  • The National Rifle Assn. is urging its California members to vote against Republican Senate candidate Tom Campbell "to protect your gun rights and hunting heritage in California."

    The bright orange postcard, which went out over the weekend, faults Campbell for favoring gun show regulations, a waiting period for handgun purchases and restrictions on the sale of semiautomatic assault weapons.
    Another reason Tom Campbell is Barbara Boxer Light

  • Here are the 15 candidates endorsed by Palin over the social networking website:

    * Susana Martinez for governor of New Mexico, May 16
    * Nikki Haley for governor of South Carolina, May 14
    * Carly Fiorina for Senate in California, May 6
    * Tom Emmer for governor of Minnesota, April 29
    * Tim Burns for Congress in Pennsylvania, April 26
    * Vaughn Ward for Congress in Idaho, March 29
    * Adam Kinzinger for congress in Illinois, March 29
    * Allen West for Congress in Florida, March 29
    * Sean Duffy for Congress in Wisconsin, Feb. 17
    * Rick Perry for governor of Texas, Jan. 20
    * Michele Bachmann for Congress in Minnesota, Jan. 20
    * John McCain for Senate in Arizona, Jan. 20
    * Chris Christie for governor of New Jersey, Oct. 27
    * Bob McDonnell for governor of Virginia, Oct. 27
    * Doug Hoffman for Congress in New York, Oct. 22

  • Three days later, Palin was out stumping for Rep Michele Bachmann proclaiming: “Someone better tell Washington that that pink elephant is on the move…” The footage of the rally was beautifully reminiscent of Hillary’s rallies in 2008 – a female candidate with a wall of women behind her.

    And Palin just picked up steam from there. While the leadership of the Republican Party fumbled around over Arizona’s new immigration law, Palin has stood, unwaveringly, by and with Arizona Governor Jan Brewer.

    Shortly thereafter, Palin endorsed Carly Fiorina in her bid for the Republican nomination for the U.S. Senate – this despite a backlash from supporters over not choosing the Tea Party favorite Chuck DeVore. The Fiorina endorsement took courage and loyalty – both of which are lacking in our current day political paradigm.

  • This is a painful post to write.
    It is painful because I have been, and still consider myself, a supporter of California Republican senate candidate Assemblyman Chuck DeVore.
    But, there is a time to support and believe my candidate can really win and for reality to set in.
    The reality is that unless Mr. DeVore can raise himself to at least be tied with fellow Republican candidate Carly Fiorina in polling, it is time for Mr. DeVore to consider the unthinkable.
    To drop out of the race and endorse Carly Fiorina.
    There are three words that make this a potential necessity.
    Terrible Tom Campbell.
    Up to Chuck DeVore but if he allows Campbell to win then the blood will be on his hands
  • Carly Fiorina tells The Brody File that Tom Campbell, her main Republican challenger for the Senate in California, should be called, "Barbara Boxer light." Fiorina stopped by The Brody File. Watch her answer below and read the transcription beow.
    Indeed Tom Campbell is a RINO.
