Bob Corker Strikes Again
I’m writing to share some important information with you related to three critical U.S. Senate elections.
Please take a minute to read this update and then take action to help build a conservative Senate!
TENNESSEE – MARSHA BLACKBURN
Senator Bob Corker (R-TN) just can’t stop helping the Democrats. It was bad enough that he helped President Obama enact the Iran nuclear deal and now he’s doing everything he can to undermine conservative Rep. Marsha Blackburn (R-TN) in her bid for the U.S. Senate. In fact, he’s rooting for her opponent!
This week, Corker went out of his way to praise Phil Bredesen (D-TN). “I think he’s got real appeal — I don’t think it, I know it,” Corker told reporters at a breakfast in Washington. “He was a very good mayor, a very good governor, a very good business person,” Corker said.
Senator Corker is apparently so upset that Republicans in Tennessee want him to retire that he’s decided to help the Democrats. Unfortunately, this will make it even harder for Marsha Blackburn to win this race.
WEST VIRGINIA – PATRICK MORRISEY
The Republican primary in West Virginia is a race between conservative state Attorney General Patrick Morrisey (R-WV), liberal Congressman Evan Jenkins (R-WV), and former coal-executive Don Blankenship (R-WV).
Morrisey will fight for our principles, Jenkins will lock arms with Senator Mitch McConnell (R-KY) and betray us, and Blankenship will likely lose to Senator Joe Manchin (D-WV) given the fact that he went to prison for mine safety violations.
Now is the time for conservatives to dig deep and help Patrick Morrisey win this race.
He’s being attacked by Evan Jenkins on TV and he needs help to respond so West Virginia Republicans know the truth about his record. Also, early voting begins next week so it’s important for Morrisey to get help soon.
TEXAS – TED CRUZ
Not only did liberal Congressman Beto O’Rourke (D-TX) raise a whopping $6.7 million in the first quarter of 2018 for his campaign to unseat Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX), but now there’s a new poll showing him trailing Cruz by only 3 points!!
The Quinnipiac University poll found 47% support for Cruz and 44% for O’Rourke.
The poll surveyed registered voters as opposed to likely voters so it’s an imperfect measurement of the race. But … and this is important … the poll shows that if O’Rourke and the Democrats find a way to increase their voter turnout, they could win this race.
Conservatives ignore this race at their own peril. We must continue to help Senator Cruz raise the funds he needs to compete with his opponent’s fundraising machine.
Thank you for being part of our team and for doing so much to support conservative leadership in Washington.
