It’s a bizarre thing for the NRSC to be doing because there’s a competitive campaign unfolding with many qualified candidates. In fact, as it now stands, the race is wide open.
A recent primary poll showed State Senator Julianne Ortman leading the field with 16 percent of the vote, followed by State Representative Jim Abeler and businessman Mike McFadden tied with 8 percent of the vote.
Similarly, a just-released general election poll showed ultra-liberal incumbent Al Franken well under 50 percent in potential match-ups with both Ortman and McFadden. The Star-Tribune reported the survey “found that Franken has a 3 percentage lead over Republican Julianne Ortman and a 6 percentage point lead over Republican Mike McFadden,” 44-41 and 44-38 respectively.
Joe, I really feel for ya. 3 times worth. :-)
LMAO, ME TOO BROTHER.
GOP is suicidal. They are afraid of conservatives and would rather let the dem/communist win because they have blended with them and are un-American.
Looking at the behavior of today's "liberalized" GOP with respect to the Democrats, I am reminded of the poorly trained dog who begs at the table while the family eats. "C'mon! I'm on your side! Haven't I been your friend? Save me a few morsels!"
You field the 'Best' candidate. In this case Ortman. If the people of Minneapolis are stupid enough to re-elect an intellectual dwarf like Franken there's nothing you can do about it. If the GOP can't win these senate seats in the current situation THEY're doomed anyway. We are trying to REFORM and therefore SAVE the Republican Party from Itself.
I am and always have been a registered republican , but even more so I am a conservative , and I have over the last several elections come to despise the entire republican leadership and I have been frequently writing in my choice of candidates as opposed to voting for the losers the party pick , and watching them lose to progressives like Kay Hagan . I like my progressives with enough guts to admit they are anti-American as are ALL demonrats
SO WHY DON'T ALL OF US CONSERVATIVES SEND EMAILS TO NRSC AND TELL THEM TO WISE UP
WE NEED TO UNITE BEHIND THE BEST PERSON IN THE RACE INSTEAD OF SHOOTING OURSELVES IN THE FOOT. CAN YOU BELIEVE THAT THESE CANDIDATES ARE RUNNING BEHIND THIS LOW LIFE, LEFT WING NUT AL FRANKEN-STEIN THE PEOPLE OF MINNESOTA MUST BE ON DRUGS
Republican Obama party suck butts. Not the real party!!!!
Abeler & McFadden need to withdraw and unite behind Ortman now. They should be seen as truly good people UNITED to throwing Funkman out of office. If possible Abeler & McFadden should target demon rats in the house of representative races to make the victory even sweeter. I believe americans are seeing through the communist agenda & moving to a stronger effort to oust the demon rats & the RINO's. They are realizing that these sorry politicians are not good for America. The best bit of news is that so many of the chicken sh-t old scum bags are choosing to retire & quit rather than face the voters who know how evil & sorry they are & have been. Mr. Abeler & McFadden do as the soldiers & marines do - put the pride in America & your personal honor to the most important level. Realize that Ortman is the leader & quickly challenge other demo rats for congressional seats. Taking control of the house & senate is goal number 1 - impeaching Osama -boden & holedirt is goal number two. Restoring America to a constitutional republic is goal number 3. So Abeler & McFadden be honorable take on the demonrats in house races & support Ortman starting today. Character & integrity matter.
The GOP has become complicit and Corrupt in many cases . They are little more then Democrat lite , and have gotten a taste of the cash flow and must be cut off from a temptation they have turned into an issue of honor and integrity . Rather the lack of those qualities . Time is short , get involved with your Tea Party find people to support and work your tail off to get them in office .
