About Down the Ticket:

This site was started in July 2008 to promote conservative candidates in Congressional elections across the United States.  This site believes that even if you are disappointed with the current GOP leadership, there are still many principled conservative candidates worthy of support.  If you know of a conservative candidate this blog should support, please leave a comment or send an email (listed below).

My name is Brent J. and I recently graduated with a Masters in Government from Regent University.  As often happens in life, sometimes things don’t go the way we originally planned.  So, instead of embarking on a career in Washington, DC, I’ve found myself working for the Kentucky state government while I seek to return to DC.

  1. Let me recommend conservative Republican Wayne Parker for AL-05. Wayne is running to fill the empty seat left by the retiring Democrat Bud Cramer. His opponent is Democrat Parker Griffith who, among other things, voted as a state Senator earlier this year to give himself and the rest of the legislature a 60% pay raise. AL-05 has voted Republican in the last few Presidential and statewide elections, so Wayne represents a legitimate chance for conservatives to pick up a House seat in November.

    Wayne is a good man and a true conservative. I hope that you will support his campaign.

  2. Brent,

    Republican David Cuddy is looking to get Ted Stevens’ seat. Here is the info:

    Christopher Reed is trying to unseat Iowa Senator Tom Harkin. He’ll need all the help he can get.

    Great site! Thanks for your work towards keeping a “firewall” in the House/Senate. We’ll need it whether McCain or (God forbid) Obama gets elected.
    Do you have information on possible Senate races where we could have an impact?

  6. Well, the Senate is a tougher game than the House. I need to add Mark Kennedy in Louisiana. We could have knocked off Sen. Mark Pryor in Arkansas I think, if Huckabee had decided to run there. Or, ya know, if the GOP had decided to find a candidate to oppose him at all.

    Brent,

    Excellent site! When we get frustrated at Republican leadership, we should look to promote conservative candidates instead of wiping our hands clean of the whole process.

    I think Pete Olson’s in Texas is an important race, but check out John Faulk running for Texas 18th Congressional district against Sheila Jackson Lee. I’m very angry with the Texas GOP for not promoting him more. http://www.faulkforcongress.org
