TKC MUST READ!!! SHOCK!!! PROGRESSIVE JOCO CANDIDATE FOR CONGRESS BRENT WELDER STANDS UP FOR $15 FAIR WAGE!!!
The upcoming election in JoCo is getting closer than most suburban voters realize and early on a real challenger to Congressman Kevin Yoder has emerged.
We've talked about Brent Welder previously and had a bit of fun with his endorsement from rapper Killer Mike.
But recently via social media . . .
BRENT WELDER IS MAKING WAVES WITH HIS $15 MINIMUM WAGE SUPPORT!!!
Check his position statement in no uncertain terms:
Now, this is important for a lot of reasons . . .
- There has been an influx of lower wage workers in the Kansas 3rd District. And yes, a lot of those people vote.
- Again, this is a hardline progressive position which strikes a DEFINITIVE difference betwixt Welder Vs. Rep. Yoder - Previously, Democratic Party candidates have simply attempted to adopt softer GOP policies rather than risk outright opposition.
- Remember that JoCo voted for Bernie and then Hillary. If Mr. Welder can capture more grassroots support among the emerging community of progressives in this enclave, he presents a real threat to Congressman Yoder.
Better still, some of the most vicious right-wing partisan hacks who have always accused Congressman Yoder of being a RINO must now tout his Conservative credentials if they want to keep the only county that matters in Kansas controlled by Republicans.
