New Jersey Governor Chris Christie botched an opportunity to appoint a strong conservative to the U.S. Senate to serve out the term of Frank Lautenberg, who died on June 3rd, 2013. Instead, Christie appointed an interim Senator and called for an unnecessary special election. Christie, who has a record of kissing up to Obama, undermined the Republican Party in New Jersey and hurt the minority party in the U.S. Senate by not making an appointment of a Republican.

We lost a key GOP primary election in South Carolina recently. Voters in the GOP primary chose Mark Sanford, a confessed adulterer, over a strong social conservative in the 1st Congressional District. GING-PAC had supported two social conservatives in that race, but South Carolinian Republicans apparently figured a man who was unfaithful to his wife would be a good choice to run against liberal Elizabeth Colbert Busch in the special election in June. The South Carolina GOP has just handed over the 1st Congressional District to a leftist. It had been firmly in the hands of conservatives for years.
Larry Grooms continues to receive endorsements from seated congressmen for the 1st congressional special election in South Carolina while Fox News continues to puff the son of left-wing nut Ted Turner for the open seat. Congressman Trent Franks asks why Obama never says a critical word about the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt. Popular Senator Johanns has announced he will not run again / President Obama appears ready to extradite a German family who seek to stay in the USA because they will be jailed for home-schooling their children, Meanwhile Obama has release over 2,000 illegals from jail who are convicted criminals.
GING-PAC endorses Larry Grooms for Congress in the South Carolina 1st District race! State Senator Larry Grooms has a solid record of upholding traditional marriage, the sanctity of human life, a strong national security and limited government. He’s both a social and economic conservative. Larry faces a primary challenge in March, with the special election to be held in May.
GING-PAC helped elect socially conservative Senators Cruz (R-TX) and Deb Fischer (R-NE). Please note that not a single economic conservative candidate backed by Karl Rove’s PAC won. Every candidate Rove backed that ran away from social issues lost.
Another newspaper ad campaign has been launched by GING-PAC against Barack Obama – showing that he is the “Apologizer-in-Chief” for America’s greatness.
With only days left before the November elections, we urgently need your assistance to place these ads strategically around the nation!
The ad copy describes how Obama and Hillary Clinton routinely apologize to radical Muslims for our nation’s heritage of free speech, our economic power and our military strength around the world. But, they never apologize to Christians for the offenses committed against them by Muslims around the world.
Several of our GING-PAC endorsed candidates spoke at the Values Voter Summit this weekend in Washington, D.C. And, we had a booth there and got to meet hundreds of attendees.
Among those candidates or friends of GING-PAC who spoke were Senator Jim DeMint, Rep. Eric Cantor, Senate candidate Ted Cruz, Rep. Jim Jordan and Rep. Michele Bachmann, who gave a powerful speech on the dangers of radical Islam to our country.
We have a dedicated group of social conservatives running this year and we need your help to get them elected! The election of Ted Cruz to the Senate could help tip the scales for us and take control of the Senate away from the swarmy Harry Reid! this update contains more details on our candidates campaigns.
