Take Back Our Country. Champion American Values.

I spent the past four years working to keep America safe from foreign threats and creating opportunities for Americans abroad. We were successful, and our nation remains the most noble force for good in the world. But now, all of that work is at risk with Joe Biden in the White House. Biden claims that he was “reestablishing” American leadership on his trip to Europe last week, but unfortunately all that was reestablished was the failing international policy of the Obama administration. He took us back to the days of “leading from behind,” in which our alliances deteriorated and our adversaries, China, Russia, and Iran, were encouraged to flourish.

While I am incredibly proud of the work we did in the Trump administration, now more than ever, we need more leaders who are willing to champion American values — to not, as the wisdom of the Scriptures suggests, “grow weary in doing well,” but rather to fight the good fight, to finish the race laid before us, and to keep the faith.

The United States needs a revival. We must never grow weary in our commitment to doing good. The attacks on our First Amendment rights of speech and religious freedom threaten the very foundation of what makes America the greatest force for good on the planet.

Last week, I launched the Champion American Values PAC (CAVPAC) to ensure we elect good conservative leaders with real character and real integrity, so that Republicans can take back the House of Representatives and the Senate. The “CAV” in CAVPAC comes from my time as a young U.S. Army officer serving in the Cavalry. The Cavalry rides to the sound of the guns without fear and never gives an inch. We must do the same to get America right.

In this effort, I ask that every one of you join with us in a new kind of Cavalry to champion American values. The Cavalry is the first to sound the alarm and the first to ride into battle, and that is what we must do now. To not grow weary. To fight the good fight, finish the race, and keep the faith.

I ask you to join me and be a champion in your home and your family. Be an unapologetic American champion. Be a champion in your church. Be a champion in your community and in your children’s schools. Be the kind of courageous champion worthy of our higher calling.

I wholeheartedly believe that if each one of us champions these American values, we can make the needed revival happen.
