Teichert on the Trail

Welcome to Teichert on the Trail, our weekly email highlighting the latest news and events from the campaign as retired Air Force Brigadier General John Teichert crisscrosses the state to earn the hearts, minds, and votes of Marylanders in the race to be their next U.S. Senator. He is a leader and not just another politician!

Teichert in the News

On Friday, General John Teichert responded to the news that former governor Larry Hogan had jumped into the race for the U.S. Senate. You can read John’s full statement above.

On Sunday, General Teichert joined Fox And Friends to discuss the U.S. retaliation strikes in the Middle East over the weekend. Addressing America’s deterrence strategy thus far, the General stated, “If we would have done this after the first attack against American positions instead of the 170th attack, then we would actually be credible in our deterrent posture. It’s far more difficult to regain deterrence in the mind of an adversary than it is to retain it, and now we’re playing catchup after weakness for the last four months or really the last 3 years. And the hope is that finally, they’re starting to believe that America will stand up for our positions- but it’s unlikely that they’ll actually believe it until we show consistency.”

John Teichert joined O’Connor and Company on Friday to discuss developing tensions in the Middle East and his bid for U.S. Senate in Maryland. Explaining how he plans to win the valuable votes of Marylanders, Teichert stated, “I’m running towards conservative solutions, conservative principles, and values. As I talk to people in inner-city Baltimore, or Prince George’s County or Somerset County, or Garrett County, I’m talking about those four big issues that they care about and how they have been struggling because of liberal policies, and that conservatives have the answer to those problems.”

General Teichert joined Fox45 on Friday to address Iranian-subsidized drone attacks against U.S. positions in the Middle East. When asked how to effectively deter Iran, the General responded in part, “Three Americans have been killed, and frankly it was inevitable, because we have been absorbing these attacks for the last four months, and only responding with pinprick attacks. And it’s time to attack something of relevance and significance to the Iranian military- likely in Syria- that will send them the message that America is back with strength, capability, will, and resolve that can restore deterrence.”

John Teichert joined NewsNation on Monday to discuss the impending threat of China’s rapidly- increasing nuclear arsenal. General Teichert explained in part, “The concern isn’t just that they will launch a nuclear strike against the United States, but the phrase ‘intimidate’ is so important. That maybe in our minds, if they conventionally attack Taiwan, we would be dissuaded from engaging or supporting Taiwan because we could be worried that ultimately that would trip a threshold or a red line and would cause the Chinese to attack us with nuclear capability.”
