HUGE REPUBLICAN LOSS!
Democrat Bill Foster’s huge victory in the race for Dennis Hastert’s old House seat in the
Oberweis is well known for his dairy business and his financial management company and will run for the same seat again in November, with Foster only filling the seat until then. Whoever wins in November keeps the seat for a full term. Oberweis is not a good candidate and does not court social conservatives.
It gets worse: Hastert's seat was one of three open GOP seats in

Governor Bobby Jindal is 100% behind my good friend Woody Jenkins who is running for the 6th congressional district in
GING-PAC continues to support Woody Jenkins’ campaign financially!
With limited financial resources, GING-PAC must be very careful in picking both House and Senate candidates to support in 2008. In the Senate one we must support is Senator Jim Inhofe. Senator Inhofe has been a great help to social conservatives in
The bad news: the Democratic party and the extreme left, led by G
eorge Soros’ Moveon.org, have targeted Senator Inhofe for defeat. As much as $50 million could be spent outside the campaign to defeat him. The extremists are planning to set up fully staffed offices in
There are 23 Republican Senate seats to defend in 2008 versus only 12 Democrat seats. Unfortunately Republican leaders have put on the blinders and are ignoring a lot of danger signs. As an example, the White House and GOP House and Senate leaders keep telling us that there is no recession when virtually every American knows otherwise. Many of the Republican Senate candidates are running on 1990’s issues that the vast majority of people don’t see as important right now. The GOP needs to quickly move to 21st century issues that have people concerned such as our failing infrastructure and the collapse of the dollar.
I had the unfortunate experience of hearing Senator John McCain speak just after he secured enough delegates to force Governor Mike Huckabee to withdraw from the race. It was just pathetic. He spoke for about 10 minutes at a lunch I was attending and then allowed questions. His theme was from the era of the 1980’s or 1990’s, addressing none of the current concerns of Americans, other than
As for his vice presidential selection ideas, he started off his speech by telling us what a great guy Mitt Romney is, with a “bright” future in the Republican Party. Meanwhile Karl Rove is pushing what he calls an “M & M ticket” for McCain and Mitt. I can think of few choices that would be more of a disaster. If John McCain wants to insult the hundreds of thousands of people who voted for Mike Huckabee, the best way to do it would be to pick Mitt Romney for Vice President. A marginal Christian with a Mormon sidekick is not going to excite social conservatives, particularly evangelicals.
Please continue to help GING-PAC elect pro-life social conservative candidates such as Woody Jenkins for the House, and Senator Inhofe for the Senate. Woody Jenkins can win the run off and the special election in
