Bongino Given ‘Tremendous Compliment’ by DC Insider: ‘He won’t do s*** for us’

Dan Bongino, a self-described “conservatarian” running for Congress to represent Maryland’s 6th district, has publicly wondered why, despite massive grassroots support, the Republican establishment is refusing to support his campaign:

What’s your reason for ignoring me, and the many others fighting for this magical country’s tomorrows? Do I not fit into your box? Is it my youth, my message, or is it that I haven’t firmly planted my lips on your rear-end?

I’m a Republican because I believe liberty matters and we should not surrender OUR party to cronyists and connected-insiders.

This past week, Bongino got his answer.

I was paid a tremendous compliment recently, although it wasn’t intended to be one. One of our staff members was up near Capitol Hill a few days ago and, while engaging in a discussion with a “connected” DC-insider, the staff member asked why the Party infrastructure was not supporting my campaign. The response was priceless. The insider said, “Because he won’t do s%!# for us if he gets elected.”

Now, this “connected” insider may not realize it but, that he understood that with crystal-clear clarity tells me that, win or lose, I did it the right way.

Because Bongino refuses to bow down to the elitist Washington insiders, they will oppose him at every turn, forsaking both party and principle. I don’t know about you, but that’s precisely the kind of candidate we need to shake up a Washington that has become consumed with corruption and scandal.

Fixing this will not be quick, nor easy, but it is our only choice. I refuse to forfeit because the task is a difficult one.

Nothing worth having will come easy. I spent nearly my entire adult life combatting corruption, financial crime, and mismanagement, and I plan to relentlessly pursue this same agenda within the tainted halls of Congress. I’m not going there looking to make friends.

Bongino was a New York police officer before becoming a top agent in the Secret Service. His bestselling book Life Inside the Bubble details his observations of a dangerously overgrown federal bureaucracy. In his race against a Democrat incumbent, who happens to be the third-richest member of Congress, Bongino remains an optimistic warrior, driven to fight corruption.
