A Republicans From the state senator Michigan He announced that he would run for Congress and quit the military after 21 years Biden Administration’s The Afghanistan withdrawal and military COVID-19 vaccine order has been violated.
State Sen. Tom Barrett, an Army veteran, said he was the Rep. For the new congressional district around Lansing. Elissa Slatkin, D-Mitch, announced Monday that she will face off.

LBL caught up with a former helicopter pilot Monday to discuss his campaign for the US House of Representatives.
Barrett cited Biden’s “complete collapse of leadership” during the devastating Afghan withdrawal as “opening the door” to his decision, calling the withdrawal of the chaotic army an “unforgivable judgment omission” that caused the deaths of 13 US service members.
“And then, following through on this unconstitutional intrusion of the individual rights and freedoms of the people surrounding the vaccine mandate, it was really a straw that broke the camel’s back for me,” Barrett said. “And I decided I couldn’t sit down anymore.”
“As a helicopter pilot in the Michigan Army National Guard, I cannot fight the Biden administration,” he continued. “If I’m going to fight back and do something about it, it’s a meaningful difference for the men and women I’ve served.”

State Senator Biden burned down the administration for “ignoring” the army’s vaccine immunity for those recovering from the coronavirus and returned to his campaign promise to not enforce the vaccine mandate.
Barrett said he wants to “stand up” and give voice to those in their shoes who “can’t stand up for themselves” like “younger forces”.
“I am opposed in principle to the forced nature of this mandate. For those who want to get vaccinated, that is their decision and I fully support it,” Barrett said, noting his work in the Michigan legislature. Make sure that vaccine access is “heavily available” for those who want the vaccine.
“But I’m not going to make it mandatory or mandatory on anyone,” Barrett continued. “It’s a personal health care decision they have to make, and only they.”
Barrett said his campaign focuses on the “economic devastation” caused by the Biden administration’s policies, such as rising fuel costs, inflation and other economic problems.
She said her campaign focuses on “empowering parents” when it comes to their children’s education, noting that there are schools in Michigan that represent “closed doors to parental input.”

“And now they have the Department of Justice and the FBI in arms against the Biden administration inexcusably,” Barrett said. “We will fight back to give parents a voice in their children’s education and put them back in the driver’s seat.”
The former military helicopter pilot said he thinks the recent GOP election gains in Virginia, New Jersey and across the country are an indication of how his race and other 2022 races are rallying around the US.
“I think the parents’ rebellion to raise their voice and vote for candidates gives them the empowerment they crave and seek and God has given them the right to decide on the care and custody of their children,” she said. .
“Its reflection has been seen in Virginia and New Jersey, and the countless other elections we have seen over the past few weeks, and its going to be next year,” Barrett continued.
