Posted on 02/26/2014 5:56:59 AM PST by cotton1706
The Tea Party Leadership Fund, a Tea Party-aligned Political Action Committee (PAC), on Wednesday will endorse J.D. Winteregg for Congress in Ohios eighth congressional districta seat currently held by House Speaker John Boehner.
Weve undertaken a long, deliberative process in deciding who to throw our weight behind to unify conservatives behind an alternative to John Boehner, radios Rusty Humphries, the spokesman for the Tea Party Leadership Funds Primary Boehner campaign, said in a statement provided to Breitbart News ahead of its public release. It was a tough decision with two great candidates, but in the end, theres one man left standing, and thats high school teacher J.D. Winteregg, who is a credible challenger to the Speaker of the House.
As John Boehner has risen to the heights of power over 25 years in Washington, he has forgotten his roots, his promises and the people of the 8th district of Ohio, Humphries added. We will never give a free pass to politicians who ignore the will of the people, their district and his own party by betraying their commitments to control spending, protect our borders, all while cutting benefits of our military veterans while fighting to preserve benefits for members of congress and their staffs.
A political newcomer, Winteregg is a local high school teacher who moonlights as an adjunct professor at a university near his home in Troy, Ohio.
The Tea Party Leadership Fund announced a little over a month ago that it would spend $25,000 in an ad campaign and candidate vetting process looking for a candidate to back against Boehner in the May 6 primary in Ohio. They also launched a petition drive at PrimaryBoehner.com.

Support these TEA Party challengers with your campaign funds. The incumbents have massive amounts of money from the Chamber of Amnesty and other big lobbying groups, so they do not need grass roots support.
If Boehner wins the primary, all conservatives vote for the Democrat. Simple, but effective. We can afford t lose a House seat in order to lose Boehner.
“If Boehner wins the primary, all conservatives vote for the Democrat. Simple, but effective. We can afford t lose a House seat in order to lose Boehner.”
Here is the problem with that philosophy.
Once the rat owns the seat, he will never give it up. The party will cheat and do everything illegal for the rat to retain the seat.
This is why the senate is crucial. I don’t advocate voting for the RINO, but if our candidate loses in the primary, at least the RINO is probably the lesser of the two evils.
at least the RINO is probably the lesser of the two evils.
I am so freakin’ tired of having to choose between the lesser of two evils. That’s like saying, I’d rather have a crack head who is a thief, and dealing drugs, buy the house next door to me than a child molester. At least the crack head is probably the lesser of two evils. No thanks, I’d reject both choices and I’d choose to move elsewhere. I think it’s time for Conservatives to “move elsewhere”. Someone, with the wherewithal, needs to start “The Conservative Party of America”.
Little by little, the Tea Party gets wiser and harder to beat. A long deliberative process should help eliminate one issue candidates, and make sure that the candidate who is to be supported can give intelligent answers on subjects of rape and abortion.
Definitely understand that. However, in saying that, we are no longer talking about a liberal republican or a liberal democrat. We are talking about a liberal republican and a Marxist democrat.
It is my contention that we are no longer dealing with two political parties so much as we are dealing with three ideologies. Conservatism, Liberalism and a congruence of Facism/Socialism/Marxism.
It’s always been the goal of the far left to move the GOPe further to the left. So we are not getting stuck with a liberal and not a Marxist. Of course we are trying to change that, however in order to do so, we need to label them.
LIV understand labels. We should use them.

What happened to those seats in 2010 and 2012? Some of them went conservative instead of the previous decade in the hands of RINOs and Democrats.
The GOP can afford to lose house seats. Kinzinger, Ellmers, Schock, Grimm and a few others would be good targets. Boehner’s lapdogs are good targets if not Boehner himself.
If McConnell loses to Grimes could mean amnesty momentum is less likely. McConnell has supported amnesty in 1986,2000 and 2006. I do believe that targeting some really horrible RINOs in the house is best though.
