Rep. Cannon Finally Fails To Hide Amnesty Record
NumbersUSA ^ | June 25, 2008 | Roy Beck

Rep. Chris Cannon -- who lost in a 60%-40% Primary election landslide yesterday -- had survived several previous Primary challenges by fooling enough people into believing that he was not really an amnesty champion.

The seven-term incumbent lost to Jason Chaffetz, 41, a former chief of staff for Utah's governor who was running for public office for the first time and who was outspent 7-1. Chaffetz ran as a True Immigration Reformer, favoring deep cuts in legal immigration and vigorous Attrition Through Enforcement measures.

This should be a warning to incumbent RINOs that voters won’t forget the treachery that Congress failed to close the border.

Skiffy RINO, I was complaining about this clown over a year ago when he was running his pro-amnesty ads on Spanish-speaking radio stations and telling them to vote for him because it was easy for illegals to skirt the law. I’m happy he’s voted out, but this skunk should be in jail.

I’ve been trying to promote the idea that a third party targeting RINOS in Congress on this issue would bring about great success in turning our country around.

American Sovereignty And Security Party!!

Target certain states where RINOS and open border Dems rule.

Stop Juan McCain and his friends from allowing the invasion to continue!

Target the presidency later (after party is established)

Think it out!!!!!!

P.S. I got my proof today!

In a perfect world, that would happen, but I understand Lindsay "Goober" Graham won his primary. It's hard to believe the voters of Utah are smarter than those from South Carolina, but it seems to be the case.

At this point, I'm having to hope that the Rat wins in SC this November. Sad.

Couldn’t have happened at a more convenient time - this puts McCain, et at at the RNC, on notice that conservative Americans still do NOT want amnesty no matter what they call it.

Maybe those in Utah aren't smarter than So. Carolinians, just that they've been chocking on so very many "compadres" in their jobs, schools, emergency rooms and social services and So. Carolina hasn't faced the influx just yet.

Wait 'til a while, and Goober Graham might get his come-upance yet.

He runs every 6 years NOT every 2 like Cannon.

Hopefully getting this RINO turd out is just the 1st step in ridding the Republican party of a whole lot more of his ilk.

Let’s call it two OBL traitors down:

Spence Abraham and Chris Cannon.

Any ideas for an encore?

Several Utah media outlets were saying that Chris Cannon was “one of the most conservative” congressmen. Oh really? So high taxes and looking the other way at illegal immigration are conservative values now? Gosh, where have I been?
