2022 America First Candidates against RINOs and Democrats

These are authentic candidates who put America First and are running to remove RINOs/Establishment Republicans and Democrats from office. This list does not include incumbents already in the Senate/Congress. This list does not include RINOs that would be too difficult and expensive to remove, like Dan Crenshaw or Jerry Moran. It also does not include Democrats in deep blue districts, such as Maxine Waters or Ilhan Omar, as that too would be a waste of money.
