  1. Steve just endorsed Darren Bailey for Governor, who is facing Richard Irvin in the primary. Irvin is a long time Democrat and is running as a conservative. He has spewed lots of lies against his opponents and is not to be trusted at all. Daren Bailey is a third-generation farmer from Southern Illinois. He is a devout Christian and has started and operated two Christian schools with his wife. See him on Facebook, where he frequently speaks and prays for his followers.

  2. Very impressed with Steve Cortez. Very knowledgeable and highly capable of expressing his views and the views of decent people in America.

  3. Latino arrepentido, pero la raza la lleva en toda la cara, imposible esconderse…A. Navarro lo puso en su lugar anoche, un verdadero impresentable.

  4. Steve is a highly qualified financial expert, I admire his commentaries both political and finance related. People need to understand that not all minorities have to be democrats, we can be Latinos, blacks, etc and also republicans! This is the land of the free.
