Former Arkansas Governor Mike Huckabee and Huck PAC has endorsed former campaign aide and hunting companion Myers Mermel of Manchester for U.S. Senate in Vermont. In offering his endorsement, Governor Huckabee cited Mermel’s commitment to fighting high taxes, inflation, high gasoline prices, and high food prices.

“I am pleased to endorse Myers Mermel for the U.S. Senate in Vermont. I have known Myers for fourteen years. He worked on my 2008 campaign, and we even took a trade trip to Japan together to meet with Prime Minister Shinzo Abe. He is the only conservative I have endorsed in New England so far this cycle because he is the only conservative capable of beating the Democrat party there. He is the clear conservative choice in Vermont.”

“As one who had to run in a state dominated by Democrats – 91% of elected officials in Arkansas were Democrats when I ran – I know that you need to run with innovative ideas and be a different kind of conservative that focuses on solving real problems. Myers can be trusted to do this. He is a new kind of conservative.”

“I ask that all conservatives unite behind Myers because he is our only chance to defeat Peter Welch and his ultra-liberal democrat policies. We cannot afford to split the conservative vote in the primary, nor can we afford to vote for liberal Republicans who will not advance our values. We need to vote to stand squarely behind Myers in the primary so he can take the fight to Peter Welch and win. Myers has the intellect, wisdom and experience needed to be a great Senator.”

“Myers is a strong defender of the Second Amendment for all Vermonters. I know this from the times we have hunted ducks together. Myers is also a strong supporter of law enforcement and will ensure resources are available for them to hire more officers and continue to keep Vermonters safe in the face of rising crime and the removal of resources from the police.”

“Governor Mike Huckabee embodies the conservative principles and values that I have defended over my lifetime,” said Myers Mermel. “In my campaign and if I am elected to be Vermont’s next Senator, I will continue to challenge failed liberal policies which have brought us severe inflation, excessive federal debt, crushing federal regulations, and a likely recession. I will limit the size and scope of government spending, while offering solutions to make Vermont a job creator not a job exporter. I’m grateful for Governor Huckabee’s support and for his efforts in fighting back against an ever-expanding federal government and its inflationary spending.”

Myers Mermel received a Bachelor of Arts from the University of Vermont, a Master of Arts in American History from Columbia University, and a Master of Divinity from Yale University. He has had a thirty-five-year career in commercial real estate finance and banking. For more information on Myers Mermel and his campaign for Senate, visit www.myersmermel.com

  1. What I see in his issues list : Many items that concern us all but , the fix according to Myers: hundreds of millions of MORE Federal and State spending. HUndreds of millions coming from YOU , the working people. Does anyone ELSE think that spending what you DONT have is a good idea?? We are TRILLIONS in debt with no end in sight. Think before you vote. REALLY.

    From his site”You may not be aware, but in March the Senate passed a bill, the COMPETES Act, already approved by the House which provides $52 billion in funding to support the manufacture of semiconductor chips in America. “…THAT is not OUR job. It’s the JOB of the Semi manufacturers.

    52 BILLION plus another 40-50 BILLION to Ukraine ( with little to no accountability)

    No thank you.

    • Christina Nolan enjoyed her prior position as USAO-VT thanks to Patrick Leahy. She’s given no indication that she will vote any different than Leahy or Welch. Under Leahy the US deficit per capita grew from $2.2k to $91k or a $475B deficit in 1974 to $30T today.
      And, to make it worse, in Vermont, we have nothing to show for it. While Myers abhors this grotesque deficit growth, we in Vermont should get our “fair share” as liberals are fond of saying.

      Malloy is a man of honor and respect in all conservative traditions but history shows absent the new ideas and broader appeal to conservative democrats and independents Myers has, Mr. Malloy, like others before him, will be stuck below 30% in the general. A red wave is building, you can sense it, and Myers Mermel is the right man to represent common sense and innovative conservatism.

    • You can’t do the job…if you can’t win the election. I admire Malloy for his military service, but he’s not the most qualified candidate in the race, and he can’t win a Statewide race. Neither can Mermel.

  2. As an old hand, who has been around, both Montpelier, and Washington, I endorse Mermel. I always admired Mike Huckabee, as a man of honor, and of sound judgement, so he,in endorsing Mermel, is good enough for me. We do not need another liberaltard in Washington…the place is overrun with enough of them already. Vote all leftists out in every office, across the land. Enough of un-American policies. Think about that the next time you go shopping for food, for the family, or gas up your rig. It is the liberals, and leftists, in office, that allowed rampant inflation, and failed policies, to happen. VOTE THEM OUT FOREVER!

    • With all due respect, Huckabee endorsed Myers Mermel, not Malloy, as Memel is significantly more qualified to be Senator. While I’m grateful to Mr. Malloy’s service to this Nation, he is out of touch with Vermonters and Americans on many issues, and would never get even 20% of the vote. One needs only to watch his performance in the recent VPR debate, and consider some of his responses to realize this. Mermel didn’t vote for, nor did he endorse the profligate spending by the current administration, but given that it has been legislated, why not go after some of it on behalf of the state of Vermont?! That is largely the role of a senator, getting what they can for the state they represent. Not that the current representation has come close to fulfilling that role. Nolan is weak on just about everything, and is literally running in the wrong party. She hides behind a contrived, and weak excuse for not disclosing who she supported in previous elections. Voters have a right to know this information, and there is absolutely no harm to come from disclosing it. She simply doesn’t have strength of character to stand on her decisions. The only thing she’s trying to campaign on is her most recent appointment, at which she failed miserably.
