U.S. Congressional candidate Wade Brown visits Mineral Wells



With early voting well underway and the Primary Election on March 4, candidates are coming up on the final push for votes. Thursday night, U.S. Congressional candidate Wade Brown made a special stop at Mesquite Pit in Mineral Wells.

Brown is running for the second time against five-term incumbent Congressman K. Michael Conway in the 2014 Republican Primary.

Brown is a native Texan and resident of May. He is a Marine Corps veteran and a family man who has been married to his wife, Sarah, for 22 years, and is a father of four – Samuel, Abigail, Clara and Oliver. Brown said his faith an exponential part of his character.

“I am a Christian,” Brown said on his website. “I am not a pastor or minister or evangelist; I am not presently called to these offices. However, my faith in God, my belief in Jesus and my reliance on the Holy Spirit are real and fundamental elements of my life. Whatever good others may see in me can be traced to my Creator and Redeemer; my faults are my own.”

Brown also considers himself a Constitutional Conservative and has military and collegiate education.

One of Brown’s main concerns is the national debt, which he believes is one of the biggest threats facing the U.S.

“We have $17.3 trillion of national debt right now, and our unfunded liabilities are increasing by over $100,000 per second,” Brown said. “My youngest child is a 9-year-old boy, and by the time he graduates from school, he’s going to be $7.9 trillion more in debt than he is right now – that’s our country.”

Brown went on to describe the national debt as an unsustainable entity that is unacceptable.

The other key issue Brown believes is unacceptable is his perceived lack of accountability imposed on President Barack Obama.

Our current president has been getting bolder and bolder about exceeding the limitations of his own office,” Brown said.
