A new generation of conservative leaders is emerging. Some–not all, but many–have been tested in the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq. Minnesota’s Pete Hegseth is in this category. Pete is from Forest Lake, Minnesota. He is a Princeton graduate and a much-decorated Army officer. He returned from Afghanistan to Minnesota just in time to mount a whirlwind campaign for the Senate seat now held by Amy Klobuchar, a dull and stereotypically liberal Democratic machine politician. On Friday, the GOP convention begins; Pete is competing for the Senate nomination against two other candidates who are good guys but who don’t have the same potential to run a competitive race or to be leaders of the conservative movement for years to come. I recorded this endorsement of Pete, which his campaign put up on YouTube:
