The primaries are over. Republican turnout was the highest it has been since 1930.
Obviously we’re ready to fight. This is part one of a four part series identifying conservative Republicans who can win with our help.
All of these races have been pegged as either toss ups or leans Democrat. As demonstrated by polling evidence all have been moving in our direction and can become winning Republican campaigns with our help.
If you are in the West here are your choices.
Each of these Category ONE candidates stands for Constitutional government. They are pro: second amendment; life; strong military; strong border security; one man one woman marriage; and free market solutions to economic problems. They are against amnesty for illegal aliens. They are agaisnt Obama’s Healthcare bill and for cutting spending and reducing government.

Colorado 3, Scott Tipton http://www.votetipton.com/ Leans Democrat. Democrat John Salazar.
Idaho 1 Raul Labrador http://www.labrador4idaho.com/ Leans Democrat. Democrat Walter Minnick.
The candidates in category TWO most likely stand with the first group on most if not all of our issues. Nevertheless because their web sites don’t clearly spell out their positions as well as we would require, a distinction has to be made.

New Mexico 1, Jon Barela http://www.jonbarela.com/ Leans Democrat. Democrat Martin Heinrich.

Our country needs each of us to do his/her part to save her. Please spend a few moments to go to the websites of these fine candidates and learn what they are about. Then make a donation to the ones you feel comfortable with.
If you live in any of these districts roll up your sleeves and get to work. Volunteer any way they can use you. If you don’t live in any of these districts volunteer to make phone calls from your home. It’s easier than you think.
America can and must be saved from Obama’s Marxist, but our victories will only come after we work hard every day from now until Election Day. Work like our freedom depends on what we do in these next several weeks, because it does.
It’s up to you: Freedom or slavery. It’s that simple.
