Ten Buck Fridays: The winner is Van Irion

Right Klik has the winner of this week's 10 Buck Friday poll and offers a bit of background information on Van Irion the candidate for Tennessee's 3rd Congressional District:
Van Irion has been married for 14 years, and he and his wife have two young daughters. A patent and Constitutional attorney with his own law firm, he's admitted to practice law before the U.S. Supreme Court. He has handled several Constitutional cases pro bono, including Obamacare Class Action.

Van is a veteran of the U.S. Air Force, having served in Operation Desert Shield as an Air Traffic Controller. Van has a biochemistry degree from the University of California and founded a biotech company to research treatments for stroke and acute injury. He served many years as a volunteer fire fighter and EMT.

Van is currently seeking to serve the public again as the U.S. Congressman for Tennessee’s 3rd Congressional District.

Please be sure to note Ten Buck Fridays on the donation form:
From a profile piece on The Daily Caller Van Irion explains why he carries a pitchfork to campaign events:
Where Van Irion goes, so does his pitchfork.

The Republican congressional candidate — and avid Tea Party supporter — running for east Tennessee’s 3rd District seat keeps the farm tool at his side, whether he’s giving speeches or glad handling constituents, as a reminder of what his candidacy is about. Irion, 42, practices civil law in Knoxville and is hardly a Tennessee farmer, but he said his campaign prop “represents the angry mob.”

“In these parts farmers use pitchforks to clean their manure out of their stalls,” he explained during an interview with The Daily Caller. “And I tell people everywhere I go that I’m gonna take the pitchfork to the House floor and clean the manure out of the Capitol.”
Anyone willing to clean the manure out of the Capitol and bring a lawsuit against ObamaCare has my support.

  1. Please nominate Patricia Sullivan, Conservative Republican, for Congress in the 8th Congressional District, Fl.for Ten Buck Fridays. The seat is currently held by Alan Grayson. Patricia, being the only Republican to qualify for the ballot by petition and a real peoples grass roots candidate is the one to beat him. To do so she needs all the financial support your contacts can muster in order to make her message heard. Can you help??

    Thank You,
