GOP Taps Sarah Palin’s Endorsees For Help With Transition To Power

Posted by Gary P Jackson on November 9, 2010

By Gary P Jackson

The Republican Party has chosen three of Sarah Palin’s candidates to be party of the team that will help with the transition of power in the House of Representatives.

These new members of Congress are:

Adam Kinzinger of Illinois:

Tim Scott of South Carolina:

Martha Roby of Alabama:

From the Associated Press:

WASHINGTON — House Republicans have tapped two newly elected congressmen who drew tea party backing in their campaigns to help lead the party’s transition to power.

Adam Kinzinger of Illinois and Tim Scott of South Carolina, who won endorsements by Sarah Palin and support from tea party activists, are part of a newly named 22-member team charged with crafting new rules and smoothing the GOP’s shift from minority to majority.

The team, led by Rep. Greg Walden of Oregon and headquartered in the basement of the Capitol, is to meet Monday night and Tuesday. It includes several seasoned veterans and influential members like 15-term Rep. David Dreier of California, in line for his second stint as head of the powerful Rules Committee, Rep. Paul Ryan of Wisconsin, in line to head the Budget Committee, and Rep. Pete Sessions of Texas, the GOP campaign committee chief.

Rep. Doc Hastings of Washington, one of a large crop of GOP lawmakers who came to Congress 16 years ago, the last time Republicans seized control of the House, is part of the group.

Two other freshmen, Cory Gardner of Colorado and Martha Roby of Alabama, are also on the roster.

Walden said he didn’t choose the team based on whether they had tea party backing, telling reporters last week that he wasn’t sure whether those he was recruiting were supported by the conservative-libertarian movement. “It’s a nice cross-section of our Republican conference,” he said of the group.

But it’s clear Republicans are aware that the grass-roots movement that helped propel them to big wins in last week’s elections will be an important part of their new House majority and bolstered Senate minority.

Many of the newly elected Republicans are political novices, including a pizzeria owner and a gospel singer. All four first-termers on the transition team have some degree of experience in elected office; Scott and Gardner have been state legislators while Roby has served as a city councilwoman and Kinzinger on a county board.

Landslide! Nikki Haley and Tim Scott Win Big In South Carolina GOP Runoff!

Posted by Gary P Jackson on June 23, 2010

What a great night for common sense conservatism. Two really strong candidates, Nikki Haley and Tim Scott won their runoff contests by huge margins, as expected. Both candidates are solid reformers, and both candidates are endorsed by Sarah Palin.

The latest results have Haley with a 26 point victory, and Scott winning an absolute blowout with a 38 point margin over his rival.

From Fox News.com:

State Rep. Nikki Haley, an Indian American woman, smashed a glass ceiling in South Carolina politics Tuesday by winning her bid to represent the Republican Party in November’s gubernatorial race.

Haley is the first South Carolina woman to lead a major party ticket and will face Democratic state Sen. Vincent Sheheen to succeed term-limited Gov. Mark Sanford.

Haley was little known just months ago, but got a crucial boost with early support from former vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin and the Tea Party movement.

Haley beat U.S. Rep. Gresham Barrett in Tuesday’s runoff, riding the backlash against the state’s notoriously rough-and-tumble politics.

She picked up the support of former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin and popular former South Carolina first lady Jenny Sanford.

With her victory, state Rep. Haley moved one step closer to becoming the first female governor in the conservative-leaning state. She brushed aside allegations of marital infidelity and an ethnic slur to come within a percentage point of winning the gubernatorial nod outright on June 8. And with 40 percent of the precincts reporting in the runoff, she led with 63 percent of the vote to Rep. Gresham Barrett’s 37 percent.

[Tim] Scott, also a state lawmaker, hoped to become South Carolina’s first black GOP congressman in more than a century. Scott, who has the backing of several Republican leaders in Washington, led Paul Thurmond, the son of the late U.S. Sen. and former segregationist Strom Thurmond in the runoff. The GOP-leaning district stretches down the Carolina coast and includes Fort Sumter where the first shots of the Civil War were fired.

If elected to the House, Scott would be the GOP’s first black lawmaker since Oklahoma’s J.C. Watts retired in 2003.

This is outstanding news for America, and yet another step towards taking our country back, but as we all know, we still have a battle ahead. We now have to turn these landslide primary victories to huge wins come November.

If you haven’t already, check out Nikki’s website www.nikkihaley.com From there you can follower her on Facebook and Twitter.

For those not familiar with Tim Scott, here’s a short video that sums up his philosophy nicely:

Governor Palin’s Endorsees Win Again

Posted by Adrienne Ross on June 22, 2010

By Adrienne Ross – http://www.motivationtruth.com

Congratulations to Nikki Haley and Tim Scott of South Carolina!

MSNBC reports:

Nikki Haley, an Indian-American woman, handily won the Republican nomination for governor and Tim Scott, a black lawmaker, won the GOP nomination for a House seat in South Carolina primary runoffs Tuesday, a sign of racial progress in the Deep South and the GOP.

[…]

With her victory, state Rep. Haley moved one step closer to becoming the first female governor in the conservative-leaning state. She brushed aside allegations of marital infidelity and an ethnic slur to come within a percentage point of winning the gubernatorial nod outright on June 8. And with 66 percent of the precincts reporting in the runoff, she led with 65 percent of the vote to Rep. Gresham Barrett’s 35 percent.

[…]

Scott, also a state lawmaker, hoped to become South Carolina’s first black GOP congressman in more than a century. He beat Paul Thurmond, the son of the late U.S. Sen. and former segregationist Strom Thurmond in the runoff after securing the backing of several Republican leaders in Washington. With 83 percent of precincts counted, he led with 69 percent of the vote to 31 percent for Thurmond.

MSNBC would, of course, point out the race issue first. The victory here, however, rests in two conservatives coming out on top. While gender and race certainly do not go without notice, what’s most important is that Haley and Scott espouse common sense principles, and we need more people with such commitment, regardless of gender and race.

The appropriate observation to take away from these elections is candidates’ willingness to offer themselves up for service and Governor Palin’s ability to once again catapult them to a place of success by rallying support from Americans who are demanding true hope and change.

The Governor maintains the real focus and tweets:

Congratulations to Nikki Haley and Tim Scott! On to November!

Absolutely…As a man once said, “The main thing is to keep the main thing the main thing.”
