Cuccinelli Campaign Says National GOP
Abandoned Them: ´We Were on Our Own´

Breitbart, by Tony Lee

Original Article

Posted By:tisHimself, 11/6/2013 7:01:14 AM

A campaign strategist for Republican Virginia gubernatorial candidate Ken Cuccinelli said that the national GOP abandoned the campaign in its final days. At the end of the race, Cuccinelli was closing in on Democrat Terry McAuliffe, who eked out a two-point victory on Tuesday despite exit polls that showed McAuliffe was up by seven points. According to the Washington Post, Chris La Civita said that financial support from national Republican sources dried up on October 1. “There are a lot of questions people are going to be asking and that is, was leaving Cuccinelli alone in the first week of October, a smart

The RNC would rather see a democrat in office than a strong Republican. Is it any wonder donations from J Q Public to the RNC have fallen off?

Yep. I posted this tidbit on another thread :
RNC spent $2.5 mil. on slam-dunk NJ race, $3 mil. on close VA race.

I am beginning to think our only choice is to start a 3rd party. I have been reluctant to say that, but money is power. We need somewhere else to channel our money/power. The RNC has a different agenda than we do.

Interesting, the McAuliffe supporters started robo-calls telling people that Cuccinelli is a big supporter of Obamacare. Terry won on lies about Ken, and the Republican Party did nothing to stop him. Ken had to do it all on his own. He should have won.

If the voters in Virginia thought the campaign was bad, wait until they are living under a McAuliffe reign of terror.

I keep looking for the lemonade. This could be the last time a Democrat wins Virginia for a half century.

As the federal government continues to employ high priced help, those folks move into northern Virginia. That heavily populated area has been invested with people who owe their well-being to an overgrown government, and as such, will vote democrat.

Add to the mix the employees of national associations and lobbyist entities and the democrat votes multiply.

As it expands outward, the cancer is taking over the host.

I agree #6, in fact I think they are worse than the Dems, at least they stab you in your chest while Republicans aim for your back.

Actually I think both parties should be worried. The Dems because 0bamacare & 0bam lies hurt them more everyday. And the Pubbies because they will have all but lost the Conservative base that have supported them in the past.

With friends like the RNC, who needs enemies? The abandonment of Ken Cuccinelli after October 1st is shameful. RNC, we´ll put this loss in your column. Because of your hatred of the Tea Party, you proved yourself to be nothing more than a bunch of well-heeled political hacks. You couldn´t be bothered to see that this win was more important strategically than throwing a hissy fit against a fellow Republican. A win would have meant a repudiation of Obama and his policies. That evidently doesn´t mean so much to a Republican establishment purist. You would rather savor the defeat of a conservative than of a corrupt progressive.

We conservatives need to establish our own network within the Repub party. Its the only way to get around the Establishment Repubs without guaranteeing Dem victories while we rebuild a Conservative party. Once we reach a critical mass of conservative members the weak-willed professional compromisers of the current Repub Establishment will fold.....to the conservatives. It wont be easy and will take some time...but it is the only way to prevail.

And in 2016 the same RNC hacks who abandoned Cuccinelli because he is not "mainstream" enough will try to convince the conservative base that we "have to see the big picture".

They´ll tell us that Christie is our only hope and that even though he is not a perfect candidate we should get behind him for the good of the party. They´ll say any R in the oval office beats any D inthe oval office any day of the week.

And they´re right, but that also holds for any R in a governors office as well. I for one will remember the utter hypocrisy of the national committee when the fundraising calls start sometime in 2015.

As a former Republican activist and to old to be as active in politics as I would wish, this is my vow: I will never donate to any Republican Party fund. I will vote for and encourage any Republican primary candidate that challenges an incumbent Republican for the House and Senate except for the few strong conservatives. I will only contribute to strong conservatives like Cuccinelli. If the current Republican establishment wants to destroy the party I will help them in any way. They might as well disappear.

If Jeb Bush decides to run for president, he’ll have to defend his family’s controversial political name. But more immediate family concerns might keep him from running at all.Republican donors and operatives are chattering about Bush’s publicity-shy wife, so worried she isn’t on board with a 2016 White House run that they’re urging people in the family’s orbit to make the case. Columba Bush has long been deeply averse to the spotlight, especially after an embarrassing encounter with U.S. Customs while her husband was still in office.

The U.S. Chamber of Commerce, which has launched an unprecedented effort to defend vulnerable pro-business incumbents in Republican primaries this year, is enlisting a big gun to boost its favored candidate in Idaho. In a new Chamber ad, former presidential nominee Mitt Romney touts his support of Idaho Rep. Mike Simpson, an establishment Republican facing a difficult May 20 primary. Romney endorsed Simpson last year, but this is his first foray into television ads in the 2014 cycle. “You can take it from me,” Romney says in the spot. “The conservative choice for Congress is Mike Simpson.”

Virginians: Before you go to the polls in November to elect a U.S. senator, there is a very real and terrifying fact you simply must know about Ed Gillespie. No, it’s not that he’s a former lobbyist (though he is). Or that he worked in George W. Bush’s White House (he did), ran the Republican National Committee (that too) and has said he was “torn” between rooting for the Redskins and the Eagles (shudder). It’s far more sinister than that. He’s from New Jersey. Sure, Gillespie has lived for more than two decades in Virginia’s Fairfax County, where he’s raised a family, gone

After a stretch of anemic fundraising, the Karl Rove-backed American Crossroads super PAC raised more cash in March than it did during the previous 14 months combined, according to summaries of campaign filings released Monday. The GOP establishment´s favorite super PAC raised almost $5.2 million last month and had more than $6.3 million in the bank as of March 31, according to the report summary. That cash will be used as the outside group tries to help Republicans pick up the six seats they need to win control of the Senate.

Hillary Clinton is Obama´s
George H.W. Bush:

There are very few genuinely new moments in American politics. Ronald Reagan´s election in 1980 was one of them. President Obama´s triumph in 2008 another. Both were transformative elections, presidencies and men. And both led to parties that struggled for a voice after their defining leader left the scene. George H.W. Bush was a safe and reliable choice for the GOP in 1988: a longtime Washington hand with a golden resume and a seemingly endless and loyal list of supporters and donors. Lots of folks didn´t like him, of course, inside his own party, inside the Democrats, inside the media and outside

April 15 is a hard day for many, as their annual federal tax bill comes due. But it could have been worse. According to a new report, President Obama has sought 442 tax increases since taking office, though most have died because of congressional opposition. Having included 93 new taxes in his fiscal 2015 budget, the anti-tax Americans for Tax Reform reviewed his proposals since his 2009 Inauguration to determine just how tax-friendly the president has been. Their conclusion: He´s very friendly. "History tells us what Obama was able to do. This list reminds us of what Obama wanted to do," said Grover

Washington - As millions of Americans race to meet Tuesday´s tax deadline, their chances of getting audited are lower than they have been in years. Budget cuts and new responsibilities are straining the Internal Revenue Service´s ability to police tax returns. This year, the IRS will have fewer agents auditing returns than at any time since at least the 1980s. Taxpayer services are suffering, too, with millions of phone calls to the IRS going unanswered.

That tension was evident in meetings concluding this weekend of the IMF, the World Bank and representatives of the Group of 20 major economies: Washington´s long delay in ratifying changes to the IMF´s so-called quota system came under fire from finance ministers and other officials of many countries.

Connecticut estate sells for

A Greenwich, Conn., estate called Copper Beech Farm has sold for $120 million, making it the most expensive recorded home sale in the U.S. Priced as high as $190 million, the 50.5-acre estate centers on an 1890s French Renaissance-style home of 13,519 square feet that sits on 4,000 feet of waterfront. The price surpasses private-equity chief Tully Friedman´s $117.5-million sale last year of a nearly 9,000-square-foot home in Woodside, Calif. Named for copper beech trees on the site, the estate in Greenwich was sold by timber tycoon John Rudey. Reached by way of a 1,800-foot-long driveway, the main house features a three-story paneled

I´ve been a Republican activist all my life. As a volunteer and professional staffer, I held positions in party organizations and campaigns since high school.

Casual marijuana use may come with some not-so-casual side effects. For the first time ever, researchers at Northwestern University have analyzed the relationship between casual use of marijuana and brain changes – and found that young adults who used cannabis just once or twice a week showed significant abnormalities in two important brain structures. The study’s findings, to be published Wednesday in the Journal of Neuroscience, are similar to those of past research linking chronic, long-term marijuana use with mental illness and changes in brain development. Dr. Hans Breiter, co-senior study author, said he was inspired to look at the effects of casual

Toddlers show racial bias when picking playmates, a study reveals. They also take account of how fairly others behave. Researchers tested the reaction of white 15-month-olds as toys were distributed. Two white adults divided the toys, one equally and the other unequally. Seventy per cent of the toddlers chose to play with the researcher who distributed the toys fairly. But in a second test, when one researcher favoured a white recipient over an Asian one, they picked the ‘fair’ researcher less often, the journal Frontiers in Psychology reports. And the babies are more likely to help those who share the same ethnicity, which is known as

When President Obama needed a preacher to fulfill the closing prayer duties at the annual White House Easter Prayer Breakfast, he turned to none other than the Episcopal Church’s first openly gay bishop — who said he was as shocked as anyone at the appointment. The Right Rev. Gene Robinson said in a tweet, accompanied by a photo of Mr. Obama behind a podium at the event: “POTUS ‘preaches’ at the Easter prayer breakfast. Then, out of the blue, asks ME to close with prayer. OMG!” Newsmax said he also emphasized that the words he chose to close the breakfast
