Republican Teddy Daniels is running for US Congress in Pennsylvania, in the 8th Congressional District, and he has a great chance of winning because he already won. Daniels ran in 2020 and was well ahead of his challenger until the famous nighttime dump of ballots trashed his lead. Undeterred, he is running again, with the support and encouragement of his wife.
“Trump won this district by 9 points and even the Democrats here know that the Democrat Party is not the Party of JKF, they know I understand them and their working class values. They can look at my hands and know I am a worker,” Daniels told me.
Key Point: Daniels is a descendent of the American Revolution; to him, saving the Republic for his children is personal; he isn’t giving up.
“Running is about my kids, I don’t want them to have to fight against all the bad things we are seeing- and I have nothing to lose. If I don’t win, I am going to have the same life before. But this is my fight, I a not leaving it for my kids. Guys like me signed up and served the country overseas and we came back here and see that transgender storytime and critical race theory, and all the ways the country has changed, and we aren’t okay with it,” Daniels told me.
“We need people who can serve the country and I have done that,” Daniels said, talking about his motivation for seeking office and about his career in the military and being a “cop”.
“I’m a pro-Trump conservative Republican, I’m a wounded combat veteran, a retired police officer, and I want other people to jump in and run for office and serve in some way. We need to win this one. We also need people to join the party and make the party work the right way,”
Daniels told me. “We can not have people in office or in the party who are just there to play games and we need to expose those people.”
I asked him what was something about him that doesn’t get much coverage:
“A lot of people don’t realize that I was in law enforcement, I was a cop. The left tries to frame me as being anti-police, and that is a joke. They come after me and I am not changing a thing about myself,” Daniels said about some recent political hits from the leftist media over his social media posts, adding he isn’t scared of them.
“Republicans need to grow a backbone they need to grow a spine and they need to start standing up and fighting for the people they represent and we have not seen that as much as people are upset with the radical left agenda they are equally upset with the established republican party and there has been a void of leadership in that role,” said Daniels.
Daniels’ campaign released a video recently that almost instantly went viral.
Today’s politicians are bought & paid for HACKS who sell out America.
Joe Biden turned his back on Scranton Pennsylvania, and now he’s turned his back on America.
We need Conservative outsiders to drain the swamp & shake up Washington.

Steve Bannon hosted Daniels in the War Room right away to talk about his candidacy and his awesome ad.
On the podcast, Bannon teased slightly and pointed out that Daniels doesn’t look like the typical polished politician.
“Hey my wife is hot. She is the kind of woman that people see us together and ask themselves why she is with me! ” Daniels said to Bannon in good humor.
Daniels beat a field of 6 other candidates in 2020 in the Republican Primary in his first primary, even though he is not an establishment favorite.
Watch Daniels’ conversation with Bannon.
The 8th Congressional District includes Lackawanna, Wayne, and Pike counties and portions of Luzerne and Monroe counties. Daniels, 44, of Wyoming, said he has a combined 20 years in uniformed service to his community and nation.
“Teddy Daniels joined the Dan Bongino Show on August 2, 2021 to talk about his explosive new ad, how corrupt swamp RINOs always back down to the left, and the need for America First patriots to step up and take back America. Listen to the full interview below:”

Remember, it is key: Daniels beat a field of 6 other candidates in 2020 in the Republican Primary in his first primary, even though he is not an establishment favorite. So let’s see if he can do it twice. Daniels’s primary is June 2.
