We urge our conservative friends and readers to call their Representatives and Senators (the Capitol switchboard is 1-866-220-0044) to demand funding of the border wall in the soon-to-be-passed continuing resolution. Tell them no excuses; no border wall funding – means a no vote.

Dan Bongino earned our endorsement when he said, “I want my campaign to be a salute to working-class Americans just like me – the farmers, the small business owners, the manufacturers – who have been forgotten by this administration, they are now, and have always been, my inspiration and are the reason I’m running for Congress.”
Don Beyer is the liberal Democratic incumbent in Virginia’s Eighth Congressional District. Auto dealer and former Virginia Lt.
