          GING-PAC has endorsed Melissa Hart (R-PA), Jim Jordan (R-OH) and Rob Wittman (R-VA) for the House and added Bob Schaffer (R-CO) to endorsed Senate candidates.

THE HOUSE    

 

           Malissa Hart is running for
her old 4th District seat in Pennsylvania
that was lost in the GOP slaughter of 2006. Several Republicans in that area of
the country lost because of Republican scandals that did not even involve them.
Don Sherwood of her state lost his seat over the settlement of a lawsuit filed
by a miHart2008b.jpgstress who charged that he had beaten her. Melissa Hart is fighting her
way back and this time Sherwood is not in the news. The 4th District is
currently represented by Jason Altmire, who ran as a moderate Democrat and has
since voted consistently with radical left Speaker Nancy Pelosi.

 

            Melissa Hart is a solid pro-life
social conservative who understands the values of the people of western Pennsylvania, and she
belongs back in the House. GING-PAC has endorsed Melissa Hart and we will do
our best to assist financially in her campaign.

 

            Congressman Jim Jordan (R-OH)
was endorsed by GING-PAC in the last election and he won. He is now a rising
star in the House and a strong leader in the Republican Study Committee (RSC).
The RSC is a group of solid conservative congressmen who make up the heart of
conservative activism on the House side of the Hill. It is important that we
get Jim reelected and GING-PAC is once again endorsing him.

 

           WhitmanFishFry2.jpg Congressman Rob Wittman
(R-VA) is one of the congressmen GING-PAC helped to elect in a special election
this year. He replaced Joann Davis who went to be with the Lord after a long
battle with cancer. Rob is another member of the Republican Study Committee and
a solid pro-life social conservative. GING-PAC has already assisted Rob Wittman
in his campaign for a full term.

 

            I attend a lot of events in Washington and some may
surprise you. Rob Wittman put on a “fish fry” fund raising event at a townhouse
near the Capitol. He brought in some mahi mahi that was caught off the coast of
Virginia that morning, and oysters from the Chesapeake Bay. The oysters were new hybrids developed to
survive the pollution that has killed off 95% of the native oysters and crabs.
Rob has a doctorate in oceanic studies and is an expert on the Bay. 

 

            Imagine the shock on a lot of faces
when Rob put on an apron and fried the fish and oysters up himself. He is just
a regular guy who understands regular folks and the kind of man we need in Washington, DC.

 

THE SENATE

            Right
GING-PAC is working with only two Senate campaigns, one for an incumbent and
one for a challenger. We are solidly behind Senator Jim Inhofe (R-OK).
It is critical to the entire conservative movement that Senator Inhofe stay in
the Senate the next six years. He is the man who took on Al Gore’s entire
“green agenda” and has fought Senator Barbara Boxer tooth and nail as she has
tried to ram though legislation that would cripple the middle class of this
nation.

 

            There is
more: Senator Inhofe has been to Iraq more than any other Senator to
stand with our troops — yes, far more often than even John McCain. In
addition, he spends each August recess in Africa preaching the
Gospel to leaders there. He has had great success as an evangelist to
presidents and prime ministers in Africa.
Already we have given several checks to Senator Inhofe and hope to assist him
more.

 

            Former
congressman Bob Schaffer should be the present Senator from Colorado, but thanks to
the horrid decisions of Republican leadership, the seat was lost to a Democrat.
Bob Schaffer was far ahead in the polls for the seat in 2004 when beer king
Peter Coors jumped into the race. The GOP leadership forced Schaffer out of the
race, claiming that Coors’ money and name recognition would win. Coors may have
lost because of his name recognition. This time Bob Schaffer safely has the
nomination and he has the best shot of winning in a Republican state that has
been turning Democrat thanks to the mistakes of the Republican party. This
month GING-PAC issues its first check to Bob Schaffer.

THE PRESIDENCY

 

            According
to Democratic presidential candidate Barack Obama, everything is either black
or white, just all good or all bad. Rich people are all bad. The energy
companies, particularly Exxon, are bad. The financial companies that loan money
to people to buy homes are also on his bad list, particularly Countrywide
Financial. OOPS: his billionaire buddy George Soros is OK, and so are all the very
rich Hollywood stars that shower him with money. And yes, Speaker Nancy Pelosi
who has $55 million in assets in on his OK list as well.

 

            Obama’s
billionaire friend Jim Johnson, who received multi-million dollar real estate
loans from Countrywide, (yes, the company on Obama’s bad list.) is also on his
good list. So much is Johnson on the good list that Obama picked him to help
find a vice presidential running mate. After intense public criticism for his
relationship with Countrywide, Johnson quit the Obama VP search committee.
Obama said he was not going to check on the mortgage relationships of those
associated with his campaign. In other words only Republicans are held
accountable for their actions.

 

            Sounds
like something John McCain could really go after, but he is busy telling
Republicans that he wants to make the nation “green.” John McCain will just not
accept the advice of anyone outside of paid K Street advisers and they think trying
to mimic Al Gore is the way to go. These guys even designed him a green
background to travel around with. When many of us in Washington said the ugly colored green
background he was using at his events looked sickly, his campaign shrugged it
off. Meanwhile the Obama camp used a red, white and blue background everywhere.
Finally after newscasters made jokes about the puke colored background it was
finally changed. McCain desperately needs to dump the K Street guys and get some people near
him who eat at Chick-fil-A instead of Morton’s Steak House. This campaign needs
help and we are being kept at arm’s length.

 

            MEANWHILE:
Barack Obama will be the first Presidential candidate to refuse federal funding
for the general election since the program was begun after the
corruption-plagued Nixon campaign in 1972. If McCain stays in the federal
program he will be limited to $82.5 million dollars while Obama may spend as
much as he can raise. NOTE: A California, Florida or New York
Senate campaign can cost over $50 million because of the cost of TV
advertising. Obama may be able to raise and outspend McCain by a 2 to 1 margin
this fall, as most of the rich favor Democrats. The rich back the Democrats
while the Republicans are busy defending the rich. It is an odd thing.
