Senate Conservatives Fund — http://www.senateconservatives.com/site/printer/1560/four-new-endorsements
Posted By: Matt Hoskins, Executive Director
As the primary elections draw to a close and we head down the home stretch of the 2012 elections, the Senate Conservatives Fund is expanding the list of candidates we support. This will broaden our efforts and increase the impact we have on the United States Senate.
I'm proud to announce four more endorsements for the U.S. Senate today --Deb Fischer
in Nebraska, George Allen
in Virginia, Tom Smith
in Pennsylvania, and Dan Bongino
in Maryland. These are exceptional candidates and they urgently need your help.
NEBRASKA | Deb Fischer
Deb Fischer is a rancher and a lifelong Nebraskan who understands hard work and conservative values. She shocked the Washington establishment earlier this year by winning one of the most impressive come-from-behind primary victories we've ever seen.
Deb Fischer supports all of our policy goals, including a Balanced Budget Amendment, full repeal of Obamacare, a ban on earmarks, and term limits for federal office holders. She's also tough and won't be pushed around by party leaders in Washington.
Deb Fischer is running against former Senator Bob Kerrey who left the Senate and moved to New York City where he considered running for mayor. Harry Reid and Chuck Schumer talked Kerrey into moving back to Nebraska to try to save this seat for Democrats.
Now Kerrey's campaign is being funded by his liberal friends all over the country. It's up to us to fight back and make sure Deb Fischer has the resources she needs to win in November.
VIRGINIA | George Allen
George Allen is the former Governor and former U.S. Senator of the Commonwealth of Virgina. During his time in the Senate, he built a solid conservative record. He fought for budget reforms like the Balanced Budget Amendment and the line item veto, and he was one of only a dozen Republicans to vote against the Bridge to Nowhere.
George Allen is running against Tim Kaine, the former chairman of the Democratic National Committee. Kaine supported the failed stimulus program, he supported raising the debt limit, he supported Obamacare, and he supported a national cap-and-trade program.
This race is going to be very close. Allen and Kaine are currently tied in the polls and have been for most of the race. All of the liberal interest groups are dumping money into the state so it's up to us to level the playing field.
PENNSYLVANIA | Tom Smith
Tom Smith grew up on a farm in western Pennsylvania and mortgaged everything he had to to enter the coal business and build a better life for himself and his family. He succeeded, building a series of companies through some tough economic times. When he sold the companies in 2010, they were mining more than a million tons of coal a year and employed over one-hundred people.
Running for the U.S. Senate after he left the coal business was the farthest thing from Tom Smith's mind, but that changed when an old friend asked, What will our children say to our grandchildren about why our generation avoided the tough decisions and simply passed the bill along to them?
From that question was born a campaign for the Senate, not to fulfill a long-held ambition or to climb the political ladder, but rather to answer that question: Who will go to Washington to safeguard the American Dream before it is too late? Tom Smith has taken on that challenge, and his campaign has drawn the support of a wide cross-section of Pennsylvanians.
Tom Smith is running against U.S. Senator Bob Casey, a first-term Democrat who has an extremely liberal record and zero accomplishments. It won't be easy to win in Pennsylvania, but we've done it before and we can do it again if we work together.
MARYLAND | Dan Bongino
Dan Bongino has built a distinguished career in law enforcement. He started as a New York City police officer and later became a Secret Service agent and served under three presidents — Clinton, Bush, and Obama.
There isn't a candidate in the country who has more passion for conservative principles than Dan Bongino. He's fearless when it comes to articulating how liberal policies have destroyed inner cities, and he's unwavering in his support for the principles of freedom that make this country the best the world has ever known.
Dan Bongino is running against Senator Ben Cardin, a first-term liberal Democrat. Maryland is a deep blue state and it will be very difficult to win. But this one is worth the fight. If there is a candidate in Maryland who can break the mold, it's Dan Bongino.
If you want to really turn Washington upside down and put a true conservative fighter in the U.S. Senate, then support Dan Bongino. He's mad as hell and he's not going to take it anymore.
Please forward this email to your family and friends so we can recruit others to our cause. Most of the nation will be focused on the race for the White House over the next two and a half months, but we ignore the U.S. Senate at our own peril. We must also change the Senate if we're going to save America.
Thank you for your continued support. We'll keep fighting.
