Since I'm one of the people who's always complaining that conservative bloggers, columnists, and talk radio hosts don't do enough to get conservatives elected, I think I have a special responsibility to step up and help some candidates. So here are 7 Republicans running for House seats that I believe deserve our support. 1) Renee Ellmers: Ellmers is a conservative candidate who has taken a particularly strong stand on the Ground Zero Mosque. She's also in a tight race with Bob Etheridge, who's best known for assaulting a college kid who asked him, "Do you fully support the Obama agenda?" Renee is a quality candidate, it's a Republican district, and polls have shown that it's a close race. However, Etheridge has a big money advantage. Ellmers could use our help to even the score.
Fox News and their Republican collaborators are the enemy of America. They're the enemy of anybody who cares about health care, the enemy of anybody who cares about educating their children, the enemy of anybody who wants energy independence or anything good for this country. And certainly the enemy of peace, there's no doubt about that.
In other words, Grayson is the real life representation of the bad guy in every Hollywood movie these days: a loud mouthed, bullying rich guy with no redeeming values whatsoever outside of his wallet.
Despite the fact that it's a Republican district, Grayson is ahead right now because he has more money to spend and because there are third party candidates draining off some of Webster's support. However, Grayson's numbers are well short of 50% and as the numbers for the third party candidates inevitably plunge, Webster can close the gap and beat him. He could really use our help.
