Campaign Update - Anatomy of a Washington, D.C swamp creature
April 26, 2022

Taffy Howard for Congress

Dear Fellow Patriot,

I’m sure you’ve heard of the “Swamp” in Washington, D.C.

You know, the establishment politicians that say just enough to get reelected but are just in it for the power, fame, and fortune they can squeeze out of their position?

Here’s a question…

How do you identify politicians who are part of the Swamp (i.e. a swamp creature)?

One of their defining features is a BAD record on the 2nd Amendment.

And I’m sorry to report that my opponent, Rep. Dusty Johnson, has been flip flopping on our inalienable right to bear arms since he took office!

If we don’t take back this seat, it means we’ll have another swamp creature to watch out for when it comes to our 2nd Amendment rights. And I need your help to do it!

Here’s what I mean…

Firstly, Rep. Johnson has been outspoken about mass shootings, and he sounds a whole lot like a Democrat.

Yes, there is a place to take action on mental health.

But there is NEVER a good reason to trample the Second Amendment or destroy due process.

We can deal with the problems by making sure every American’s right and ability to defend themselves and their communities is NOT infringed.

Johnson, on the other hand, takes the radical left’s approach. He calls for “tougher background checks” and even voted for…

Red Flag Gun Confiscation!

This controversial legislation gives a judge the power to take away a citizen’s right to own guns and even allows law enforcement to forcibly remove their firearms just because a friend or family member says it’s necessary!

That’s a violation of the 2nd AND 4th Amendments!

The bill Johnson voted for allows this to be done to active duty AND retired military members.

And if he isn’t willing to stand strong for the 2nd Amendment rights of our military members who sacrifice so much for us… can you trust him to stand strong for yours?

Me on the other hand?

I stood firmly AGAINST red flag gun confiscation when it was introduced in the South Dakota State Senate.

When it comes to the 2nd Amendment rights of South Dakotans and ALL Americans, I will not back down from the radical left’s gun grabbing tendencies OR the Washington Swamp’s willingness to let your rights slip away.

That’s why I also co-sponsored South Dakota’s Constitutional Carry law and the Second Amendment Preservation Act.

Here’s the bottom line:

I need your help to drain the swamp in Washington DC and kick the swamp creatures out!

Without it, the 2nd Amendment rights that are such a big part of our South Dakota way of life might be destroyed forever.

Can I count on you to vote Taffy Howard for US Congress on June 7th? And will you consider chipping in to our campaign to make sure we can take true South Dakota values to Washington in November?

$5,800 is the legal maximum limit for an individual ($11,600 for couples), and if that’s possible for you, it propels us even further towards a win!

Maybe you could do $2,500, $1,500, or $1,000. Again, that puts us further down the path to victory and draining the swamp!

For many, $500, $250, or $150 is closer to what you could do. If that’s possible for you, I ask you to dig deep and help us ensure your values are represented in Washington.

For many more, a generous contribution of $75 or $50 is what’s possible. Truly, your contribution is well appreciated and will strengthen our campaign.

Maybe $35 or $25 is all you can do today. I am so thankful to the support of South Dakotans across the state!

Whatever you’re able to give, I hope you know one thing…

We cannot let our American values be trampled by politicians and bureaucrats. We MUST drain the swamp! And I need your help today.

Will you show your support for the American values we both cherish by chipping in to our pro-freedom campaign today?

Your support is truly appreciated.


Rep. Taffy Howard
Candidate for U.S. Congress, South Dakota

P.S. The DC Swamp isn’t concerned about many of your rights… especially the 2nd Amendment.

And Rep. Dusty Johnson has shown that he is willing to compromise when it comes to your inalienable right to bear arms. Johnson wasn’t the one who gave you your rights, don’t let him be the one to let them slip away!

Will you help me take true South Dakota values to the US House of Representatives by chipping in to our campaign today before the critical June 7th election?

Thank you for your support of the American values we both cherish.
