Comstock is a Trump-hating RINO slime.
She deserves to lose bigly, to teach the rest of these Republican Trump-haters a lesson.

By the way, Shak Hill, who is a great conservative, is NOT a fighter pilot. He was a transport pilot. He needs to clear that up before the Dems call him a liar.

From his Bio.

American Made, Combat Tested
Former Fighter Pilot Running for Congress
Shak at the US Air Force Academy

After high school, Shak graduated from the United States Air Force Academy and became a decorated pilot flying combat missions in Desert Storm and missions all over the world. Because of his exceptional flying skill and drive for education, Shak was invited back to the Academy with his first By-Name request to be an instructor pilot. Shak concluded his career with an unprecedented second By-Name request to the Presidential Wing, Andrews Air Force Base, MD, where he finished as one of only two flight commanders in the 457th Airlift Squadron.

The ad read “Decorated Combat Pilot.” Not “Decorated Fighter Pilot.”

Fighter pilots have ego issues with it, but the truth of the matter is that transport aircrews do go in harm’s way. Fighter pilots have ego issues with most everybody and everything.

I worked with Shak a few years ago. If I recall correctly, he flew KC-135 refueling planes during Desert Storm. Great guy. I’d vote for him if I lived there.
