On November 8th GING-PAC candidates won in all but 3 of the 28 elections we were involved in. It reminded me of GING-PAC’s very first election cycle back in 1994, when with the “Gingrich Revolution” and the “Contract with America,” Newt Gingrich led the charge to a GOP majority in the House for the first time in four decades. GING-PAC has had great results ever since.
Yesterday was a great day for GING-PAC endorsed candidates. Out of 28 candidates we supported, three lost and one is facing a runoff in Louisiana on December 10. The Republicans held the Senate and the House and Donald Trump defeated Hillary Clinton, one of the worst, most wicked politicians in American history.
The 115th Congress of the United States will be sworn in on January 4th, 2017. The next president of the United States will not be sworn in until January 20th, 2017. A scenario is now emerging where Judge Merrick Garland of the Federal Appeals Court, who is President Barack Obama’s pick for the Supreme Court vacancy caused by the death of Justice Anthony Scalia, could be confirmed even if Donald Trump were to win the presidential election.
GING-PAC is endorsing two new candidates for the House of Representatives. Both of them are social conservatives and will be welcome additions in Congress in January, 2017.
Hundreds of social conservatives gathered in Washington, D.C. on Friday at the Values Voter Summit. Many of the speakers were GING-PAC endorsed Senators and Congressmen. Also at the Summit was presidential candidate Donald Trump. Hillary spent Friday at a homosexual fundraiser where she trashed Trump supporters as homophobic, transphobic and Islamophobic.
Among those GING-PAC endorsed legislators are: former Congresswoman Michele Bachmann (R-MN), Congresswoman Marsha Blackburn (R-TN), Senator Tom Cotton (R-AR), Rep. John Fleming (R-LA) who is running for the Senate, Congressman Louie Gohmert (R-TX), and more.

Congressman Randy Forbes was elected to the House in a special election in 2001 with the help of Government Is Not God – PAC. The vacancy occurred with the death of ten term Democratic Congressman Norman Sisisky. The seat had never previously been held by a Republican. Forbes had previously held a Virginia delegate slot in a traditionally Democratic district. His unique ability to win Democratic seats with his social conservative stance had won him the chairmanship of the Virginia Republican Party from 1996 to 2001.
“I am honored to have the opportunity to return to CPAC and once again be surrounded by such inspiring conservative activists. The future of America lies in our conservative principles that seek to empower people and protect the greatness of our country. I am confident that our brightest days are ahead, and I look forward to joining this year’s conference.”
