The patient has been ill for a long time, having contracted the political power virus from the Republican Party. On Tuesday, May 7, the last breath of the Christian right was exhaled as former Gov. Mark Sanford waltzed onto a stage and patted himself on the back for a political comeback.

On the eve of the special election for a vacant U.S. House seat in South Carolina the chairman of the very conservative Government Is Not God – PAC has very publicly refused to endorse the confessed adulterer who as Commander-in-Chief of South Carolina deserted his post for several days for a “hook-up” he had arranged online. Chairman William J. Murray commented, “The election of Mark Stanford would cement the view of many social conservatives that the Republican Party views social conservatives as not essential to the future of the party.”
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.
We write to express our great displeasure with the RNC commissioned report titled Growth and Opportunity Project. As individuals and organizations which represent millions of grassroots, faith-based voters who have supported (politically and financially) thousands of Republican candidates who share our values, we write to say:
The Republican Party makes a huge historical mistake if it intends to dismantle this coalition by marginalizing social conservatives and avoiding the issues which attract and energize them by the millions.
GING-PAC endorsed House candidate Curtis Bostic of South Carolina has just won two more important endorsements for his runoff race on April 2. James Dobson, former head of Focus on the Family and Concerned Women for America’s PAC, have given their support to Bostic’s run against disgraced former S.C. governor Mark Sanford.
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.
Former GING-PAC endorsed Congressman Allen West (R-FL) gave a powerful speech earlier this week at the CPAC conference in Washington, D.C. Watch it!
Rep. Jeff Fortenberry (R-NE) has announced that he is considering a run for the Senate seat that will be vacated by Senator Mike Johanns in 2014.
According to Fortenberry:
“Most importantly, today is a day to thank Mike Johanns for his distinguished career of service; he is a model public servant. Given this turn of events, I feel compelled to say I will consider a run for the United States Senate. I will listen to Nebraskans, explore the questions of how I might most effectively serve, and weigh the demands of such an endeavor with my family.”
South Carolina’s Congressional Delegation is known across the country and in Washington for being a united voice for conservatism. In fact, we’ve earned a reputation of working together, standing on principle and protecting South Carolina values. It’s important to ensure that the person who replaces Tim Scott be a reliable conservative, a proven fighter and a leader who will join our mission to cut wasteful Washington spending.
“I’m convinced the best person for the job is Larry Grooms.”
This morning, GING-PAC co-sponsored the 2013 Eric Cantor Annual Campaign Breakfast. Cantor is the Majority Leader in Congress – second to Speaker of the House John Boehner.
The campaign breakfast included such stalwarts of the GOP as Virginia Governor Bob McDonnell, Governor Bobby Jindall of Louisiana, and many prominent Virginia politicians including Virginia Delegate’s Speaker of the House Bill Howell.
