Democratic Congress candidate Mark Lindquist has dropped out of Minnesota’s 8th District to run for Ukraine.
Lindquist was the only Democrat in the race, which means he is now among the Republican and Libertarian candidates.
Lindquist wrote in a Facebook post, “Due to world events, I am officially suspending my campaign for the US House of Representatives until further notice.” “It simply came to our notice then. I just feel like I need it the most. “
The former candidate told the Daily Caller that he had no personal ties with Ukraine.
“I will conduct humanitarian missions at the border and if they finally let me go to Territorial Defense, I will take my orders from there,” Lindquist’s Facebook announcement continued. “If you ask me what will happen to my political aspirations in the future, I have no good answer. I don’t know what will happen. I’m heading to a war zone, and no one knows what’s going to happen next. My least concern at the moment is American politics … Some people may not agree with that and that’s fine. You do, I do. “
Lindquist served in the military for six years and was deployed to Afghanistan.
Daily Caller Report:
He worked on his campaign for two years, “but then we found ourselves on the brink of World War III. Sometimes you have to give up everything, ”he said. “Sometimes you can’t do what you want to do when you want to,” he continued.
“I’m pretty sure the United States will still be here next year,” he said, adding that he did not know if we could say the same about Ukraine.
Lindquist is now asking people for money for its “support fund” or Venmo for its GoFundMe, which has raised about $ 4,000.
He told the Liberal Caller that he was “going there wearing an American flag in my uniform. I represent the United States on foreign soil, and I want to give American hope” to those who live in Ukraine.
The race is now between Republican Michelle Fishbach and Libertarian candidate Travis Johnson.
Fishbach won the last election with 53 percent of the vote.
Despite having no ties to the nation, the Democratic Congress candidate has given up the race to fight for Ukraine.
