Who is running against that evil pig Alan Grayson?
Personally I see him as a conservative who happens to be more darkly pigmented than I am myself; I'm much more interested in his thoughts, ideas, and character than in his skin pigmentation. Oddly enough, those very same things are at the root of my distaste for the current occupant of the White House, and also at the root of my objection to almost everything he does and says.
Pastor Stephen Broden in TX-30. You have have seen him on Glenn Beck. http://www.brodenforcongress.com/Donate.asp. Oh, and he’s black. The humanity!
We met him last year at the FreeRepublic Convention in DC. He is a stand up guy. Obama and friends don’t deserve to be in the same room as he is. He is the type of man who should have been the first black president, not the terrorist fool occupying the WH currently.
Glad he is running again. Hoping he will represent the people for several years. Senate after the house, maybe president someday.
Andy Harris (MD-1st)
Harris is a pro-life, pro-traditional marriage, anti illegal immigration, conservative Doctor and former member of the military who entered the Maryland State senate by defeating longtime Rino state Senate Minority Leader Vernon Boozer (Republican in name only)
Harris went on to defeat an even bigger Rino-incumbent congressmen Wayne Gilchrest. Gilcrest was one of the most liberal republicans in congress and conservatives had lined up behind State Sen. Andy Harris to defeat Gilchrest in the GOP primary.
Harris had the support of the National Right to Life, the Washington Times, former GOP gubernatorial candidate Ellen Sauerbrey, 18 members of the Maryland legislature, and even former Republican governor Bob Ehrlich. The conservatives seemed unified in the goal of tossing out the “RINO” Gilchrest but at the last moment another state senator named Pipkin entered the race dividing the anti-Gilchrest votes.
Harris went on to win the nomination anyway, (despite Michael Steele endorsing the Rino Gilcrest), but Gilchrest pulled a “Scozzafava” (NY-23) after the loss and endorsed the democrat Kratovil... who went on to win an extremely close race in Obama’s coattail year.
With the Obama excitement gone, Democrat congressman Kratovil is listed as one of the most vulnerable members of congress. A November Tarrance Group poll showed Harris with a 52-39 lead over Kratovil. Harris has pledged no earmarks, self imposed term limits, and a repeal of Obamacare.
Harris’ wife is active in the pro-life movement and participated,with her husband, at the Maryland March for Life. This couple is the real deal!
My favorite Allen West quote was said next to a st5ack of bumper stickers at a small fundraiser last year: “You are not putting my sticker on a Prius!”
I heard him speak on a talk radio show last night... the Mike Harvey show, perhaps? Regardless, I thought he was impressive. What are his chances? I know nothing of his district.
