Should Tim Tebow Run for Congress? Could Be Good Idea – If Tebow Would Join Freedom Caucus!

All my readers know about my admiration for Tim Tebow (Even though he turned down the Crimson Tide for the Florida Gators – but hey nobody’s perfect!)

Check out this report from Christine Rousselle at Townhall:

Former Heisman Trophy winner Tim Tebow is reportedly being eyed for a Congressional run, the Washington Examiner is reporting. After Rep. Ander Crenshaw, who represented Florida’s Fourth Congressional District unexpectedly announced his retirement, some were quick to speculate about a potential Tebow candidacy.

Personally, I’m torn about this idea. Tebow certainly has good character and solid values, but I’m not sure he’s ready for Congress just yet. It’s interesting to note that if he were elected, he’d be the youngest member of Congress by about two years.

I think Tebow would bring some needed integrity and personal drive and discipline to Congress, an institution that sorely needs it.  Could he stand up to Speaker Ryan?  Well, if he said no to this girl right here, I think he’d have the integrity and strength of character to say no to useless spending and futile compromises that just leave it for President Obama and his allies to win the field.

I want to encourage Tebow to consider the run but he needs to answer these questions:

  • Would Congressman Tim Tebow join the Freedom Caucus?
  • Would Tebow help our [now former!] Congressman Dr. Dave Brat to get out economic house in order?

If the answer is YES to both – I’ll help him.  Anyone in the US can donate money to any congressional candidate in any district.
