NRSC Now Interferes in Colorado Primary

Thanks to John Hawkins of Right Wing News for alerting us to this Denver Post article by Lynn Bartels:
The chairman of the Colorado Republican Party says he plans to inform a national GOP group today that it created a "backlash" by registering two domain names for potential U.S. Senate candidate Jane Norton.
Dick Wadhams pointed to a rash of e-mails during the weekend among Colorado Republicans who are upset with the National Republican Senatorial Committee, which they believe is playing favorites in the crowded 2010 primary field. . . .
One e-mail was written by Le Moine Dowd and distributed by Scott Starin, chairman of the Boulder County Republican Party. The subject line reads, "Send this to every Republican you know."
She wrote that the "the endorsement of Jane Norton by the NRSC is essentially a deathblow for all other candidates."
"Do we want the NRSC deciding our candidate? Does this action by the NRSC make the primary election irrelevant? Does it make the Colorado Republican Party irrelevant?" she asked. . . .READ MORE HERE
Also be sure to read the rest of the column where John Hawkins explains that the NRSC has also been meddling in the California GOP primary.

Any reader in Colorado wondering "what can I do?" should phone the Colorado State GOP at (303) 758-3333 or send an e-mail to State Party Chairman Dick Wadhams. Tell the state party officials you support their stand against the NRSC's illegitimate interference in Republican primaries.

The entire point of NOT ONE RED CENT is to defend the right of Republican grassroots voters to choose their own candidates without being stomped on by the clueless idiots at GOP-HQ in Washington who have been running the Republican Party into the ground. Don't let anybody in D.C. tell you who to vote for.

However, it's about time conservative grassroots asked themselves whether the NRSC's support of any Republican candidate in a contested primary should be considered the political Kiss Of Death. Hasta la vista, Jane Norton!


  1. Dear Not One Red Cent,

    The NRSC has been committed to finding real Republican candidates for a long time. I was chosen to lead this organization because of my great political skills and magnificent intelligence. I was a judge, you know. Charlie Crist can win because he is a moderate, populist who says stuff about global warming that some dopes might believe in. Religious people in Florida might like the fact that he shares Jesus' last name. I base this reasoning on the fact that I serve in the Senate and you don't. That means shut your mouth and don't question me boy! I was a judge, you know.

    Crist is like our version of David Cameron, who is set to win his country's general election next year. Actually, Mitt Romney could fill in that void as well. Marco Rubio may be young, attractive, Hispanic and has a real set of conservative and libertarian values to stand upon without backing down, but Crist is the Governor and is therefore automatically popular. I should know these things. Remember, I was a judge, you know.

    I was upset at how Gordon Smith, Liz Dole, John Sununu, Ted Stevens and all of the others lost in 2008. I noticed a pattern with why these incumbents and some of the challengers for the other seats lost. I realized that we have to be more moderate! We're trying to let the Democrats lead on healthcare, energy and taxes in general, but a certain former Governor from Alaska isn't playing by my rules.

    Obama won because people love big government, no matter what the cost. Colin Powell said we ought to do the same and he voted for Obama. We can out do those varmints. I was on the Texas Supreme Court and served as the Texas Attorney General for crying out loud! I has credentials!

    In conclusion, primary voters in New Hampshire, Nevada, California and anywhere else we need to interfere in should take notice to whom my gang of senile career political insiders endorse. We can't let grassroots jerks like you ruin our party. We've been making strides since 2006 and we need more $$$ to get moderate softies elected to the US Senate. If you don't want to do it for me, then do it for Mrs. Snowe and Mrs. Collins. They'll do anything for our President.

    Yours Truly,
    Sen. "Big Bad" John Cornyn

    PS: Give us money now.

  2. Anon,

    That would be hilarious if it wasn't so close to his 'truth'.
