I’m Mike Rakebrandt and I’m running to unseat Andrew Garbarino in the 2nd Congressional District of New York.

Like many of you, I was upset with Andrew Garbarino’s reckless decision to support Biden’s $1.2 trillion dollar "Infrastructure Bill.” This betrayal goes against the Republican and Conservative platforms that got him elected in the first place. 

Unfortunately, Garbarino has a history of betraying us in the short time he has been in Congress. From his vote to not oppose the Certification of the 2020 presidential election – ignoring the more than 100 representatives from Arizona, Wisconsin, Michigan, Pennsylvania, and Georgia to provide at least 10 more days so they could investigate the discrepancies – to his support of the partisan witch hunt that is the January 6 Commission, wherein he defied GOP leadership and President Trump, Garbarino has proven himself to be a RINO. His continued defense of his voting record shows just how tone-deaf and out-of-step he is with his constituents and the party as a whole. 

The Real Andrew Garbarino:

Andrew is a first term congressman representing NY District 2, and has consistently supported far left policies, bills, and ideals while campaigning as a Republican. His voting record has been rated as 94.4% more Liberal (The Heritage Foundation) than every other house Republican, including Liz Cheney and he is only in his first term! Here are some of his BAD votes: 

-HR1603 – Farm workforce modernization act-provides amnesty for illegal farm workers.

-HR1868 – Prevents budget cuts and reworks to remedy fraud/waste with Medicare/Medicaid.

-HR1195 – “Deputizes” employees of hospitals and other facilities to deal with security/threat issues endangering them and clients/customers needlessly.

-HR3233 – January 6th Partisan witch hunt enabling the targeting of opposing party members and candidates, extra judicial persecution is a hallmark of                           banana republics and tyrannical regimes.

-HR2467 – Part of the climate change push that does nothing to actually address environmental issues.

-HR5305 – Extended Government funding, his vote undermined GOP bargaining position and resulted in President Trump calling for him to be “Primaried”                       along with 13 other RINOs.

-HR4350 – National Defense Spending Act, this version contained “Red flag” laws which are unconstitutional attacks on our 2A rights.

-HR550 – Creates Federal Vaccine database in violation of right to privacy/HIPAA laws and sets the policy in place to exclude “unvaxxed” from society.

-HR3684 – Infrastructure Bill which is in large part what drove the current inflation crisis by allocating trillions of our tax dollars to unaccountable                                       bureaucrats and organizations working to strip away our rights and prosperity.

-HR5331 – Co-sponsored and will allow biological males entrance to female bathrooms/locker rooms and further reinforces indoctrination efforts of far left                      activists.

-HRES243 – Voted against removing Eric Swalwell from the House INTEL Committee after it was discovered he was compromised by a CCP spy (Fang                             Fang).

Furthermore, upon landing in Congress he signed onto an agreement to work with and support far left policies. In addition, it has been documented that he has met with lobbyists working on behalf of China. He is not Conservative, MAGA, or even Republican, but one of the biggest RINOs in Congress today!

Mike Rakebrandt is an America First conservative and a President Trump supporter with an eye towards common sense solutions and policy.
