people of the 23rd Congressional District of New York are ready to
shake things up, and Doug Hoffman is coming on strong as Election Day
approaches! He needs our help now.
The votes of every member of
Congress affect every American, so it's important for all of us to pay
attention to this important Congressional campaign in upstate New York.
I am very pleased to announce my support for Doug Hoffman in his fight
to be the next Representative from New York's 23rd Congressional
district. It's my honor to endorse Doug and to do what I can to help
him win, including having my political action committee, SarahPAC,
donate to his campaign the maximum contribution allowed by law.
Our nation is at a crossroads, and this is once again a "time for choosing."
federal government borrows, spends, and prints too much money, while
our national debt hits a record high. Government is growing while the
private sector is shrinking, and unemployment is on the rise. Doug
Hoffman is committed to ending the reckless spending in Washington,
D.C. and the massive increase in the size and scope of the federal
government. He is also fully committed to supporting our men and women
in uniform as they seek to honorably complete their missions overseas.
And best of all, Doug Hoffman has not been anointed by any political machine.
Hoffman stands for the principles that all Republicans should share:
smaller government, lower taxes, strong national defense, and a
commitment to individual liberty.
Political parties must stand
for something. When Republicans were in the wilderness in the late
1970s, Ronald Reagan knew that the doctrine of "blurring the lines"
between parties was not an appropriate way to win elections.
Unfortunately, the Republican Party today has decided to choose a
candidate who more than blurs the lines, and there is no real
difference between the Democrat and the Republican in this race. This
is why Doug Hoffman is running on the Conservative Party's ticket.
and conservatives around the country are sending an important message
to the Republican establishment in their outstanding grassroots support
for Doug Hoffman: no more politics as usual.
You can help Doug by visiting his official website below and joining me in supporting his campaign:
asked on ABC's "Top Line" webcast if he will endorse a candidate,
Pawlenty replied "probably, yeah," but said that he would need to take
time to review the candidates' policy positions.
But in the interview, Pawlenty only raised issues with Scozzafava and did not address Hoffman.
"As a conservative, I am worried about some of the things I've heard about how the person was selected," he said of Scozzafava.
selection of this individual...seems a little cloistered," he
continued, raising issue about how the Republican Party selected
Scozzafava as a nominee. Critics say that the nomination was not open
and thorough enough. The party passed over Hoffman and a number of
other candidates for Scozzafava.
"The process may not have been as open as it should have been," Pawlenty added.
The governor also said that he is "concerned about some of the alleged issue positions that she holds."

East Coast Races Impact All Americans
Today at 2:36am
I stand here in a high school gymnasium watching freshmen girls'
basketball games, I'm struck by the sight of America's future right in
front of me - these tenacious young women full of energy and intensity.
I want them to realize every opportunity this great, free nation can
There are big political races on the East Coast that
are coming down to the wire - the results of which will impact policies
and political actions that touch all of us in every state. Like other
independent Americans, I don’t always see eye-to-eye with Republican
political committees, so when I tell you that the Republican Governors
Association has my complete support and confidence in its campaign
efforts back East, know that I really mean it. The RGA is helping lead
the conservative comeback beginning this year, and its involvement in
the East Coast races is significant. I hope you'll support these
efforts, which are vital to the cause for America's freedom and
consider the governor's race in New Jersey. The state has the highest
tax burden in the country and the incumbent Democrat governor has only
added to the economic burden. He eliminated property tax rebates for
middle class homeowners while the sales tax increased. Altogether,
taxes on the people in the region have increased by billions of
dollars. It’s no surprise that New Jersey has the highest unemployment
rate in the region! Thankfully, there is an alternative. Residents
there will be better off under an administration that understands the
benefits that result when workers are allowed to keep more of what they
earn. Watch New Jersey's economy come alive under new leadership that
will put government back on the side of the people! Chris Christie
promises this new leadership.
Fortunately, New Jersey's Democrat
governor is being held accountable with the RGA spending $7 million in
the New York and Philadelphia media markets telling the truth about a
liberal administrative record while highlighting New Jersey's
tax-hiking ways and reminding voters there is an alternative! The NY
and Philly markets are the most expensive in the nation though, so the
RGA is requesting help to stay on the air. Visit http://www.rga.org/initiatives/comeback-fund/.
in Virginia, there is a clear difference between Republican Bob
McDonnell and his liberal opponent. Republican Bob McDonnell is
fighting for cheaper American energy and lower taxes, while his
opponent wants to raise taxes and, amazingly, even bragged about having
more earmarks than any other state legislator. Bob McDonnell promises
to fight for Virginia's hard working families, and he opposes some
heavy-handed union leadership efforts that could ultimately hurt
employers and employees. The RGA has aired $6 million of TV ads
exposing the liberal candidate’s record. I encourage you to help fight
for our neighbors in the East by visiting: http://www.rga.org/initiatives/comeback-fund/.
who believe in smaller government and free enterprise have a chance to
show Washington that people all across the U.S. don’t want an
ever-increasing national debt, more dependency on foreign energy
sources, and more wasteful government spending. If, like me, this is
what you want to show Washington, then I hope you'll support Chris
Christie and Bob McDonnell and the RGA, as great efforts are put forth
in these East Coast races.
The young student athletes I'm
watching right now are counting on us to do the right thing - to fight
for what is right for America today and into their future. Electing
candidates with common sense and respect for freedom is one way we can
fight for what is right.
