For over 17 years, Christopher supported our nation’s mission in places like Afghanistan and Iraq. He worked to keep the information flowing for our military and allies. With the dual debacles of the Iraqi withdrawal in 2011 and the Afghanistan withdrawal in 2021, we’ve learned that fighting for what we believe in and care about doesn’t always work out for us. Sadly, our Congressional representatives seem to think that fighting is what they have been elected to do. Nearly every representative wants to “fight” for something. Perhaps it is time to stop sending people to Congress hellbent on fighting each other and send someone to represent and work with other adults to achieve lasting solutions for all Americans.
Growing up the son of a Southern Baptist preacher from Missouri instilled a deep respect for the people around him. His father taught him that standing for what you believe doesn’t mean the other person is wrong and doesn’t mean they should be hated. Let us not slide down a slippery slope to be mired in the quagmire of hate
and hostility. There has been too much hate in the halls of Congress where dialog and compromise should be the order of business.
Christopher will use his international experience, military experience, and working-class values to work with other representatives to counter the growing threats of China and other foreign adversaries who have consistently attacked our critical infrastructure. He will not propose toothless and feel-good legislation that does not solve the problems represented by climate change or ignore local and national
The decisions we make in this decade will determine our nation’s fate. As a liberal Democrat, Christopher will never choose an approach that does not benefit the constituents, state, or country regardless of the Party line. It is time to stop the hate and demand leadership from those that represent us. Christopher Bradley intends
to provide that leadership.
