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

Posted on 05/15/2014 1:52:48 PM PDT by campaignPete R-CT

THIS IS FOR THE SOUTH AND MIDWEST
(NORTHEAST, WEST, AND CALIFORNIA are in separate threads and updates are coming, see links below)
This is an update of previous threads.

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.


Georgia:
BARRY LOUDERMILK, GEORGIA-11, MAY 20th ... Open Seat

Endorsed by: Family Research Council, Concerned Women of America, Freedom Works, Senate Conservatives Fund

Barry Loudermilk -- FACEBOOK -- TWITTER -- DONATE

Loudermilk has a shot to sneak past opponent Bob Barr or opponent Ed Lindsey to finish in 2nd place and make the run-off. He appears to have more support than fellow conservative Tricia Pridemore, who is likely to finish in 4th place. The district is R+19, so this primary is a big deal.


Alabama:
Scott Beason, ALABAMA-6, June 3rd ... 2 CONSERVATIVES trying to get into the run-off in this OPEN SEAT.

GARY PALMER, ALABAMA-6, June 3rd ... 2 CONSERVATIVES trying to get into the run-off in this OPEN SEAT.
Endorsed by: Gary Bauer, Ralph Reed, Tony Perkins


Scott Beason

Scott Beason -- FACEBOOK -- TWITTER -- DONATE


Gary Palmer

Gary Palmer -- FACEBOOK -- TWITTER -- DONATE

Conservatives Palmer and Mathis need to get into the run-off in this crowded primary. I think you will find that their opponents Brooke and DeMarco are not conservative enough for FreeRepublic, Alabama-style. Conservative Chad Matthis has spent his campaign resources attacking Palmer and Beason. Article on AL-6 poll is here.



Florida:
Lorenzo Palomares-Starbuck, FLORIDA-26, AUGUST 26th ... Winner takes on vulnerable DEM Rep. Joe Garcia in this R+4 district


Lorenzo Palomares-Starbuck -- FACEBOOK -- TWITTER -- DONATE

Opponent Curbelo is a big favorite to win the primary, but there are still 3 months to beat him. Either Lorenzo, with his grassroots campaign, or Dade County Commission Chairman Joe Martinez will make a challenge. Frontrunner Curbelo is a vocal supporter of "same-sex marriage".

Curbelo: "I have many gay friends. They are hard-working people. They love this country. And quite frankly I think most of them would be Republican if some in our party wouldn't express themselves in such an unfortunate way." Read more here.

Palomares-Starbuck: "Free enterprise is protected under the Constitution by the freedom of Association clause, under the First Amendment, under the right to privacy among other, a tax law scheme that is predicated on income base taxation tends to discriminate against those who endeavor to create wealth in the society."


Iowa: I am listing 2 candidates in the IA-3 race
MONTE SHAW, IOWA-3, JUNE 3RD ... Open Seat
Endorsed By: Greg Ganske, Former Congressman, Jon King, brother of U.S. Rep. Steve King

MATT SCHULTZ, IOWA-3, JUNE 3RD ... Open Seat ... 2 CONSERVATIVES trying to win this 6-way race.
Endorsed by: Rick Santorum, Tea Party Express, Senate Conservative Fund



Monte Shaw

Monte Shaw -- FACEBOOK -- TWITTER -- DONATE


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 over opponents Young and Zaun.


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.

SOUTH & MIDWEST
This will continue to be updated periodically. The rest of country ... threads will be updated ... links are 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 broke, send $14 for victory in '14.

The GOP should give at least some token support to Terry Bowman for the Michigan 12th district seat against Debbie Dingell. Its an awfully high hurdle but if it costs the democrats some money that should be enough.

For all the work he put in for RTW in Michigan, this is one union worker who deserves some support.

“What good is a like or a tweet”

ping to ConMan55 ... the originator of the ping/tweet contribution.

Actually, end of quarter reports press releases often include a report of how many individuals donated during the quarter .... so a bunch of $5 contributors is good publicity cuz they just report the $ total and the number. Any House candidate with over 400 donors is impressive. But the Like/Tweet numbers .... it is unclear what the impact is. ConMan??

Same with tweeting.

What do we make of the controversy about Beason ... just tell D.C. to screw? Palmer isn’t getting much traction I think.

And which candidate in IA will make a surge?

Hmm well it appears he’s stuck his foot in his mouth in the past. I would tend to agree with Blackwell that we could do without that, but I have reject his choice, Doc Mathis, because of the false attacks.

I’d probably vote for Palmer if I lived there.

Just like wearing a colored ribbon to show your support for gays rights, breast cancer etal.

It therefore is exactly what I first posted, it makes you "feel warm and fuzzy" just like a good liberal would.

Like and tweet are two ways to say "attaboy" but the pol still just wants your money {or if you live in his district, your vote}.

I like you conservativeman, boy do I feel good now.

Michigan 4 - Peter Konetchy is also running. He's running as a constitutionalist conservative.

Michigan 8 - That district is just north of me. Tom McMillin is backed by Justin Amash. Mike Bishop is backed by Mike Rogers. Rogers and Amash hate each other.

Lynn Jenkins was reputed to be a social liberal or moderate—specifically, she had a “pro-choice” record on abortion—but her voting record has been good in Congress, and actually has been perfect on abortion. Of course, most of the abortion votes in Congress sibce she got elected have been in the context of taxpayer financing, which is something that even many “pro-choicers” oppose.

Conservative State Senator Neil Riser decides against a second run for Louisiana’s 5th district.

Meanwhile, RINO incumbent Vance “I will screw my friend’s wife” McAllister continues to dicker on whether he will actually retire, as he previously said he would. And one Zach Dasher, a relative of the reality tv family who idiotically helped McAllister win, announces his run for the seat.

That's a pretty stupid argument if you ask me. Like Christie quasi-endorsing Obama because of Hurricane relief to NJ. Bush, McCain or Romney would have let NJ rot I'm to suppose? Give me a break.

Well, Taylor "former" democrat now a RINO, thankfully he failed to make a runoff against Palazzo. Palazzo, for his part, endorsed Cochran way back in December.

Meanwhile, Chuck Woolrey endorses McDaniel. I'd take him over Farve and Taylor, 2 democrats. Our course Cochran's strategy and only hope is to win with democrat votes.

Wow. Well he did pardon Favre’s brother but just to clear his record, long after he’d been released after serving only a couple months for violating his probation. Still doesn’t look good. Doubtlessly Favre’s borther has benefited from no longer having a criminal record.

“Meanwhile, Chuck Woolrey endorses McDaniel. I’d take him over Farve and Taylor, 2 democrats.”

I’m glad to see that my early endorsement of McDaniel has proven to be the right decision, with Chuck Woolery’s endorsement providing additional confirmation. But we can’t be 100% sure until we hear from Wink Martindale.

Ha, I didn’t know he was still alive.

Poll of Louisiana 6th by the Glascock group

Convicted Felon Rat Ex-Governor Edwin Edwards apparently still has enough name recognition that he leads the pack with 32%. He is the only name democrat in the race.

Republican Paul Dietzel and RINO State Sen. Dan Claitor are tied with 16%.

Edwards trails both by 14 points for the runoff, I think that’s generous, he has a zero% chance of winning.

There is a third Republican in the race, Garrett Graves, I can’t seem to find if he was included in the poll. It is essential that Dietzel or Graves makes the runoff.

I wouldn’t go that far. I wouldn’t have supported Edwards over David Duke either, like the State GOP officially did, F them both. I’d sooner smear dog doo on the ballot and cast that.
