But We Have to Help Him Now – The Election is on Tuesday in the Los Angeles Special Election

Tea Party Republican Craig Huey is Surging in the Polls

Conservative Republican Craig Huey has been waging an up-hill battle for the Special Congressional Election being held next Tuesday in Los Angeles.

This is a Democrat seat, just vacated by Congresswoman Jane Harman, but we have unique change to win because of the great candidate that I have known for over 40 years going back to the early Ronald Reagan campaigns in California.

If you loved Ronald Reagan as much as I did, then you will absolutely love the policies of Craig Huey.  He is a total Reaganite, and exactly the kind of tea party Republican we need in Congress.  The election is next Tuesday, Tomorrow!

So when I was beginning my career as a young aide to Governor Ronald Reagan, there were a group of conservative young people who were all stalwart supporters – people like Congressman Dana Rohrabacher, Craig Huey and others who were the real ground troops for Reagan’s campaign.

Now, Craig is a successful businessman and still the solid conservative.  Just last month he was in Washington DC and spoke at the Americans for Tax Reform Wednesday meeting to over 100 different conservative groups.  He was introduced by our old friend, Congressman Rohrbacher. 

Craig articulated so beautifully why he has stayed active in politics and is determined to bring prosperity back to America.

His opponent is another typical far-out liberal.  The only budget cuts she can come up with are cutting the defense budget.  The last thing we need is another liberal who is willing to compromise American security and turns a blind eye to the fiscal mess we have in Washington.  That is why it is so important we rally behind Craig in these final few days before the Special Election.

The far left, anti-military folks supporting LA City Councilwoman’s Janice Hahn are putting up a tough benchmark to meet. Hollywood and the old east coast leftist elites have provided her campaign with a $1,000,000 war chest.

Hahn’s big donors are lobbyists and developers for companies that make money off lucrative contracts with the City of Los Angeles (on which Hahn is a council member). No doubt they are licking their teeth at some more huge spending expected to come if Hahn becomes congresswoman. The only thing she wants to cut is our military!

With big money coming in from people like Bill Clinton and George Soros and his affiliated groups, we have to work extra hard to help Craig Huey close the gap in the polls! The race started out with the Democrat far ahead, but Craig’s hard work has turned it into a toss-up.  What we do in these final few days will determine whether we win or lose.  Please help bring a real Reagan tea party Republican to Washington.

That would throw a jolt in to the RATS. It has got to be rigged though.

I’ll be staying up to see what happens tonight. He does have a real chance. Early vote shows that Huey voters are highly motivated.

It's going to be a tough one.

LOL, the leftists rig every election!

The GOP has got to get on the ball and stop voter fraud.

Here is how Huey got on the ballot:

Tight finish possible in SoCal U.S. House race

Democrat Janice Hahn is the favorite in a Southern California congressional election Tuesday, but the likelihood of a meager turnout, combined with widespread voter anxiety over the economy, could make for a tight finish.

Hahn and Huey Race To The Wire In California Special Election

by Robin M. July 11, 2011

Is the California special election on Tuesday about to become a photo finish?  Pundits are calling the House race, which is in a normally strong Democratic district, appears to be “unusually competitive,” pointing to the possibility of an upset by Tea Party businessman Craig Huey.

The Washington Post states:

Despite a commanding 18-point registration edge for Democrats in the district, tallies of mail-in ballots suggest a potentially tight finish. Hahn remains the favorite, but the likelihood of a paltry turnout in a mid-summer special election means a small number of votes could swing the result.

In a state with double-digit unemployment, a housing crisis and government budget problems “voters are cranky and don’t feel good about what’s going on,” said veteran Democratic consultant Bill Carrick.

Also unusual in this race, a total lack of party identification by both candidates.  Although Janice Hahn has peppered the airwaves with commercials drawing parallells between Huey and Sarah Palin and other Tea Party candidates, she’s been conspicious in not mentioning herself as the Democrat in the race. Huey and his supporters, too, have been laying off of party ID, especially in a series of new radio ads meant to convince female voters to just not vote.

Will this be the next Scott Brown moment, or another Kathy Hochul-esque victory?  Two wins in a row for Democrats could signal a new shift coming into the 2012 elections, and no doubt the Republicans would be more than happy to see that sort of momentum crushed with a Huey win.

I have been following this race for weeks. Yes, it’s a long shot, but, Huey can pull it out!!! Just sorry the Pubbie leadership and we “rank & file did not support Craig Huey enough and help get all our folks in CA36 to get out and vote. Just remember, if Huey pulls this out or, just comes close its a major victory for the good guys and horrible news for POTUS & America Destroyer, Barack Hussein Obama and his Anti-American Democrat Party!!! Good folks in CA36, please get out and vote for Craig Huey and the American Republic!!!

Hey, Ms. Hahn, as a Valley resident, I'd like a 'GOLD CARD' for my parking-ticket troubles, too.
