Fiorina Allies and the Los Angeles Times Try to Dick Blumenthal Chuck DeVore
Today in California, we’re seeing how desperate the NRSC’s handpicked candidate, Carly Fiorina, really is. Despite massive monetary advantages in her campaign, mostly thanks to writing herself checks and getting the blessing from the NRSC’s Rob Jesmer and his ilk, she still performs worse than Chuck DeVore against Barbara Boxer, and she’s lost the momentum in the race. So in a last ditch effort to | Read More »
Putting This ‘Dropping Out’ Business In Perspective
“No matter her money, no matter her claims that Chuck is the spoiler, and no matter her endorsements, Carly Fiorina will not be the next United States Senator from California” I think we need a time out on the whole issue of who should drop out in California. The objective fact is that Carly Fiorina cannot seal the deal with conservatives in California. Because of | Read More »
Carly Fiorina Publicly Attacks a Military Reservist
It is one thing to have no shame and quite another to have no class. Carly Fiorina apparently has neither. Just a short time ago, Carly was going around making some truly disparaging remarks about Sarah Palin, but she sure was willing and quick to embrace Palin’s endorsement. No shame. Now she is out attacking a military reservist, disparaging his service. See, in California people | Read More »
It is Not Chuck DeVore Who Must Drop Out. Carly Fiorina Must Go.
“A conservative whose first name starts with a “C” can win the primary and beat Barbra Boxer. But that person is not named Carly. Rather that person is named Chuck.” The myth in the California Senate race is that Tom Campbell has corralled the moderate/left votes, and Carly Fiorina and Chuck DeVore are splitting the conservative vote between them. In this myth, DeVore, as the | Read More »
So Wait A Second! DeVore Polls Better Against Boxer Than Fiorina, But We’re Supposed to go With Carly?!?!
Somewhere along the way someone forgot one of the chief rules of politics: win the general election. We have been so focused on primaries, we’re forgetting that the endgame is victory in November not [insert your primary date here]. I remember in one of the campaign books James Carville and Paul Begala wrote that was actually very good (complete with a great pancake recipe), they | Read More »
California Pro-Life Council Owes Chuck DeVore and Me an Apology
Maybe it is their lack of reading comprehension that led the California Pro-Life Council to endorse Carly Fiorina over Chuck DeVore. DeVore has a strong pro-life record. Fiorina does not. But they’ve gone too far now with this email: The conservative leader of Red State web-site has now asked Devore to please consider stepping down in order to stop the splitting of the pro-life vote | Read More »
On Chuck DeVore and Polling
Much is being made by this comment I made on CNN tonight. I stand by it. But don’t let it distract you from the fact that I also stand by Chuck DeVore. What I said and what I meant is that the election is four weeks away in California. In two more weeks I’ll check again and see what the polling shows. I believe Tom | Read More »
I’m staying with Chuck DeVore
I appreciate Sarah Palin. I know sometimes you read that I’m somehow a critic of Palin’s, but truth be told, I love the lady. You can say all day that she doesn’t have the “intellectual curiosity” to be President — which is to Palin as “Cheney’s gravitas” was to Bush — but you cannot deny this woman is fundamentally conservative, Christian, and would be a | Read More »
Your Call: Will Moderates Take Over?
I want and need you to pay serious attention to this. The Los Angeles Times is running a story today about the rising tide of moderates sweeping into the GOP. This will only happen if you let it. Rep. Michael N. Castle, one of the most liberal Republicans in the House, is heavily favored to win an open Senate seat in Delaware. Rep. Mark Steven | Read More »
Despite Claiming Otherwise, the NRSC Endorses Carly Fiorina
I realize we’re playing adolescent word games with the NRSC when it comes to Carly Fiorina. Just last week, John Cornyn said the NRSC would not be endorsing anyone, including Carly Fiorina. Reconciling that with the fact that the NRSC is entering into a joint fundraising venture with Fiorina is impossible. The NRSC and the Fiorina campaign joined forces to form the Fiorina Victory Committee, | Read More »
DeVore for California
Carly Fiorina gave a very good Republican response today on health care. It cannot be denied. I am glad she is on our side. I do not dislike Carly Fiorina. I don’t really know her, though we’ve met a couple times. She seems like a very nice person. One day I’m sure she will be an excellent elected or appointed official. Today is not that | Read More »
The Fighting Four — Countdown to the End of the Quarter
Unless you are on RSS, you should see the widget below to give to Michael Williams, Marco Rubio, Pat Toomey, and Chuck Devore. if you don’t see the widget, well, then, you are out of luck, but you should still give.
15 Days and We’re Not Meeting the Goal
No sense in being coy about it. We’re not meeting our goal. In fact, the fundraising for these four sucks. I know cash is tight, but unless conservatives are willing to step up to the plate, we’re not going to get these guys elected and, frankly, the establishment of the Republican Party will keep ignoring us. Let’s be honest. One of the reasons the left | Read More »
15 Days For the Conservative Fighting Four
Have you given yet? Imagine a world where Marco Rubio, Chuck Devore, Pat Toomey, and Michael Williams work together in the Senate with Jim DeMint and Tom Coburn. Imagine a world where they push the GOP to the right in the Senate and stop the culture of capitulation. Give what you can. Embed this same widget on your website. Let’s raise them some money.
Supporting the Conservative Fighting Four
I won’t call this the “screw the NRSC” fundraiser, but I’m sorely tempted. Each of you has a favorite Senate candidate this cycle. Here are four guys we want to see in the Senate. Let’s try to raise them $250,000.00 in the next 20 days. Click on the guy you like, learn a little about him, and give him some money. Together, we can move | Read More »
On the NRSC Memo: What About Florida and Texas. And Fiorina?
I don’t know a single Republican leaning blog that got tipped off about Senator John Cornyn’s memo to the Senate Republican Conference. Brian Walsh from the NRSC just emailed to let me know he had, in fact, emailed me earlier today with a copy of the email. For reasons unbeknownst to either of us, I got one responding to the Devore press release, but no | Read More »
There is a rumor in Washington that Senator John Cornyn is desperately trying to get Insurance Commissioner Steve Poizner to jump into the California Senate race against Chuck Devore in the GOP Primary. Poizner is running for Governor currently. Right now, the only Republican in the race is Chuck Devore. He is battling Mrs. “Ma’am” Boxer, the little lady who likes to be called Senator | Read More »
Chuck Devore’s Mission
CHECK OUT www.chuckdevore.com Late last week, I interviewed Chuck Devore, a California Assemblyman representing Orange County. Mr. Devore intends to challenge Barbara Boxer in 2010 for the United States Senate. He is an interesting candidate and a compelling choice for Republicans to embrace early. Devore represents the Republican bastion of Orange County that, demographically, is slowly turning from red to blue. Despite the demographic change, | Read More »
