RedState Gathering: Gov. Rick Scott, Speaker-Designate Will Weatherford.
Two more RedState Gathering videos for the night: the first is Governor Rick Scott, who was of course our host for the weekend… …and the second is of Speaker-Designate Will Weatherford, who is poised to be the next Speaker of the House in the Florida legislature. Moe Lane (crosspost)
RedState Gathering: Gov. Bobby Jindal (R, LA).
We’re always happy to hear from Gov. Bobby Jindal, and after the speech that he gave last Saturday* (as I noted at the time, you could see the crowd collectively thinking Why, Bobby here would make a perfectly good Vice President) he took a few moments to talk to me about… you know. Stuff**. Moe Lane (crosspost)
RedState Gathering: Reince Priebus, Sharon Day.
A couple of videos, bundled together: we had both RNC Co-chair Sharon Day and RNC Chair Reince Priebus speaking at the RedState Gathering. Both took a moment to speak to me later: Sharon Day Reince Priebus By the way: I am not claiming that Reince was energized enough by the RedState Gathering to go out the next day to the Sunday morning talk shows and | Read More »
RedState Gathering: Rep. Sandy Adams (R CAND, FL-07 PRI)
There are going to be a bunch of Florida interviews this week; as noted before, Florida’s primary is going on even as we speak. And one person I spoke to was Rep. Sandy Adams, who is now in a primary with Rep. John Mica; we touched base after her speech to talk a little about the Gathering, and whatnot. Rep. Adams’ site is here. Moe | Read More »
RS Gathering: Perry declares.
Governor Perry has made it official today: he’s running for President. Reactions from various and sundry Contributors and alumni within reach of the bar: Ben Howe: holy monkey Leon Wolf : well, that happened. Aaron Gardner: Rick Perry just became President. Now we just need to wait for the election. Brian Simpson: right person, right time, great speech. Thomas Crown: hit the right points, needs | Read More »
It’s July 14th. Where are the D candidates for LA-GOV?
Aside from Ms. Tara Hollis, of course – note that I’m not going to make fun of her for running. I could, but there’s something endearing about meeting a Democrat who actually still believes that her party is really committed to democracy and egalitarianism and anything else besides the creation and perpetuation of a paternalistic nanny-state run by people who think that they’re too smart | Read More »
RedState Gathering: Mike Lee (R CAND, UT-SEN).
Mike Lee, as you probably remember, was one of the first insurgent Republican Senate candidates of 2010, and a long-time friend of RedState. We were able to speak briefly Saturday: …at least, we were once I was able to resolve some technical difficulties. Like finding my cell phone. The guy had to call my number in order to help track it down. Mike’s site is | Read More »
RedState Gathering: Dr. Donna Campbell (R CAND, TX-25).
We had the opportunity to speak with Dr. Donna Campbell at the RedState Gathering. Dr. Campbell is running against Lloyd Doggett in the 25th district: Doggett, of course, is a favorite of the radical antiwar Left for his extensive and consistent anti-military voting record. Nasty piece of work, all in all, so it was nice to talk with his challenger: Dr. Campbell’s site is here. | Read More »
RedState Gathering: Rick Perry (R, TX-GOV).
Governor Perry was an excellent host governor for the RedState Gathering, and took the time to talk with many of us on various matters. Here we talk about activism and the 2010 elections: Governor Perry’s election site is here. Moe Lane Crossposted to Moe Lane.
RedState Gathering: Herman Cain.
Herman Cain spoke at the Gathering earlier this morning, and we had the chance to chat later: Herman Cain’s site is here.
RedState Gathering: Nikki Haley.
These will be filtering out over the next couple of days: the bulk of them may not even be put up until after I can get back home. In the meantime, here’s our quick talk with SC GOV nominee Nikki Haley. Nikki’s site, of course, is here.
RedState Gathering Update: FTR Radio broadcasting live.
FTR Radio – a good bunch of folks, by the way – is covering the entire proceedings, so if you’re not here you can still hear our speakers in real time. Click on the “Listen and Chat” button at the link to get started: you don’t need to register to hear it, but you should register on general principles…
RedState Gathering – Ted Cruz.
This interview is from last week’s RedState gathering. Ted Cruz is the guy running for Texas Attorney General – and as you can see, he’s pretty serious about this race. He’s also pretty serious about using the new social media to get his message out: I think that I have maybe one more of these interviews left: as always, you should check out Dave_in_Fla’s blog | Read More »
RedState Gathering – Pat Toomey (R, SEN-PA).
This one is of his speech that Toomey did for the Gathering, not the interview afterward: I’m not sure if there is going to be a better video copy of it, so enjoy. Pat Toomey is, of course, the guy who scared Arlen Specter into getting primary challenged by the Democrats instead of the Republicans, which is probably not what Specter had in mind. Such | Read More »
RedState Gathering – Nikki Haley (R Cand, SC-GOV) interview.
Another quick interview, this time with Nikki Haley. She’s another candidate that I’ve been following, and I’m very pleased that she was able to attend the Gathering. As mentioned earlier, footage of her actual comments and question-and-answer session will be made available later. Crossposted to Moe Lane.
RedState Gathering – Michael Williams (R Cand, TX-Sen)
I have a bunch of these quick interviews, and they’ll all be going up as the day goes on. This one is with Michael Williams, who you will remember is someone that I’ve been boosting for some time. This is not his speech and question/answer session: that will be a separate video that will appear later. This is just me asking him a few questions. | Read More »
