TRABUCO CANYON, CA – With just one day to go until California’s recall election, CA-45 frontrunner Shawn Collins released the following statement regarding President Joe Biden’s trip to Southern California to save embattled Governor Gavin Newsom:
“The first eight months of President Biden’s term have been riddled with crisis after crisis caused by President Biden’s and Congressional Democrats’ reckless spending and mismanagement,” said Collins, a combat veteran who served a tour of duty in Afghanistan. “Inflation is out of control. The COVID-19 pandemic has gotten worse. The withdrawal from Afghanistan was botched terribly, leaving 13 U.S. service members dead and dozens of Americans and allies stranded.”
Collins continued, “I’m running for Congress because we have a lack of leadership in this country right now. President Biden is leading from behind, and his enablers in Congress like Katie Porter are too worried about winning their next election instead of serving the constituents they were elected to represent. Everywhere I go in the 45th district I hear from people who are sick and tired of paying ridiculous prices at the pump, worrying about the safety of their families and communities, and seeing the continued effects of the pandemic on our district’s businesses. In Congress the only people I will serve will be the people of the 45th district.”
Shawn Collins is a conservative Navy veteran and active Navy Reservist. A husband and father, Shawn is running for Congress in California’s 45th District to serve our country and to continue his fight to help others achieve the American Dream.
Having served in Afghanistan, Shawn has spent his life fighting for the Constitution he swore to uphold and defend. He will take that same fighting spirit to the halls of Congress.
