Skip to comments.IMPORTANT GOP House Primary Races: And How You Can Help (Midwest)
Posted on 05/09/2014 5:56:10 PM PDT by campaignPete R-CT
THIS IS FOR THE MIDWEST (NORTHEAST and SOUTH is in a separate thread and West coming later, see links below)
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.
ALEX MOONEY, WEST VIRGINIA-2, May 13th .... Open Seat
ALEX MOONEY -- FACEBOOK -- TWITTER -- DONATE
GOA: "Gun Owners of America Political Victory Fund endorsed Alex Mooney, conservative Republican candidate for Congress in West Virginias Second Congressional District." Gun Owners of America is excited to endorse Alex as we know he embodies the spirit of West Virginias own motto, Mountaineers always free. "
Iowa: I sm listing 2 candidates in the IA-3 race
MONTE SHAW, IOWA-3, JUNE 3RD ... Open Seat
MATT SCHULTZ, IOWA-3, JUNE 3RD ... Open Seat ... 2 CONSERVATIVES trying to win this 6-way race.
Monte Shaw -- FACEBOOK -- TWITTER -- DONATE
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.
DAVE TROTT, MICHIGAN-11, August 5th .... taking on incumbent GOP Kerry Bentivolio
DAVE TROTT -- FACEBOOK -- TWITTER -- DONATE
"I am a conservative who truly believes in cutting spending, lowering taxes and creating jobs. I am an outsider who is not beholden to any special interest. What you see is what you get. I will not tell you one thing and do another. There is too much debt, too much spending and too few jobs because of those types of politicians. We need a true conservative as our Congressman, someone who stands by the principles they campaigned on."
BRIAN ELLIS, MICHIGAN-3, August 5th .... taking on incumbent GOP Amash
BRIAN ELLIS -- FACEBOOK -- TWITTER -- DONATE
"We deserve a Representative who will vote consistently to help hardworking taxpayers and defend our West Michigan values. I believe cutting spending, reducing the tax burden, repealing Obamacare, and expanding American energy sources will create more opportunity and hope for West Michigan families. I believe life is a precious gift from God that we have an obligation to protect. I believe our Constitution and Declaration of Independence are the frameworks for the greatest, most prosperous, and most generous nation ever on the face of the earth."
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."
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.
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 thou art broke, send $14 for victory in '14.
Dave Trott the chamber of commerce candidate without the courage to even mention Immigration or border control. No absolute opposition to Abortion.....
here is the thread for the EAST and SOUTH
and there is a thread for Senate races ...
imp, we received commentary on your star, Dave Trott.
Monte Shaw has Steve King’s brother on his team. So he sounds good.
Kerry Bentivolio is better than Dave Trott.
Kerry is a hardliner on immigration. The last thing we need is an open borders businessman buying the seat and staying in it for a decade.
What is it with you people and this desperate need to call for backup?
Dave Trott on the issues.
As I’ve cited, Bentivolio needs to pick up the pace on his fundraising. He trails both Trott and the Democrat nominee in that department. I’m not strictly opposed to Bentivolio, though the MI Paulbot Amash has GOT to go. If he wants to serve as the Press Secretary for the Dictator of Iran, he should move there.
Here is some discussion of Iowa races (Shaw and Schultz, etc.).
Bentivolio worked as a designer in the automotive industry for twenty years, followed by teaching for fifteen years in schools and institutions. He is an Army veteran who served in the Vietnam War, the Gulf War, and the Iraq War. He is married to Karen Bentivolio, a registered nurse, and resides in Milford, Michigan.
Washington post gives the 11th district seat (Bentivolio) a 99% chance of staying republican.
Creek, Trott is up here cuz it is a group effort ... with further research ... looks like he will come down.
we are only posting candidates where there is a strong consensus that the opponent isn’t worth it.
and his Reindeer
Kerry Bentivolio on the issues.
Back in 2010 he had former students attacking him for being a mean teacher who yelled at them sometimes. LOL
Heck I suspect even Santa can raise his voice at times.
Nothing wrong with that.
This ain’t my day. I’ve done gone and posted an endorsement for the guy running against a pro-life Santa. And once you’ve posted something on the web, it lives forever.
I just went to Santas website and endorsed him. But I will not volunteer.
You have the determination to step up and take back our Country. From the bottom of my heart, thank you.
