John Ratcliffe for Congress in Texas’s Fourth District

Conservatives across the country are scrambling to take back the Republican party from the political class.  However, there are so many inherent challenges in unseating entrenched establishment Republicans who enjoy superior resources and ubiquitous name ID.  Yet, one of the most auspicious opportunities has gone undetected by many in the movement.  There is a candidate who is committed to upending the political class and likely has the best chance to succeed of any challenger this cycle. His name is John Ratcliffe; he is running in northeast Texas (Fourth District ) and he deserves our support.

John Ratcliffe reminds us a lot of Congressman Jim Bridenstine (R-OK) in many ways.  Bridesntine ran against an entrenched Republican on a platform challenging the establishment and pledging term limits.  He did so without the support of most national conservative groups, yet he won decisively on election night.  Ratcliffe has quietly run an effective campaign against Congressman Ralph Hall (R-TX), the oldest sitting member of Congress, and after less than three months he was able to draw the incumbent into a runoff.  Now is the time for conservatives to act.

Congressman Hall is an honorable man and a veteran of World War II.  But the contrast between the two candidates could not be any starker.  Whereas Hall has turned his position into a career devoid of any desire to fight the status quo, Ratcliffe is picking the arduous path to a congressional seat precisely because he wants to send a message to career politicians.

John Ratcliffe served as a small-town mayor in Heath, Texas from 2004-2012.  While every other municipality in Rockwall County raised taxes at least once during the recession years, Ratcliffe balanced the budget without ever raising taxes.  During his tenure, the city of Heath’s financial rating was upgraded several times by all of the major credit rating groups to AA.  As a popular figure who was urged to run again, Ratcliffe declined, even though there was no law limiting tenure in office.

Ratcliffe also has a wealth of experience in law enforcement and counter-terrorism; he served as Chief of Anti-Terrorism and National Security for Eastern District of Texas from 2004-2007 and was then appointed acting-U.S. Attorney for that same district.  During his time as U.S. Attorney, Ratcliffe coordinated the arrest of 300 illegal immigrants in one day and prosecuted many of them for identity theft and Social Security fraud.  John will fill the void within the party to fight against amnesty and for strong enforcement of our immigration laws.

John is a smart, articulate, and soft-spoken man who could have chosen an easy path to power.  Congressman Hall has already pledged to retire after this next term.  He could have gotten a head-start and worked within the system to take over from Hall in two years.  Instead, he is challenging a long-serving and well-respected incumbent while pre-emptively pledging term limits.  He understands that we cannot waste a solid conservative seat. Texas’ Fourth District should not be without a strong conservative voice in what is going to be the worst two years of the Obama administration.

Ratcliffe articulately sums up the problem with the status quo in the party by noting that too many incumbent Republicans are “conservative philosophically and operationally liberal,” seeking to be “tolerated by their conservative constituents instead of fighting for them.”  Ratcliffe notes how hard it is to downsize bureaucracy from his experience trying to shrink a U.S. attorney’s office and a local government.  That’s why he is leading by example with self-imposed term limits.

He is tired of the establishment Republicans taking conservative districts and acculturating them to dependency on the federal government.  As such, he is committed to phasing out all federal subsidies of local enterprise – subsidies which inevitably come with strings attached.  As a successful small-town mayor, Ratcliffe understands that local governments are hamstrung by federal control of functions that are inherently local in nature and will push to devolve those functions to the states.

Ratcliffe’s message is clearly resonating.  After just three months of campaigning, he has held one of the longest serving members of Congress – who has never received less than 50% of the vote in any of the 18 counties in the district – to under 50% district-wide.  John actually won two counties outright in the first round.

He is on the precipice of turning the tide for the May 27 runoff.  If conservatives fail to join the fight we will waste this seat for another two years and run the risk of paving the road for an establishment candidate to replace him in 2016.  Or we could rally behind John Ratcliffe and help change leadership immediately.  The choice is clear.

  1. Ken Emanuelson Says:

    As a freshman, Ratcliffe won’t have the influence to affect a great deal in terms of policy, but he WILL have a chance to vote on the House Speaker. How will he vote on leadership?

  2. Lou gigliotti Says:

    the sad part is the failure of the Conservatives to actually look into the background of Ratcliffe, a named partner in a top Lobbying firm, the Ashcroft Group. A group that took a $52 million dollar no bid contract from the DOJ handed to them by none other than Chris Christie is NJ when he and Ratcliffe were all in the DOJ.
    Ratcliffe’s partner in his law firm in also Johnny Sutton who was famous for jailing the 2 border guards for 12 years while giving immunity to the Mexican Drug Smuggler.

    And recently, the Ashcroft group, lobbying for the Rockefeller Fund, got Christie to move $6 million dollars of the Sandy Relief fund, over to the Rockefeller Fund undamaged project.

    How do these facts get overlooked? Ratcliffe will have to answer to the lobbying group that he is a partner in, before he listens to the people of NE Texas.

    There were good conservatives in the race prior to the runoff. Where was the Madison Project then, when they had clean, unencumbered candidates to choose from?

    thanks

  3. Tom Smith Says:

    Mr. Gigliotti appears to be somewhat bitter because he has been unable to muster enough votes to unseat Mr. Hall in his previous attempts. His innuendos and half truths re Mr. Ratcliffe are best left unsaid.

  4. Lou gigliotti Says:

    It also appears that Ratcliffe was also unable to muster enough votes as well.
    None of these statements are half truths, they are easily verifiable and I can give you a bibliography if you would like.

    There is nothing bitter about getting the truth out to the voters but there is something sinister about covering up the truth.

    So I look forward to making sure that I am vocal about letting the voters have a true picture of the neferrious connections that do not deserve a seat in congress with a possible hot line to the Ashcroft Lobbying group to get voting instructions.
    The 4th district needs to know the facts.

    Best regards,

    Lou gigliotti

  5. Beth Ramsey Says:

    Lou, you seem to be saying that based on the Ashcroft connection that Ratcliffe would be beholden to a number of insiders in and out of Washington and that Ralph Hall is not that much of a Washington insider and that he would not be as beholden.

    be·hold·en

    biˈhōldən/

    adjective
    adjective: beholden

    1. owing thanks or having a duty to someone in return for help or a service.

    Look at the facts:

    Ratcliffe took not money from inside groups or organizations.

    So you tell me who is more beholden to Washington insiders?

    Who has been in Washington though:

    1. 2 un-funded wars

    2. A Medicare un-funded drug program

    2. Seen the debt grow to 17 trillion

    I don’t blame you for not wanting to run against Ratcliffe when he is the incumbent, your not stupid.

    Looks like a clear choice to me, your turn to decide based on the facts.
