Eli Crane is a fighter.
He spent 13 years serving our country in the Navy, including as a member of SEAL Team 3. Next, he started a business out of his garage selling custom-made bottle openers with his wife, Jen. Bottle Breacher has become so successful, Forbes ranked it one of the top veteran-owned businesses in the nation.
Now, Eli Crane is running for Congress.
Eli launched his bid in AZ-01 last week and here at FP1, we are very excited to be a part of his team. We created an announcement video that highlights Eli’s courage and determination to take on the career politicians in Washington and deliver results for the American people. Most notably, the ad features Eli getting a new tattoo on his right arm that reads, “We the People.” This three-letter phrase perfectly encompasses why Eli Crane is running for Congress. He is not a self-serving politician. Eli has skin in the game. As a Navy SEAL, business owner and father, his whole life has been about service, family and community. From securing our border to cutting middle-class taxes to protecting the integrity of our elections, Eli Crane is ready to fight for everyday Americans and give power back to the people.
Eli’s patriotism and grit displayed in our announcement video made an immediate impression. In an interview on Fox News, Sean Hannity described the Crane video as the “coolest” candidate ad he had ever seen.
The Crane announcement video has been viewed over 126,000 times and helped spur a burst of online fundraising. In its first week, the Crane campaign raised over $100,000 from 1,000 online donors. This early buzz is encouraging, but the long journey to Congress has only just begun. While AZ-01 voted for Joe Biden in 2020, Democratic incumbent Tom O’Halleran has served as its representative since 2016 and was narrowly reelected last year. Eli Crane is a dynamic conservative candidate who can flip this seat and help Republicans regain the Majority in the U.S. House of Representatives.
