Statement on President Trump’s Pardon of The Hammonds


I appreciate President Trump’s pardon of Dwight and Steven Hammond. Despite federal Judge Michael Hogan arguing that a five year minimum sentence would be excessive, the previous administration’s Department of Justice used an anti-terrorism law to prosecute the ranchers, ultimately winning an appeal which sent the Hammonds to jail for the full five year sentence. This was unjust — and to many in rural western communities — further proof of the federal government’s hostility to ranchers, farmers, and landowners. Thank you President Trump for rectifying this injustice.

Help us fight the desperate attacks


Friends,

We are just ONE WEEK away from Primary Election Day!

My opponents can’t match my record of standing up for Idaho families and against government overreach, so with just a few days remaining in the race, they have resorted to slinging mud in a desperate attempt to fool voters about my record.

We’re fighting back with the Fulcher Fact/Check Fund. Your contribution to the fund will help us fight back against the smears and distortions from our opponents.

Conservatives like Congressman Raul Labrador, Senator Ted Cruz, and Trump Deputy Campaign Manager David Bossie have already endorsed our campaign, but we need to make sure voters in our district don’t buy into the distortions about my record.

The finish line is in sight, and we’re excited at the growing momentum our campaign is seeing. Your support today will bring us closer to Election Day victory.

Sincerely,

Russ Fulcher

Meridian, ID – Melaleuca CEO and co-founder Frank VanderSloot and his wife Belinda released a statement Tuesday announcing their endorsement of Republican Russ Fulcher for Congress. The VanderSloots are long-time supporters of Republican causes in Idaho and nationwide, and renowned philanthropists.

“After a careful review of all of the candidates running for Idaho’s First Congressional District (both Republican and Democrat), Belinda and I are enthusiastically endorsing Russ Fulcher,” said VanderSloot. “There are several high quality candidates running this year, but I feel that Russ Fulcher is the most qualified to be the next Representative in Congress for Idaho. Russ has the leadership experience in business and state government that makes him uniquely qualified to represent Idahoans in Washington DC. He is a wise and practical conservative and a very hard worker. He is a strong leader, but listens to others. He is a unifier, not a divider. I have been impressed with his solid commitment to always doing the right thing. Belinda and I are pleased to offer him our full support.”

“I am grateful and humbled to have the endorsement of the VanderSloots,” said Fulcher. “As entrepreneurs they have created thousands of Idaho jobs and put millions into philanthropic endeavors in our state — including the funding of a charter school in Idaho Falls. The VanderSloots are a prime example of the fabric that gives Idaho its strength. I’m honored to have their support in my race for Congress.”

Right To Life of Idaho Commends Russ Fulcher On Strong Pro-Life Record


Right to Life of Idaho would like to commend Russ Fulcher for his strong pro-life record. During his nine years as State Senator in the Idaho State Legislature, Russ was uncompromising in his stand for the sanctity of human life as a supporter and frequent sponsor of pro-life legislation. Russ has been a tireless advocate for the unborn, disabled, and elderly as his record shows.

When I first began lobbying for Right to Life of Idaho over a decade ago, I discovered that there were many legislators who were pro-life in principle but only a small number willing to carry pro-life legislation and shoulder the potential controversy and political fallout. Russ was always a ball carrier—someone who would take the ball and become a target for the sake of the team. Right to Life of Idaho would like to express our sincere gratitude and respect for Russ Fulcher and his work as a voice for the voiceless.

To Life!

No More Budgets Like This


Folks, I’ve gotta tell you something.

Watching some members of my party vote for a budget that further imperils our nation’s economic security was incredibly disappointing.

My concern about our federal government’s addiction to spending is one of the main reasons I joined the race for Congress. As Republicans, we cannot continue to be complicit in increasing our nation’s debt.

As your Congressman, I won’t bow to leadership or special interest pressures and vote for a bill like this.

But more than just being against something, I will bring conservative solutions to Congress, just like I did in the state legislature.

As your state senator, I sponsored and passed the largest tax cut in Idaho history. As we approach Saturday’s fundraising deadline, it is more important than ever that our campaign lets voters know that I will protect our hard-earned money.

I will work with any member of Congress that shares my concern about our government’s spending problem. We will create a budget that supports our military and border security, but not risk our children’s future by spending taxpayer dollars for things like Chuck Shumer’s subway train or Planned Parenthood.

Thank you for standing with me. Our nation’s future, and that of our children, is at stake.

Sincerely,
