Chris Pappas, a thorough disgrace for his 'collusion' with Democrat witch hunters salivating to bring down Our President and obstruct the administration of government. Deserves to be impeached, along with his entire Democrat cohort.

You do not help yourself by not getting information out to the voters beyond TV commercials which few actually listen to. Your position being clearly known on the variety of topics is very important for this upcoming election. Speak your position!
