suicide of our state. And someone who will always put Idahoans, Americans, and the United States FIRST.” Lenney said.
“As a husband and a father, I won’t stand by and watch our legislature send Idaho down this dangerous path any longer. And I won’t let one of the greatest states in America go down the path that California did – at least not without a fight.”
Lenney lives in Nampa with his wife and four kids when they’ve been actively involved in the homeschool and local community for more than 11 years.
