Dear Friends,

I know that most of you, as well as the media, are focused on the heated presidential election, but we can't lose sight of something that is as important as winning the White House - taking control of the Senate!

The Tea Party Express, the nation’s largest tea party political action committee, is proud to announce its endorsement of Ted Cruz in his campaign for the U.S. Senate in the state of Texas.

One of Tea Party Express’ top priorities in 2012 is to elect a conservative majority to the U.S. Senate, and thanks to patriots like Ted Cruz, we are well on our way to doing just that.  But we need your support if we are going to be successful and finish the work we alll started in 2010.
We were careful in our endorsement selection. When all is considered, Ted Cruz’s knowledge of the Constitution and focus on limiting the size, cost, and intrusiveness of the federal government make him not only the strongest candidate in the race, but one of the strongest Tea Party candidates in the nation.
We need representatives that are willing to pursue an agenda that tackles America’s out-of-control debt. Mr. Cruz’s steadfast commitment to repealing Obamacare, passing a balanced budget amendment, and cutting spending show his dedication to conservative principles that force Washington to live within it’s means.
The Tea Party Express has already endorsed Senate candidates Jon Bruning in Nebraska and Richard Mourdock in Indiana and plans to continue a series of endorsements over the next few months

November 2012 will go down in history as the defining election of our lives. With the White House and Senate up for grabs and the future of our nation hanging by a thread, WE MUST DO EVERYTHING WE CAN TO TAKE BACK CONTROL AND RESTORE THE PINCIPLES THIS NATION WAS FOUNDED ON!

 
Help Newt Defeat the Establishment PDF Print E-mail

Dear Conservative,

It has been 72 hours since our dramatic victory in the all-important South Carolina Primary.

We did what the establishment said could not be done and we put our campaign on a path to winning the Republican nomination. We won because people are sick of and tired of the national establishment telling them what they are allowed to think and believe, and you saw that Saturday night.

I believe that we will defeat Barack Obama in the general election, and put America back on track toward strength and prosperity. But we need your help to get there. Will you join us?

Today, our campaign turns to the crucial primary state of Florida. The race is between a clear establishment moderate in Mitt Romney and a clear Reagan conservative with a record going all the way back to the 1970s. It’s a stark contrast. Make no mistake, this is a battle between the conservative grassroots and the moderate establishment for the heart and soul of the Republican Party.

Conservatives are ready for somebody who will go to Washington and speak for them, not somebody who speaks on behalf of the establishment. The establishment is right to be worried about a Gingrich nomination because a Gingrich nomination means that we're going to change things; we're going to make them very uncomfortable; and we're going to demand real change in Washington.

Going forward, there is only one important question for conservatives to ask themselves: Who is the best candidate to defeat Barack Obama? I believe that a second term for Barack Obama will be a disaster for this country and I am committed to beating him. I think I've proven I could take him on in a series of debates and undo his billion-dollar campaign. It's very important that we have a candidate who's strong enough, and tough enough to be able to take on President Obama in a series of debates.

There is no longer any doubt that we can win the GOP nomination. The other candidates are good men whom I deeply respect, but it is time for conservatives to come together and unite behind one authentic, Reagan conservative who can win.

As I write this, Barack Obama and the Democrats are raising thousands of dollars per hour, waiting for a Republican nominee to emerge. He's a radical, secular socialist who wants to reinvent America in the image of the faded, decrepit Republics of Western Europe.

If I become the nominee, I will hold President Obama accountable. I will defeat him in the debates and show the American people that there is a better, more conservative direction.

This is not just a Presidential campaign. It's a battle for the future of this country. That's why I will immediately challenge President Obama to a series of three hour Lincoln-Douglas style debates, and make him defend the passage of ObamaCare, 15 trillion dollars in debt, and out-of-control unemployment. I'll even let him use his teleprompter!

But I can't do that without your help
.

Florida is only one week away, and the Romney campaign is already going back to their old ways of negative attack ads to try and tear us down. We can’t let that happen again. We must raise the necessary resources in the next 48 hours to fund our television campaign for Florida so that I can tell the truth to the American people

Your contribution and support will put us over the top in Florida and our nation one step closer putting a conservative in the White House.

Let's be bold
.

For America,

Speaker Newt Gingrich

Rock Island, IL - January 24, 2012 - Jonathan Wallace, candidate for State Representative in the 72nd District, released the follow statement about fourth quarter fundraising totals:

 

“While we formed our committee after all the other challengers, we are proud to report the most individual contributors,” said Wallace. “Numerous individual contributors and in-kind donations show a great multitude of people contributing rather than a few special interests.”

 

Wallace raised $10,992.04, $7300 in-kind contributions and $3692.04 in total receipts.  Of the total receipts $2442.04 are contributions under $250.

 

“Two-thirds of our receipts have come from small, grassroots contributions,” said Rafe Thrasher, Treasurer for Wallace for Illinois.  “The demographics of our contributors show that people are clearly fed up with Pat Verschoore and his tax increases.”

 

Wallace added, “Our grassroots organization has become a well-oiled machine with a campaign office, staff, and an extensive volunteer list. We will continue to raise money to spread our message of individual liberty and fiscal responsibility in a State sorely lacking in both.”

 

Jonathan Wallace is the new person running for State Representative in the 72nd District.
