Top Five States to Watch Tonight

With just a few hours now separating us from the first election results, here are the five states I’m watching most closely tonight: 1.) North Carolina Obviously, North Carolina is a key swing state in the presidential race, which is likely to be very close, but I’m even more interested in the results of the gubernatorial race between Republican Gov. Pat McCrory and Democrat Roy Cooper. We’ve been talking about this race for months. McCrory has been under fire from a coalition of radical progressives, corporate bullies, and special interests for his support for HB 2, a bill that stopped

Will Clay Cope Support FADA?

Clay Cope is running for Congress in Connecticut with an unusual profile: he’s a Catholic convert, he’s for fiscal frugality, and he’s a gay former Texan via Manhattan weekender. He sounds like a really nice guy. Really nice. But when asked a basic question — is he willing to support the First Amendment Defense Act which would prevent the federal government from discriminating against people and organizations that define marriage in the traditional way, not Anthony Kennedy’s way? — Cope had literally nothing to say: “It’s just not one I’m ready to answer tonight,” Cope said. “That’s the truth.” As The

Betrayal of Pro-Lifers Dooms Renee Ellmers

Last night we flexed the political muscle of the pro-life movement when we defeated Rep. Renee Ellmers (R-N.C.). For those who don’t remember what happened: In January of last year, Congresswoman Ellmers — a former ally of Susan B. Anthony List and the pro-life movement — led the charge to stop the Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act, our top legislative priority. Congresswoman Ellmers — who had previously supported this compassionate, common sense legislation to protect babies after five months — changed course. Ellmers claimed that young people don’t care about abortion and that Republicans should not make the pro-life bill

Jimmy Kemp Endorses Daria Novak in U.S. House Race

Connecticut GOP candidate for Congress and longtime gold standard proponent Daria Novak has just received the endorsement of Jimmy Kemp, son of the late Jack Kemp, former HUD secretary and New York Congressman who also ran alongside Bob Dole in his 1996 bid to defeat former President Bill Clinton. In a statement reprinted yesterday by the Novak campaign, Kemp reiterated Novak’s reputation as “a relentless fighter for the growth policies that Jack Kemp advanced…to create 40 million new jobs in the 80’s and 90’s” and called Novak, “a champion of the classical gold standard.” Novak is just the latest Republican

Daria Novak Campaigns for the Gold Standard in Congressional Race

Daria Novak is crusading for the gold standard in her race for Congress in eastern Connecticut. Now, Novak recently has received the endorsement of George Gilder, the living author most quoted by President Reagan and the author of many influential books such as the million seller Wealth and Poverty — the “bible” of Reaganomics — and the new Amazon best-seller The Scandal of Money: Why Wall Street Recovers But The Economy Never Does. In a public statement Gilder declares: Daria Novak’s endorsement of gold shows she understands one of the core problems facing the American economy: the Federal Reserve’s monopoly money

George Phillips, New York Congressional Candidate, Campaigns on the Gold Standard

George Phillips, campaigning for the Republican nomination for Congress in mid-state New York, recently featured the gold standard as part of his economic platform. As reported by Binghamtonhomepage.com, Phillips stated in a high profile speech: I think Fed policy is at the heart of inequality. Wall Street, the wealthiest have gotten wealthier because of this soft money policy. They’re getting returns on these bonds and doing massive investments. Main Street is struggling.  We can’t get this economy going. The Fed has tried to do too much. We need to return to stable money and gold. Phillips hereby aligns himself with

Democratic House Candidate: Keep Religious Freedom Out of Laws of the Land

Monica Vernon, a Democrat candidate in Iowa’s 1st Congressional District race, discussed her opposition to the First Amendment Defense Act that is co-sponsored by Congressman Rod Blum (R-IA) whom she hopes to unseat. Her comments were in response to a question about her opinion of members of Congress who base their opposition and support of bills on their religious beliefs. Vernon was participating in an hour-long town hall at the Waterloo Center for the Arts on April 8th that was hosted by Americans for Democratic Action. “One of the things that I found particularly upsetting was his interest in signing
