Peters Questions Why Horsford Won’t Debate Impeachment


Las Vegas, NV…Today Sam Peters, United States Air Force veteran, Bronze Star recipient, and Republican candidate for Congress in Nevada’s 4th District, asked who is Congressman Steve Horsford representing in Washington and why no town hall meeting this Thanksgiving break.

“Who is Horsford working for? Why no town hall meeting this break?” questioned the US Air Force veteran Peters. “It is clear he doesn’t want to answer the tough questions, because he is nothing more than a Pelosi puppet.”

“All substantive work in DC has stalled due to impeachment games. Everyone sees this do-nothing Congress for what it is. That’s why Horsford won’t debate me on impeachment and did not hold a town hall meeting.”

Earlier this year, Horsford was appointed whip. He is a ‘heavy’ in getting members of Congress to vote with Pelosi, which means he fully owns the impeachment debacle.

“We need a Congressman who works for us not Pelosi. It is time to put people first not use power to sway members’ votes,” said Peters.

Two weeks ago, Peters challenged Horsford to an hour long debate regarding impeachment. Horsford has refused to respond to date.

“My invitation to debate still stands. I believe that Horsford should explain why impeachment is so imperative to our nation. On the other hand, I think Congress should do their job and stop all the political gamesmanship,” said Peters.

Peters has sent a letter to Congressman Horsford stating that he is willing to meet him any time and any place in the 4th Congressional district to debate.

Peters is a veteran of the United States Air Force. He served his country in Afghanistan, Iraq, Panama, and Korea. He earned the Bronze Star for his efforts in Afghanistan.

After his service to our nation, Peters worked for two years as a corporate employee where he managed nearly $100 million in annual revenue across the largest geographical region in the United States. Peters settled in Las Vegas with his family, and exercising his entrepreneurial spirit, Peters founded Peters Family Insurance with two locations. He presently employs eight.

He earned his bachelor’s degree in Criminal Justice Administration, graduating Magna Cum Laude from Park University. He finished his Master of Science in Administration, with focus on law, through Central Michigan University. His continued thirst for knowledge, has also led him through a Graduate-Level Certificate Program in Organizational Finance from the University of Maryland University College.
