I thought someone did this back for the 2010 election but I have not seen anything related to the 2012 election cycle. I would be willing to help get this going. As I see it, if we are not capturing this info and then vetting these folks ourselves then we have no one to blame but ourselves. For example Pam Bondi and Connie Mack out of FLA had tea party support and even SP endorsed them in their races but they are far from the pure tea party conservatives we want to see elected right? If you are interested or know of an easy way to kick this off please Freep mail me. If this is already happening and I am just not seeing it please point me to it so I can participate!
CPT Jenerette is now in civil affairs and appears to have previously been a military journalist in her NCO days. Not that an Army officer needs a civilian defending her — I think she is perfectly capable of defending herself — but I posted a few comments defending her.
Key excerpt from what I wrote: “I respect people's right to oppose women in the military but that's not my position, and it has not been the position of the United States military for over seven decades. As far as I can tell, CPT Jenerette is doing things that women were allowed to do in the Army even before World War II broke out.”
Clarification on that: my point was that women have been able to do civil affairs and public affairs work since before World War II, not that women could go to jump school and take military police training during World War II. Based on what I've read of the situation in World War II, women nurses and other women serving in the military often got additional training through informal channels from experienced combat veterans with whom they were serving, or learned the hard way if their units were attacked. Under current conditions with no front lines, even civilians serving as embedded reporters are seeking out training so they can survive if their units are attacked, so why shouldn't we give military women the training they need to survive?
no .....LTC.Ret is running not MestaMachine look at post 29
The North Texas Tea Party, Kelly Shackelford, Cathie Adams, David Barton, Ken Paxton, Jodie Laudenberg, Texas Right to Life, Texans for Fiscal Reponsibility, Young Conservatives of Texas, and Texas Association of Business
are all endorsing Scott Turner for the new district HD 33. The NRA gives him an A rating.
From Teaxas Election Central
It would be a good idea to keep this thread as the main thread and just post the urls to new info on any state’s Central. All in one place. Those who are interested in other states could just navigate on over.
Smack me now...
TEXAS. Fingernails need chopped off quick!
I’m still debating between Dr. Donna Campbell - TX SD 25 and Donna Costa for TX SD 25. I love Donna’s message.
Found this after following link in #17:
Not all states listed yet.
Kentucky 4th and 6th district House candidates.
Jack Hoogendyk in MI-6
This primary is on August 7
“... a lot of them want to support Jack because people know him, hes a conservative and a real straight-shooting guy, Clem said.
The Southwest Michigan Tea Party Patriots will not endorse a candidate in the primary. But if party members support Hoogendyk as a block, they could have a significant impact on the election...”
