A credible America First Republican has declared his candidacy for Congress in Michigan’s 3rd District, challenging Never Trump Republican Peter Meijer.
Norton is running on a policy platform of an immigration moratorium, finishing the border wall, standing up to the corrupt oligarchy of Big Tech, and protecting the sanctity of life. He’s a small businessman who is a veteran of the Afghanistan War. Norton previously served as the Village President of Sand Lake in Michigan’s Kent County.
Meijer has cravenly postured before the Democratic Party and the establishment swamp, signing off onto the sham unconstitutional impeachment against former President Donald Trump. Norton previously ran against Meijer in the 2020 Republican primary in the 3rd district, but voter dissatisfaction with corporate libertarian Justin Amash largely prevented scrutiny of Meijer’s political positions. Meijer, who eschewed support of Donald Trump before the 2020 election, defeated Norton in the primary to replace Amash.
Trump Republicans have considered backings of primary challengers across the country who stand up against establishment Republicans eager to return the party to an “invade the world, invite the world” policy approach in the aftermath of Donald Trump’s presidency. With Meijer- the heir of a billionaire supermarket family- only serving in his freshman term, Norton’s challenge may prove to be viable.
This election, Republican voters of the largely pro-Trump 3rd district have a clearer picture of Meijer’s allegiance to the liberal political establishment. If Norton is endorsed by President Trump itself, it’s more than possible that voters could replace one of the wealthiest members of congress with a bona fide America First alternative.
