David Larsen of Tewksbury hosted a "Rally in Defense of the Second Amendment" event this past Sunday at RTSP Range in Randolph. The size of the turnout, and their generosity allowed Larsen to collect enough food to feed 80 neighbors in need this holiday season. Combined with the fall harvest event he hosted on earlier, David Larsen has raised enough money and collected enough food to feed 130 families. David's goal is to feed 300 people this thanksgiving.
"Neighbors helping neighbors out of the goodness of their hearts, not faceless Washington bureaucrats redistributing your tax dollars in ways that you do not approve of. This is the America our Founders created. I am truly humbled by the generosity of these wonderful people. Especially during these extremely difficult economic times," Larsen said.
Larsen took the occasion to declare his intentions to run a primary challenge against incumbent congressman Leonard Lance in the Seventh District of NJ. Repeatedly citing the liberal voting record of Leonard Lance, Larsen made his announcement in front of over 300 enthusiastic supporters at the Defending the Second Amendment Rally that he hostedon Sunday. "Lance has voted to fund every aspect of the president's agenda, including Obamacare despite it's many unconstitutional clauses and it's funding of abortion. Now he says he will support federal gun control legislation. Congressman Lance is a reliable vote that the Democrats can count on in their drive to end constitutional government," Larsen declared at his announcement.
“The primary process presents the people the opportunity to choose the representative that they want, not one the political establishment determines. I encourage the people of the Seventh District to become engaged in this process and decide if they want more of the same from Washington or if they want a return to Constitutional and fiscally responsible government. Lance's profligate spending has created a debt burden that has diminished our economic standing and imperiled our nation’s future. I will not stand idly by and accept Lance's unconscionable votes to leave such a burden to the next generation to pay for his excesses,” Larsen said.
He went on, “Additionally, by refusing to join the fight to defund Obamacare, Lance ignored one of the last opportunities to reinforce the Constitution as a contract with the people ensuring them limited government intrusion into their lives. Because Congressman Lance decided to join congressional Democrats, our relationship with the government has been changed. Perhaps, forever. Congressman Lance believes that the government should have the right to tell you what you must buy and when.”
“As I’ve traveled the Seventh District and talked to the people I have heard their disgust with Washington. I want the people to learn more about Congressman Lance’s voting record and legislative history so that they may be sure that they’re voting for the government they truly want. I welcome the chance to contrast my vision of America with the incumbent’s record of crony capitalism, big government and unconstitutional mandated requirements,” Larsen proclaimed.
David Larsen is a third generation career businessman. He understands debt and that it should only be used judiciously to grow business, not government. He is an avid sportsman and gun owner and is a staunch supporter of the Second Amendment. He is actively pro-life. Recognizing that challenging the entrenched establishment of the Republican party is a major undertaking, Dave welcomes all volunteers.

In recent campaign mailers, incumbent moderate Leonard Lance - who claims to be the "Reagan Conservative"in this race - attacked David Larsen as a person unable to live up to the standards set by Ronald Reagan, who is revered as the Father of Movement Conservatism.
How then does Mr. Lance explain that Michael Reagan - son of the late President and heir to his political legacy - ignored him and enthusiastically endorsed David Larsen for Congress?
This easy-to-read comparison chart should make it easy to decide who is the true principled Conservative when you go the polls to vote
Here’s why: the Central Jersey Conservative Herald exposed Lance’s voting record in Congress – a record filled with support for more spending and bigger government that Lance DOESN’T want you to see.
The recent mailer sent by the Lance campaign to Republican households in the 7th District calls David Larsen a “tax-dodging, hypocritical politician” because Larsen “failed to pay his property taxes 21 times” and that he “benefited from Obama’s failed Stimulus Package.”
It turns out that Larsen already anticipated this attack as far back as May 20. In an interview published on page 6 of the Conservative Herald, Larsen explained in detail that while his property taxes were paid after the due date, they were paid in full – with hefty interest. He also explained what Mr. Lance knows perfectly well but refuses to admit: that the only “benefit” Larsen received from the Obama Stimulus was the profit his company made if a consumer bought one of his windows or doors: any tax credit that resulted from the transaction went directly to the consumer, not to Larsen or to his company.
Now here are just three outrageous votes that Lance won’t tell you about:
Oh…and Lance voted IN FAVOR of the Cash for Clunkers program - a complete waste of Stimulus tax dollars.
“Principled conservative?” Hardly. You can say that Leonard Lance is the Two Point One Trillion Dollar Man – except that he’s not nearly as dashingly heroic as Lee Majors
Incumbent Representative Leonard Lance is spending a great deal of both time and money trying to convince Republican voters in the 7th Congressional District that he is a "Principled and Consistent Conservative." He gladly discusses all the votes he cast against Obamacare and in favor of less spending and smaller government - but doesn't mention all the votes he cast in favor of more spending and bigger government.
Thanks to the Central Jersey Conservative Herald, Republican voters of the 7th District can study for themselves Leonard Lance's REAL record in office - both in New Jersey and in Congress. In the pages of this newspaper you will discover the TRUTH about Leonard Lance. You will also learn about David Larsen - a TRUE Reagan Republican who will provide the conservative leadership our district, our state and our nation desperately need.
