Today is Tuesday in June. Among other things, in several states that means primaries. These primaries are important because Tea Party Candidates are out trying to change the way Washington does business.
Two primaries today are important.
The first is in Virginia where Jamie Radtke is taking on George Allen in the Virginia Republican Primary to become the nominee and take on far left wing, former DNC Chair Tim Kaine this fall.
In addition to Jamie, there are two other candidates including Bishop E.W. Jackson, but they are not serious threats.
Jamie Radtke is the first candidate for Senate to come out of the Tea Party movement. She has been endorsed by a number of top conservatives including Richard Viguerie.
George Allen, the former Virginia Governor and Senator who lost the race six years ago to Jim Webb is considered the front runner. Allen is an affable guy who is part of the establishment. Yesterday, he was campaigning in northern Virginia, not too far from DC with Virginia’s governor Bob McDonnell and other members of the Republican Party.
There is the problem.
We have tried the establishment before and the establishment is what got us into these problems.
While Allen would certainly be preferable to Kaine, Jamie Radtke represents the people. That is why she has overwhelming Tea Party support. Virtually every Tea Party in Virginia has endorsed her. If she is sent to the United States Senate, Jamie Radtke will support sanity in government. She opposes taxes, borrowing and spending.
Jamie is asking conservatives to go out today in a conservative “vote bomb” and put her over the top.
In Maine, Scott D’amboise is fighting to be the Republican nominee to replace Olympia Snowe, who is known to conservatives as one of the sell-out sisters.
Scott may have done more than any one person to get Snowe to retire. When she realized she would lose to Scott in a primary, she announced her retirement.
Now the field is crowded with a number of people who want to replace Snowe.
We need a solid conservative to replace Snowe. Snowe was a reliable sell out vote anytime the liberals needed a Republican to cross the line. She voted for numerous bills that hurt America, including Obamacare. We need someone to replace her who will stand for America, not against America. We need someone who will vote with the people of America, not against the people of America. We need someone who is a conservative, not someone who cannot make up her mind.
Today is primary day in both Virginia and Maine. Since these are primaries and there is no Presidential race driving the elections, turnout will be light. In Virginia, some estimates are that turn out could be as low as 3.5%.
If you are in Virginia or Maine, we need you to get out today and vote for these Tea Party candidates. If you have family or friends in either Virginia or Maine, call them today and ask them to get out and vote for Jamie Radtke and Scott D’amboise.
With voter turn out low, the winner in both races will be the one who gets the vote out.
Help put Tea Party activists in the Senate and let’s keep the year of the Tea Party Senator rolling.
Good Morning, Judson and all,
North Dakota is holding their primary today, as well. The GOP is so corrupt there, their state convention was a joke. John Hoeven is NOT the conservative we'd hoped he'd be. And Rick Berg is definitely in the RINO camp.
Patriots all should be voting for Duane Sand for Congress, Kevin Cramer for Representative and Paul Sorum as a Write-In for Governor.
Any of you know people in these 2 states call or email them!These little votes are huge in taking our country back!people are busy and have way too much on their plate thses days but we must take time for these little things that grow into big scarey ugly things like Olympia Snow if we are not paying attention!
Thank you for the information.
I know you are busy, but it seems to me that someone should have gotten this out sooner so we could pass it on.
People in those states should be informed on who they are voting for but what if they are not?
I've blogged about this several times in the last few weeks...
Sorry. I was out of town for a while with no computer.
Norma Sears has a point. I would like to think the local Tea Party people have warned their voting districts.
Looking at NOV, and once addressing the silent 40% of Americans who don't vote: we need to know in fine detail who these people are, why they don't vote, can they be reasoned with, can we get them to vote Republican?
There are other things we need to know about them but the above will do for a start.
If you have any of the above answers or opinions, contact me. With so many close races 1-2 thousand votes from these people could be the difference.
I will get on Facebook and get the word out there. But I have a feeling that all the Tea Party members are going to get out there and vote for her anyway. Wr are adament about winning this nation back and I don't think even one would miss voting today. But we must make sure, so I will get on Facebook and remind them all to go out there today!! Thank you for the information Judson.
