Republicans Need A Candidate That Can Win In 2008

One thing over the past few weeks has become crystal clear. We need a candidate who can win in 2008! With Mitch McConnell splintering the Kentucky Republican Party in half by backstabbing Governor Fletcher, flip-flopping after the votes were cast on Teddy Kennedy's amnesty bill that McConnell pushed through the Senate, and his refusal in the past week to even offer praise for the Governor at his campaign stops, it is time for a true Conservative to unite the Republican Party.

The Washington Post reports that the Democratic Party is launching a new round of ads tomorrow. How funny will it be when we have Larry Forgy as our nominee and their money is left to waste! Many outsiders are skeptical but the Democrats know that the Louisville liberal has split the Republican Party, and conservatives dread having to go to the polls for him.

With the recent news that Mitch McConnell is blocking the legislation already passed by Congress to implement recommendations of the 9/11 Commission from being signed into law, it is time for Conservatives to take stand. Families of victims of September 11 wrote him a letter:

Dear 9/11 Families and Friends,

The bill implementing many of the remaining 9/11 Commissions recommendations is stalled because Senate Republicans have blocked an important ‘next step’. It is called a conference, where the House and Senate hammer out their differences on bills and is therefore a cornerstone of our democratic legislative process.

The bill in question, (S.4), is called Improving America’s Security Act. When enacted, it will improve security on the home front. It is long overdue for passage and as a consequence, American lives remain at risk.

Please voice your strong opposition to this partisan stall tactic. Call, email or fax Republican Minority Leader Mitch McConnell’s office. Tell him to stop blocking the Conference on S.4. Tell him to let the bill move forward!

The contact information for Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell is (202) 224-2541 or or fax (202) 224-2499.

Thank you for your help.
