    CHARLESTON, W.Va. - Republican congressional candidate Jay Wolfe, a businessman and former state senator from Harrison County, told Gazette editors Friday that he's been trying to get his opponent, U.S. Sen. Jay Rockefeller, to agree to a public debate this fall, without success. Wolfe said Rockefeller also wouldn't debate him when the two ran against each other six years ago. Rockefeller won his third term in the 2002 election. "He wouldn't debate me six years ago. I sent him a letter asking him to debate [this year], but I have not received an answer." Wolfe has long been an opponent...

    MARTINSBURG - A born-again Christian who is running for the U.S. Senate spoke to area Republican groups Thursday about key issues in his campaign, including abortion. In his speech Thursday night, Jay Wolfe borrowed a phrase that former President John Adams used to describe slavery in order to describe his stance on abortion. "Abortion is an evil of colossal magnitude and it needs to be corrected," Wolfe said. The Republican candidate for the U.S. Senate is running in November's general election against current U.S. Sen. Jay Rockefeller, D-W.Va. Wolfe spoke to members of the Berkeley County Republican Club and the...

    21 billboards erected. Goal is one in all 55 counties. August 11 2008Clarksburg, WV – Jay Wolfe’s campaign has erected billboards that strike at the very heart of the most important issue of this election - high gasoline prices. The culprits are those, like Senator Rockefeller, in Congress who have consistently blocked Americans from drilling for oil in ANWR, the Pacific, the Atlantic and for shale oil in states like Colorado, Utah and Wyoming. “After 24 years in the U.S. Senate, Senator Rockefeller expects us to believe he favors energy independence from our reliance on foreign oil. Yet, he...

    Liberal Democrats are closer than ever to wrecking our economy, destroying traditional family values and shredding our liberties. Republicans need only two seats to win back the majority in the U.S. Senate. This year, we are guaranteed that an extreme liberal Democrat will be running for President. I believe West Virginia Republicans and Democrats alike will be electing a Republican for President, just like they did in 2000 and 2004. In 2002, I was Senator Rockefeller’s opponent and came within 13% of defeating him and he outspent me 20 to 1. That year, there were no Presidential coattails to help...
  • Jay Wolfe for Senate

    In 1984, when moved to Bridgeport with an insurance job, Jay and Mollie both registered for the first time as Republicans because of their pro-life convictions and knowing the pro-abortion political platform of the Democrat Party. Jay has since grown to be both socially and fiscally conservative. Jay Wolfe served four years in the West Virginia State Senate from 1987 through 1990, served on the Harrison County and State Republican Executive Committees, was the 1988 Republican U.S. Senate nominee against Robert Byrd and the 2002 Republican U.S. Senate nominee against Jay Rockefeller. When asked why he keeps going after Rockefeller’s...

    Financial Times ^ | 5/5/07 | Robert Collins
    The wit of Oscar Wilde is often more clever than insightful, but when he declared that “one’s first duty in life is to assume a pose”, he may have been on to something: clothes don’t just make the man; they can, if unchanging in style and sufficiently de trop, make him look ageless. This, at least, is the impression left by Tom Wolfe as he blazes through the culinary empyrean of Café Boulud on Manhattan’s Upper East Side, trailing dash and élan among the stolidly well-heeled and sourly superannuated diners. The writer who pioneered reporting with the intensity of literature,...
  • The "Governor" in Wolfe's "I am Charlotte Simmons" is you-know-who!

    News Flash to all Freepers reading Tom Wolfe’s “I am Charlotte Simmons”: I can personally attest that the story of the “Governor of California” represented in the book, who receives oral sex from a college undergrad coed, is based on a true story. The true governor was the Governor of Arkansas, and the year was 1988 (yes, him!). The event was not a Commencement, with the governor-as-commencement-speaker, as represented in the book: in reality, it was at Washington and Lee University’s quadrennial “Mock Convention”: it was a mock Democratic Convention, and Clinton was here as a speaker. It occurred not...

    BreakPoint with Chuck Colson ^ | December 21, 2004 | Chuck Colson
    Tom Wolfe’s best-selling novel "I Am Charlotte Simmons" has focused unwanted attention—unwanted at least by college officials—on the sexual antics of American college students. The behavior is scandalous, but an even greater scandal is what students are being taught. This mis-education is the subject of a new book by former BreakPoint editor James Nelson Black. In Freefall of the American University, Black describes how “colleges and universities are corrupting the minds and morals of the next generation.” That’s quite an indictment, but Freefall will leave any open-minded reader realizing that the evidence supports it. As Black puts it, “the university...

    NY Times ^ | November 16, 2004 | DAVID BROOKS
    OP-ED COLUMNIST It's easy to write a negative review of a Tom Wolfe novel; hundreds of people do it every few years. First, out of the thousands of sociological details Wolfe gets right, you pick out some he gets wrong (thus establishing your superior hipness). You mention that he obsesses over the superficial details of life while you ignore his moral intent (thus hinting at your own superior depth). Then you graciously allow that many of Wolfe's scenes are hilarious, while lamenting that his characters are not fully developed. Then you call it a day. But since Wolfe takes risks...

    Tom Wolfe on the elite that got lost in middle America Over the past few days I’ve talked to lots of journalists and literary types in New York. I’ve grown used to the sound of crushed, hushed voices on the end of the phone. The weight of George Bush’s victory seems almost too much. But what did they expect, I ask myself. They don’t like the war and the way the war is going, they don’t like Bush and they don’t like what this election says about America. But where’s their sense of reality? The liberal elite showed it was...

    As a member of the Manhattan intelligentsia, novelist Tom Wolfe seems a lonely defender of George Bush's conservative values. But, he tells Ed Vulliamy, he's bewildered by a sex-mad society and tired of being lectured to at dinner parties. So is he voting for Dubya tomorrow? He's not quite telling Tom Wolfe casts his gaze across America at this election time, with eyes that change mood in a nanosecond, with a flicker. For the most part, they exude an amused elegance befitting the hallmark white suit and dandy-ish two-tone brogues. But then the look suddenly changes, to become scalpel-sharp, mischievous,...

    Clarksburg Exponent and Telegram ^ | April 14, 2003 | Jim Fisher
    CLARKSBURG -- About 200 Republican Party supporters attended the annual Lincoln Day fund-raising dinner Saturday night in Clarksburg. It was the first time in several years the fund-raiser had been in Clarksburg, said Dick Laughlin, chair of the Harrison County Republican Executive Committee. Laughlin and other GOP officials were encouraged by the heavy attendance Saturday. The event sold out. "The Republican Party is back and kicking again in Harrison County," Laughlin said. The dinner's guest speaker, former Gov. Arch Moore, agreed. Moore noted the GOP has made several advances in the last few elections, both statewide and nationally. The party...

Jay Rockefeller, challenger Jay Wolfe says he thinks he's close and that he can win. The West Virginia Poll, a survey of 400 likely voters in the state released today, shows that 72 percent would vote for Rockefeller, D-W.Va. Seventeen percent said they would vote for Republican Wolfe, and 12 percent were still undecided. Wolfe thinks the race is much closer. "I haven't put...

    I have been trying to find polls on the West Virginia Senate race between Jay Wolfe and Rockefeller. Most forecasters predict an easy victory for Rockefeller, but with West Virginia going to Bush, it would seem like a Republican would have a shot. So if you have any data out there, I would really appreciate it. Thanks.
