Former government scientist JJ Walcutt takes her U.S. presidential campaign to Iowa
(Thurs., Dec. 19, 2020) Sioux City — This year’s democratic presidential primary has seen an enormous crowd and yet an equally large number of candidates drop out. JJ Walcutt, a darkhorse candidate from the executive branch, has remained and is now moving to northwest Iowa to campaign.
“We’ve decided to go after the 1%—the point where the media recognizes messages being brought to the table,” says Walcutt. “We want the front runners to hear and the nation to know that solutions to our toughest problems do exist. And we do not need to spend more money nor do we need to reinvent the wheel. We need to better connect the dots—we need to combine current pilot programs, government programs, and ideas across the nation and coordinate these efforts to create scalable, sustainable improvements for our nation. If we don’t, our future is seriously in jeopardy.”
Walcutt is a former civilian government-military scientist who has worked across departments, represented the U.S. overseas, and reported to the Pentagon. Frustrated by the candidates and knowing the government has more to offer citizens, she left her position in search of sanity, solutions and hopefully unity.

Walcutt has spent the past six months conducting a 50-state tour with one central message: We have all the money, ideas, capabilities, and communities to solve our national issues; we just have to work together to achieve them. She interviewed thought leaders, innovators, business elites, community leaders, and every-day citizens to show Americans how we can make this country work without spending more taxpayer dollars.
“Many Americans serve in the shadows,” says Walcutt. “I’m aiming to shine a spotlight on their success because ultimately, it’s what will allow our nation to not just survive but thrive throughout the 21st century!”
