A Republican grandmother who is running for the Utah State Senate created a “wholesome” rap video promoting her campaign that went incredibly viral on Twitter and was embraced on social media.

Linda Paulson announced her candidacy via the video on YouTube. The smiling grandmother seemed to have a ball in the video. What it lacked in talent it made up for in quaintness.
She started off the rap video dancing while professing her love of “God and family and the Constitution.”
“I tried to get another conservative to run. Nobody could do it. So I’m getting it done,” the grandma proclaimed.
National Review says she has posted a “rap-style video that is a candidate for the most bizarre election ad of the 2022 cycle.”
Paulson is pro-religious freedom, pro-life, pro-police, pro-right to bear arms, and pro-free speech. She is everything a conservative could hope for minus the wannabe rapping.
Wish I was in Utah and vote for Linda Paulson 🇺🇸

She also promoted “supporting traditional family as the fundamental unit of society” in the video in a line sure to trigger leftists. “Just to clarify… as a female adult, I know what a woman is.”
“If you share my values, if you like what I stand for, then give me your vote on the 8th of November,” the candidate urged. “District 12 needs a choice. Let me be your voice.”
“Linda Paulson, Linda Paulson for Senate,” Paulson concluded the video while raising her hands.
The video has been viewed over 82,000 times on Paulson’s YouTube channel. It’s been viewed millions of times on Twitter and is a viral sensation.
Honestly, she’s trying to be fun and wholesome all at the same time, and I’m here for it. If I had any living aunts, I would like them to be like her. I wish her well.

Some were enchanted by the video… others not so much. Many thought it was cringe-worthy and made Republicans look ridiculous. Others thought it was cute and endearing.
“Imagine voting for an adult who actually thought this was a good idea,” one YouTube commenter stated, according to Fox News.
“Her granddaughter played Hamilton in the car once and she said ‘I can do that,'” another person kidded.
“This has to be a joke right? This has to be satire,” a social media user remarked.
More than one on social media thought the video was “wholesome.”

“Aww this is cute. She seems like a nice lady,” DeSantis Rapid Response Director Christina Pushaw tweeted. “I’d vote for her if I lived there.”
Aww this is cute. She seems like a nice lady. I’d vote for her if I lived there.

The video caught the eye of Christian conservative rapper Bryson Gray who had a few suggestions to help her out. He did a remix of the video that he put out on Twitter.
“Linda, I got you,” the rapper told Paulson.
“If you vote for Linda, District 12 gon’ be boomin. So, vote Linda Paulson. Why you stallin’? She gon’ have Utah ballin’,” Gray rapped.

Paulson is running against Democratic incumbent Karen Mayne. She is the minority leader of Utah’s state senate so maybe the rap video was a good idea after all. Utah’s general election will take place on November 8.
