Huh? IMHO, the quota concept is racist liberal paradigm. Is that trolling?

Did Watts actually vote for “zero”? I know he was talking about it.

Kevin’s response.

I’m not exactly sure what you are saying, Fred. What is the surprise?

I appreciate whatever you donated to help the cause, and I assure you I used the funds for very good endeavors. Considering I have received less than $7K of donations and spent over $300K of my own money, I’m not sure what you are implying.

I have run billboards, created radio shows, TV shows, spoken at over 100 events most of them pro bono.

As for the GOP’s “dirty little secret,” it’s no secret that the GOP has not supported many candidates that they should have, but I’m not complaining. In fact, the reason for the press conference is to call out Democrats!

Thanks for the message.


End of his response.

Unlike the title, he doesn’t say they have given NO help, he says the GOP has not supported many...

p.s. the Tea party have.

Fred, I think the headline, and the whole first part of the article is confusing. To me it appears that Kevin Jackson (a conservative and freeper) is chastising the GOP for not supporting some grassroots candidates (black or white).

It seems to me that he’s referring to establishment types, not the tea party Republicans.

Hopefully, he will stop by and clarify :)

Yeah, Kevin says the press conference is to call out the Democrats...which confused me, if he’s running Republican why call out the Democrats, when the article says it’s to discuss support (or lack thereof) of the GOP.

Watts never seemed stupid, knowing about Obama’s connections and past he voted for Obama according to JC?

Didn't hear that, for me if true that would disqualify him from the party later as far as a leader.

The first part of the article is written by someone else, and I believe that person is misquoting or misinterpreting something. Just my .02

Are you calling Michael Steele a self-loathing race traitor?

Support for Allen West here on FR and especially in the Florida board has been fierce. I thought Scott’s choice of Jennifer Carroll as his lt. gov was brilliant but he has not really highlighted this. I think that is a mistake.

I live in Mississippi District 2 and am supporting Bill Marcy. I am disappointed that the Party hasn’t helped him, but apparently they don’t think he stands a chance to beat Bennie Thompson. I hope they are ashamed and that Bill can pull off a stunning upset on Tuesday. I plan to do my part to make it so.
