Many of you have been following the Christine O’Donnell story in Delaware. She is the Tea Party senate candidate who against all odds and amid vicious mud-slinging (reminiscent of Sarah Palin’s treatment in ’08) won the Republican senate primary on Tuesday beating out nine termer, Mike “Might as well be a Democrat” Castle. As you probably know, since she was not handpicked by the GOP and is endorsed by the Tea Party, the powers-that-be in the Republican Party are (shockingly) only showing her lukewarm support at best.
Well, I am writing you today because that is exactly what is occurring in a NC Senate race here in Winston-Salem. The NC Tea Party’s own Nathan Jones, is running against Linda Garrou (the author of our state’s out of control budget) to represent the 32nd District. In addition to being absolutely brilliant, Nate is a good and honest man who strongly believes in the Tea Party principles of limited government, reduced taxation and individual responsibility. He is exactly the type of man this state-this country – needs to help get our government back on track! For some unknown reason (perhaps the Tea Party connection?) and despite strong indications that the race is winnable, the state GOP** has deemed Nathan a low priority for any campaign support-financial or otherwise (you can view the document here). This type of political infighting makes me furious and I hope it makes you mad also. We need to show the Republican leadership in this state that we will fight to get true conservative voices to represent us and that we are done supporting so called “moderates”.
Here is what I am asking you to do. If you are in District 32 (look here for map), vote for Nathan, speak with your neighbors, put out a sign. If you are not in the district, find a friend who is and make sure they are aware of Nate’s candidacy. You DO NOT have to live in the district to help. Every Monday night at GOP headquarters in Winston, we need people to make calls on his behalf. It is easy and fun. You can even make calls from home. Support Nathan financially, since the state GOP won’t! We must show them that conservatives are willing to make sacrifices in order to take our country back. (Donate here). Perhaps the state GOP will change its’ tune if we show them that the Tea Party is in deadly earnest and is willing to put our money where our mouth is! Now is the time for us to stop protesting and to start working to effect real change. We all must all do our part. Will you help? If you have any questions or would like more information, please feel free to call me at 945-2990.
**(NOT to be confused with Forsyth County GOP, who have been nothing but supportive!)
