FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
July 14, 2020
Independent presidential candidate Tom Hoefling today announced his vice-presidential pick for 2020, long-time conservative activist Andy Prior of Arlington, Texas.
"First of all, Andy Prior is my dear friend. But, more importantly, he has also been a consistent, principled co-laborer in our efforts to turn the country around since 2007. In fact, I don't know anyone else in the country who has been more consistently principled than Andy. And, as anyone who knows him will tell you, he's very smart, and very capable," Hoefling said.
In their written statement, Hoefling and Prior laid out an agenda which includes the immediate abolition of abortion, and the restoration of the civil institution of one-man, one-woman marriage.
"We can't expect America to ever be great again as long as this bloody holocaust continues. We can't expect God's blessings on a land that continues to destroy innocent children by the millions. And we certainly can't prosper again as long as we continue to allow the destruction of our most fundamental and essential institution: the God-ordained, God-created, God-instituted, natural family. It's absolutely clear that neither the Trump Republicans, nor the Biden Democrats, will lift one finger to protect the unborn, or to restore our historic legal protections to the civil institution of marriage. So, we are standing forward on behalf of those millions of Americans who still believe in the original moral and constitutional principles of the country," Hoefling said.
Both Tom Hoefling and Andy Prior have also placed great emphasis on restoring and protecting Second Amendment rights, on educating Americans about the dangers of the destructive fallacy of judicial supremacy, and on restoring limited government that stays well within the bounds set by our Constitution, among many other things.
Andy Prior, forty-one, is a native of Grand Prairie, Texas, and a long-time resident of Arlington. Much of his childhood was spent in the Far East, including China and Japan. He has been very active in local and state politics, testifying before government committees on a variety of issues, ranging from the abolition of abortion, to ballot access, Home School freedom, excessive debt/bond packages, local property rights, and more.
Andy has worked as an educator, as an athletic director and track coach, and is currently a representative for one of the largest member-owned, not-for-profit insurance firms in America. He spends his free time traveling, doing genealogy research, and solving sudoku puzzles.
For various practical reasons, including the Covid-19 scare, Hoefling and Prior are running a classic American front porch campaign.
Since the shutdowns in various states have made it difficult or impossible to obtain petition signatures, the campaign will be running a qualified write-in effort in most states. Tom pointed out that if he had things his way, all elections would be by write-in. All it would take, he said, was for "each candidate to file the necessary paperwork proving that they meet the constitutional requirements for the office in question, and for presidential candidates to also file the necessary slate of presidential electors. Then let the people decide, without any reference to political parties whatsoever."
The General Election will be held this year on Tuesday, November 3rd.
