On Newt Gingrich’s Endorsement
A lot of people have called me and emailed me to say that the original post that was here was too rough on former Speaker Gingrich. I’ll concede that this could be the case and replace the text with this instead. For several weeks conservative leaders have been asking Mr. Gingrich to sit out of NY-23, knowing Pete Sessions and others were pressuring Gingrich to | Read More »
What a Real Leader Looks Like
A real leader looks like Mike Pence. While John Boehner and Eric Cantor have rushed to line up with ACORN and support a Republican candidate in NY-23 who is to the left of her Democrat opponent, Congressman Mike Pence, the Chairman of the Republican Conference, refuses despite pressure to join Cantor and Boehner.Pence refuses to take shots at his own side, but is also refusing | Read More »
Dede Scozzafava is Toast. But We Need $25,000.00 ASAP
Kudos to Michael Steele. The Politico is reporting what we said would happen some months ago. “Chairman Steele hasn’t put up a cent, not even the obligatory $5,000,” said a New York-based GOP operative. “There’s been no support from the RNC. Democrats are going all out for this race. Everyone’s in the same direction.” Here is what I have been able to confirm about NY-23 | Read More »
Jeb Hensarling Becomes a Party Man
Former Chairman of the conservative Republican Study Committee Mike Pence is not giving Dede Scozzafava money and is not endorsing her. He refuses to side with an ACORN supported leftist.Contrast that with the most recent former Chairman of the RSC, Jeb Hensarling, a man I have long admired and the first member of Congress I ever donated to. Congressman Hensarling is throwing his principles out | Read More »
Scozzafava v. Hoffman
The National Republican Congressional Committee feels so threatened by Republican Doug Hoffman’s campaign, which the NRCC says is going no where, that they have taken to running attack ads against Hoffman. Their accusation? Hoffman is not as conservative as he says he is.Really?Okay. For sake of argument, let’s say Hoffman is not as conservative as he claims. That still puts him to the right of | Read More »
House Republican Leadership Aligns With ACORN: Support pro-gay marriage, pro-abortion, pro-big government ACORN endorsed candidate
In a disappointing sign that the House Republican Leadership has not earned and does not deserve to retake the majority in the House of Representatives, a bunch of people are confirming for me today that the House GOP has decided to sign on with ACORN and endorse Dede Scozzafava in NY-23. As I reported the other day, Scozzafava has repeatedly been backed by ACORN in | Read More »
New York Republicans Put Up ACORN Backed Candidate in NY-23
We have broken down in detail how ACORN has its own political party called the Working Families Party in New York. When a candidate appears as a Working Families Party candidate in New York, it is a signal that this is the candidate ACORN is putting up.In New York’s 23rd Congressional District, the Republican Party rushed to nominate Dede Scozzafava as the replacement for Congressman | Read More »
Hoffman over Scozzafava: The Exception That Proves the Rule
I am on record repeatedly saying that disaffected conservatives should not agitate for a third party. It truly makes no sense. Ballot access laws in the fifty states make it extremely impractical to mount a third party challenge except in very rare cases. Historically, those cases are premised on individuals who, once off the national stage, see their third party collapse, see e.g. Teddy Roosevelt | Read More »
Ny-23: Liberal Republican In, Conservative Dem out.
Well, Liberal Republican Dede Scozzafava ( she may be better than McHugh, she opposes Cap-and-Tax) got the GOP Nomination last night. Also, today, Conservative Democrat, Darrell Aubertine, whom Red State was ready to endorse, has decided not to run. So, now we are gonna be stuck with a Center-Left Republican or a Center-Left Dem. Who do I think you should support? The Republican. Isn’t it | Read More »
What a Republican Suicide Looks Like [updated]
There are two candidates in NY-23 worth focusing on (there are actually several Republicans vying for a party nomination to run against one Democrat).One candidate is pro-life, supports traditional marriage, and is pretty fiscally responsible.The other is pro-abortion, supports gay marriage, and is pretty fiscally reckless.You’d think the first candidate is the Republican and the second is the Democrat. You would be wrong.In New York’s | Read More »
In NY-23, Is Dede Scozzafava the Best We Can Do?
If Dede Scozzafava is the best the New York Republicans can come up with, let’s just hand the district over to the Democrats.Let’s ignore that she is a liberal. Let’s ignore that she’s in favor of abortion rights. Let’s ignore that she is a big proponent of the gay rights agenda. Let’s ignore that she’s not really a fiscal conservative.Let’s ignore her political record, in | Read More »
Will NY GOP Nominate Liberal in House Special?
As Congress has been debating Obamacare, cap-and-trade, and the Sotomayor nomination, the cracks in the Democrat foundation are starting to become clear. Americans recognize the failure of Obama’s approach to the economy. They worry that massive government intervention in health care will lead to rationing. And they fear the colossal drag on the economy that Obama and the Democrats seek to impose through new and | Read More »
