The Directors at Red State have endorsed Paul Broun:
In the battle between left v. right, squishes v. conservatives, status quo vs. trench fighter of the right, establishment Republican vs. grassroots leader, we have two candidates in the GOP challenging Paul Broun for his district — and only Broun is the right conservative trench fighter who is also a grassroots leader. All the others are out to get him simply because he is not part of the status quo, out of touch establishment. In an age of GOP despondency caused by fiscal recklessness and the selling out of conservative values, you would think the Republican Party would line up behind a guy like Paul Broun — a die hard social and fiscal conservative. You would be wrong. The establishment wants a party man, not a conservative.
Broun has two primary opponents — Barry Fleming and Nancy Schaefer. They are both good people, but Fleming is a party man through and through. He craves leadership and will not be a conservative fighter against a drifting GOP establishment. Nancy Schaefer is a social conservative, but, in her years in the Georgia General Assembly, has done little to lead and has been an ineffective campaigner. And frankly, we give credence to the rumors that Schaefer is in the race to hurt Broun — putting her party ties ahead of conservative conviction.
In past years we have not been so bold as to say this, but we will do so now: if you can only give to one issue, cause, or campaign this year, Paul Broun‘s re-election effort should be it. He needs all the help he can get. And make no mistake, he is one of us through and through.
Barry Fleming represents everything that is wrong with the Republican Party in the Georgia General Assembly. He is the establishment’s candidate (this is evident by his receiving more than $50,000 from current and former legislators), more concerned with politics than reducing the size of government or cutting spending.
