We were driving through Travelers Rest, South Carolina last week when we saw this.
The Complementary Spouse snapped this quick picture through the windshield of our truck at a stop light.
It seems that a Michael LaPierre is running as a conservative Republican for Congress in the Upstate of SC. He had previously run in the Republican primary in 2020 against Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC). LaPierre founded and heads the Christian Leadership Worldview International organization which offers Christian leadership training.
The seat that LaPierre is seeking has been held in past by Jim DeMint and Trey Gowdy. It is currently held by Rep. William Timmons who I presume will seek re-election.
I do not know if there is any familial relationship between this LaPierre and the one running the NRA. That said, this LaPierre is at least for constitutional carry. I think it is safe to say that Michael LaPierre, age 60, is not the unknown love child of Wayne LaPierre.
