Who is Brown Dudley?

That’s a question that many conservatives across the Ninth Congressional District have about the man who wants to take on Rep. Steve Cohen (D-TN) in November.

But first, the political newcomer has to face Charlotte Bergmann in the August Republican primary. And that has many voters scrambling to decide which is the better candidate to defeat a far-leftist like Cohen.

Therein, lies the problem for many Republicans who want to know if Dudley is a conservative or a Republican in Name Only.

“I’ve been to your website, I’ve searched the internet, and I’ve read your posts here. I cannot find one location where you actually let us voters know where you stand on the issues. I hear a lot of the same rhetoric that we’ve been hearing from both the democrats and the Republicans for ages, we need to fix crime, we need to fix our education, we need to work together, etc, etc. Nowhere do you tell us how you plan on doing that. I have no idea about your stance on school vouchers, the 2nd Amendment and gun control including red flag laws, or any other major issue,” one frustrated Republican wrote on Dudley’s Facebook page.

It’s a common grievance among many Republicans in the district.

His website offers little in details. On the economy, he says “we must get inflation under control.”

His solution for cracking down on crime? “We need every one of our communities to be safer.”

His solution to the energy crisis is “an energy plan that makes sense for America.”

His website makes no mention of his positions on gun control, abortion or border security.

Dudley raised eyebrows several weeks ago when he posted a video suggesting that he may not be lock step in line with the Republican Party’s platform.

He complained about being “excruciatingly tired of these strict lanes that are imposed by the loudest parts of both sides trying to define what you have to believe in order to be a real Democrat or a real Republican.”

Dudley went onto say that he believes in the Second Amendment and a strong national defense.

“But when did it become fact that as a Republican I can’t be on board with gay rights or have a conversation about social justice or be concerned about climate change or the environment,” he said on the video. “I like breathing clean air.”

Some conservatives said Dudley’s campaign video aligned more with the Democrat Party.

“Disappointing,” wrote one Facebook user. “The pandering shows you aren’t any different than the rest of the politicians. What a shame. I guess there really is no political solution.”

“Clearly this guy thinks you are all stupid, and stupidity is therefore a prerequisite of your support. If you support him you meet all the requirements that enable a swamp agenda,” wrote another.

Others are asking for Dudley to specify what he means by using phrases like climate change and social justice.

“In the instance of rights, regardless of whether you’re discussing sexual orientation, race, or creed, how do you plan on protecting them,” another wrote.

And others wondered how Dudley would vote on issues regarding transgenderism, mandates imposed by “health emergencies” and the fight to secure the southern border.

“No substance there,” one Mid-South conservative wrote on Facebook. “What are his views? Nobody knows him and people want to know what his views are on conservative issues.”

Dudley has been invited numerous times over the campaign season to appear on The Mighty 990 KWAM, but his campaign staff has not responded.
