Make it National

It’s incredibly important to me that I build my campaign not just on my own personal principles but on those that are brought to me from the perspective of the people within this district.  

I’ve already received a great deal of valuable input from the community and, from this, was reminded just how much local politics can have a national impact. 

The first vote that will be cast following the 2020 elections is for the Speaker of the House by Congress. It is a critical decision the newest House of Representatives makes and is typically contingent upon the majority party. 


How can you make a difference?

If you’d like to see Nancy Pelosi’s term end on January 3rd, 2021, we must replace the congressmen and women who will support her. Incumbent congressman of the 4th district, Kathleen Rice, will undoubtedly vote for Pelosi’s re-election. Therefore, replacing Pelosi starts with replacing Rice. 

When the midterm elections take place this November, I hope you will feel empowered to express your distaste for the Democrats behavior during the past two-year cycle and activate the power of making local politics national by turning the 4th district red.

Thank you for your support and contributions. 

– Steve Raiser, Raiser for Congress
