Sen. Anthony Bouchard, R-Cheyenne, is making one of his first out-of-state appearances for his congressional campaign this weekend at an “America First” rally in Florida.
Besides Bouchard, the other guests at the rally will include Virginia Republican gubernatorial candidate Amanda Chase, Republican Florida House of Representatives candidate Drew-Montez Clark and U.S. Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene, R-Georgia.
The rally will be held Saturday morning and suggested donations to attend are $10.
Bouchard’s campaign spokeswoman April Poley told Cowboy State Daily on Wednesday that Bouchard accepted the invitation to the rally because he was already going to be in Florida over the weekend.
“He will already be in Florida this weekend for other events and accepted the invitation to this event as it is not too far from where he will otherwise be,” Poley said.
Like Bouchard, Greene is a staunch supporter of former President Donald Trump and supported his claims that he actually won the presidential election last fall.
She is a fairly new representative, taking office just three days before the storming of the U.S. Capitol earlier this year.
Chase is a Virginia state senator and the first female Republican gubernatorial candidate the state has ever seen. She supported the Capitol rioters by calling them patriots and suggesting Trump might still have the chance to be sworn in.
She has also spoke of “deep state” conspiracy theories, not unlike Greene, who has regularly voiced her suspicion about some mass shootings and questioned the official accounts of the attack on the World Trade Centers and Pentagon on Sept. 11, 2001.
Clark ran for the Florida House last year, but lost in the primary.
Bouchard announced his campaign for Congress earlier this year following U.S. Rep. Liz Cheney’s vote to impeach Trump for the role he allegedly played in inciting the attack on the Capitol.
