Check this out! We've got reinforcements!

The Liberty for All Super PAC, which has ties to Libertarian-leaning Republican Ron Paul, a Texas congressman and former GOP presidential candidate, is dumping more than $300,000 into Republican Kerry Bentivolio's congressional campaign in the Oakland County-based 11th District.

The PAC has spent $117,579 on robo calls and mailers for Bentivolio and against Republican write-in candidate Nancy Cassis, a former state senator from Novi. The PAC also bought more than $200,000 in airtime for an ad supporting Bentivolio, a Milford teacher and part-time farmer.

Bentivolio is the only Republican on the primary ballot next Tuesday in the district, which also includes part of Wayne County. He was the surprise beneficiary of U.S. Rep. Thaddeus McCotter's failure to file enough valid petition signatures to get on the primary ballot.

Seems Thaddeus McCotter

..has fallen by the wayside. I was a follower at one time, as he seemed to have a fresh slant on things.
Not so sure anymore.
Thaddeus was in the running for POTUS but dropped out early.
Best Wishes for KERRY!

Time's running out.

The primary is on August 7 and the Republican establishment, hand-picked, write-in Neocon is beating Bentivolio by 16% in the latest poll.


If you're able, please help this Ron Paul libertarian out. It's a safe Republican district, so, if Bentivolio wins on August 7, he WILL go to Congress.




Keepin' it real.

Can someone with

a FB account please tell Kathleen Gray that Ron Paul is STILL a GOP presidential candidate? What a maroon!
