Tea Party Express Celebrates Successful Primary Season

The Tea Party Express celebrated another election victory tonight, marking the end to a very successful primary campaign season.

Below is a list of those who we’ve endorsed as ‘heroes’ or spent money.

The Tea Party Express also targeted a number of candidates who ultimately ended up losing/retiring.  We launched a $250,000 “Defeat Bart Stupak” campaign and brought our Tea Party Express 3-bus convoy into his district with 6 tea party rallies in his congressional district (the most we’ve ever held in a politician’s district). 

After spending $60,000 on radio and TV ads, Stupak announced his retirement, right while we were in the middle of a rally against him in Escanaba, MI (in the Upper Peninsula, and again in Stupak’s district).  We announced we were targeting Arlen Specter, and produced a TV ad for Pat Toomey, and then Specter left the GOP and then lost in the Democrat Primary. 

We also announced we were targeting Democrat Congressman Alan Mollohan of West Virginia, and he lost too.  And most notably, beyond spending over $550,000 supporting Sharron Angle’s GOP primary campaign (launching it when she was at just 5% in the polls), we’ve also waged $500,000 campaign against Harry Reid and expect to spend at least several hundred thousand dollars more to defeat him too.

Here’s our Heroe’s list of the candidates we’ve endorsed – most of them big winners:

Brothers ... Keep up the excellent work. We are working in our regions and your support amplifies our efforts.

We might be able to do it without you, but thank the good Lord we have you to buttress our struggles.

Not many of the big, national outfits understand just how important your participation is, but we do!

And “thank you” is frankly, just not enough to express our gratitude.

We at least, and I know that I may speak for thousands of us, when you come to our area, we owe you dinner and a beer.

You are appreciated. Fact!

Minnick took the opportunity to reject the endorsement and insult the Tea Party movement, all the while as there was a far more worthy candidate inV aughn Ward.
Are we going to have to purge the Tea Party Express next?

You are welcome!

And wait there is more. LOL

I posted this in breaking news because I am going to add a lot to it.

Joe Wierzbicki - Tea Party Express Strategist - wrote this message to the list of people that support the Tea Party Express:


THANK YOU SO MUCH!  READ BELOW FOR DETAILS

The Atlantic reports today that "Tea Party Express Figures to Make Good On Its Pledge" - detailing how we once again managed to deliver on our promised expenditures to support a constitutional conservative for office.  Because of your support he cites a new factor in electoral politics:  "The Tea Party Express Uncertainty Principle" because we've surprised the establishment time and again.  And the thanks for these successes all go to you.  The complete article is below.

But it gets better.  The Washington Post's E.J. Dionne wrote a column today citing a conversation he had with none other than Liberal RINO Mike Castle.  And here's what Mike Castle had to say about all of you - and all of us on the Tea Party Express team:

Castle, at least, is not in the least bit complacent. “The Tea Party Express, which claims it’s not a political party, is in reality a pretty good political operation,” he said in an interview last night. “This is a more sophisticated political operation than they’ve been given credit for.”

And now here's the report from The Atlantic's Chris Good.  You can access the article directly - HERE.


Tea Party Express Figures to Make Good on Its Pledge

Sep 14 2010, 4:57 PM ET

The Delaware Senate race has seen its ups and downs. The words "Delaware Republican primary" hadn't really entered the consciousness of anyone outside the state as of two weeks ago, and now it's become one of the bigger election stories of the summer.

That's because just two weeks ahead of today's primary, back-bench candidate Christine O'Donnell was endorsed by Tea Party Express--the group that poured hundreds of thousands of Tea Party-donated dollars into Nevada and Alaska to deliver two big election upsets this year--which pledged to spend $250,000 on her behalf. After that, all Hell broke loose.

*snip*

At this point, the group figures to spend all of that $250,000. As of its last disclosure with the Federal Election Commission on Saturday, it had spent just over $215,000, leaving ample room to meet or surpass its pledge by the end of today.

It's also attracted the endorsements of two conservative stars, Sarah Palin and South Carolina Sen. Jim DeMint, who offered their backing on Thursday and Friday of last week. Palin, for her part, has recorded a robocall and radio ad for O'Donnell's campaign.

Wow, eyedigress, that is HUGE!

Just a sample of America.

There are literally MILLIONS of Americans that are aligned with the principles of the Tea Party.

Because it's gone too far away from what our Country was designed to be---A Constitutional Republic with the people in charge!

Thanks so much for the insight into a small part of what is going on in the United States at this time. Awesome!

Here is a message put out by the TPX yesterday:

Tea Party Express Issues Election Day Statement

on Delaware U.S. Senate Race

(WILMINGTON) -- The Tea Party Express issued the following statement today regarding the U.S. Senate race in Delaware:

"As voters head to the polls in Delaware today, the news media and many in the political establishment have sought to cast tonight's election returns as a lose-lose proposition for the tea party movement.

"If Conservative Republican Christine O'Donnell wins, the news media and political elite insist that this will be a loss for the Tea Party movement, as it will surely mean a win for the Democrats in November, and increase their chances for retaining a majority in the U.S. Senate.

"But wait, if Liberal RINO Mike Castle wins, the news media and political elite similarly insist that this will be a loss for the Tea Party movement, as it will mean the establishment has defeated the Tea Party-backed candidate.

"So under the logic of those in the media and the political establishment, the Tea Party movement loses either way.  Nice try, but we at the Tea Party Express aren't buying this narrative.

"The Tea Party Express, Gov. Sarah Palin, the Independence Hall Tea Party PAC, and Diamond State Tea Party all endorsed Christine O'Donnell because she best represented the principles important to the Tea Party movement: limited government and a return to the constitutional principles this country was founded on, but which our political leaders have increasingly strayed from.

"It used to be the accepted notion that primaries were about allowing voters in a political party to support the best candidate who represented the members of that party.  Now, however, we're told voters are stupid if they don't instead play the role of political strategist and support candidates based on a political chess game, regardless of their principles.

"We here at the Tea Party Express trust the voters to follow their hearts and to stick to their principles and beliefs.  When Ronald Reagan waged his campaign for president in the 1980 election cycle, the same political elitists and journalists who are deriding Christine O'Donnell as 'unelectable' similarly sneered that an 'extremist' like Reagan could never be elected.  As a result, John Anderson from Illinois was egged on to offer a more 'reasonable' choice in the general election campaign.  Reagan won, Anderson and Jimmy Carter lost, and the political elite and journalists had egg on their faces.

"Supporting the most liberal Republican Member of Congress, Mike Castle, is not a viable option for constitutional conservatives.  Those who have urged support for Castle do so from the most crass and soulless political calculation where principles are irrelevant, as it is a zero sum gain.

"We've tried this route of electing Republicans to government who didn't believe in their own party's platform, when we had a Republican Congress and a Republican in the White House.  What we got was massive spending, higher deficits, bailouts, and a significant increase in the size, scope, and power of the government.

"We here in Tea Party movement are trying to change the nature of our leaders in Washington, and that means dumping failed and corrupt politicians like Mike Castle who trade their votes based on the campaign contributions of well-heeled lobbyists or the arm twisting of political party leaders.  This is the very reason Mike Castle has attempted to hold at least four positions on ObamaCare - because at each time his primary concern was not what was good for this nation, but what was good for Mike Castle's political ambitions.

"When term-limited Governor Castle wanted to prolong his career feeding off the public trough, and remaining a member of the ruling class, he orchestrated 'The Switch' with Democrat Congressman Tom Carper that would allow both of them to retain their political power.  It was all about their egos and their power, and the same motivation for Mike Castle continues to this day.

"Mike Castle and his political henchmen continue this crass and shameless behavior to this day.  This year, the Delaware GOP establishment - led by Mike Castle's closest allies and advocates - deliberately chose to not field a Republican candidate for Attorney General in the state of Delaware.  Why?  Because the Democrat Attorney General is a man named Beau Biden, who happens to be the son of Democrat Vice President, Joe Biden. 

"But don't worry say Castle's Republican supporters.  If he wins the GOP nomination for U.S. Senate in Delaware we're supposed to expect him to suddenly become some kind of Republican loyalist, helping to advance a conservative revolution in Congress.

"We here at the Tea Party Express don't buy that for one minute.  Whether it means switching political parties, or voting with the Democrats on more bailouts, Cap & Trade, or for liberal judicial activists for the U.S. Supreme Court, Mike Castle will play to the same political puppet masters he always has, and that's not to Republicans, conservatives, or his constituents.

"The Tea Party Express has won nearly every election it has played an active role in.  Today, the voters of Delaware will decide whether to support the Tea Party Express-backed candidate, Christine O'Donnell.  If they do, that will be a victory for the Tea Party movement, no matter how many pundits or journalists try and argue otherwise.

"The next step is to fight on behalf of these Tea Party candidates in November, and ensure that they once again defy the wishes and predictions of the political establishment, by propelling these constitutional conservatives to victory over their liberal Democrat, big-government opponents.

Minnick's Republican opponent is Raul Labrador.
This, according to the WSJ:
Labrador had the endorsement of Boise’s Tea Party and campaigned as an opponent of the Obama agenda. “My friends, the key to our renewal is liberty,” Labrador told a crowd following his victory early Wednesday morning, according to the Idaho Statesman. “The answer to Obamaism is liberty.”
So in light of this, does the Tea Party Express stand by its endorsement of Minnick?
Do they believe that Minnick is a stronger vote against the 0bama agenda than Labrador?
Right now the polls put Labrador and Minnick in a dead heat.
Is the TPE going to give money to Minnick to help him continue voting for Nanzi Pelousy as Speaker?

Yes, and being as no one in the GOP is interested in making sure all voters are eligible to do so, and will not fight the fraud (ACORN etc), the illegal insurgent criminal alien colonist voters, we must have many more votes than really needed to counteract all of that.

Many primary races are turning out many many more voters than expected, I think in DE it was double what was predicted.

Those were the Conservative voters, the dem votes were waaaayyyy lower than the Patriotic voters.

Tea Party Express Responds to Murkowski Smear of Tea Party Group

The Tea Party Express today responded to statements made by Senator Lisa Murkowski in which she indicated she is exploring a write-in candidacy for Senate to split the vote, and then smeared the Tea Party Express as an "extremist group" that had "hijacked" the Republican Party.

"Senator Murkowski is a sore loser.  Not all the hanging chads in the world can undo the fact that she lost.  After thirty-years of having a Murkowski as Senator, Alaskans voted for change.  The fact that she dishonors the decision of Alaska's voters shows nothing but contempt for the people of Alaska," said Levi Russell, Communications Director of the Tea Party Express. 

"It's time for her to start doing the right thing by volunteering to help Joe Miller win this election for the Republican Party in November," Russell said.

Russell grew up in Alaska and received his education in the state.

It was closed and mid-term normal was 10,000. Best outlook was 30,000. Reality was 60,000 and it tipped the scale.

Conservatives need to understand at 30,000 Castle is in, at 60,000 Castle is out. Speaks volumes.

Yes, and thank you for the accurate figures!

To their detriment, the leftists always estimate crowds of patriots/conservatives way low.

They can look at a crowd of 60,000 people and only see 30,000

And they believe it!

Tsunami anyone?

Let's surf some conservatives into Congress--both houses.

But this endorsement seriously cut into the TPX’s credibility.
It was stupid and blatantly, obnoxiously, political.
Minnick responded like the Democrat he is.
We expect snakes to bite.
But why did the TPX piss on the Tea Party with an endorsement like that?

They have never answered this question. There were two more worthy candidates in the GOP primary. One of them is now Minnick’s opponent.

TPX may have thought they were bring cute and clever by endorsing a token Democrat, but they are toying with an election and real peoples’ lives.

Raul Labrador was born in Peurto Rico, and is a true Reagan conservative. TPX missed a great opportunity to endorse a great candidate. Instead they squandered it on a Nanzi Pelousy supporter, and part-time supporter of Big Government.

The race is tied, and a TPX endorsement muddied the waters.
A Labrador endorsement instead would have tipped this race towards him.
Instead, it helped an endangered Democrat cling on, and remain competitive.

What if Minnick squeaks by because of this?
What if the Republicans come up one vote short of taking the House?
What if the TPX endorsement allows Minnick to cast the tie-breaking vote that returns Nanzi Pelousy to Speaker of the House?

WTF are you talking about?
It’s TPX that seems to have hijacked the Tea Party movement and take power away from local Tea Parties for themselves. I have no problems with their endorsements and support of Tea Party candidates... Until they endorsed a Democrat who did not seek Tea Party backing, and has rejected it in the rudest terms possible. Minnick, the TPX’s cozens candidate, used the opportunity to “spew venom all over TPX and tea partiers on general.”

I don’t have a candidate, but I know a foolish endorsement when I see one. You may prefer the Pelousy supporting DemocRAT over the Idaho Tea Party backed Labrador, but that sounds to me like a serious shortcoming on your part, and the part of the TPX. RINOs have lost their primaries this year over less.

This has been building for yrs and it wont stop.

This NEEDS to change. There’s time to change it. Who cares if the lame stream propagandists say TPX is not ‘bi-partisan.’ Who gives a RIP about the RAT socialists among us? I know I don’t!

This is important, but nationally, on a scale of 1 to 10 - this is about a 5. I sure hope they do something about it though.

Meantime, let’s go and support Raul:

You are right to keep on the Tea Party to fulfill their promise of conservative change. If the Tea Party becomes just another liberal establishment machine, it will die a quick death. I don't think it has been subverted but it does not hurt to voice your honest observations of the Tea Party's decisions.

Now that Minnick has stabbed the TP in the back, it would behoove the TP to confront the people who made the poor decision to support the snake. I'd like to know who did it and what roles they play in the TP. They wasted our money, effort and good will on that one. Mistakes can be made as long as they are recognized as mistakes and provide a lesson to those who screwed up and those who permitted them to screw up. Whatever they were thinking turned out to be stupid and needs to be avoided in the future. At the same time, we must keep errors in perspective of the overall success of the organization.

Rinos and greed subverted every conservative organization while we were being “good sports” and voting for the lessor evil. In the mean time we had few conservative ideas, agenda for reform nor candidates with a mission. Rinos were not at all concerned about us...they owned us.

Thankfully unlike the French we don’t have to resort to using a guillotine.

Pretty much unrelated to Tea Party Express, but plenty relevant, comes word that:

Beverly Hills Tea Party (beverlyhillsteaparty.com) will be holding a rally this Sunday, Sept. 26 at Beverly Hills park — along Santa Monica Blvd. between Canon and Beverly Drives. Parking is along all the side streets —

Time: 2 - 4 p.m. — Pat Boone and other celebs slated to attend.

Just wanted those here on FR in the L.A. area to know about this opportunity to get out there for another meet-up. Hope to see you there!!!

(I don’t know how to post new threads so if someone else wants to do this, feel free!!)
