CD 10 Republican Willie Montague Hosts ‘Uncensored America’ Roundtable
Seeking attention in tandem with CPAC in Orlando, the Republican candidate for Congress Willie Montague organizes a fundraiser with a national roundtable of black conservatives dubbed “Uncensored America”.
Fundraising is hosted Saturday night at a downtown Orlando restaurant by Montague’s campaign for the open seat in Florida’s 10th congressional district.
The fundraiser, featuring a 14-speaker roundtable, will take place concurrently with the CPAC Florida 2022 conference at Rosen Shingle Creek. Tickets for Montague’s event range from $35 for live access to $2,000 for major sponsors.
“As conservatives, we support CPAC but also want to create a platform for black conservatives to speak up to define for ourselves,” Montague said in a statement about the event. “This is what uncensored America is. It’s also why I’m running for office, I’m a community man who’s seen the Democrats take over our cities and destroy our people. In 2022 we’ll say on the left that she no longer speaks for us.
The event begins at 5 p.m. with a meeting at Osphere Neighborhood Grill & Bar in Orlando. The roundtable will take place from 6 to 8 p.m., with an afterparty at 9 p.m.
Among the speakers:
— Kimberly Klaicka former congressional candidate from Maryland who founded red resistor;
— Joe Collins IIIKABC’s radio show host”New Black Republicansand a current candidate for Congress in California;
— Shemeka Michellesupport and politics author and speaker of Durham, North Carolina;
— Angela Staton Kingauthor and former Georgia congressional candidate, founder and president of the American King’s Foundation;
— Rev. Leon BenjaminSenior Pastor and Bishop of New Life Harvest Church in Richmond, Virginia, and Founder and President of Virginians for America First.
Montague is in a crowded field this year for the open seat of what will be a redesigned CD 10. Among the other Republican candidates are William King, Troy Rambaransingh, Angela Walls-Windhauser, Stone Weed and Calvin Wimbish.
Montague ran unsuccessfully for the Republican nomination in 2020.
CD 10 currently covers western Orange County, although redistricting may extend it through northern Orange County instead. Either way, it’s likely to contain Orlando’s largest black communities and have a strong Democratic voter base in the 2022 general election.
Incumbent Democratic Representative. Val Demings running for the Senate instead of being re-elected.
“For decades, the left has claimed a monopoly on the black vote. This is despite the left’s counterculture agenda,” Montague said. “The reality is that the traditional black family has values and principles that align with the conservative movement. We are not for critical race theory, critical gender theory, and we are not anti-police either. We are not atheistic communist sympathizers; we are a people full of faith.
