The Tim Bridgewater Attack On Jim DeMint Continues
Tim Bridgewater’s supporters have set up and are pushing a website called the “Jim DeMint Takeover.” It contains just one post. It is a YouTube of Mike Lee, who is asked, “If you are elected as the new Senator from Utah, who will be your mentor and why?” Mike Lee’s response? “My mentor in the senate and among those who are still in the world | Read More »
A Senate Candidate Helps Mexican Drug Lords Get U.S. Tax Dollars, Then Launches a Jihad Against Jim DeMint
A few days ago, former Utah Senate candidate Cherilyn Eager, the woman who claimed Tim Bridgewater offered to pay off her campaign debt in exchange for her endorsement then denied that was a bribe before – you know – endorsing Bridgewater, came onto RedState and attacked Jim DeMint. Eager claims that Jim DeMint and Mike Lee are both affiliated with some energy company I’ve never | Read More »
An Inconvenient Truth: Bob Bennett and Tim Bridgewater Together
Months ago I told you Bob Bennett and Tim Bridgewater were cutting a deal. I got so much blowback from so many people I actually had to remove the post from the front page of RedState. I stood by the story, but the brouhaha that resulted necessitated the post going into draft mode so we could get on with the day. Well, I was and | Read More »
Did a Candidate for the U.S. Senate Use Your Tax Dollars to Help a Mexican Drug Trafficker?
By now it’s a well known and established fact that Utah Senate candidate Tim Bridgewater isn’t exactly the traditional small business man that he wants Utah voters to believe; rather, he’s a lobbyist who specializes in getting taxpayer money for his own and for his clients’ businesses – including overseas businesses like Indonesia Power. But did Tim Bridgewater stoop so low as to secure a | Read More »
Mike Lee Is Up 9 Points
In the race for Bob Bennett’s Senate seat in Utah, Mike Lee is ahead by 9 points. (PDF) This is important because Bridgewater can write himself huge checks between now and the primary election to close any gap, so the further ahead Mike is the better. This also means you need to give as much money as you can as quickly as you can and | Read More »
Tim Bridgewater: Indonesian Job Creator
Tim Bridgewater want to pretend the Utah primary is about a businessman versus a lawyer. Given Bridgewater’s track record, he’s using the term “businessman” loosely. In fact, I can’t tell that any of businesses are profitable except for the infusions of cash secured for him by Bob Bennett as earmarks. Along the way, Bridgewater has been creating jobs, just not for Utahans — for Indonesians. | Read More »
Bennett: So you booted me, but how about I pick my replacement?
Bob Bennett got knocked out of the Utah race before the runoff even happened. Just to put in perspective what a huge win that was for the movement, it had been 70 years since an incumbent had been knocked out of a primary in Utah. That’s what happens when you’re a “Republican” who drafted a health care plan that included an individual mandate, supported TARP, | Read More »

It Is What Politicians Do, Not What They Say
Politicians will say anything under the sun to get elected. The most Godless, secular leftist in America running in South Carolina would cling to Jesus, mom, and apple pie with the best of them. It is why we must dig into candidates’ actions, not their words. Pledges in Washington have become a joke because of this. Anybody can sign a pledge saying they will not | Read More »
Rob Jesmer: Super Tuesday’s Super Loser
So top NRSC strategist Rob Jesmer, who gave us the Charlie Crist debacle and backed Bob Bennett in Utah, had another banner day on Super Tuesday’s primary contests. The two candidates he fought to get the NRSC to back suffered embarrassing defeats (Arlen Specter & Trey Grayson) , and the two candidates he tried to destroy (Pat Toomey & Rand Paul) cake-walked into big victories. | Read More »

Cherilyn Eagar Digs In and Backtracks
The Cherilyn Eagar campaign posted a statement about Ms. Eagar’s meeting with Tim Bridgewater back on May 12th. I guess she knew where this was headed. Read her statement. The relevant part is here: Mr. Bridgewater offered me the role of an unpaid spokeswoman, and I was honored at his confidence in me. It was a compliment to our campaign. In an earlier meeting with | Read More »
Tim Bridgewater’s Bribe
