Congressman Tom Tancredo Endorses Kaloogian for Senate!
Howard Kaloogian for U.S. Senate ^ | 2-19-04

Posted on 02/19/2004 11:08:31 AM PST by StoneColdGOP

Chairman of Congressional Immigration Caucus to Attend Kaloogian-Led Rally in Burlingame on Saturday

The Chairman of the Congressional Immigration Reform Caucus, Congressman Tom Tancredo (R-Colorado), has endorsed Howard Kaloogian for the Republican nomination for U.S. Senate.

Tancredo explained that Kaloogian's strong stand against illegal immigration and outstanding service as a conservative Republican State Assemblyman were reasons for his endorsement. Tancredo has offered to assist Kaloogian in a variety of ways in the final two weeks of the campaign.

"The United States Senate needs Howard Kaloogian's strong voice and leadership! I endorse his candidacy and offer my wholehearted support" Tancredo said.

"With Howard's strong voice for immigration reform and border security, we can make real progress on this important issue in the U.S. Congress!"

Kaloogian expressed his appreciation for Tancredo's backing, noting the national following he has attracted in his efforts to fight for stronger border control and fiscal responsibility.

"Tom Tancredo is a hero to millions of Americans who want to see our borders enforced. His support along with that of dozens of other national conservative leaders will enable us to raise the money we need in these final days to win the Republican nomination for Senate", Kaloogian said.

On Saturday, February 21, 2004, Tom Tancredo will fly to San Francisco to join Kaloogian at a rally against Democrat Gil Cedillo's new proposal to grant drivers' licenses to illegal aliens (SB 1160).

The rally takes place at 10:30AM at the Burlingame Hyatt hotel and is being organized by Kaloogian.

Why should they ruin a perfect track record?

Conservatives always need to remind Republicans that they have a place in the new party structure.

Jones. A real winner (gulp). Will he lose to Boxer by 10 or 15 points? See how cartels (the "Two-party Cartel) dilutes the talent to choose from. It's so bad here that two conservatives in Orange county have to fight it out. Can't have a person making it to the big dance w/o approval of the elites who certainly don't have your interests in mind.

And remind us again, why anyone who thinks there is a "right way" to give illegals licenses or amnesty and enjoys spending money not unlike a typical Dem has in common with the alleged "values" of the GOP?

They did not endorse in this race. They HAD endorsed Strickland (ha ha!) unanimously back in August, but neither Jones or Kaloogian could get the numbers for the endorsement.

Contrary to some of the stuff Kaloogian folks are spreading, Jones has strong support among conservatives.

Without Tom McClintock and the other CRA-supported conservatives holding the line against the Bay Area communists and L.A. Raza-Nazis this state would be the kind of socialist haven the left wingers are praying for.

The more RINOs and socialists get elected and the more they try to swindle the people into backing spend-more, tax-more ballot initiatives, the more they get closer to succeeding. Thank God there are SOME principled people here to say NO.

And leave my hubris alone.

I'm sorry - were you referring to Tom McClintock who was the TOP Republican vote-getter in California in 2002? Outpolling the likes of pro-choice moderates like Bruce McPherson and Gary Mendoza.

McClintock is the conscience of the Republican Party in California. Unless your version of the Republican Party is a high tax, drivers' license for illegal aliens, ban the 2nd amendment vision?

The moderates in this race recognize where rank and file Republicans are. That's why they all run like conservatives!

You are confusing your nouns. RINO is the opposite of conservative.

Jones has lot's of RINO support. Kaloogian has lots of CONSERVATIVE support. There is a difference.

Immigration

Taxes

Spending

Bonds

SB1160...

Many of the same conservatives that said Dick Riordan was our best candidate are now supporting Bill Jones.

Gee, that means a lot.

That's just BS. Jones has as much support among conservative organizations as Kaloogian, PLUS support from the rest of the party. Jones also kills Kaloogian in the polls among self-described conservatives.

The CRA, which I'm sure you worship, was split between Jones and Kaloogian.

To paraphrase you, that's fraudulent.

Kaloogian has 10 conservative leaders and organizations supporting him to every 1 that Jones has.

If you go back and compare those who have endorsed Dick Riordan vs. those who are endorsing Jones you will find that - especially comparing the congressional delegation - they are very similar.

The difference is that if Jones "wins" than the Republicans credability is further hurt. Jones will do nothing but make the majority of people who support the concepts Kooligan stands for turn off of politics. Who wants to hear some dorky Republican say things similar to the other side of the aisle?

Jones is the kind of dithering, boring Country Club Republican candidate that makes Independents change the channel on politics.

Yes, the CRA spilt on Jones-Kaloogian.

That's both impressive for Jones and disappointing.

Impressive because Kaloogian is more conservative than Jones so CRA would be more philosophically like Kaloogian.

Disappointing because the main reason for Steve Frank and Jim Camp being hired was for drills exactly like CRA... but no matter how much wooing they did, the Jones campaign could not secure an endorsement for Jones from CRA because he just isn't the reliable type of conservative they support.

Jones comes with Dreier, Radanovich, and Issa, Kaloogian counters with nothing.

Kaloogian comes with Gann and BAMPAC, Jones counters with Howard Jarvis and National Asian Republican Coalition and National Korean-American Republican Association.

Jones comes with Oller and Strickland, Kaloogian counters with McClintock and Mountjoy.

Kaloogian comes with national figures like Schlafly, Weyrich, Dobson, and Tancredo, Jones counters with California bigwigs from all over the state, like Ward Connerly.

Kaloogian has the Young Republican Federation of San Diego, Jones has the California Young Republicans.

You left off a few Kaloogian endorsements!

Kaloogian has 3 taxpayer organizations endorsing him. Jones bought HJTA at the last minute as part of the "YES on 57/58" package with Schwarzenegger.

You left off Jack Kemp, Bruce Herschensohn, Phyllis Schlafly, Dr. James Dobson, Gun Owners of America, Eagle Forum, Congressman Tom Tancredo, Concerned Women for America, Prop 187 Author Ron Prince, Republican Liberty Caucus, Paul Weyrich, Morton Blackwell, The Madison Project... oh hey, I'll just give you the link to make it easier for you:

Sorry - my bad.

I had not seen your sentence of:

"Kaloogian comes with national figures like Schlafly, Weyrich, Dobson, and Tancredo, Jones counters with California bigwigs from all over the state, like Ward Connerly."

I had not scrolled down far enough to see you make that point. I would still suggest Kaloogian outdoes Jones in national conservative leadership.

Read this week's Human Events or William Rusher's column in World Net Daily today.

Hey Stone Cold...What do you think of that?

I think it comic! Nay, actually I think it tragic. David was once a great congressman. Then the GOP took over, he got a taste of real power, and become one of the "good old boys". Now he's a rubber stamp for the White House.

A lot of Republicans are upset with Drieier over illegal immigration and trade. He even has a challenger in the GOP primary. I found this today on that very subject: Sardo Sounds Off on Immigration, Trade (and blasts Dreier)

Let's go over this:

1. You allege that conservatives support Kaloogian and not Jones
2. I show very clearly that your assertion is crap.
3. You can't argue the point -- because your claim had no basis in fact, you just decided to spout off -- so you quibble with the conservative credentials of ONE of the people I mentioned.

Can't ANY of the Kaloogian supporters address the issue honestly? You people disgust me.

Yup. Conservatives tend to evoke that emotion in liberals.

One of the beauties of being conservative is not worrying to much about how liberals feel.

We just assume they are going to be angry and upset most all of the time. It's their nature.

Do you read anything people say to you? Why on earth should I restate what was eloquently said by others?

I think it has been proven that Howard is supported by hard-line Conservatives, and Jones by the "squishes".

Arnold? Pete Wilson? Those are conservatives?

You lost the argument, and don't have the common sense to back down.

The facts are louder than your rhetoric!

I guess where we would disagree is on the notion of "who ar conservatives supporting." You would probably characterize it as Jones has a strong conservative following, maybe not as strong as Kaloogian's, but he holds his own.

I would assert that conservatives supporting Jones is the exception, not the rule.

As was posted by someone earlier, Dick Riordan was endorsed by a number of conservatives who thought he was the 'best' candidate to run against Davis. Some have again made that argument about Jones being the 'best' to run against Boxer.

I'll agree with William Rusher (publisher of National Review for decades. Here's how he describes the layout of the land as it relates to Kaloogian in his column that's been published in Human Events and at World Net Daily:

But that leaves a fourth contender, whom conservative Republicans have rallied around.

He is Howard Kaloogian, a former assemblyman from the San Diego area, who played a key role in launching the recall effort that toppled Democratic Gov. Gray Davis. He has received endorsements from an impressive number of leading conservatives, both in California and at the national level. - the emphasis added is by ME not by Rusher... FYI

Here's the link:
CLICK HERE for Rusher's Column at World Net Daily

Now on the issue of Kaloogian people disgusting you... well I hope not. Because if Jones wins we'll have to work together to beat Boxer. And if Kaloogian wins we'll need you and other Jones' supporters ourselves.

Don't worry, the Schwarzenegger people disgusted me too. ("McClintock's career is finished" - what the hell is that supposed to mean?") IMO, way too many CaliFReepers carry around a shank stabbing anyone to their right -- or left, depending on what side they start on.

Like I said, I'm voting for Burr, but I would like to see y'all nominate the most conservative electable. I appreciate that you have the "fighter" argument but I disagree.
