CPAC 2011: John Kuzmanich.
John’s the head of the Oregon Tea Party, former Congressional candidate, and may be a possible Congressional candidate again. We talked a little of the state of the state of Oregon (which is better than you’d expect, in practical terms): There’s also some interesting bits on David Wu. Check it out. Moe Lane (crosspost)
CPAC 2011: Sharon Day.
Sharon is a new co-chair of the RNC, and was more than happy to talk about the way that procedures were going to be different than those of the old RNC. …and that’s all for tonight, I think. Moe Lane (crosspost)
CPAC 2011: Mike Lee (R, UT).
Senator Lee is, of course, an old friend of RedState, and happy to check in with us. Annoyingly, the interview was almost interrupted by the presence of the Rent is Too D*mn High guy. What that guy was doing at CPAC remains a mystery: as I recall, the fellow is not precisely conservative. Moe Lane (crosspost)
CPAC 2011: Chris Barron.
Yes. That Chris Barron. Probably one of the trickier interviews I’ll be doing this weekend (I should end up with a bunch, if today was any indication). Moe Lane (crosspost)
Now at CPAC.
I have a few interviews lined up, with hopefully more to come. In the meantime, check out this video. And by “check out” I mean take notes. This is a darn good video, not least because it tells you how to get to the site. And no, I’m not being facetious. You would be surprised to hear how often people forget to give meaningful directions | Read More »
CPAC 2010: Rep Rob Bishop (R, UT-01).
This CPAC interview with Rep. Rob Bishop (R, UT-01) seemed relevant, given the post that I did earlier on the White House gutting 23K space-reliant jobs in a politically-unreliable Democrat’s Congressional District: Rep. Bishop is active in space issues, and in fact went into greater detail recently about why said gutting is ill-advised. The op-ed is well worth reading, if probably not making an argument | Read More »
CPAC 2010: Three minutes with T-Paw.
Governor Tim Pawlenty of Minnesota was swinging through Bloggers’ Row there, so of course we had to chat. Nice guy; very centered. I was trying to think of some way of saying that I’m sorry that my little bit of extra monopolization of the Governor’s time was an inconvenience to a couple of staffers (I know some of those people, after all) without saying I’m | Read More »
Meet Rick Barber (R-CAND, AL-02). [Bumped.]
[UPDATE]: I’m bumping this because I’ve been told that it was Rick’s birthday yesterday. Campaign site here: he’s running for Bobby Bright’s seat. That’s the last CPAC election video that I had today: I have a full slate scheduled for tomorrow, God help me. Crossposted to Moe Lane.
Meet Patricia Sullivan (R CAND, FL-08).
I am almost done with the candidate interviews (I also spoke to a few other sitting politicians and activists) from CPAC: this is Patricia Sullivan, who is running for the privilege of removing Alan Grayson from Congress. Her website is here. Moe Lane Crossposted to Moe Lane.
A quick CPAC sitdown with Michael Williams.
He’s running for the Senate seat that Senator Hutchinson is going to vacate (assuming that she ever does), and I was able to touch base with him in between his speaking appearances at CPAC. Michael’s site is here: for those of you unaware of the odd nature of Texan nomenclature, a “Texas Railroad Commissioner” doesn’t actually have oversight over railroads. The position instead involves oversight | Read More »
Meet Will Gregory (R CAND, CT-04).
Moving right along on the CPAC videos. Will’s site is here. Crossposted to Moe Lane.
Meet Tim Burns (R CAND, PA-12).
Moving on along on the CPAC interviews. Tim’s site is here. Crossposted to Moe Lane.
Meet Les Phillip (R CAND, AL-05).
There are still quite a few ones to process from CPAC, so here’s Les Phillip. His website is here. Crossposted to RedState.
Scenes from CPAC: me and DemonSheep on Stage Right Show Friday night.
Below the fold is Friday night’s Stage Right Show: I’m on, starting at about 31:10. And I’m promptly upstaged by the very next interviewee, too. Yes, I was followed by – and shown up by – DemonSheep (and Leon Wolf). I had a lot of fun doing it anyway. Larry O’Connor, by the way, is the guy who the next day eviscerated Max Blumenthal after | Read More »
The CPAC Chuck DeVore interview.
Not a very interesting title, but I am very, very tired. Part 2 Chuck DeVore website here. Moe Lane Crossposted to Moe Lane.
Meet Steve Poizner (R CAND, CA-GOV)
Downloading slooooow, but here’s the latest one from CPAC: Steve’s website is here. Moe Lane Crossposted to Moe Lane.
Meet Isaac Hayes (R CAND, IL-02).
The queue of interviews is full, by the way: I have a ton of them, but the video uploads are killing me. Expect them over the next bunch of days. Anyway, here’s Isaac Hayes: no relation, to his own regret. His site is here. Moe Lane Crossposted to Moe Lane.
Meet John Loughlin (R CAND, RI-01).
John Loughlin, candidate for RI-01 (Patrick Kennedy’s seat). His website is here: We have more on the way from CPAC. Moe Lane PS: Crossposted to Moe Lane.
Meet Mike Lee (R CAND, UT-SEN).
The connection’s spotty, so let me just put this up: His website is here. Good guy.
Meet Marlin Stutzman (R-CAND, IN-SEN).
Marlin, not Martin. Website here. Another CPAC interview.
