for May 2, 2012 meeting
We will review races, candidates, strategies for voter guide preparation.
Instead of sending out different emails with different races, my family "think tank" (which we call P.A.V.E.) has created our own website! On the site, you can click on the different races: Governors, Senators, House and CA Legislature-- and find our recommendations of who to support. The CA Initiatives will be added to the site soon and I will alert you.
Please pass our website on to others! The goal is to guide people to 1) DONATE to the races, 2) PASS this on 3) VOLUNTEER for these candidates and 4) VOTE for these candidates if you live in thier districts.
Remember: we are focusing on just the "toss-up" races, where a (vetted) Republican can win but needs help.This is where your money and time can make the most difference! If the race is likely GOP or likely Democrat, we have not included it. Most of our recommendations are for true conservatives, though sometimes we recommend Republicans that are not perfect but are better than the Democrat and have a chance of winning.
Some scary ones: House members Allen West and Steve King are vulnerable! Senator Scott Brown is vulnerable to that socialist Elizabeth Warren!
Please pass on!!! This is our last chance to save our beloved country!!!!
From Lana:CPLC's 2012Voter Guides!
Do you know where candidates stand on Life? Make sure you do and vote accordingly!Are you and your friends registered to vote? Make sure you are. If need be why not sponsor a voter registration day at your church?This year we have two different voter tools. The first is an educational piece that outlines the stated positions of the candidates. This can be distributed at churches, in groups where issues are discussed, in literally any forum, as it informs the voter of public policy positions of the candidates on the ballot.The second piece goes beyond this educational approach and indicates those candidates who have been endorsed by California ProLife PAC, and in federal races the National Right to Life PAC.
Please feel free to download, and print out as many as you'd like. Forward to your friends. Get the word out.Please remember to vote as if Life depended on it ... because it does!Click Here for Voter Guides!Sincerely,
Central Valley Tea Party (CA) Voter Guide
