IMPORTANT GOP House Primary Races: And How You Can Help (Midwest)

Posted on 05/09/2014 5:56:10 PM PDT by campaignPete R-CT

THIS IS FOR THE MIDWEST (NORTHEAST and SOUTH is in a separate thread and West coming later, see links below)

There are numerous important House Primary Races! And places where we can WIN! PLEASE contribute! And if you can't contribute money ... the least we can do is go to their pages and give them a "like" or a tweet. All of these candidates are involved in primaries that are close (or could be close) against generally more moderate or liberal Republicans. All of these districts are winnable in November.

West Virginia:
ALEX MOONEY, WEST VIRGINIA-2, May 13th .... Open Seat

ALEX MOONEY -- FACEBOOK -- TWITTER -- DONATE

GOA: "Gun Owners of America Political Victory Fund endorsed Alex Mooney, conservative Republican candidate for Congress in West Virginia’s Second Congressional District." “Gun Owners of America is excited to endorse Alex as we know he embodies the spirit of West Virginia’s own motto, ‘Mountaineers always free.’ "


Iowa: I sm listing 2 candidates in the IA-3 race
MONTE SHAW, IOWA-3, JUNE 3RD ... Open Seat

MATT SCHULTZ, IOWA-3, JUNE 3RD ... Open Seat ... 2 CONSERVATIVES trying to win this 6-way race.

Monte Shaw

Matt Schultz

Matt Schultz -- FACEBOOK -- TWITTER -- DONATE

Both candidates are getting conservative groups to support them. Hopefully, the folks in the district will do what is necessary to put one of them in first place on June 3rd.


Michigan:
DAVE TROTT, MICHIGAN-11, August 5th .... taking on incumbent GOP Kerry Bentivolio

DAVE TROTT -- FACEBOOK -- TWITTER -- DONATE

"I am a conservative who truly believes in cutting spending, lowering taxes and creating jobs. I am an outsider who is not beholden to any special interest. What you see is what you get. I will not tell you one thing and do another. There is too much debt, too much spending and too few jobs because of those types of politicians. We need a true conservative as our Congressman, someone who stands by the principles they campaigned on."


Michigan:
BRIAN ELLIS, MICHIGAN-3, August 5th .... taking on incumbent GOP Amash

BRIAN ELLIS -- FACEBOOK -- TWITTER -- DONATE

"We deserve a Representative who will vote consistently to help hardworking taxpayers and defend our West Michigan values. I believe cutting spending, reducing the tax burden, repealing Obamacare, and expanding American energy sources will create more opportunity and hope for West Michigan families. I believe life is a precious gift from God that we have an obligation to protect. I believe our Constitution and Declaration of Independence are the frameworks for the greatest, most prosperous, and most generous nation ever on the face of the earth."


Michigan:
John Moolenaar, MICHIGAN-4, August 5th .... OPEN SEAT


JOHN MOOLENAAR -- FACEBOOK -- TWITTER -- DONATE

This race is just getting started, for Dave Camp's seat. Moolenaar is running against Paul Mitchell. The race needs further research by us. "I will be a strong conservative voice for the hard working families of mid and northern Michigan. In Michigan I have fought against overreaching government policies that are killing jobs and over burdening individuals,” said Senator Moolenaar."


Michigan:
Tom McMillin, MICHIGAN-8, August 5th .... OPEN SEAT


TOM MCMILLIN -- FACEBOOK -- TWITTER -- DONATE

This race is just getting started, for Mike Roger's seat. McMillin is running against Mike Bishop. The race needs further research by us.

McMillin's argument is here.

NORTHEAST and SOUTH This will be updated periodically. The rest of country ... threads will be posted within a few days and a link will be placed below in this thread.

Again, the criteria: the candidate must have a legit shot in NOV in their district and they are also in a tough primary fight against a candidate with lesser conservative appeal (or even a liberal).

Donate today. If thou art broke, send $14 for victory in '14.

Monte Shaw has Steve King’s brother on his team. So he sounds good.

Kerry Bentivolio is better than Dave Trott.

Kerry is a hardliner on immigration. The last thing we need is an open borders businessman buying the seat and staying in it for a decade.

As I’ve cited, Bentivolio needs to pick up the pace on his fundraising. He trails both Trott and the Democrat nominee in that department. I’m not strictly opposed to Bentivolio, though the MI Paulbot Amash has GOT to go. If he wants to serve as the Press Secretary for the Dictator of Iran, he should move there.

Bentivolio worked as a designer in the automotive industry for twenty years, followed by teaching for fifteen years in schools and institutions. He is an Army veteran who served in the Vietnam War, the Gulf War, and the Iraq War. He is married to Karen Bentivolio, a registered nurse, and resides in Milford, Michigan.

Washington post gives the 11th district seat (Bentivolio) a 99% chance of staying republican.

Creek, Trott is up here cuz it is a group effort ... with further research ... looks like he will come down.

we are only posting candidates where there is a strong consensus that the opponent isn’t worth it.

(the Blaze)Awkward: Former IRS Head Says He ‘Really Can’t Recite the Constitution’ When Pressed by GOP Rep.

Things got awkward during the House Oversight Committee’s second IRS hearing on Wednesday when Rep. Kerry Bentivolio (R-MI), while seemingly making a larger point, couldn’t get former IRS Commissioner Doug Shulman to acknowledge certain amendments to the Constitution.

After confirming that the IRS requires ethics training, Bentivolio was trying to figure out if the IRS required training on the Constitution. He may have got his answer despite Shulman’s response saying he couldn’t give one.

“Did you study the Constitution?” Bentivolio asked.

“I went to law school,” Shulman responded.

“You went to law school. Did you study the Constitution?”

“I believe I took Constitutional law, but I’m not prepared to take an exam at this time,” Shulman said with a chuckle. “Meaning I’ll answer any of your question but I can’t promise that I’m an expert.”


Kerry Bentivolio newsletter on the border and immigration.

“What you’re seeing here is a shameless political ploy to buy new voters. Democrats want the votes and Republicans the cheap labor … unfortunately the status quo will be maintained,” “Immigration reform shouldn’t be about buying off lawbreakers so they’ll consider becoming Republican. It’s about letting in people who want to become Americans and obey American laws. What kind of country will we be if we reward people for breaking the law?”

“The Senate is already caving to grant amnesty to millions of illegal immigrants and congressmen like myself in the House will be the only thing between maintaing the rule of law and virtually dissolving our border,” he wrote.

Nothing wrong with that.

This ain’t my day. I’ve done gone and posted an endorsement for the guy running against a pro-life Santa. And once you’ve posted something on the web, it lives forever.

I just went to Santas website and endorsed him. But I will not volunteer.

Almost finished...
Fellow Patroit,
