(Excerpt) Read more at arizonacapitoltimes.com ...
I encourage those Freepers in the AZ 8th district to visit Jesses web site at: http://www.votejessekelly.com/ to find out more. The site was assembled quickly so that it would be available at the time of his announcement so it is not as detailed as it will be in the weeks to come but it will give you a good basic insight into him and his positions. There is also a nice picture of him with my lovely daughter and new grandson. (smile)
He will be in a tough fight against Dem. Incumbent Gabrielle Giffords and all the money the DNC will toss her way. So if any AZ Freepers feel the desire I am sure he would appreciate and welcome any volunteers, contributions, encouragement, prayers, and anything else you would offer.
Please excuse my shameless rant but I am so proud of Jesse and my daughter for making this commitment to do something pro-active to make our Country a better place for my grandson.
Needless I am partial to his name and him being a Marine. BIG SMILE
Good news. We need to support this Marine 100%.
We also need someone to run against Juan McCain.
McPain and ALL the rest of ‘em...
I bet I can count on ONE HAND the number of Conservatives in the Senate!
and unless we start replacing all these career politician RINO’s & ‘Rats and do so ASAP, we're soon not gonna have a country to vote in!
Him being a Marine is why I gave him permission to marry my daughter since I am partial also.
P.S. Love your tagline!
I'm woefully ignorant of the Republican Party structure in Arizona. A state with a Senator McCain and a Sheriff Arpaio leaves a lot to the imagination.
Good luck to Jesse!
Hmmm, I now find myself wondering if my own Marine son-in-law might be interested in running for office when he returns to civilian life.
Very apropos these days. LOL
Take the fight to them. We need more military men and less lawyers in the Congress.
Congrats to you, CY. Gabby will give Jesse a run for his money. She is solidly backed by the Press here in CD8 and she is politically savvy enough to appear to be a Centrist when she can get away with it.
She is everyone’s buddy, ‘fighting’ for whatever particular cause appears to be important at the moment.
I’ll check out Jesse’s site, I know a few people he’s going to need to be in contact with.
*As you know, Mr. Kelly wouldn’t stand a chance with the California Republican Party.*
Interesting, Of San Diego’s 5 congressmen, 3 are conservative Republicans.
Including Marine Capt. Duncan D. Hunter in his 30s and served several tours in Iraq and Afgh.
For some reason, military personnel are not having luck in the elections right now...I can’t explain it.
“As you know, Mr. Kelly wouldn’t stand a chance with the California Republican Party. They’d support a communist before they’d support a man like Kelly.”
So will Arizona’s betraying, McCain loving GOP. How do you think Gaby the ditz ever got elected here? The GOP gave her the seat because they hated Randy Graf, who beat their annointed Rino in the primary and was opposed to open borders.
Thank you HiJinx!
You are right about Giffords but with prayer and the help of good people like you we can give her a good run and, lord willing, prevail.
I agree. We need to get vets to run in more seats. Ike was one of our best Presidents. He played golf most of the time but things ran pretty smoothly. The last President to really protect our borders and warn us about the defense industry getting to powerful. Today it would be lawyers, hedge funds, ACORN, La Raza, CAIR and other anti-American groups.
So that’s your beautiful daughter on Jesse’s Facebook pic? I’m meeting him for lunch on Friday....I’m chair of LD 26 and the pcs in my district will do EVERYTHING we can to help him.
Jesse was at my last LD 26 meeting. I’ve been in touch with him; saw him last night at the U of A for a CR event (David Horowitz, guest speaker) and will be meeting him for lunch this Friday for a strategy meeting.
He spoke at a LD 28 meeting last Saturday, and I’m sure he will be spending a LOT of time in LD 30 as well.
I promise the PCs in LD 26 will do EVERY thing we can to help him; problem is where do we get 2-3 million?
