A Conservative’s Voters Guide

The following Voter’s Guide was formulated by area conservative leaders. It is based on party affiliation, past voting records (where relevant), personal connections and even Facebook comments!  While far from a perfect method, it is felt the that following candidates would help or at least not harm the conservative principles the Republican Party was founded on. Not every office has a recommendation. When the choice is obvious or not enough is known, no opinion was offered.

A lot of work went into preparing this voting guide. 
Please share this with family, friends and neighbors frequently before November 8th!
