Independent candidate Nathan Lewis qualifies for November election for US Congress

Lewis seeks to be first Independent elected to Congress from Texas since 1883. Likely to be only candidate running against the incumbent Jodey Arrington.

Online PR News – 09-September-2022 – Lubbock, TX – Nathan Lewis qualified for the upcoming November 8th, 2022, General Election as an Independent candidate by successfully amassing the necessary petition signatures and filing them with the Texas Secretary of State’s office before the June 23rd deadline. Barring a last-minute write-in candidacy, and with no Democrat, Libertarian, Green or other candidates filing this year, Lewis will be the only challenger to incumbent Congressman Jodey Arrington.

Lewis, 46, grew up on a cattle ranch in Southwest Nebraska and was part of a graduating class of 12. He attended the University of Nebraska-Lincoln for six years studying Electrical Engineering, among other subjects, and interned nine-months at Cooper Nuclear Station near Brownville, NE. After coming to Lubbock in 2006, Lewis worked at the South Plains Food Bank Garden and Apple Orchard for 11 years, while implementing his own small scale solar setup and trialing local growing methods and other sustainable practices. Since leaving the Food Bank, Lewis has focused most of his attention on politics.

Lewis believes there are answers to get beyond the us vs them, Democrat vs Republican framing of every political debate. More and more people call themselves Independent rather than Democrat or Republican. The latest Gallup poll shows 43% of Americans consider themselves Independent compared to 27% for the two major parties. Both George Washington and John Adams warned about the two-party system. Adams stated, “a division of the republic into two great parties … is to be dreaded as the great political evil.”

The last time an Independent candidate won a race for Congress anywhere in Texas was 1883. Lewis promises extreme transparency and consistent honesty, communication, and humility.
