RS Gathering 2011: Don Stenberg (R CAND, NE-SEN PRIMARY).
This is, unfortunately, a bit late: there were some problems with this and another video, which have seen been resolved. At any rate, Don was one of our speakers at the Gathering – he’s hoping to defeat the other pseudo-moderate Democratic Senator named Nelson in the US Senate – and Don took a few moments to talk with us the night before: Don’s site is | Read More »
RS Gathering 2011: Adam Hasner (R CAND, FL-SEN PRIMARY).
Adam Hasner was one of our speakers at the RedState Gathering, and he was available for a few moments for comments. You may recognize the backdrop; it’s from the Teddy Roosevelt painting, and I’d like to note that I think that campaigns looking for nice backgrounds from which to do their videos could do worse than use Steve Penley’s stuff. Adam’s site is here. I | Read More »
Steve Penley: The RS Gathering’s secret weapon.
If you attended the RS Gathering, or saw some of the photos that were taken by various and sundry folks, then you saw various paintings by an artist named Steve Penley scattered across the event. We were EXTREMELY FORTUNATE that Steve allowed us to have access to his work for the event; he’s been a quiet favorite among RedState Contributors for some time now, and | Read More »
RS Gathering: Tim Scott (R, SC-01).
Tim Scott was elected last year on a general reform slate in South Carolina: he was one of the candidates that we took an interest in, so it was great that he got to speak with our readers Friday night. Afterward, we spoke with Tim briefly: Sound was a little off at first: we had some motivated listeners Friday night.
RS Gathering 2011: Nikki Haley.
As always, we try to take the time to talk briefly with some of the candidates and politicians that attend the RedState Gathering. As Governor Halley was so kind as to host us this year, I thought that I’d start with her. Governor Haley has of course been long a friend of the site, and it was a pleasure to have her welcome us to | Read More »
RS Gathering: Day Two.
Big day, too: we’ve had the training classes, and we’re hearing from Gov Haley now. FreedomWorks and Heritage have presentations today, and we’ll have candidates like Ted Cruz and Michael Williams and Richard Mourdock and Don Stenberg and Adam Hasner* making themselves available for questions. And, of course, there’s going to be a movie showing of The Undefeated tonight, as a special treat. Oh, and, | Read More »
RS Gathering: The First Day.
We’ve had the first set of speakers tonight: Rick Scott, Jim Demint, Nikki Haley. Cliche to say ‘a lot of energy,’ but there’s an enthusiasm here that is at higher… Intensity than we’ve had in the past. It’s fun to see, actually. It’s also hot as all get-out, which is why half the Contributors are decompressing in a pizza parlor right now. That and the | Read More »
At the RS Gathering (Friday Night)…
…and I have just determined that while I have a laptop, I have an internet connection, and I have a video camera (currently holding two clips of Pat Toomey) – I do not have a cable that will allow me to transfer video from the camera to the laptop, and then use to show the rest of you via the Internet. So expect a whole | Read More »
Nikki Haley (R Candidate, SC Gov) and the RS Gathering.
You may remember South Carolina gubernatorial candidate Nikki Haley from a previous interview that she did with RedState; she’s recently been profiled in Politico as one of the GOP’s potential stars of the 2010 election cycle… The daughter of two immigrants, Haley knocked off South Carolina’s then-longest-serving incumbent to become the first Indian-American Republican elected to a state Legislature. After that upset victory, she again | Read More »
