Peters Calls Out Horsford on Impeachment
Las Vegas, NV… Yesterday, Sam Peters, United States Air Force veteran, officially announced his candidacy for Congress with a huge event at Aces and Ales Gastropub in Las Vegas. Over 100 people attended, making it the biggest Republican kick-off for Congressional District 4. As a newcomer to politics, Peters is showing great momentum in the Republican Primary.
“We need a Congressman who will put people first. My priority will be Nevada not DC,” said Peters. “As the next Congressman, I will be here at home when the House is not in session. It won’t take over 100 days before I organize my first town hall meeting. I will work with the leaders of and people in our communities. The people of this district will be my top priority.”
Peters is running to end illegal immigration, help our veterans, strengthen national security and keep our economy rolling. He is the only candidate with a real plan to stop illegal immigration. Peters will be rolling out other plans as the campaign progresses.
“I am not a career politician and I have not forgotten what ‘We the People’ means. I am a father, husband, veteran, and small business owner. Career politicians have not served us well. Now is the time for real leadership in Washington so we can get results on the important issues facing our nation and Nevada,” said Peters.
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 settled in Las Vegas with his family. 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. 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.
At the announcement event, Peters addressed the issue of impeachment.
“It is unfortunate for our country that Congress is more focused on playing politics than doing their jobs. While Horsford and the Democrat leadership push for impeachment, important issues such as fixing our border security and helping our veterans are being ignored. As the next Congressman, I will be focusing on making people lives better rather than political gamesmanship,” said Peters.
Horsford was for impeachment and then said he was undecided. This week he is now for impeachment.
“Is Horsford working for his constituents or the Progressive Caucus and Nancy Pelosi,” questioned Peters. “Having put my life on the line to protect our freedoms, I am disgusted that Congress’ priority is partisan politics. We can and we must expect better from our Representatives.”
“This is the best economy we have had in half a century. We have an opportunity to make some long term fixes on the national debt and secure borders, but Congress is squandering this time over their hatred of the President. It is deeply disappointing,” said Peters.
On February 4, 2018 Horsford told the Nevada Independent that he was for impeachment. (https://thenevadaindependent.com/article/on-the-record-the-policy-positions-of-congressional-candidate-steven-horsford)
After the 2018 Primary, he told NPR(10.15.18) that he wanted to see the results of the Muller report. (https://knpr.org/knpr/2018-10/steve-horsford-running-return-congress)
Now he is following Nancy Pelosi and is again for impeachment ahead of having evidence of any wrongdoing. (https://www.fox5vegas.com/news/local/nevada-democrats-susie-lee-steven-horsford-call-for-trump-impeachment/article_8e749962-def0-11e9-b8d1-83f8495177d8.html)
