Conn. Republicans endorse McMahon for US Senate

http://news.yahoo.com/s/ap/20100522/ap_on_el_se/us_connectic...

HARTFORD, Conn. – Connecticut Republicans have endorsed former World Wrestling Entertainment executive Linda McMahon for the U.S. Senate seat being vacated by Democrat Chris Dodd.

McMahon beat out former Congressman Rob Simmons and Fairfield County money manager Peter Schiff for the Republican nomination on Friday night.

Simmons, a Vietnam veteran, said Friday that he would force a party primary in August. He received enough votes at the convention to do so.

The winner will face state Attorney General Richard Blumenthal in November. Blumanthal received the Democratic party's endorsement for the Senate seat earlier Friday.

"The convention is rigged," Schiff said, talking to a reporter as the Simmons' entourage emerged from its staff room. http://www.ctmirror.org/story/6084/simmon-vows-primary

There is more to consider, Peter, think then talk.

Peter is new to politics, and new to the Republican Party. Whether the RNC enforces conservative values, many party members do. New men with different ideas are adapted later rather than sooner. Not sure yet, no history, and so on.

One party member did warn Peter in one video I saw, that he might do well to lobby delegate members if he wanted the nod for the Primary.

I don't know if Peter did, no matter.

But look at it this way. The CT GOP gave Peter a softball. He has to get petitions signed, raise money and battle in the Primary, without Party support.

Is this a gentleman they want to send to the Gentleman's Club to represent the great State of CT?

Think of it as a test run for the race against the Democrats later this year.

They have probably measured Peters popularity with the Independents and Tea Parties. Can he win an election? Will his opponent dig up something that might embarrass his supporters? Can he win over enough of the Republican base in the Primary? If he can than he he has the votes to win in November.

Is Peter "Bulldog" Schiff up to the challenge?

Free includes debt-free!

The advertising slogans are limitless for going against McMahon

like,"If you think wrestling is fake, wait until you hear her stance on political positions". This lady will be easy to boot.

The R3volution requires action, not observation!!!!

YES!!!

McMahon!!! '/sarcasm'

LOL, Sadly McMahon has a chance...

Know why> Look at the thousands of sheeple who think Fake wrestling is real...they are real followers and the wife of the sham well...must be a "real" person that we can cheer on.

Peter has the support of the Tea Party and the Grassroots

Organizations. He needs to enlist them nationwide. Phone calls, mailers....Internet blogging....Help me what else can we do state to state. Rand Paul is right the Tea Party is HUGE...It's an army of volunteers...He has to tap that state to state...It will be overwhelming, Connecticut is only 3-4 million people...100,000 voters for this primary....

Just one last kick in the nuts, then a final deathblow

True.

But, I don't even see a widget for Schiff on the DP..

I've noticed

what's the deal. We need a continuous moneybomb for Peter Schiff from now till the Connecticut primary...Why isn't his banner on this site ?

Just one last kick in the nuts, then a final deathblow

Has anyone here heard McMahon debate ?

She's clueless, nuff said...Definitely rigged.

Just one last kick in the nuts, then a final deathblow

Didn't Schiff pay attention

to what happened in Nevada? Of course the convention is rigged. Should be expected. Expect more of the same as not only are we fighting DINO's but, RINO's as well. He needs to start getting some signatures and probably should have prepared for that right in the beginning.
