Cannon ousted in Republican primary [in Utah]
Politico.com ^ | June 25, 2008 | Josh Kraushaar

Posted on 06/25/2008 5:55:52 AM PDT by Aristotelian

Republican voters in Utah ousted Rep. Chris Cannon in Tuesday’s GOP primary, expressing their dissatisfaction with the six-term congressman over his left-of-center positions on immigration by nominating a challenger who made crackdowns on illegal immigration a central part of his platform.

Cannon was trounced by Jason Chaffetz, the former chief of staff to Gov. Jon Huntsman (R-Utah.) With 93 percent of precincts reporting, Cannon trails Chaffetz by 20 points – 60 to 40 percent. The AP has called the race for Chaffetz.

On the GREAT news in the article: Thank God that some Republicans SOMEWHERE are starting to take notice and keep their party from falling apart.

Since I’ve left the Republican party and am an Independent and won’t give any money to the GOP, I’d still like to support conservative R’s like this guy. Does anyone know of a central web site that you can go to specifically to support conservative candidates financially, that go directly to the candidate? Thanks.

Right here is proof that “we the people” did not really “choose” McCain, he was manipulated in to where he is today. The original pick was Rooty, he tanked, so McCain was reborn to make sure an open borders shill was the only choice we would have.

I did not fail to take notice in the primaries that tough on the borders conservatives were ignored and treated like dirt. On Purpose!

The difference is: Obama only voted on the legislation. McCain wrote it with Kennedy (McCain-Kennedy; aka, Comprehensive Immigration Reform; aka, Amnesty for Illegals) and then tried to get it passed in 2006, spring 2007 and summer 2007.

I missed the primary yesterday. I was attending the birth of my brand new babygirl granddaughter!

This news is the second best news I’ve had since yesterday.

We almost defeated Cannon last election. If I remember correctly (and I do) this site supported Cannon in his run against a freeper in 2006. In fact that Freeper, John Jacobs got banned during the election process....

....Just sayin.’

Goober Graham, Bob Barr, and Chris Cannon had a chance with their service on the House Impeachment Committee to win national favor with conservatives. But as we now know these three were not all that conservative when and where it counts.

I thought when he changed his mind on offshore drilling I might could vote for him, then I heard him talk about global warming and obscene oil profits...

Frankly I don’t trust him on judges enough to even vote for him on that basis. That is probably as big a lie as his “i saw the light” on immigration last summer.

The House Impeachment Managers will always have my thanks for having the guts to move forward with the impeachment in the face of overwhelming opposition (what they did is far more "courageous" than Katherine Harris getting worshiped by some freepers for simply doing her job and certifying the winner of her state).

But while Cannon's role in the impeachment trial undeniably gave him a place in the history books, he sadly committed political suicide by continuing to push for amnesty and deride the GOP base. This election really took me by surprise though. Cannon had a much higher profile primary race in 2006, and he won that one -- yet lost this one to a little known opponent.

One of the reasons why Graham and McCain might have stayed in office while Cannon got the boot is that Graham was smart enough to say he 'got the message" and would now sponsor legislation to "secure the border" the first. He then avoided any more talk about amnesty during the election season (McCain has too, though freeper Chicagolady discovered he has held "closed door" meeting with "hispanic groups" that he doesn't want us to know about) Cannon, on the other hand, remained unrepentant and defiant in pushing for "normalization" of the "undocumented" crowd, which had the same effect of Lieberman standing with Bush on Iraq during the Dem primary.

Also, Graham's primary challenger sought to "prove" Graham was too liberal by tieing him to McCain, nevermind the fact that McCain WON the South Carolina primary. I don't like that McCain carried S.C. either, but election results don't lie. It's pretty stupid to say someone is "out of touch" with his state by supporting the candidate that their state ended up selecting. The only thing it shows is that the challenger is the one in denial about how his state votes. You didn't see Cannon's primary opponent claim Cannon was "out of touch with Utah" because he backed Mitt Romney, did you?

As for Bob Barr, I think he did continue to prove he was a staunch conservative for the rest of his congressional career, but ever since he got defeated in 2002, he drank the libertarian party kool-aid and has since disavowed all the legislation he supported that conflicts the LP agenda. You have to remember the LP actually ran attack ads against Barr calling him "the worst drug warrior in Congress", and Barr has changed his positions so radically that he now wants to be THE president who will "end the war on drugs". And although he was the no. #1 Clinton critic in the House, he now actually says Clinton was a better President than Bush! Scary. Barr pimping for the party that worked to defeat him is like something out of the twilight zone.

That being said, I do think a lot of the House impeachment managers who risked their political careers to do what was right deserve more support than they get from freepers. Many of those freepers who promised to "never forget" the impeachment seem to have forgotten by the next election cycle and were bashing Henry Hyde for being wrong on one gun bill but supporting Clintonite scum like Peter King. And many of these freepers who whine about amnesty have only themselves to blame because they backed pro-amnesty politicians in the primary.

Bill McCollum had across the board A+ ratings from anti-illegal immigration groups, and many here derided him as an "unelectable loser" and a "RINO", and tossed him overboard in favor of "true conservative" Mel Martinez. Martinez CLAIMED he opposed amnesty, but many of us rightly pointed out DURING the primary election that his ACTIONS from the last 10 years showed this wasn't the case and that he was a Bush sock puppet and liberal trial lawyer who "used to" regularly donate to socialist Dems. Of course we were ignored and the "true conservative" Mel Martinez won the primary. Two years later, "unelectable" Bill McCollum won a statewide office during a big Dem year, and won by a far higher margin than Martinez had. Ironic, eh?

When it comes to the House impeachment, I will never forget what Tom Delay did in getting the impeachment vote taken and passed. He filled in the vaccuum created when the Clinton politics of personal destruction team took out Newt and then Livingston as speaker. They couldn’t and didn’t touch the Hammer. As far as bashing Hyde, you were not talking about me. Hyde was an original and true blue conservative and I can think of no one in the House who crusaded longer against abortion than Hyde.

Chaffetz is Huntsman's former chief of staff. Huntsman is Ahnold lite, complete with carbon credits. Let's hope Chaffetz isn't just another rino spacetaker like his former boss. I have very low expectations after following world order Huntsman's antics for the last four years. If nothing, it's nice to see Cannon handed his hat over the border issue... now whether there's any followup in store is another matter entirely.
