March Madness in SC4
Apparently we have hit a nerve here at The Conservativist concerning the fourth congressional campaigns. Glad to see the comments and hope we can further drive debate in SC’s Fourth Congressional.
Here is a quick run down on the latest in the fourth, in alphabetical order.
Multiple sources in Union say Trey was one of the top performers Saturday night. We don’t have much more info on Gowdy’s campaign right now but Trey did respond via email to a comment posted on The Conservativist concerning his support for John McCain.
I met Senator McCain in the 1990s and he asked me to support him in 2008. I believed national security and the war on terror would be the two dominant issues in the 2008 cycle. On a personal note, Senator McCain visited an injured Spartanburg Marine in DC and did so without media or fanfare, just soldier to soldier and I appreciated that he did that and the quiet manner in which he did it.
We know Bob missed the debate Saturday due to the looming health care vote on Sunday. Bob has been on a tear pushing his newly found conservative agenda recently, but we are not buying it. No earmarks, no government health care, no cap and trade (he claims he never supported it) and hydrogen missing from his campaign platform, I almost don’t recognize the man.
With Obama targeting immigration next, we are bound to hear Bob’s 5 talking points for the next 3 months. As I said, talking points. We have heard those talking points for four years, but Bob has not lead in addressing the issue. Given the new found conservative agenda, we expect Inglis will distance himself from Lindsey Graham on this one.
We found a website called AnyBodyButBob.com a few months ago. It is rather interesting and the anonymous authors have a no holds bar attitude when calling Bob out. I only wish I thought of it before they did. That would have been a fun website to market, sorry Bob.
We received a statement on March 19th from the Liberty Candidates organization that they have dropped their endorsement of Christina Jeffrey. The statement did not provide specific reasons, but we can only assume it is the revelations of her support of Rudy Giuliani, lying about who she supported for President, or her rather degrading joke about South Carolinian’s being a bunch of inbreds.
Sources also say when questioned by individuals Saturday night concerning who she supported for president in 2008, her husband would answer the question and not Christina.
Sources say that Jim was the other top performer from Saturday nights Union County debate. We have also learned that the iCaucus has endorsed Lee’s campaign for Congress as well. This is great news for his campaign as he works to build momentum over the next three months.
It is rumored that Col. David Hunt, a 29 year military veteran and analyst for Fox News will be coming to the Upstate to endorse Lee’s candidacy. Will provide details as they come out.
We have unconfirmed reports that Thomas will be dropping out of the race for Congress. Sources indicate that there is a serious medical illness in the family and he will be ceasing campaign operations. Although we have seen a decline in the number of signs around the district over the past week, Thomas did attend the debate this past weekend in Union and was seen campaigning for a few hours on Hwy. 176. I will be curious to see if he files in the next week.
Just heard from the Thomas campaign that they were not dropping out and will be filing soon.
