  • Ted Cruz Doesn’t Disavow SCF Call to Defund NRSC

    Roll Call ^ | July 1, 2014 | Niels Lesniewski
    A conservative outside group whose efforts Sen. Ted Cruz backed has called for defunding the National Republican Senatorial Committee. Cruz, an NRSC vice chairman and Texas Republican, has not rebuked the effort. This weekend, Senate Conservatives Fund launched a campaign calling on conservatives to pledge not to give any money to the NRSC in the aftermath of last week’s runoff in the Mississippi Senate race. As is typical, the NRSC backed Republican Sen. Thad Cochran, while the SCF and other outside groups backed his failed challenger, state Sen. Chris McDaniel. “The Senate Republican establishment betrayed the grassroots and recruited Democrats...

    Matt Hoskins, the executive director of the Senate Conservatives Fund, announces in an email this morning that SCF is endorseing Joni Ernst in her race for Iowa's open U.S. Senate seat: Joni Ernst is a state senator and a Lt. Colonel in the Iowa Army National Guard. She's also a wife, a mom to three daughters, and a grandmother to six grandchildren. As a state senator, Joni Ernst has worked to limit government and promote economic growth. She helped pass the largest tax cut in the history of the state, which will return more than $4.4 billion in property tax...

    Ann Coulter and TV host Sean Hannity clashed on Wednesday over the tactics being used by some Tea Party lawmakers in Washington. While Hannity commended lawmakers for taking a stand for their principles, Coulter suggested the movement is being hijacked by “con men” who are “tricking Americans to send them money.” Coulter also criticized Tea Party lawmakers who are focusing on “defeating establishment Republicans” instead of Democrats because the party should be united in taking back the Senate in 2014 — regardless of which Republicans get elected to office. The ultimate goal should be to repeal Obamacare, she said. “You...

    First conservative icon Thomas Sowell turned on Ted Cruz, now it appears that Ann Coulter is souring on the Texas Republican as well. Sowell published two columns this week slamming Cruz for being self-serving. Coulter praised the first of Sowell’s columns in a tweet Wednesday. Later, in an appearance on Fox News’ “Hannity” Wednesday night, Coulter doubled down on her praise of Sowell’s anti-Cruz column: ”I never push anyone else’s column but mine. Today everyone has got to read Thomas Sowell’s article.” During the “Hannity” segment, Coulter attacked tea party groups for being filled with “shysters” and “conmen,” naming specifically...

    Washington Examiner ^ | January 14, 2014 | Timothy P. Carney
    Cold cash, together with control of institutions, is what makes the Establishment the Establishment. But in the current Republican civil war, the insurgents have secured their own money pipelines, and they control their own institutions – which means the GOP leadership and its allies in the business lobby have a hard fight in front of them. The firing and hiring of conservative staffer Paul Teller makes it clear that the anti-establishment has built its own establishment. Teller was a House staffer for more than a decade, and was longtime executive director of the conservative Republican Study Committee. The RSC always...

    If you have not heard, the National Republican Senatorial Committee has attacked nationally syndicated conservative radio host and best selling author Mark Levin. They publicly attacked Mark Levin because the Jim DeMint created Senate Conservatives Fund (“SCF”) gives out copies of Mark Levin’s book. The NRSC alleges a quid pro quo relationship to help drive up the popularity of Levin’s book. The book was published in 2009 before SCF was a significant force and had already become a best seller before SCF gave out copies. This attack follows the National Republican Senatorial Committee (“NRSC”) attacking conservative businesses and threatening to...

    Conservative talk-radio host Mark Levin is defending himself against charges that he engaged in a quid-pro-quo transaction with the Senate Conservatives Fund, promoting the right-wing group after it spent hundreds of thousands of dollars on his book. Since Sept. 10, SCF has spent $427,000 on copies of Levin's "Liberty and Tyranny," according to Federal Election Committee filings. Those books were given to donors who provided $25 or more to the group. In that time, Levin has frequently promoted the SCF on his show and on his Facebook page.

Matt Hoskins took over the fundraising operations for the group from former South Carolina GOP Sen. Jim DeMint when he left the Senate in 2012 to head up the conservative Heritage Foundation.

    Using a special method of fundraising that permits moving large amounts of funds to a candidate, a federal PAC has collected and forwarded more than $500,000 in earmarked contributions for five conservative Senate and House candidates. The Senate Conservatives Fund, a federal PAC that already gives contributions and makes independent expenditures for federal candidates, has reported collecting and forwarding $541,565 in earmarked contributions since May. During November they reported forwarding $201,460 to candidates. The PAC was founded by former Sen. Jim DeMint, R-S.C., and seeks to elect conservative candidates, but does not support liberal Republicans, and is not affiliated with...

The New York Times's Jonathan Martin reports: Even more striking, a senior official at the committee called individual Republican Senate campaigns and other party organizations this week and urged them not to hire the firm, Jamestown Associates, in an effort to punish them for working for the Senate Conservatives Fund, a group founded by Jim DeMint, then a South Carolina senator, that is trying to...

    For the last year, the left has engaged in an organized campaign to drive Rush Limbaugh off the air. Knowing they cannot go after Rush Limbaugh directly, the left has launched repeated boycotts against any advertisers who dare advertise while Rush Limbaugh is on. Consequently, some advertisers decided to stop advertising at all on political talk radio, depriving the genre as a whole of resources. And it still hasn’t hurt Rush Limbaugh. Mitch McConnell has decided to embrace the same strategy in his war against the Senate Conservatives Fund. He can’t attack the Jim DeMint created Senate Conservatives Fund outright,...

Mr. DeMint has fashioned a role for himself as an ally and supporter of these candidates, in many cases endorsing and funding them against the wishes of the Senate Republican leadership. This has raised questions about the role Mr. DeMint might play in the next Congress, and whether he’ll function as the de facto...

    When voters go to the polls Tuesday for U.S. Senate primary elections in Kentucky and Pennsylvania, they'll write a new act in the ongoing shake-up of the Republican political establishment that's being led by conservative freshman Sen. Jim DeMint of South Carolina. In Kentucky, GOP voters will choose between Trey Grayson - the handpicked choice of the state's most powerful Republican, Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell - and DeMint-backed Rand Paul, son of Texas Rep.
