Senate Conservatives Fund
Conservative Josh Mandel booked two early endorsements from conservative powerhouses The Club for Growth PAC and The Senate Conservatives Fund, and now he’s picked-up a third; our friends at the Citizens United Political Victory Fund.
Although it is early, we like what we see in Josh Mandel, particularly his fiscal conservatism and his willingness to tell it like it is about the war Islam has declared on the West.
In the five-way primary, Glenn has managed to capitalize on the fractured field thanks to a surge of support from movement conservatives such as Ted Cruz and Mike Lee and the Senate Conservatives Fund.
He wrote the McCain-Kennedy and “Gang of Eight” immigration bills that offered amnesty to millions of illegal aliens. He voted for the Wall Street bailout, to fund the implementation of Obamacare, for the $600 billion “fiscal cliff” tax hike, and to raise the debt limit 14 different times! John McCain lost his way a long time ago and it’s time to replace him with a strong conservative leader who will support and defend the Constitution.
We see Senator Mike Lee’s principled commitment to conservative governance as one of the last lines of defense in our fight to preserve constitutional government. If Mike Lee falls then the North Star of constitutional government in the Senate will wink out.
It's time to identify a set of conservative priorities that a Repub. Senate would tackle in '15 and send a signal to the conservative grassroots that a Repub. victory will mean a new focus in Washington on limited government and upholding the Constitution.
The NRSC, US Chamber, and other GOP-E orgs poured millions into primaries to stop Senate Conservatives Fund gains. NRSC spent so much money trying to protect its incumbents that it now has no money to pick up new seats.
“At the end of the day, statistically, I think, and now I’m talking in the whole group, it was pretty lucky on their part,” Ken Cuccinelli, the former Repub. attorney general of VA and new president of the Senate Conservatives Fund said of the incumbent victors. “It was a statistical anomaly.”
President of the Senate Conservatives Fund Ken Cuccinelli stated, "Other Republican senators were supporting that super PAC that did all the race-baiting attacks. This is not over for them because it suggests they don’t, aren’t just not conservative, that they are anti-conservative. And the conservative base will respond to that."
Here are the GOP senators who helped fund Cochran's sleazy campaign. Contact these senators and tell them you don't want them to fund candidates who run on liberal issues & use race-baiting tactics to get Dems to hijack GOP elections.
Former Virginia Attorney General Ken Cuccinelli is the new president for the Senate Conservatives Fund, the group announced Weds. “Ken Cuccinelli is the perfect person to continue and expand on what Jim DeMint started with SCF,” said Matt Hoskins, the group’s executive director, in an email to members.
In Nebraska's increasingly negative GOP Senate primary we endorsed Ben Sasse because he is the only candidate talking about the most important issue in politics today; breaking Washington's Iron Triangle of bureaucrats, lobbyists and career politicians. If you demand change in Washington vote Ben Sasse in the May 13 Nebraska Republican Senate primary.
Mitch McConnell has been pretty open in the past about his contempt for conservatives. He has referred to conservatives and the outside groups they fund, as traitors, bullies, drunks, and fringe. He claims conservatives “tear up every bar they walk into,” and he wants to “punch” the tea party “in the nose.”
Ted Cruz has angered the GOP estab. by supporting conservative group the Madison Project, which is attempting to replace incumbent Repub. senators with tea party activists in the midterm elections.
The Senate Conservatives Fund is calling on House Repubs. to force out Speaker John Boehner, taking aim at Boehner's support of a clean debt-ceiling hike. "John Boehner must be replaced as Speaker," the group says.
Matt Hoskins of the Senate Conservatives Fund sure got it right when he said, "We will never stop the massive spending and debt that are destroying our country if the Republican Speaker of the House surrenders to the Democrats and stabs conservatives in the back.”
Sen. Thad Cochran's (R-Miss.) Tea Party challenger, Miss. state Sen. Chris McDaniel (R) got a big fundraising boost from many conservative groups including the Club for Growth, FreedomWorks and the Senate Conservatives Fund.
When you beat the sitting Senate Repub. Leader in a primary, suddenly Washington knows the grassroots are in charge. The attacks on conservatives will only get worse until conservatives beat Mitch McConnell.
“Over the past few decades, he [Sen. Pat Roberts] has unfortunately become the quintessential career politician, failing to thwart the unprecedented growth of government when it really counted,” the Madison Project said. They endorsed conservative candidate Dr. Milton Wolf.
Repub. leaders and several hard-right groups are displaying the classic signs of a political divorce, including bitter name-calling and reprisals against one another.
