    @HimesForGov

    Thanks Governor @jackswanner for doing the right thing and introducing the Naloxone bill. The Plains desperately needs a response to the opioid crisis and this is a start.

    Mr. Speaker, This bill is nothing less than common sense. I move for UC. I yield.

    Zach Himes (D-OK) Press Office

    Authorized for immediate release: Plains Gubernatorial candidate Zach Himes held a rally in Casper, Wyoming. A transcript of his remarks is below. "Hello everyone. How are y'all doing? Thank you all for coming out. I'm always so humbled to see the number of people who support us and our campaign. Folks, I believe that when we stick together, we cannot be stopped by any barrier. And that's just what our campaign is about: breaking down the barriers surrounding the Plains that continue to hold us back." "By the way, I'd like to welcome Congressman Vang to the Plains. Its not often that we find a man willing to campaign out in an area that is so reliably for his party but Congressman Vang is a leader and one who is determined to carry all of his side to victory, regardless of how weak they are. I suppose though, if I were Congressman Vang, I too would want my guy in control to implement my agenda." "But I don't want to turn this rally into a bash of either my opponent or a Presidential candidate. Because its not about them today. Its about you, the people of the Plains. You, the people, who have worked hard and lived honestly. The fat cats in Washington continue to believe they are entitled to your votes, that they are entitled to rule over us. So strong is their belief in their entitlement that they only come back here every few months to lie and grift, contort themselves in all shapes, and promise you the world. And when that is all done, they leave all us miserable peasants behind and hightail it back to their ivory towers, martinis, and other well-heeled elites. Perhaps they should remember that it is we, the people, who are sovereign and that they, the servants of our whims, are fully accountable. And we the people, demand change today. We deserve leaders who are ready to embrace the future and move the Plains forward." "When I am elected governor of the Plains in just a few months, the people of the Plains will be my priority. I shall not allow any elite from either side to dominate the conversation of how to move the Plains forward."

    @HimesForGov

    What does @spalding bring to the table? Pretty much nothing. He is basically your classic copy paste Washingtonian Republican career politician. Not much substance, even less charisma, but lots of cash. Are we going to let @spalding buy the Plains as though he's entitled to rule over us?

    Do you notice how @jackswanner doesn't mention @spalding once? Its because he knows that @spalding won't prioritize the Plains if he's elected. The Plains needs a #FullTimeGov.

    @REP_SHULTZ_TEX

    Remember when @spalding put aside partisan loyalty and voted to save American lives? Yeah, I don't either. @spalding is #SoftOnTerrorism.

    @HimesForGov

    Why don't you go back to fundraising with your donors, @JAllen? @spalding 's going to need all the help you can offer him. Everyone knows he has nothing else.

    Zach Himes (D-OK) Press Office

    Authorized for immediate release: Plains gubernatorial candidate Zach Himes spoke to farmers at a rally in Topeka, Kansas today. A transcript of his remarks is below. "Hiya everyone! This is absolutely incredible turnout! Thank you everyone who came out today to show your support today." "Y'know folks, I think there's something a lot of politicians in Washington forget. There are plenty of people out here, and we vote. And when we do, we bring our values to the polls: honesty, hard work, dedication, and resilience." "That's why I'm running today folks. To bring those values back to the governor's mansion. Those Washington insiders, they only show up a few times every year to bow and scrape and lie about why they should be given another term. And then, once they're elected, they go right back to taking orders from their real masters: the big banks, the big corporations, the big lobbyists. And in the process, nothing gets done. And for us, we are left with the sickening feeling that we have once more been betrayed by the people we trusted." "The time has at long last come for all of us to say 'Enough.' Enough with being failed again and again. Enough with the fiction that giving billions to the already richest will somehow help us. Enough to these politicians who tell us one thing here but do the opposite in Washington." "In the coming months, those people will try and tell you that somehow I, a humble State Senator from rural Oklahoma, am secretly a big coastal elitist. That I am out of touch. That I will take my orders from lobbyists who do not live here." "And when they do, I want each and everyone of you to see them for what they are: fat cats terrified of facing accountability, projecting their own misdeeds upon me, and believing themselves entitled to rule over you as though they were kings." "The chips are down. This is their final stand, their last ditch effort to keep you from the rewards you deserve for your honesty, your hard work, for your dedication, and for your resilience. This November, the people will finally have their champion in the governor's mansion. Two hundred and fifty years of history will show our answer."
