A major Republican battle is set for tomorrow. It is a battle between conservatives and RINOs. It is a very important battle that may decide the future of the Republican Party and it is one not many people have heard about.
What is it?
It is the election for the Vice Chairman of the Senate Republican Conference.
Many people may read that last sentence and go, “What?” After that build up, it is almost a let down.
The fight over that spot in the leadership may sound very boring, but the truth is, it is very important.
That position is the lowest position in the Senate leadership for the Republicans. This Vice Chairmanship came open when Lamar Alexander, who held the number three spot in the Senate leadership, decided to not seek reelection. The number four and five leaders each moved up and opened up this spot.
Ron Johnson from Wisconsin is one of the really good guys in the Senate. He is a Tea Party Conservative with a really good voting record that matches his ideals. After Alexander announced his decision not to run and the others moved up, Johnson announced he was going to run.
Most observers expected the election to be held in January. Then Senator Roy Blount, a RINO got involved in the race. With the tacit support of the Crown Prince of the RINOs, Mitch McConnell, the race was suddenly moved to December.
It was clear to McConnell that if the election were held in January, Johnson would win. McConnell is a RINO who does not want conservatives in the leadership.
We need to act.
We can keep complaining that we don’t like the RINOs in the Republican Party calling all of the shots or we can do something about it.
Let’s do something about it.
If you have Republican Senators, you need to call them today and tell them to vote for Ron Johnson in the race for the Vice Chairmanship for the Senate Republican Conference.
The vote will be held tomorrow, December 13th, so we need to call today. Call the Capitol Hill Switchboard and ask for your Senator’s office. The number is 202-224-3121.
Call your Senator’s local office as well. Often those are easier to get through to and trust me, if they suddenly get a wave of calls at the local office, the Washington office is informed immediately.
Remember these calls go only to Republican Senators. If you happen to be in California, well you are out of luck on a number of fronts.
You can also call Mitch McConnell’s office. His number is 202-224-2541. Tell his office that we the people who put the GOP back on the map want conservative leadership and we want him to back Ron Johnson.
It is time for us to quit complaining about RINOs in the leadership of the Republican Party and do something to put them on the endangered species list.
Call today and keep calling!
I have called Lamar Alexander's office though that is probably a waste of time. I emailed a connection I have at Senator Bob Corker's office. He is running for reelection this year so he might do the right thing.
My "republican " senators, feinstein and boxer, will surely be of considerable assistance.
Done. Called Mark Kirk's office in Chicago.
Missouri Senator Roy Blunt is not a RINO. On what basis are you accusing him of such?
I just called my Senator's office in DC.. the RINO Senator from Alaska, Lisa Murkowski, and told the staff that I wanted to urge the Senator to vote for Ron Johnson in the race for this position for the Senate Republican Conference. I added that we don't need any more RINOs, we need more conservatives. I am also calling her local office.
Called my two...one was Alexander...wonder how much good that did?
The Republican Progressives are very good at playing games to hold on to their own. This is why I believe raising money and purging the GOP Senate has to be our number one goal. Is the presidency more important than taking the Senate? The Republican Progressives are more interested in working with the Socialist Progressive Democrats, than with The Tea Party, in my opinion. Further, I believe that making our calls for Senator Johnson acted as a catalyst to galvanize the Republican Progressives (sufficiently "whpped") to galvanize around Republican Progressive Roy Blunt.
Oh, one last thing, Senator Blunt is "liason" to the Mitt Romney campaign.
Who do you think will be handed to us by the the Republican Progs as the chosen one?
I called Senator Murkowski for all the good it will do.
