Endorsement: Chris Christie for NJ-Gov!

I have decided to throw my support behind former U.S. Attorney Chris Christie in the 2009 New Jersey gubernatorial race.  He made his decision last week, filing papers with the state on January 9, 2009. 

While Christie is a moderate Republican, he is the best hope to take back the governorship in bluer-than-blue New Jersey in 2009.  He has made a name for himself in New Jersey during his tenure as U.S. Attorney by using the office to go after corrupt politicians – both Republican and Democrat. 

His web site is here.  However, it has not gone live yet.

Bobby Jindal enters the fray in Virginia

Louisiana Governor Bobby Jindal will be lending his good name to Attorney General Bob McDonnell later this week:

Popular Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal will visit Richmond on Wednesday to endorse Attorney General Bob McDonnell’s bid for governor, a McDonnell news release said.

[…]

He and McDonnell will hold a press conference Wednesday morning at the Jefferson Hotel, the news release said. It will be followed by a private fundraiser.

I’ll try to get video of the press conference as it becomes available.

Who knows how to promote small business?

According to the National Federation of Independent Businesses, it’s Jason Chaffetz:

“Jason Chaffetz is the proven pro-small business candidate in this race,” said Lisa Goeas, NFIB’s vice president, political. “A small business owner himself, Chaffetz is well-versed on the issues facing our members. In addition, his policy positions have indicated his support of many of NFIB’s priority issues including healthcare and tax reform, as well as opposing labor initiatives such as card check that would hamper an entrepreneur’s ability to run a business without union interference.”

If Sen. Obama is elected, Utah’s 3rd District needs a Congressman who knows that taxing most small business in a time of economic downturn is a horrible idea.

If Sen. McCain is elected, Utah’s 3rd District needs a Congressman who knows that burdensome regulations against “greed” go against the free market principles that made this country great.

Andy Harris for Small Business

Andy Harris picked up two major endorsements today:

Maryland First Congressional Candidate Andy Harris picked up a major endorsement Tuesday morning in Salisbury. He is being backed by the National Federation of Independent Businesses and the U.S. Chamber of Commerce.

NFIB officials say Harris understands the needs of small businesses. Harris says those small businesses are the foundation of the American economy.

Congratulations, Dr. Harris!  The combination of a Governor Martin O’Malley and a President Barack Obama would be a disaster for small business owners across the Eastern Shore.

Noted cult (of personality) leader Ron Paul weighs in…

In Alaska’s GOP House primary, Ron Paul has chosen to put friendship and incumbency ahead of his libertarian principles and endorse kleptocrat Rep. Don Young:

Paul, the 72-year-old congressman from Texas whose maverick presidential bid drew wide support in Alaska, sent out a letter to his supporters here urging them to vote for Young.

“Don and I have served together in Congress for many years, and I consider him a friend,” Paul wrote in the letter. “Don has been an outspoken voice against environmental extremists over the years and has strongly opposed the types of federal regulatory overreach advocated in the name of environmentalism.”

Don Young is rEVOLutionary?  Who knew?

In issuing this endorsement, Rep. Paul bypassed both small government conservative Sean Parnell and libertarian Republican state representative Gabrielle LeDoux.  But I can’t say that his refusal to endorse my candidate, Sean Parnell, bothers me, as I would be more likely to vote for the GOP candidate Ron Paul didn’t endorse.

Kratovil receives endorsement of pretend moderate Democrats

The Blue Dog Democrats (otherwise known as the biggest group of Democratic frauds in Congress) have thrown their support behind Andy Harris’s opponent in Maryland’s 1st District.

The people of Maryland’s Eastern Shore should know that in some cases, being a Blue Dog Democrat means voting with Nancy Pelosi 90% of the time.  That’s what they can expect if they vote for Frank Kratovil in November.
