Mailer Urges Democrats To Vote For RINO Collins In Georgia’s 10th Congressional District Runoff Election

Mailer Urges Democrats To Cross Over For Mike Collins In GA-10 – Atlanta Journal-Constitution

.

.
Could Georgia’s 10th Congressional District runoff take a page from the Mississippi U.S. Senate race?

Tim Bryant spoke on the radio the other day about a mailer he received urging Democrats to vote for trucking executive Mike Collins in the Republican runoff in the race to replace U.S. Rep. Paul Broun. Collins is running against minister Jody Hice, whose comments about Islam, women and gays have caused a stir.

A reader sent us the mailer itself, which we present above. It was attached to an absentee ballot application. The argument:

“Due to the gerrymandering of our Congressional district, it is nearly impossible for a Democrat to get elected… We, as citizens of the 10th Congressional District, cannot afford a Congressman like Jody Hice. Why you ask? Here are just a few reasons why Hice is too radical to represent us in Washington.”

The mailer does not say who paid for it – and the only reported outside spending on mailers in the race has been by a gun rights group for Hice – so we can’t say for sure it is the Democrats. Hice was willing to assume in a fundraising appeal:

“Democrats are trying to do in Georgia what they did in Mississippi. We must not allow liberals to decide another Republican election.”

He’s referring to the Thad Cochran-Chris McDaniel GOP runoff last month, in which crossover votes from black Democrats appeared to provide the incumbent senator’s slim margin of victory.

Conservative Chris McDaniel Unveils Another Strategy Against Parasitic RINO Thad Cochran

McDaniel Unveils Another Strategy Against Thad Cochran – Daily Caller

.

.
Volunteers working for tea party challenger Chris McDaniel in Mississippi say they have already found 20 percent of the invalid double-votes they need to cancel Sen. Thad Cochran’s business-funded runoff victory.

“We’re finished with Hinds County, and we’re up to 1,500” invalid votes, said Noel Fritsch, Daniel’s press aide.

That’s critical because McDaniel can force another runoff if he can find more invalid votes than Cochran’s roughly 7,000-vote margin-of-victory on June 24. Votes are invalidated if voters cast ballots in both the Democrats’ June 3 primary and the GOP’s run-off on June 24.

However, McDaniel can also force another election even if he can’t find 7,000 invalid ballots, said Fritsch.

“We don’t have to prove that we have 7,000 [invalid] votes… all there needs to be is enough doubt about the election, and we’re confident about that,” he said.

That “cancel by doubt” strategy gives the McDaniel campaign an incentive to collect evidence about possible vote-buying and other potentially unethical behavior by Cochran’s campaign.

So far, there are many reports about shady outreach to Democratic voters supposedly undertaken by Cochran and his allies, particularly done by relatives of former Gov. Haley Barbour.

For example, The Daily Caller reported that Henry Barbour, the head of the Mississippi Conservatives PAC and the nephew of Haley Barbour, paid Democratic operative Mitzi Bickers “to make paid calls to potential Cochran supporters.” Those calls may have spurred many loyal Democrats to cast invalid votes.

In the search for improper votes, GOP officials who are affiliated with Cochran’s campaign are trying to block McDaniel’s search for invalidated votes that are recorded in the poll books, Fritsch said.

“They’re stalling in at least half of the counties across the state,” he said.

Some are “asking for large fees, and throwing up every roadblock you can imagine to stop us from seeing the poll books,” Fristch stated.

That resistance “tells us they don’t want us to see the poll books,” he added.

Roughly 84,000 voters cast ballots in the Democratic primary. To find 7,000 invalid votes, more than 8.5 percent of the 84,000 people who cast votes in the Democratic Primary would also have to have cast votes in the GOP runoff.

However, 19,000 absentee voters cast ballots in the GOP run-off, and many of those votes may be improper, say McDaniel’s allies.

“We haven’t gotten into them yet, but we’re confident that is where a lot of their effort was concentrated, and that’s where we’ll find a lot more ineligible votes,” Fritsch said.

The 1,500 invalid votes already detected were found in Hinds County, which is a heavily populated and predominately Democrat county. That’s because – in a state where partisan loyalties are particularly polarized by race – 69 percent of its large population is African American.

There are many other counties with mostly Democratic and African-American populations, but they’re much smaller than Hinds County.

Big Surprise! RINO-Infested GOP Chooses RINO Kevin McCarthy To Be Next House Majority Leader

Kevin McCarthy Elected House Majority Leader – Big Government

.

.
The House GOP conference elected Rep. Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) Thursday afternoon to be their leader, once current Majority Leader Eric Cantor – who was unexpectedly defeated in his primary last week by a relative unknown – steps down in late July.

McCarthy overcame a late challenge from Rep. Raul Labrador (R-ID), a Tea Party congressman from the more conservative wing of the party, after Financial Services Chairman Jeb Hensarling (R-TX) balked at running for the position and Rules Committee Chairman Pete Sessions (R-TX) dropped out last week.

The California congressman is currently majority whip, the third most powerful House Republican, elected to the position by his peers in 2010. He was first elected to Congress in 2006.

McCarthy, who hails from a blue state, has put a premium on fiscal and economic issues but is seen by some as not sufficiently conservative.

“Since gaining control of the House in November 2010, Kevin and his Republican colleagues have blocked the largest tax increase in American history, cut out-of-control government spending by historic levels and passed numerous pieces of legislation that will help create jobs in America,” his official biography boasts.

McCarthy – viewed by many as another establishment Republican – has a current Heritage Action rating of 42 percent and a lifetime 50 percent (compared to Labrador’s 77 percent and 82 percent respectively) and a 2013 72 percent rating from the American Conservative Union and a 90.4 percent lifetime rating (compared to Labrador’s 100 percent and 97.2 percent respectively).

The California Republican in recent months raised the eyebrows of anti-amnesty advocates with his co-sponsorship of the ENLIST Act, which would have provided a pathway to citizenship for certain undocumented youth who serve in the military.

Both McCarthy and Labrador are seen as soft on amnesty.

Numbers USA, an immigration reduction group, gave McCarthy an “F-,” compared to Labrador’s “C+,” this Congress. McCarthy’s low score this year, however, appears to be largely due to his co-sponsorship of the ENLIST Act. Overall, McCarthy’s lifetime rating is an “A” (compared to Labrador’s “B”).

Ironically, many political pundits have speculated that Cantor lost his Virginia primary election due to squishiness on amnesty.

Smarmy, RINO Senator Cochran Working With Democrat Operative To Drum Up Primary Votes

Democrat Political Operative Running Thad Cochran’s GOTV Effort – Riehl World View

I know it’s not fun to pick on people for their age. Unfortunately, Thad Cochran’s refusal to let go of power all too long past his prime mitigates my concern in that regard. Sources on the ground in MS tell me the Cochran campaign is looking increasingly cartoonish in trying to eek out a win in what most are coming to realize is a lost cause. So, no, it doesn’t surprise me that Team Cochran would hire a Democrat named “Scooby Doo” to work for him at this point.

.

.
This is just getting sad…

A Democratic political operative says he is working with Mississippi Conservatives PAC to drum up votes for U.S. Sen. Thad Cochran.

James “Scooby Doo” Warren said he has put together a get-out-the-vote GOTV plan and is “putting it in place across the whole state.” Warren said he is not working with the Cochran campaign itself but for the PAC and Bishop Ronnie Crudup Sr.

Crudup is the pastor at New Horizon Church, which shares an address and chief financial officer with a newly formed super PAC that ran print advertising in the primary supporting Cochran.

Tea Party Favorite McDaniel Opens Up 8 Point Lead Over Smarmy RINO Cochran In Mississippi Senate Runoff

McDaniel Opens Up Sizable Lead Over Cochran In Pivotal Mississippi Senate Runoff – TPNN

.

.
Tea Party-backed Chris McDaniel is continuing to show accelerating momentum in his race to unseat 76-year-old, 42-year incumbent (36 years in U.S. Senate, six in House), establishment-backed Thad Cochran in the heated Mississippi run-off.

According to a new poll conducted by WPA Opinion Research, Chris McDaniel has opened up a sizable 8% lead over Sen. Thad Cochran, 49% – 41%.

“It is clear Chris McDaniel is well-positioned to win on June 24,” says a polling memo from the firm about the poll conducted June 9-10 with a margin of error of 4.4%.

The poll shows only 10% of voters undecided in the race, a number that should bode well for McDaniel, as most voters should have already made up their mind on Cochran after 42 years in office.

The polling memo says that 43% of voters were “definitely” voting for McDaniel, while 38% feel the same way about Cochran.

McDaniel narrowly defeated Cochran, 49.5% – 49.0% (155,040 – 153,654), in the recent Mississippi Senate primary, however, neither received the necessary threshold of over 50% to avoid the runoff election.

Two other polls, both conducted on June 5, also show McDaniel leading over Cochran, albeit by smaller spreads. Chism Strategies, a national Democratic pollster based in Mississippi, had McDaniel leading 51 to 48 percent. Strategic National, a national GOP pollster, had McDaniel leading 52 to 46 percent.

The race is seen as another “David vs. Goliath” race, with a grassroots constitutional conservative, McDaniel, taking on the well-funded, big business-backed Cochran, with similarities to the Dave Brat victory over GOP House Majority Leader, Eric Cantor.

These recent numbers show McDaniel has clearly maintained the momentum in the race.

RINO Senator Thad Cochran: I Grew Up Doing ‘All Kinds Of Indecent Things With Animals’ (Video)

Thad Cochran: I Grew Up Doing ‘All Kinds Of Indecent Things With Animals’ – Big Government

.

.
Sen. Thad Cochran (R-MS) provided his latest head-scratching comment in public, this time joking he engaged in illicit activities with animals as a child.

“[We’d] get back [to the Pine Belt-Hattiesburg area of Mississippi] as often as we could because it was fun – it was an adventure to be out there in the country and see what goes on,” Cochran said of his childhood and how parts of his family lived in the central part of the state. “Picking up pecans, from that to all kind of indecent things with animals.”

The audience laughed at that point, video published by the Jackson Clarion-Ledger shows. Cochran’s facial expressions did not change, nor did his stance or demeanor. “I know some of you know what that is,” he continued. “The whole point of the story is not just coming here to visit cousins and get to know aunts and uncles better, you absorb the culture and you know what’s important to people here. I feel very comfortable here and have an identity with this area of the state that’s different than any other.”

Cochran made the speech at the Forrest General Hospital in Hattiesburg, an area of the state known as the Pine Belt where his primary challenger, conservative state Sen. Chris McDaniel, massively over performed in last Tuesday’s primary.

The Clarion-Ledger’s Geoff Pender described Cochran’s comment as “a joke, apparently about harassing wildlife or livestock.”

Cochran’s campaign spokesman Jordan Russell didn’t return a request for comment about specific details on what types of “indecent things” Cochran did “with animals” as a child, but Russell did brush it off to the Daily Caller. “I’ll check with my political correctness department and get back to you,” he told that publication.

This could hurt other Republicans, Tea Party News Network’s Scottie Hughes said in an email to Breitbart News. “It’s funny, politicians like Cochran would have been the first to scream foul at this type of comment,” Hughes said. “They would have said he was insensitive, an embarrassment and cruel to animals. Yet do we see those like the senators who raised funds for Cochran at the NRSC this week coming out and denouncing his comments and withdrawing their support? Of course not. Maybe birds of a feather do flock together.”

FreedomWorks, a Tea Party group backing McDaniel, has argued that the GOP establishment’s support of Cochran in the runoff could jeopardize the entire effort to win back the majority in the U.S. Senate.

The night after McDaniel got more votes than Cochran in last Tuesday’s primary, FreedomWorks president Matt Kibbe called on the National Republican Senatorial Committee (NRSC) to ask Cochran to concede the election to avoid a runoff.

“If the NRSC’s mission is for the Republican Party to win in November, they should encourage Thad Cochran to concede,” Kibbe said then. “Last night’s primary numbers proved that Mississippians want new leadership in the Senate. Why don’t we all focus our resources on defeating Democrats in November?”

In response to that statement, NRSC spokesman Brad Dayspring told Breitbart News that while the GOP establishment group agrees that its “focus is on defeating Democrats” and its “goal is winning a Republican majority,” he argued that FreedomWorks’ “goals are at times at odds with that.”

“Differences of opinion are fine and part of the process,” Dayspring said in an email at the time. “Look, last night’s result was basically a statistical tie which results in a runoff. It is surprising that a ‘grassroots organization’ based in Washington DC seemingly wants to discount voters and the election process. Instead demanding any candidate concede, grassroots organizations typically encourage voters to participate in the process. It’s weird.”

The NRSC has – with Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell’s blessing – doubled down and gone “all in” for Cochran in the runoff. McConnell held a fundraiser for Cochran at the NRSC where several senior Republican senators attended earlier this week, raising more than $800,000 for Cochran.

Tea Party Challenger Dave Brat Beats RINO House Majority Leader Eric Cantor In Virginia GOP Primary

House Majority Leader Eric Cantor Loses GOP Primary To Tea-Party Challenger – Dallas Morning News

.

.
House Majority Leader Eric Cantor was defeated Tuesday by a little-known economics professor in Virginia’s Republican primary, a stunning upset and major victory for the tea party.

Cantor is the second-most powerful member of the U.S. House and was seen by some as a possible successor to the House speaker.

His loss to Dave Brat, a political novice with little money marks a huge victory for the tea party movement, which supported Cantor just a few years ago.

Brat had been a thorn in Cantor’s side on the campaign, casting the congressman as a Washington insider who isn’t conservative enough. Last month, a feisty crowd of Brat supporters booed Cantor in front of his family at a local party convention.

His message apparently scored well with voters in the 7th District.

“There needs to be a change,” said Joe Mullins, who voted in Chesterfield County Tuesday. The engineering company employee said he has friends who tried to arrange town hall meetings with Cantor, who declined their invitations.

Tiffs between the GOP’s establishment and tea party factions have flared in Virginia since tea party favorite Ken Cuccinelli lost last year’s gubernatorial race. Cantor supporters have met with stiff resistance in trying to wrest control of the state party away from tea party enthusiasts, including in the Cantor’s home district.

Brat teaches at Randolph-Macon College, a small liberal arts school north of Richmond. He raised just more than $200,000 for his campaign, according to the most recent campaign finance reports.

Beltway-based groups also spent heavily in the race. The American Chemistry Council, whose members include many blue chip companies, spent more than $300,000 on TV ads promoting Cantor. It’s the group’s only independent expenditure so far this election year. Political arms of the American College of Radiology, the National Rifle Association and the National Association of Realtors had five-figure independent spending to promote Cantor.

Brat offset the cash disadvantage with endorsements from conservative activists like radio host Laura Ingraham, and with help from local tea party activists angry at Cantor.

Much of the campaign centered on immigration, where critics on both sides have recently taken aim at Cantor.

Brat has accused the House majority leader of being a top cheerleader for “amnesty” for immigrants in the U.S. illegally. Cantor has responded forcefully by boasting in mailers of blocking Senate plans “to give illegal aliens amnesty.”

It was a change in tone for Cantor, who has repeatedly voiced support for giving citizenship to certain immigrants brought illegally to the country as children. Cantor and House GOP leaders have advocated a step-by-step approach rather than the comprehensive bill backed by the Senate. They’ve made no move to bring legislation to a vote and appear increasingly unlikely to act this year.

Cantor, a former state legislator, was elected to Congress in 2000. He became majority leader in 2011.
