“Former Republican U.S. Senator Dick Lugar (R-IN) has donated $5,000 to the Democratic candidate for U.S. Senate in Georgia. Are you surprised?” asks Matt Hoskins, Executive Director of the Senate Conservatives Fund.
Hoskins states, “You shouldn’t be. There’s a pattern of liberal Republicans abandoning the Party. Arlen Specter switched parties when he was challenged in a primary by Pat Toomey (R-PA). Charlie Crist left the Party to run as an Independent when he was challenged in a primary by Marco Rubio (R-FL). Crist later endorsed Barack Obama and is now running for Governor in Florida as a Democrat. Lisa Murkowski abandoned the Party to run as a write-in candidate after she lost the primary to Joe Miller (R-AK) in 2010. Dick Lugar refused to support Richard Mourdock (R-IN) after he lost his primary in 2012. Now Lugar is openly backing a Democrat in Georgia who could cost Republicans the majority in the Senate this year.”
“The Republican establishment accuses us of being anti-Republican when we try to replace incumbents with true conservatives, but our candidates actually believe in the Party’s platform and they don’t leave it when they lose an election. The establishment only cares about the Republican Party to the extent that it gives them power. Once it no longer serves that purpose, they take their marbles and go home. Their ideology is power,” states Hoskins.
“The establishment keeps telling us to just elect more Republicans, but what good is that if the Republicans we elect don’t share our values? Republicans have a majority in the U.S. House of Representatives today, but they have helped the Democrats raise taxes, increase the debt limit, and pass full funding for Obamacare. And now they are planning to pass a bloated farm bill and amnesty for illegal immigrants,” Hoskins states in an email to supporters.
According to Hoskins, this is why the Senate Conservatives Fund (SCF) works so hard to elect true conservatives who are grounded in their support for limited, constitutional government. Establishment Republicans simply aren’t committed to our principles and they can’t be counted on to change Washington.
ELECT TRUE CONSERVATIVES
Hoskins states, “If we want to stop the liberal policies that are destroying this country, we need to send principled leaders to Washington.”
Please support these five outstanding U.S. Senate candidates.
Chris McDaniel (R-MS)
Matt Bevin (R-KY)
Ben Sasse (R-NE)
Rob Maness (R-LA)
Milton Wolf (R-KS)
“These candidates are full-fledged conservatives and they’re equally or more electable than their establishment competitors. The primary elections are just a few months away so please take action today,” asks Hoskins.
