Top Dem Congressman Sweating as GOP Challenger Makes Election Day Push

Article:

 

The fourth-most-senior Democrat in the House of Representatives is facing a stiff challenge in the upcoming election, and his fellow Democrats are reported to be anxious.

Rep. Peter DeFazio of Oregon has represented that state’s 4th Congressional District for 33 years, and he’s a big part of Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden’s plans moving forward, should Biden defeat President Donald Trump, specifically with regard to infrastructure.

Politico described DeFazio as “an infrastructure maven who is primed to play a major role on one of Joe Biden’s biggest priorities if he wins the White House next year. He’s also been a key player in Congress’s stimulus funding stalemate, a strong proponent for airline relief who has even bucked Democratic leadership at times.”

But the long-serving Democrat’s district nearly flipped for Trump in 2016, and this year he is facing a general election challenge from a young Afghanistan War veteran who has some star power behind him.

Alek Skarlatos, 28, is running against Defazio on a platform of enforcing the country’s immigration laws, protecting Oregon’s timber industry and defending Second Amendment rights.

The former Army National Guardsman also happens to be famous for bravely helping to stop an Islamist gunman on a train headed for Paris in 2015.

Skarlatos, and other unarmed heroes, subdued an armed gunman and saved untold lives.

The young man actually played himself in a Hollywood film directed by Clint Eastwood about the incident.

WARNING: The following video contains vulgar language and scenes of graphic movie violence that some viewers may find disturbing:

“You have shown that in the face of terror, you can resist,” then-French President François Hollande told the heroes in 2015, according to The Washington Post. “So you have given us a lesson of courage, of determination and therefore of hope.”

Skarlatos was named a Chevalier of the Legion of Honour — France’s highest decoration.

Perhaps de Fazio should remain in Oregon and rebuild the infrastructure destroyed by antifa.

Infrastructure Maven...noun, person laser focused on building projects of limited usefulness on property owned by politically favored people. See Kalifornia's "train to nowhere."

Just more of the same Biden Bribem schemes, Govt money (or foreign for that matter) siphoned off and Funneled to the parties in on the "Take" ie Hunter and Burisma..Hunter and China! In a text from Hunter to his daughter he says Joe takes half of these  as his share of the payments to a guy that was just kicked out of the Navy for dope and then gets hired to be on the Board of a Ukrainian Oil and Gas co Because of his extensive experience in those areas?..and Hedge funds out of China?..Oh yeah!
